Operator Boosts Hispanic VOD and Online Video Content Available to Subscribers
In a bid to win more Hispanic subscribers, Comcast has tripled the amount of Spanish-language video on demand in recent months and now offers more than 500 movies and shows online for Latino audiences.
The Philadelphia-based operator's expanded bouquet of Spanish-language content is available to subscribers to its Hispanic programming tiers, which offer more than 50 networks. Comcast's standalone MultiLatino packages start at $16.95 per month and may be added to any video subscription plan.
