"As we see more and more need for Spanish-language programming, it is important for us to bolster our FiOS TV offering with quality channels like Cine Nostalgia that appeal to a diverse market base," said Terry Denson, vice president of content strategy and acquisition for Verizon.  "Our Spanish-language channel lineup is becoming more differentiated and robust, meeting the needs of Hispanic consumers across the country."

Cine Nostalgia is a 24-hour-a-day black-and-white movie channel with the best movies made in Mexico, and a strong library from the 30s to the 60s which represents the "Golden Era" of Mexican film making.

"This is a wonderful moment for Cine Nostalgia and for the Spanish-language movie viewers throughout the country. Cine Nostalgia and Cine Estelar offer more than 3,000 exclusive titles, the largest library of Mexican movies in the world, not available in any other TV network. Our library keeps growing with high-quality uncut films as they were originally created," said Carlos Vasallo, President and CEO of Cine Nostalgia, Cine Estelar and other entertainment venues. "Verizon is an attractive platform for our channels, with a robust brand and FiOS TV is an increasingly popular choice for Hispanic consumers looking for value, technology and the benefits of the triple bundle." The fastest-growing Hispanic population, already familiar with Vasallo's comprehensive Mexican film library, distributed to Latin America through other networks, now has direct access in the U.S. thanks to partnerships with multichannel operators Verizon and DIRECTV and distribution continues growing.
