They are all some of the best in the business and we are delighted to officially partner with them to bring even compelling projects to Pantaya. These companies are leaders and innovators in the world of Spanish-language content, and I look forward to sharing all of the exciting films that are to come with Pantaya’s loyal subscribers,” stated Paul Presburger, CEO of Pantaya and Pantelion.
