MegaMedia announced on Thursday the renewal of its agreement with the Brazilian giant.
MegaMedia, mother company of the Chilean channel Mega, announced on Thursday the renewal of its agreement with Globo.
“It is an honor that Globo once again gave a vote of confidence to have its productions that have the highest standards of production, acting and script. They know that MegaMedia takes care of their products and will give them the corresponding enhancement,” said Juan Ignacio Vicente, director of Content and International Business at MegaMedia.
“This renewal confirms Mega’s commitment to nourishing its screen with the best content offered by the audiovisual market to please the entire audience,” he added.
The announcement came just hours after rumors circulated that the deal had fallen.
The news had been given by the specialized media Fotech.cl, citing Mega sources who assured that the companies would not renew the exclusivity contract that they had in force for almost four years.
Mega acquired the exclusive rights to Globo’s new fiction at the end of 2016, thus ending a nearly 40-year history between the Brazilian company and Canal 13.
In these years, the leading audience channel in Chile only premiered eight Globo productions. In all of 2020, for example, the only Brazilian telenovela that premiered in Chile was Pride and Passion.
Insensato corazón is also currently on the air, but it is a rerun: Channel 13 broadcast it in Chile in 2012.
Among the Globo fictions that were released by Mega are titles such as Totalmente diva, El otro lado del paraíso, Querer sin límites or Justicia.
