Starz Entertainment’s new premium Spanish-language channel launched Monday on AT&T U-Verse and Verizon FiOS, Starz Entertainment has announced.
The new channel offers movie programming in Spanish 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in an uncut and commercial-free format.
Starz’s executive VP, sales and affiliate marketing, Ed Huguez, said that the channel will be working with its other affiliates to set up more launches of Encore Español in the future.
