Online video streaming service Netflix has included more Latin American content in its library through agreements with Colombian broadcaster Caracol Televisión and Argentinean distributor Telefe International.
Netflix had already reached agreements some time ago with important Latin American TV companies such as Mexican broadcasters Televisa and TV Azteca, and also with CBS.
Through these new agreements Netflix will offer TV series and mini-series from Telefe International’s catalogue. On its side through the partnership with Caracol Televisión, Netflix will be able to offer self-produced telenovelas and TV series. This agreement has a multi-year duration and aims to increase the availability of Caracol Televisión’s contents for the whole of the region.
“It is certainly a great partnership that allows the success of our channel’s productions to continue travelling the region and reinforces once again our strategic plan to monetize our content across multiple platforms, which in turn provide a great user experience,” said Lisette Osorio, international senior director at Caracol.
