MIAMI (AP) – Univision is committed to streaming with PrendeTV, a service with dozens of channels and exclusive on-demand programming from Univision and Televisa productions and partner television stations such as Caracol, Globo, Cisneros, Filmrise and Nelvana.
The service launched on Tuesday has more than 40 channels and 10,000 hours of video on demand, including movies, series, reality shows, children’s programs, soap operas and sports programming. In a few weeks, it would have access to movies from Disney, Lionsgate and MGM, the network said in a statement.
PrendeTV is available for free to users of Amazon Fire TV, Roku, iPhone, Apple TV, Android, Android TV devices and on the internet at www.Prende.tv.
In its letter, Univision described the launch of PrendeTV as a milestone in the transformation of the company into a new phase of growth.
Despite the growing number of streaming services, the company believes that there are not enough services for the Hispanic audience.
Hispanics represent 19% of the US population. Of that group, 74% speak mostly Spanish and 49% are bilingual who want more content in Spanish, according to figures provided by Univision.
