China’s Huawei has teamed up with Atresmedia to create the new streaming service Huawei Video, which will be launched in Spain and Italy during the first quarter of 2018.
Atresmedia will be a “key content partner”. The new service will be available on smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. The platform will have a free and a pay version, but prices were not revealed.
According to the companies, this partnership could be extended to other countries and “to explore new joint opportunities for Huawei and Atresmedia in new or existing video projects around the world.” Atresmedia is present in Latin America through its channels Atreseries, Cadena 3 Internacional and ¡Hola! TV.
”Understanding and participating in the transformation of Huawei into a completely customer-oriented company, including its devices and new services, is an opportunity that we have decided to take advantage of, and we wish to advance together as partners. In the short term, we expect to reap new mutual benefits,” said Mercedes Gamero, Atresmedia’s Director of Acquisitions and Sales and Director of Atresmedia Cine.
