The service features a selection of Spanish-language blockbusters and films from Latin America and Hollywood, the majority appearing exclusively on the Pantaya platform, as well as documentaries, concerts and other original premium content, and is available for $5.99 a month.
“We’re proud to launch a Spanish-language streaming movie service distinguished by its breadth, quality and diversity,” said Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer.
“This platform is the next logical step in Lionsgate’s track record of serving the Hispanic consumer with high-end premium content through our Pantelion Films venture with Televisa. By drawing upon the blockbuster films, vast libraries and world-class programming resources of its partners, Pantaya is positioned to become a compelling value proposition for Spanish-language and bilingual audiences across the country.”
“We’re thrilled to be partnered with Lionsgate in the launch of the premier Spanish-language OTT platform that delivers first-run and bold content,” said Hemisphere CEO Alan Sokol. “Pantaya is user-friendly, accessible and will provide Hispanic movie lovers in the US an entirely new way to watch movies and connect with their cultures.”
“Pantaya will be the one-stop-shop for fans of Spanish-language films to find the best, biggest and newest titles from the Spanish-speaking world unavailable on other platforms,” said Pantelion Films and Pantaya CEO Paul Presburger.
“With our focus on exclusive premium content, our knowledge of the Hispanic consumer, and the breadth of our offering, we are positioned to deliver an OTT service to Spanish-language and bilingual consumers that is second to none.”
The service’s operations will be overseen by Presburger and Pantelion CEO Edward Allen.
