Movistar+ to offer WarnerMedia’s TNT Now on-demand service

The Rookie

Telefónica’s Spanish pay TV platform Movistar+ is to offer WarnerMedia’s on-demand service TNT Now to customers.

TNT Now will be available as a dedicated section of the Movistar+ carousel and will offer “the most complete selection of TNT content”, according to the US firm.

At launch, the service will offer 25 different series with 60 seasons and more than 700 episodes with the promise of more as TNT acquires, produces and issues new titles.

Titles available include the newly released Prodigal Son, The Rookie, FBI and Veronica Mars – the latter of which will see new episodes added after they premiere on TNT’s linear channel.

The service will also see the new season of animated cult favourite Rick And Morty, along with DC comics series Swamp Thing, which has been been a hit in other regions as an Amazon Prime Video exclusive.

TNT Now will complement the TNT channel which is broadcast in Spain through Movistar+, Vodafone, Orange TV, Euskatel, R, Telecable, TotalChannel, and Sky.

The announcement follows a tricky week for Movistar, which was fined €1.5m by Spanish regulatory body CNMC. The operator was found to have been overcharging the likes of Orange, Vodafone and Telecable for its premium service El Partidazo.

El Partidazo airs many of Spain’s biggest football matches, and Movistar was found to have reported fewer subscribers than the real figure.
