The latest addition to Netflix’s content library comes from Latin America. The streaming company has licensed more than 1,500 hours of programming a year from Venezuelan cable network Radio Caracas Televisión. The deal covers 11 shows — telenovelas, movies, series and documentaries, including RCTV’s recent hit Worlds Apart (Calle Luna, Calle Sol) and staples Finding Mr. Perfect and My Sweet Fat Valentine. Additionally, Netflix has acquired distribution rights to Pablo Escobar, Angel or Demon?, Colombia’s highest-grossing documentary. This will be the first time the movie will be shown outside of Colombia. The pact was brokered by Jorge Granier, managing director of RCTV’s Miami-based subsidiary RCTV International, which recently partnered with producer Gary Pearl on the U.S. format rights to the RCTV library.
