Verizon has added another Spanish-language offering to its FiOS TV lineup. Cine Estelar will bring a broad range of films to the increasingly diverse Mexican and Hispanic population in the United States.
The 24-hour movie channel offers box-office hits from the Mexican film industry, running 12 films per year from the 60s to date, with 260 premieres a year, 12 different titles every day and 5 new releases each week. Cine Estelar and Cine Nostalgia offer more than 3,000 exclusive titles, the largest library of Mexican movies in the world.
"At Verizon FiOS, our goal is to lead the way in providing the authentic, high-quality programming that our customers want," said Michelle Webb, director of content strategy and acquisition for Verizon, in a statement. "New additions to the FiOS TV channel lineup like Cine Estelar help to deliver even more value to our Spanish-language packages, providing consumers with one of the most robust offerings in the market today."
The move enhances Verizon's already robust Spanish-language offering, which can be bought in bundles across 175 different channels. Cine Estelar (and its sister network, Cine Nostalgia, which was added last November) can be founc in the La Conexion package, in all FiOS TV markets.
