Telecommunications company Telefónica has made a strategic decision at a regional level in relation to its Movistar Series channel. According to information obtained by TAVI Latam, the channel was dropped from Movistar Pay TV line-ups in Latin America on March 31 and now it can be accessed through Movistar Play, its OTT platform, on an exclusive basis.
Telefónica spokespeople have explained to TAVI Latam that this initiative aims to “digitize all interaction with customers”. They have confirmed that the channel will continue to broadcast original series and exclusive content.
Movistar Series premiered in Latin America in early 2018 with the aim of offering its original series in the region. The number of productions released in its first year was twelve and it exceeded fifteen in 2019.
