US-based movie streaming service provider Netflix is reportedly close to announcing it has secured programming agreements with major Latin production groups ahead of a launch of its streaming and rental service in the region.
The company is expected to close deals for telenovelas and other region-specific content from Mexicos largest broadcasters, Televisa and TV Azteca.â¨
Netflix said last month that it will ramp up its international rollout, having successfully launched in Canada last year, but has yet to confirm the expected Latin America launch.â¨
