FlixLatino, a subscription video-on-demand service geared towards the U.S. Hispanic population, is now available on Amazon Prime Video Channels to Prime members.
Prime subs can get direct access to a catalog of movies, series, documentaries and animated content, all available in Spanish for $ 2.99 per month. The SVOD was launched in 2018 by Somos Next, an upstart company developing and commercializing audiovisual content in the Spanish OTT market.
Most content is also available with English subtitles to appeal to independent cinema lovers and multi-language homes. Movies are top-grossing theatrical-releases in their country of origin, originally produced in Spanish, from all over Latin America and Spain.
Subscribers can watch FlixLatino on compatible smart televisions, mobile devices, tablets, and computers.
“Becoming available on Prime Video Channels gives FlixLatino important exposure and reach,” Luis Guillermo Villanueva, COO of Somos Next, said in a statement. “We are confident that this will enhance our growth, and further support our mission to provide quality series, movies, documentaries and animation for the U.S. Hispanic market.”
Indeed, Prime Channels has been a godsend for streaming services such as Starz OTT, HBO Now, Dove Channel and Acorn TV, among others. In return, Amazon extracts a fee and/or revenue-sharing with each platform depending on the business arrangement. The third-party OTT platform has been replicated by Apple TV+ and other media conglomerates.
