The seven-channel pack is marketed as the most varied offer of Spanish-language television content marketed outside of Spain, with channels specialising in the country’s cuisine, cinema, music, current events, series and entertainment.

For EspañaTV, AMCNISE offers thematic channels Canal Cocina, specialising in Spanish cuisine; Canal Decasa, with original productions covering home décor, health and beauty; Sol Música, the only music channel 100% produced in Spain; and Somos, with a selection of classic movies from Spain. Atresmedia brings to the bouquet Antena 3 Internacional, claimed to be one of Spain’s benchmark news and entertainment channels; Atreseries, with Atresmedia-produced original series; and Atrescine, a channel that premieres recent Spanish films.

The bouquet is available to pay-TV operators across Europe and the French rollout follows EspañaTV’s arrival on MEO, one of Portugal’s biggest subscription television platforms. The channels are also widely available across pay-TV operators in Spain. The partners see EspañaTV as meeting the growing demand for Spanish-language content across European countries in a market which they say comprises more than 23 million Spanish-speakers.

“These new launches build on AMCNISE’s presence in the French pay-TV market and highlight the growing demand from operators for our high-quality, distinctive content and brands as we continue to expand our footprint internationally,” commented AMCNISE executive vice president and managing director Manuel Balsera. “We are looking forward to building on our partnership with Atresmedia and operators across the region to increase the reach of this outstanding channel bouquet.”

Atresmedia Internacional general manager Mar Martínez-Raposo added: “With this launch we expand our presence in France, where Atresmedia Internacional has been present since 2010 and where the greatest number of Spanish residents live. They are precisely the target audience whom we would like to attract to EspañaTV as it offers an interesting and diverse package of television channels.”
