Movistar Play offers 39 live channels in Colombia

Movistar announced that it is offering a new package with 39 live channels through the Movistar Play app. The service costs Co$ 29,900 (USD 10.3) per months for clients, and Co$ 35,900 (USD 12.4) for non-clients.
The package includes ESPN, Fox Sports, TNT, Fox, Disney, Cartoon Network, Cablenoticias, El Tiempo, CNN and the exclusive Movistar Series channel, among others.
In addition, the application gives access to 3,700 series and films, 500 movie premieres, telenovelas-realities of RCN and Caracol and the exclusive content of Movistar Series. The app is available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, PCs or Smart TVs of Samsung and LG.
In this way, the company moves forward with linear pay TV via OTT through Movistar Play, a service that is also available in other markets where Telefónica operates. “The consumption of entertainment content is changing around the world, now people prefer to subscribe to online services rather than having traditional television,” said in a statement Fabián Hernández, CEO of Telefónica Colombia.
Katiuska Veliz, Marketing Manager of TV and Video at Telefónica, will talk about this new initiative at NexTV Series Colombia, the conference organized by Dataxis, to be held on June 7 at the Convention Center of the Tequendama hotel in Bogotá.
Last week, Telefónica announced an agreement with Netflix to integrate the offer of the streaming giant into Telefónica’s TV and video platforms.
