Telefónica announced a global partnership to integrate Netflix’s service into Telefónica’s TV and video platforms in in Europe and Latin America.

The aggrement allows Netflix subscribers to log in and easily watch their favorite shows and movies on Telefónica’s pay TV and video platforms. 

The agreement covers a range of initiatives, that vary according to each market, including integrating the Netflix app into Pay TV set-top boxes and providing access to Netflix from the Movistar Play Video OTT service, enabling members to pay their Netflix subscription via their Telefónica bill and adding Netflix to certain mobile video data plans that allow Telefónica customers to stream video without tapping into their standard data allowance.

The first launches in several countries will be announced in the next few weeks and further launches will happen throughout the region in 2018. Once Netflix launches on Telefónica’s platforms, anyone may simply sign-up and Netflix members may log into the Netflix service on Telefónica devices. 

Jose Maria Alvarez Pallete, Executive Chairman, Telefonica
We want to offer our customers the most compelling video offering possible, whether it’s our own content or third party providers. The partnership with Netflix will significantly enhance our existing multichannel video platforms.

Reed Hastings, Co-founder and CEO, Netflix
Over the next several years, our partnership with Telefónica will benefit millions of consumers who will be able to easily access their favorite Netflix shows, documentaries, stand-ups, kids content and movies across a range of Telefonica platforms.
