Telemundo Provides Content to Support Netflix’s Latin American Expansion


Netflix announced in July that it was going to expand to 43 Latin American and Caribbean countries by year’s end. Now it is known where a good chunk of content for that marketplace is coming from.

Telemundo International recently announced a program-licensing deal with Netflix, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Telemundo, owned by NBC Universal, will be providing 1,200 hours of content to Netflix annually that Latin American subscribers can get via streaming, the Reporter notes.

Netflix is already getting 3,000 hours of content from Televisa as well as 1,500 hours from Azteca.

In April, Netflix announced it had 23.6 million subscribers. It looks to increase that number substantially once it begins streaming content in Latin America.
