New York-based TelevisaUnivision is set to launch a Spanish-language subscription streaming service in the U.S., Mexico and Latin America on July 21, priced at $6.99 and $119MX monthly after a free seven-day trial.
ViX+ claims to be first large-scale global streaming service created specifically for the Spanish-speaking world giving subscribers access to more than 10,000 hours of ad-free entertainment programming in its first year, and up to 7,000 hours of live sports.
Consumers in the U.S., Mexico, and the majority of Spanish-speaking countries of Latin America will have access to more than 70 ViX+ Original series and movies in the first year.
Original series available at launch include “María Felix, La Doña,” “La Mujer del Diablo” and “Mi Vecino El Cartel,” which is executive produced by Selena Gomez. ViX+ subscribers will also be able to watch global movie premieres of Mirreyes contra Godinez 2, El Retiro and Enfermo Amor.
“ViX+ will bring premium storytelling that raises the bar for Spanish-language content,” Pierluigi Gazzolo, chief transformation officer at TelevisaUnivision, said in a statement.
Indeed, ViX and ViX+ create the largest Spanish-language streaming service in the world, with more than 50,000 hours of content targeting nearly 600 million Spanish speakers around the globe.
“Spanish-language viewers will finally have a subscription streaming service with content that authentically reflects our culture,” Gazzolo said.
