Mexico’s Totalplay is the first to offer the award-winning, global media service from the founder of Discovery Channel in the region.
Starting this month, curious minds in Latin America will have access to the breadth and depth of factual entertainment in one destination with the launch of documentary linear channel and on-demand service CuriosityStream on Totalplay, a Grupo Salinas company and a leader in the telecommunications market in Mexico.
The service will be available to Totalplay’s subscribers beginning today.
The award-winning streaming service launched by John Hendricks, the visionary founder of Discovery Channel, offers viewing options across a full category of factual entertainment that includes science, history, technology, nature, society and lifestyle.
CuriosityStream boasts a growing library of thousands of titles including original films and series not available anywhere else, like the Emmy Award-winning docuseries Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places and the upcoming El Poder del Sonido (The Power of Sound), a documentary which CuriosityStream produces with Mexico’s M31 Medios.
The 4K production explores the incredible hearing abilities found in some species of the animal kingdom, and it is filmed entirely in Mexico.
“CuriosityStream’s launch today in Mexico with Totalplay marks a significant milestone as we share our comprehensive and entertaining non-fiction series and documentaries with the important Latin American audience,” said Clint Stinchcomb, President and CEO of CuriosityStream.
“We are excited to collaborate with Totalplay as our inaugural distribution partner in Mexico. We look forward to continued success in Mexico and throughout Latin America.”
“At Totalplay we are continuously innovating to be the best entertainment option in the country; we are very happy to add CuriosityStream to our value offering, for this will allow our customers to enjoy even more and better content of the highest quality”, said Hugo Adrián Hernández, Content Acquisition & Programming Director for Totalplay.
Upcoming programming on CuriosityStream in Latin America will include: Breakthrough, Speed, Ancient Earth, History of Food, Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places, Debugged and Classic Cars
The agreement to launch CuriosityStream was brokered by content distribution firm Simma Media.
With the arrival of CuriosityStream on its platform, Totalplay solidifies its position as a leading company in the Mexican market and reaffirms its commitment to being at the forefront of supplying quality and value to all its customers.
CuriosityStream is available worldwide to watch on television sets, desktop computers, mobile and tablets. CuriosityStream can be found in Mexico on Totalplay.
