FlixLatino, the US Hispanic subscription video on-demand service from Somos Next, announced the launch of the FlixLatino app on Comcast’s Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex entertainment platforms. The launch significantly expands FlixLatino’s distribution in the United States, now reaching millions of potential subscribers with its Spanish-language offering of movies, series, documentaries, children’s programming and other genres.
FlixLatino was launched in 2015 and has grown continuously since, more than doubling its subscriber base in 2020. The service has an extensive offering of Spanish-language contemporary films (all theatrical releases), series, documentaries, animation and other genres, all in HD. This content library, which is continuously expanded and updated, will be available to X1 and Flex customers for $2.99 per month, conveniently organized and accessible simply by saying “FlixLatino” into the bilingual Xfinity X1 Voice Remote.
FlixLatino offers more than 1000 hours of continuously updated programming, with award-winning movies and stars that have catapulted the Spanish film industry’s overall visibility and crossover into Hollywood. Curated by its own content acquisition staff, the service monitors current and upcoming productions, enabling its subscribers to enjoy the latest hits from all Spanish-speaking countries. FlixLatino offers regular premieres and curates content based on subscribers’ preferences and recommendations.
“We are extremely satisfied with the launch of FlixLatino on the Xfinity X1 and Flex. We could not be happier, as we strengthen our relationship with such an important partner. We believe that FlixLatino will be a key part of the efforts to provide Latinos, an important segment of the US audience, with the best entertainment in their own language and in the variety of platforms that the market demands today. We make an effort to find and aggregate the best content, and nothing is more satisfying than facilitating its discovery and enjoyment for our audiences,” stated Luis Guillermo Villanueva, COO of Somos Next.
Xfinity delivers all the best entertainment to customers via its X1 and Flex devices and through its Xfinity Internet service.
