América Móvil's Claro is to start offering its video-on-demand (VOD) streaming platform in Peru. Clarovideo will be available to mobile subscribers, so content can be watched anywhere and on any screen.

During the initial launch phase, the service will only be available to Claro telecom subscribers, although the platform is expected to be available to everyone at a later date. The service offers a wide VOD catalogue with movies, series, concerts and cartoons, which can be watched on smart TVs and Android and iOS devices.

"We are proud of bringing this innovative service to Peru," said Vanessa Solís, services manager at Peru's Claro. "Our mobile clients will have unlimited access to the best Spanish content on demand."

Claro's customers can subscribe to the streaming platform online. Depending on their current mobile plan, subscribers will be able to pay for it on a pre-paid basis or with their monthly bill. The service will be free during the first month.

Claro is taking its streaming platform to a growing number of Latin American countries; it's currently available in Mexico, Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile and the Dominican Republic.
