Telecine Play closes its platform and transfers content to Globoplay

Telecine, the premium service of the Brazilian operator Globo, announced that it will close its streaming platform, Telecine Play, in the coming weeks and that all the online content of its channels will be transferred to SVOD Globoplay. As explained from the company, the decision to consolidate the offer was made with the aim of improving the user experience and bringing synergy gains to operations.

In this way, the former app’s subscribers will be able to access the on-demand library and the six linear channels of Globoplay, as well as a section specially dedicated to Telecine, for which users will be able to subscribe specifically, without having to purchase the service fully.

“Telecine knows moviegoers like no one else, 25 years of television have made us a benchmark hub in cinema through the curatorship of a team that we christened as ‘the team of moviegoers1, specialists trained at home who will continue to dedicate themselves to our programming, seeking the business and content distribution in a unified way”, Eldes Mattiuzzo, CEO of Telecine, explained about the transition.
