Totalplay from Mexico included the CBeebies app to its STBs


Telecommunications company Totalplay (Salinas Group) from Mexico announced through a press release that it included into their set-top boxes (STB) the access to the Video On Demand (VOD) app of children channel CBeebies, from British BBC, for a monthly cost of USD 1.6.


“Exclusive and high-quality content are a central part of our offer at Totalplay. We are very proud to incorporate the BBC through its CBeebies app, designed for children to develop skills in a safe and fun environment”, stated Totalplay Television and Content Director, Hugo Adrian Hernandez.


Totalplay offers since May 2011 Pay-TV through IPTV bundled with broadband services and the option to access triple play by adding fixed telephony. Today, the operator is available in 20 cities throughout Mexico, in addition to their metropolitan areas.


“The integration of CBeebies’ app to Totalplay platform will enable the operator’s customers to subscribe through a single interface. It also allows expanding the presence of CBeebies beyond the linear television signal, giving the audience their favorite TV shows at their own convenience on their TV screens”, said BBC Worldwide Latin America and US Hispanic EVP and Managing Director, Anna Gordon.
