EspañaTV Launches in France


AMC Networks International Southern Europe (AMCNISE) and Atresmedia Internacional’s EspañaTV package has rolled out in France.

The exclusive Spanish-language channel bouquet is now available in France on the IPTV platforms SFR and Free. The package features channels specialized in Spain’s cuisine, cinema, music, current events, series and entertainment, including Canal Cocina, Canal Decasa, Sol Música and Somos, which has a catalog of classic movies from Spain. Antena 3 Internacional, one of Spain’s benchmark breaking news and entertainment channels; Atreseries, with original series produced by Atresmedia; and Atrescine, a channel that premieres recent Spanish films, are also included.

EspañaTV is available to pay-TV operators across Europe, and recently launched on MEO in Portugal. The channels are also widely available across pay-TV operators in Spain.

Manuel Balsera, executive VP and managing director of AMCNISE, said: “These new launches build on AMCNISE’s presence in the French pay-TV market and highlight the growing demand from operators for our high-quality, distinctive content and brands as we continue to expand our footprint internationally. EspañaTV is now seen on several pay-TV platforms across Europe, and we are looking forward to building on our partnership with Atresmedia and operators across the region to increase the reach of this outstanding channel bouquet.”

Mar Martínez-Raposo, general manager of Atresmedia Internacional, said: “With this launch, we expand our presence in France, where Atresmedia Internacional has been present since 2010 and where the greatest number of Spanish residents live. They are precisely the target audience whom we would like to attract to EspañaTV as it offers an interesting and diverse package of television channels.”
