Atresplayer Premium (often stylized as ATRESplayer Premium) is a Spanish paid subscription video on-demand over-the-top streaming service of Atresmedia.

History and description

It was launched in Spain on 8 September 2019.[2] The first original series released on the platform was El nudo.[2] Besides the regular services offered by the ad-supported Atresplayer [es] (catch-up service and some series), Atresplayer Premium offers three main types of programming: Premium Exclusivo (full releases before free-to-air broadcasting), Premium Preestreno (series releasing a week before free-to-air broadcasting), and exclusive programming.[3] As of 30 June 2020, it had 253,000 subscribers.[3][4]

Unlike its rival Mitele Plus (initially betting on football/sport as main business line while leasing exclusive content rights in Spain to Amazon Prime Video),[5][2] Atresplayer Premium restricted its offer to streaming original programming.[2] It is available outside of Spain in Latin America, United States, Canada and Mexico under the "Paquete Premium Internacional" subscription mode.[6] There is however geoblocked content.[6]

Since Atresplayer Premium's launch, much of the Atresmedia original programming has been first released on the platform, including series such as La valla, Veneno, #Luimelia, Toy Boy or Perdida.
