RTVE to launch new OTT in Americas in 2020

At the end of 2018, Radio Television Española (RTVE) had announced the launch of its ‘RTVE Play’ OTT in Latin America, Canada and the US, scheduled for this year, but the platform’s premiere was delayed for reasons that were not reported. But, as published by several media in Spain, Maria Jesus Perez Gomez, International Sales Director at RTVE, confirmed that the OTT will be launched next year.

Perez Gomez statements took place during the ‘RTVE Responde’ program, broadcast on Television Española (TVE), in which the broadcaster answers questions made by its audience. That time, when answering a spectator’s doubt about how to watch TVE series in the US, Perez Gomez said that ‘from next year we will launch an SVOD platform’ in the Americas.

According to what RTVE reported in an official statement last year, the company anticipated that the platform will allow to access premium RTVE content through rtveplay.com or mobile devices, through an app that will be available for iOS and Android.
