US broadcaster Fox launched in Brazil two of its premium channels, Fox1 and Fox Action. According to what NexTV News could find out, for the time being the benefit is offered to customers of TV operators Sumicity and Multiplay as a TV Everywhere service through the Fox Play platform (www.foxplay.com) as well as to other Pay-TV companies only as an OTT.
The channels, part of the premium catalog called Fox +, will be added to the grid of the above mentioned operators but not to those which were not disclosed. Clients must contact the companies to ask for access to Fox Play, which will have an additional cost chosen by each firm.
“We are happy and excited to launch Fox+ in Brazil. Offering a multifaceted and unique service, which includes the different ways of consuming content and entertainment and which seeks to provide viewers new experiences in an innovative way, is very rewarding”, said the SVP and General Manager of Fox Networks Group Brazil, Gustavo Leme.
As anticipated by NexTV News Latam, Fox announced this launch in late December 2015. Through Fox+, premieres series can be watched simultaneously with the United States as well as films in their original language with no commercial breaks.
