Movistar Chile starts partnership with Netflix

Movistar Chile announced that its fixed and mobile customers can now subscribe and pay Netflix from their bill, becoming the first telco in the country and the first operation of Telefónica in Latin America to offer this benefit.
In a press release, the company said Movistar customers who are not users of Netflix can subscribe through Movistar Play. Current subscribers can also use this benefit by following the instructions provided by that platform.
The partnership between Telefónica and Netflix was announced in May and includes the integration of the OTT service into Telefónica’s TV and video platforms in Eurpope and Latin America.
“The pay TV business in Chile continues to grow, and our current focus is to deliver the best content to our customers. Our vision is to change paradigms, so that the content industry unites and collaborates. Today with Netflix we are complementary companies, and we share the common desire to offer the best to customers,” said Hernán Cameo, CMO of Movistar Chile.
Movistar has more than three million customers in Chile of its mobile and fixed services (broadband, telephony and pay TV).
