The launch on Apple devices follows deals with Telefónica for Android and Blackberry smartphones. Bruce Tuchman, president of AMC/Sundance Channel Global, said, “Sundance Channel’s launch on iPhone and iPad devices on Movistar Imagenio in Spain is a key development in the growth of our multi-platform distribution strategy internationally. Consumer and distributor demand for TV Everywhere access continues to grow worldwide, and we are uniquely positioned to offer broad rights for our high quality, globally renowned entertainment.”
