May 9, 2023

Lionsgate+, the international streaming service from Starz, will now become available through Mercado Livre, an eCommerce platform across Latin America, in key markets in the region through an agreement spanning Brazil, Mexico, Chile and Colombia. Brazil is the initial launch market, with other territories rolling out in the coming months.

As part of the agreement, customers will be able to subscribe via Mercado Livre to Lionsgate+’s library of exclusive content that includes dark comedy Nacho, along with period dramas The Great (pictured) and The Serpent Queen as well as true crime drama The Act. Lionsgate+ is also home to Spanish language Original series like Señorita 89 in Latin America, plus an extensive collection of blockbuster fan-favourite movies added to the platform every month.

“Mercado Livre has an impressive reach across Latin America and is an ideal partner for us as we continue to deepen our presence in the region,” said Darren Nielson, EVP, International Networks for Starz. “With a slate of successful returning series like The Great and Gangs of London, combined with growing local language originals, we look forward to sharing our service with Mercado Livre users and welcoming them to Lionsgate+.”

“The goal of Mercado Livre is to offer to our members the best of both worlds: the combination of benefits from the unbeatable ecosystem of Mercado Livre together with the best premium video content from the leading streaming platforms. With Lionsgate+ as a partner we add to our offer some of the most successful movies and series in the world,” added Luiz Felipe Barros, VP of Loyalty and Entertainment at Mercado Livre.
