In addition to broadcasting the matches on premium pay TV networks, FOX and Turner plan to commercialize Argentine soccer through a streaming platform that will be available independently from pay TV services. 

A few short days after nabbing the rights to Argentine soccer, FOX and Turner have started to reveal their plans for the broadcasts that will come in August.
 
As expected, both companies will commercialize a premium bundle through pay TV operators, which will include all networks that are to broadcast the matches. It will cost US$ 19.29. 
 
However, newspaper La Nación reported this Thursday that both companies are also preparing the launch of an independent OTT platform that will be available as a standalone service, aside from the pay TV packages.
 
The price, in this case, will be twice as much as the bundles' and it's expected to be around the US$ 40 mark. 
 
According to La Nación, the hefty price tag is to protect the pay TV ecosystem and avoid a massive “cord-cutting” event. 
 
As an example, Netflix is available in Argentina for around US$ 7 and US$ 12 dollars a month, which will make this new platform, dubbed as "soccer's Netflix", up to six times more expensive.
 
The proposed platform, in turn, will be available in all devices and will allow for live and on-demand viewings. 
 
“We can’t claim that this multiplatform will happen on day 1 of our contract, but it is within the business plan we’re looking to implement,” said an anonymous source to the newspaper. 
 
According to the journal, the OTT platform will be ready by the end of the year or the first few months of the next.
