The company oversees the global rollout of four services, Antena 3, Atreseries, Atrescine, and ¡HOLA! TV, active across entertainment, scripted series, blockbuster movies and lifestyle/royalty news. Between them they have added 7.6m subs y-o-y.

Mar Martínez-Raposo, general director of Atresmedia Internacional, said: “Achieving such significant growth, despite complicated market conditions, demonstrates the strength of our broadcasts and is an indisputable sign of the high demand for linear channels, as well as the trust that PayTV operators place in us. They are redoubling their commitment to Atresmedia Internacional to help them adapt to the challenges and consumer habits in a context of extremely high competition.”

Among this year’s agreements, which enabled Atresmedia Internacional to achieve double-digit growth, the company singled out its presence on YouTube TV in the US. Other carriage deals have seen its channels expand into Mexico and Colombia. Key titles have included Joaquín, el novato, La Voz España, La Valla and Atrapa a un ladrón, as well as ¡HOLA! TV’s coverage of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.
