Telemundo Internacional has inked a highly significant distribution deal for the whole of the Latin American region with leading US over the top (OTT) video supplier Netflix.

The agreement includes more than 1.200 hours of Telemundo's original productions for a year, including popular titles like 'La reina del Sur' which is ready for its launch on Netflix Latin America through the subscription VOD (SVOD) platform for all the Internet connected devices.

Through this agreement Telemundo Internacional will be able to analyse viewer demand year after a year so allowing them to be more selective on watching content while at the same time satisfying the audiences' demand.

"We are proud to work with Netflix and we will support its strategy to extend its network internationally. On our side we will offer them our best content library" said Daniel Capriles, International Digital Media's VP at Telemundo Internacional.
"The growth of the Netflix's SVOD platform is within our list of priorities as part of our international growth on all of our new media and emerging platforms" he added.
