In early February, Amazon Inc.’s streaming platform, MGM+, experienced a price increase in the United States. The monthly plan rose from USD $5.99 to USD $6.99, while the annual plan increased from USD $49.99 to USD $58.99, representing an approximately 17% increase. This price adjustment is significant as it hadn’t occurred since Epix rebranded to MGM+ in January 2023. MGM+ offers a 7-day free trial for new users interested in exploring its content, including titles like “Top Gun: Maverick,” “No Time to Die,” “Creed 3,” and “House of Gucci.”

It’s essential to note that MGM+ is not only available independently but also offers its content through popular platforms like Amazon Prime Video, The Roku Channel, DirecTV Stream, Sling TV, YouTube TV, and Fubo TV, providing users with various options to access its exclusive content.

Viaplay exits the US

On February 29, Viaplay bid farewell to the US. Despite being launched in the country just a year ago, in February 2023, the Nordic content platform has decided to cease its direct operations in this region. However, followers of the Viaplay catalog can still enjoy its content through other commercial partners, including well-known platforms like Xumo, Xfinity, and The Roku Channel.

Plex in the US

Although Plex has a global presence with the Advertising VOD model, the platform has implemented a new Transactional business model solely in the US.

It may expand to other countries in the future, providing users with greater flexibility and a more personalized experience on the platform.

This tariff modification affects nations such as Albania, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Finland, Georgia, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, North Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Montenegro, and Serbia. This increase covers various regions, reflecting a widespread update in the subscription costs of Amazon Prime Video in these areas.

On February 6, it marked the end of an era for British entertainment lovers in Latin America, as the popular streaming platform AcornTV, known for its extensive catalog of British classics and favorites, ceased to be available in the region. Since 2018, AcornTV had been the go-to destination for viewers avid for titles like “Doc Martin,” “A Place to Call Home,” “Murdoch Mysteries,” “The Brokenwood Mysteries,” “Midsomer Murders,” and “Foyle’s War,” among others. Its departure leaves a gap in the quality British content offering in Latin America.

Additionally, it’s crucial to mention that AcornTV also discontinued its service in Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and the Netherlands, meaning viewers in these regions also experienced the loss of access to this British content.

Netflix, Apple TV+, and Paramount+ increases their prices in Chile

In the Chilean context, Netflix remains one of the most valuable platforms, only surpassed by Star+, The Walt Disney Company’s platform. Shortly after, there was also an increase in the monthly subscription for Apple TV+, rising from CLP $3,500 to CLP $4,990, a 42% increase since its last modification in 2020.

In the last weeks of February, a price increase was detected on the Paramount+ platform in Chile.

How much does it cost to subscribe to Universal+ through Amazon Prime Video in LATAM?

Starting February 15, Amazon Prime users in Chile, Colombia, and Mexico can access the premium service Universal+ through the additional channels of Prime Video. This addition is due to the collaboration between Amazon Inc. and NBC Universal International Networks. It’s worth mentioning that these plans compete with the DGO platform, which offers access to Universal+ through an additional plan at the same subscription price. Universal+ offers a wide selection of American series and movies, including titles like “Ted” and “Poker Face.” This partnership strengthens the streaming entertainment offering in Latin America, providing users with more options to enjoy their favorite content.


What are the subscription prices for Universal+?

  • In Colombia: COP $24,900
  • In Chile: CLP $7,490
  • In Mexico: MXN $149

This premium service not only offers on-demand content but also five linear channels: Universal Premiere, Universal Cinema, Universal Reality, Universal Crime, and Universal Comedy. Additionally, users can access Universal+ through the TV Everywhere business model, allowing subscription through TV providers. The launch of Universal+ in Latin America marks a significant milestone in the region and reflects growth for both the Universal+ platform and Amazon Prime Video. For those subscribing to Universal+, a 7-day free trial is offered, allowing users to explore the content and evaluate the service before committing to a full subscription.
