Netflix is becoming a happier place for Latinos living in the U.S.  The streaming service, home of some of the latest movies and popular TV shows, is now expanding its Spanish-language content.  In addition to some of the foreign and cine Latino films it offers, Netflix will release new titles as of June.  

News made the rounds that the Internet television network will premiere the outrageous original Spanish-language series, "Club de Cuervos,"  from Mexican filmmaker Gaz Alazraki, in all Netflix territories on August 7, 2015.  In addition, it will offer a more robust selection of Hispanic titles to its U.S. members, ranging from tele-series and novelas, to kids shows, comedies, documentaries and movies as a result of expanded partnerships with leading broadcasters Univision, UniMas, Telemundo and others. 

“Generations have loved shows like 'El Chavo' and we are confident that they will enjoy recent titles like 'La Dictadura Perfecta' as well as the latest addition to our originals slate, 'Club de Cuervos,'” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix. “We’re thrilled to be working with Univision and Telemundo as well as a range of amazing Latin American content creators to enrich our Hispanic content mix in the U.S., allowing families to watch some of their favorite shows together when and how they want.”
