WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Focused on connecting its Hispanic consumers to the content they absolutely love, Philadelphia-based FlixFling streaming video service, is poised to add Spanish-language programming to its premium subscription channel catalog in partnership with Olympusat, Inc., one of the largest independent media companies specializing in the ownership, distribution, production and technical services of Spanish and English language networks.
It is the first time that such a robust, Spanish-language premium video collection is available On Demand in FlixFling's growing channel line-up. Users of the subscription service will enjoy a variety and large volume of compelling content in six newly created channels designed by Olympusat that feature movies, telenovelas, series, documentaries, anime, live action, faith-based and children's programming.
"We are thrilled to partner with FlixFling as we continue to greatly expand our digital footprint in the U.S. and Latin America," stated Tom Mohler, CEO of Olympusat. "We are proud to offer a huge influx of top-rated new releases to their customers while making our brands available to a wider audience, and giving them the content they want."
FlixFling CEO, Thomas Ashley said, "We are very excited to further diversify the content we offer to our customers and appeal to the Spanish speaking market. Olympusat has an impressive content line-up we are sure will appeal to a broad audience."
FlixFling is a unique hybrid service offering movies and television, to rent or buy On Demand, as well as multiple monthly subscription channel offerings. Subscription packages for each of Olympusat's uniquely curated channels will be available for monthly prices ranging from $3.99 to $4.99 per channel. The monthly fee offers unlimited access to hundreds of titles available instantly.
Today, the United States is the world's second largest Spanish speaking country after Mexico. With expansive buying power and unique consumption habits, people of Hispanic origin –55 million inhabitants, according to the U.S. Census Bureau– represent the nation's largest ethnic or racial minority. Although they are becoming increasingly proficient in English, they are also more likely to view television in Spanish. Research from Nielsen shows that the average Spanish-dominant home is watching 78% of television in Spanish. That makes it a significant audience for a consumer-oriented growing company like FlixFling.
Olympusat has established itself as a leader in the Hispanic television and media space through its 100+ SD and HD Spanish and English language television networks for the entire family. This Video On Demand content deal with FlixFling will enable consumers to subscribe to the following channels:
Cine Real – A contemporary movie channel offering an unrivaled library of original Spanish-language titles from Latin America and Spain, including popular genres such as action, drama, comedies and romance.
Damas – A Spanish-language entertainment channel featuring highly rated lifestyle programming for Hispanic women and acclaimed telenovelas, from the classics, to the latest productions in all of Latin America.
Pio Pio – Developed entirely for preschoolers, this channel delivers some of the best educational, values-oriented and entertaining Spanish-language content that will stimulate kids' creativity and imagination.
Parables – A faith-based English-language entertainment channel featuring movies, series, documentaries, children's programming and original productions that inspire one story at a time.
Parables en Español – Brings quality faith-based entertainment television to Hispanic families looking for spirit-enriching programming – a combination of inspirational movies, series, documentaries and original productions.
TOKU – An English-dubbed channel delivering the most popular and sough after live-action fiction titles, anime, and cult classics from Japan, China, South Korea and Thailand.
