Pantaya was revealed in September last year by Lionsgate and Hispanic network Univision, although the latter is not mentioned in Lionsgate’s latest announcement.

Hemisphere Media Group joined the venture last November.

Pantaya features content from Lionsgate’s existing venture with Televisa, Pantelion Films, and provides exclusive and first-run access to all of Pantelion’s Spanish-language releases.

It also features films from Lionsgate’s 16,000-title library dubbed in Spanish and content from Hemisphere Media Group’s catalogue. The service’s operations are overseen by Presburger and Pantelion chief operating officer Edward Allen.

Lionsgate claims Pantaya, which costs US$5.99 per month, features the largest, most current and most diverse selection of Spanish-language blockbusters and critically acclaimed films from Latin America and Hollywood. It also features documentaries and concerts.

“This platform is the next logical step in Lionsgate’s track record of serving the Hispanic consumer with high-end premium content through our Pantelion Films venture with Televisa,” said Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer.

“By drawing upon the blockbuster films, vast libraries and world-class programming resources of its partners, Pantaya is positioned to become a compelling value proposition for Spanish-language and bilingual audiences across the country,” added Feltheimer.

The service is available through the web and on iOS, Android and the Roku platform in the US and Puerto Rico, as well as to Prime members on Amazon in the US.
