Telemundo puts full-length programs online


In what’s being called a first for Spanish-language television, Telemundo announced that all of its primetime shows and novelas are being made available online, in full length, on Yahoo! Telemundo. NBC Universal-owned Telemundo says all of its primetime shows and novelas will be available online the morning after the original air date before 9 am ET.

"As part of our 360 multi-platform strategy, we are proud to be the first Spanish-language network to provide our viewers with full-length original programming online on Yahoo! Telemundo. Never before has our audience had this level of access to our hit shows and novelas and we are thrilled to be able to deliver it to them whenever they want it," said Peter Blacker, Senior Vice President Digital Media, Telemundo.

The new video offering includes Telemundo’s full-length novelas as well as never before seen footage of its original productions and stars. Online viewers will also be able to take advantage of Yahoo! Telemundo Grupos (Groups) where they can share their comments and opinions with other novela fans and Yahoo! Telemundo Respuestas (Answers) where they can ask questions related to the show, actors, story line and more.
