Streaming platform WhereverTV Latino will launch in Latin America “between mid-October and early November this year”, said to NexTV News Latam Jack Feldman, General Director for Latin America.
WhereverTV Latino is the new version for the region of the platform founded in 2007, called WhereverTV. It is an OTT subscription TV service providing consumers with live-streaming, genre-specific, and in-language viewing choices from around the world.
To serve the Latin American market WhereverTV Latino has opened offices in Mexico. According to Feldman, the company expects to reach approximately 25,000 subscribers of niche channels and around 50,000 of basic channels in the first year of operation in the region.
“So far we have closed distribution agreements with 70 channels and soon we will close deals with other 30”, Felmand said. The goal is to launch the platform with an offer of 100 channels.
Currently, the marketing department is working on the package prices, which according to Feldman “will be very competitive.”
In the site Wherever TV, for example, the package called “Spanish TV” includes the channels RT in Spanish, RCN Novelas, CB Noticias 24, Telefórmula, Superene and Bolivia TV for a monthly subscription of USD 17.99.
Jack Feldman will participate as a speaker in the next edition of NexTV Series Mexico & Central America 2016, to be held October 4 and 5 in Mexico City.
