Bulwarked by its still massive grip on free-to-air primetime, no large company in Latin America has embraced the SVOD revolution with as much energy as Brazil’s Globo. In January, Globo merged all operations — TV Globo, Globosat, Globoplay — into one company simply called Globo, repositioning as a direct-to-consumer giant offering integrated ad sales.

SVOD audiences grew 567% in viewership between March and June. Globo continues to turn out top-notch standard-­format series, such as the fourth season of medical drama “Under Pressure.”
