Everything You Need to Know About Vix+: Premium Spanish-Language Streaming Service From TelevisaUnivision

What Other Spanish Streaming Services Are There?
The launch of ViX+ comes as services have begun to realize the growing value of Spanish-language programming in the streaming space. A recent study from Horowitz Research found that 70% of Latinx viewers in the U.S. watch Spanish-language programming and that two-thrids do so via international content.
In addition to TelevisaUnivision launching both ViX and ViX+, in June Roku announced plans to bring Espacio Latino to its ad-supported Roku Channel, increasing its Spanish-language content. Live TV streaming service YouTube TV has also recently added to its multilingual programming by adding two Spanish-language plans with add-on English/Spanish and Spanish-only subscriptions.
ViX+ is now called ViX Premium. It is a Spanish-language streaming service with more than 40,000 hours of content, featuring originals and library content from Univision and Televisa’s pool of programming. It will also have as much as 7,000 hours of live sports, including Liga MX and UEFA Champion’s League soccer.
