Fox+ Premium Package Launches in Brazil With ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Homeland’

Global hit series “Homeland,” “The Walking Dead,” “Da Vinci’s Demons,” “Vikings” and “Black Sails” have landed in Brazil via Fox Networks’ newly launched HD premium package Fox+, comprised of Fox1 and Fox Action channels.

Fox’s original Brazilian productions “Um Contra Todos,” “#MeChamaDeBruna – A História de Bruna Surfistinha” and co-production “Condominio Jaqueline” join the lineup of the new exclusive channel package.

“We make at least three original productions or co-productions a year to comply with Brazil’s audiovisual law,” said Fox Networks Group president Carlos Martinez.

While in the rest of Latin America, Fox+ includes feature films, the Brazilian Fox+ package offers only series because of Fox’s partial stake in Telecine Networks Brazil, to which it supplies its feature films.

“We launched Fox+ in Brazil because it leads in the piracy of series in Latin America; people have had no access to these shows in any other way until now,” said Martinez.

Fox+ is also commercial free and offers U.S. day-and-date airings of top shows including “The Walking Dead,” “The Americans,” “Baskets” and “Outcast” in English with Portuguese subtitles. Fox+ is the former premium channel called Moviecity, which Fox rebranded not long after acquiring full ownership of its parent company, LAPTV, in 2013. Among its content providers are Fox, MGM, Paramount and Starz.

Fox1 offers general programming, while Fox Action, as its name implies, provides faster-paced content. Viewers pay an additional $8 to $9 for this package. The Fox Channel currently reaches up to 17 million households in Brazil via satellite or cable, claiming 95% penetration of the country. Multiplatform service Fox Play+ is also available in Brazil.
