Univision Communications Inc. (UCI) and Netflix have teamed up to bring the first season of Golden Globe nominated Netflix original series “Narcos” to broadcast television on the Univision Network. UniMás will also air Spanish-language Netflix original series “Club de Cuervos.” Both Netflix series will air on these networks leading up to the exclusive global debut of their second seasons on Netflix.
“No other media company understands Hispanic American audiences like Univision and this promotional partnership speaks to our ability to reach and engage our growth consumer with unmatched scale and depth,” said Randy Falco, president and CEO, Univision Communications Inc. “We are pleased to work with Netflix and leverage Univision’s unique reach and deep connection with our audience to introduce millions of our viewers to their ground-breaking series.”
“’Narcos’ is a huge global success on Netflix and sampling the series to every single Spanish-speaking living room in the U.S. will give additional viewers the opportunity to fall in love with its unique storytelling. Promoting these original shows on Univision is a great way to further reach Hispanic audiences and help them discover Netflix,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer.
Seasons two of “Narcos” and “Club de Cuervos” will be available exclusively on Netflix later this year, along with the first seasons.
