We’re excited to partner with VTR, Chile’s biggest pay-TV distributor, and look forward to delivering our unique blend of high quality, globally renowned film and TV entertainment. We have ambitious growth plans for Sundance Channel, and further expansion across all of Latin America is a key priority for us this year.”
