CINE SONY TELEVISION RIDES CANTINFLAS MARATHON STUNT OVER THANKSGIVING WEEKEND TO HIGHEST RATINGS IN NETWORK’S HISTORY; OUTPERFORMS ALL SPANISH-LANGUAGE ENTERTAINMENT CABLE NETWORKS IN HOUSEHOLD VIEWERSHIP DURING THANKSGIVING WEEKEND 

32 Cantinflas Movies Aired During The Marathon Now Available Free On Demand through January 19, 2017 via Network’s Authenticated CINE SONY YA Watch App and Distribution Partners

Cine Sony Television, Sony Pictures Television’s (SPT) network delivering a premium Hollywood entertainment experience in Spanish for the fast-growing U.S. Hispanic market, achieved the highest ratings in the network’s four-year history with its movie marathon of films starring legendary Mexican crossover comic star and Golden Globe winner Cantinflas. Based on comScore/Rentrak data, over the course of the four day Thanksgiving holiday weekend, from November 24 through November 27, Cine Sony Television reigned as the #1 entertainment network among all Spanish-language cable programmers in both average audience and coverage area ratings. The Thanksgiving programming stunt also propelled Cine Sony Television to a #1 finish in coverage area ratings for the entire month of November, outperforming both major Spanish-language broadcast and cable channels such as Univision, Telemundo, Galavision, ESPN Deportes, Cinelatino, Discovery en Español, NBC Universo, and Nat Geo Mundo.

Through January 19, 2017, films from the marathon are available On Demand for viewing with the whole family through the network’s VOD and authenticated watch app CINE SONY YA and distribution partners, including CenturyLink, Comcast, Cox Communications, DISH, DIRECTV, FiOS by Verizon, and PlayStation Vue, among others.

Between November 24 and 27, Cine Sony’s homage to Cantinflas netted it the #1 most watched entertainment network in all of Spanish-language cable in total household viewership, A18-34 and A18-49, and outpaced #2 ranked Discovery en Español by 22 percent in viewership. Fueling the network’s first-ever monthly ratings crown, according to comScore/Rentrak, a whopping 85 percent of Cine Sony Television’s distribution audience tuned in during the month of November.

“In a world where content is king, we knew a supersized serving of Cantinflas during Thanksgiving would deliver in a big way for our loyal viewers who enjoy watching movies as a family and advertisers looking to reach the coveted and highly engaged Hispanic A18-34 and A18-49 demographic,” said Tom Troy, SVP distribution, Sony Pictures Television U.S. Networks. “We’re tremendously proud to not only have achieved the highest ratings in Cine Sony’s history during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend but also excited to be able to offer an even greater share of fans the opportunity to experience the legacy of Cantinflas via On Demand, anytime, anywhere through the remainder of the holidays.”

Mario Moreno (1911-1993), professionally known as Cantinflas, was a prolific Mexican comic film actor, producer, and screenwriter. Commonly regarded as “the Charlie Chaplin of Mexico” for his onscreen persona of the underdog who overcame all odds in more than 55 films, he was a business leader, activist and philanthropist who became a symbol of hope for the downtrodden and impoverished. He won a Golden Globe award in 1957 and received an additional nomination in 1961.

Austin, TX — Thursday, November 5, 2015 — El Rey Network will bring the award-winning, longest running sci-fi/comedy series in history, Red vs. Blue, to television for the first time. Premiering December 5th on El Rey Network, all 13 seasons of Rooster Teeth’s Red vs. Blue have been lovingly and carefully curated and formatted from the original digital shorts into 95 half-hour episodes, which will air weekend mornings from 6:00am to 10:00am ET/PT.

“I’ve been wanting to carve out an animated component to El Rey’s lineup and this was just the perfect fit for the network. Red vs. Blue is cool, quirky, badass and a little off-beat,” said El Rey Network Founder and Chairman Robert Rodriguez. “It’s a truly groundbreaking machinima series, with a strong focus on quality writing and pioneering motion capture techniques. I can’t wait for the El Rey Network audience to check out.”

“As young independent filmmakers starting out with no crew but a huge desire to make original content, Robert was a huge inspiration. So it seems incredibly fitting that Red vs. Blue will now have a home on El Rey Network,” said Rooster Teeth Founder and CEO Matt Hullum. “It’s the perfect fit for our brand of action, comedy and general animated mayhem.”

Based on the award-winning Halo® video game franchise, Red vs. Blue is a hilarious and action-packed series set in the distant future that tells the story of two groups of soldiers battling for control of the least desirable piece of real estate in the known universe – a box canyon in the middle of nowhere. Premiering in 2002, Red vs. Blue continues to grow as both a global entertainment phenomenon and popular staple of the Halo universe as it enters its 14th season.

Red vs. Blue embodies the irreverent humor that lurks beneath Halo’s sci-fi universe but also the creativity that is at the heart of our franchise,” said Kiki Wolfkill, Studio Head of Halo Interactive Entertainment and Channel. “Rooster Teeth is a pioneer in web entertainment and machinima with Red vs. Blue, and we consider the series to be an important part of Halo’s history and future. It combines the best of Halo gaming with Rooster Teeth’s edgy humor on a network renowned for high-quality, exciting content.”
