“Today marks a new dawn in Spanish-language streaming with the launch of ViX, adding another giant step in the transformation of the new TelevisaUnivision: Hundreds of millions of Spanish speakers in the U.S. and most countries in Latin America will have a dedicated streaming platform that’s made for Spanish speakers and made by Spanish speakers,” says Pierluigi Gazzolo, president and Chief Transformation Officer of TelevisaUnivision. “We are so proud to be able to offer this amazing content with a broadcast-like experience across all genres, in the form of linear channels as well as on-demand. All advertising-supported, and importantly... for free.”

“The ad-supported tier of ViX is the ideal way for viewers to first experience our brand, our content, and our vision. This incredible collection of live news, sports, and entertainment programming for the whole family, offered in an AVOD free service, will make it the indispensable streaming product for Spanish speakers in the U.S. and Latin America,” said Rafael Urbina, EVP, and GM of ViX. “Our linear programming includes exclusive channels dedicated to original content created for ViX. Importantly, most of our content was produced in Spanish, not just translated into it, and more than 50% of the ViX offering is exclusive to our service. Also, we couldn’t be more excited about ViX being the digital destination of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 in Mexico, starting on April 1st with the draw.”
