Verizon FiOS adding Spanish movie channel


The Spanish-language classic movie channel Cine Nostalgia is being added to Verizon’s FiOS TV lineup. The black and white movies from the “Golden Era” of Mexican film making will be available in all FiOS markets by November 17th and FiOS will also add sister channel Cine Estelar beginning 2012.

“As we see more and more need for Spanish-language programming, it is important for us to bolster our FiOS TV offering with quality channels like Cine Nostalgia that appeal to a diverse market base,” said Terry Denson (pictured), vice president of content strategy and acquisition for Verizon.  “Our Spanish-language channel lineup is becoming more differentiated and robust, meeting the needs of Hispanic consumers across the country.”

Cine Nostalgia is a 24-hour-a-day black-and-white movie channel with the best movies made in Mexico, and a strong library from the 1930s to the ’60s.

“This is a wonderful moment for Cine Nostalgia and for the Spanish-language movie viewers throughout the country. Cine Nostalgia and Cine Estelar offer more than 3,000 exclusive titles, the largest library of Mexican movies in the world, not available in any other TV network. Our library keeps growing with high-quality uncut films as they were originally created,” said Carlos Vasallo, President and CEO of Cine Nostalgia, Cine Estelar and other entertainment venues.
