Grupo Salinas-owned Totalplay has plans to add another over-the-top (OTT) platform to its stable.

Totalplay has similar agreements with Netflix, FOX, Sony and HBO, with the last two ready to launch their platforms in September.

According to Eduardo Kuri, CEO at Totalplay, in an interview with El Financiero, “We are delivering access to a third company’s content. We are ready to add blim or any other platform.”

Tapping the capacity and speed of its fibre-to-the-home network, Totalplay intends to deliver the most-complete entertainment offer in Mexico, including its own video-on-demand (VOD) catalogue with over 4,000 titles, and a streaming videogames platform.

“We believe we have a better position than our competitors. Not only because of our content offer, but for the fibre and the homogeneous coverage,” Kuri said.

Only available in some areas of Mexico, Totalplay reaches over six million homes with its fibre network, through which it delivers broadband and IPTV, including VOD, interactive TV features and access to OTT providers.
