Chile’s CNTV launches free streaming service with local content


Chile’s National Television Council (CNTV) has launched a free access streaming platform with more than 120 national productions, which were previously broadcast on free-to-air TV and were financed by the entity.
Contents are available only in Chile, through the CNTV website. The catalog includes series, films, children’s shows and documentaries, which since 1992 were funded by the Council, according to Emol.
Some of the titles are “Los 80”, “El Reemplazante”, “Violeta”, “31 Minutos” and “Los Archivos del Cardinal”, among others. It is expected that this year the number of titles available will grow to 140.
“We want to make available to the citizens a Chilean audiovisual heritage with quality content that reflects our identity and our history as a country,” said Catalina Parot, president of CNTV.
In Chile, another free access platform with national audiovisual content is OndaMedia, which was launched in mid-2017 by the National Council of Culture and the Arts (CNCA), the state body responsible for implementing public policies for cultural development.
