Sony Spin was a Latin American cable television channel, launched on 1 May 2011, replacing the local version of Animax.[2] It was shut down on 1 July 2014 due to low ratings and reception.


Formerly known as Animax, it was Sony's first attempt to offer a 24-hour anime channel in Latin America, replacing Locomotion. On 1 July 2014, Sony Spin was removed from pay-TV providers and replaced with a localised variant of A&E’s Lifetime, a television network targeted at female audiences.[3]
