Box-office blockbuster “The Hunger Games” will air on Telemundo in 2015. The Spanish-language network has signed a multi-year licensing agreement – until 2017 – with Lionsgate to broadcast several films from the entertainment company’s library, including “The Last Stand,” (currently in theaters) “The Three Musketeers” and 16 other titles.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
This deal extends an ongoing relationship between Telemundo Media and Lionsgate.
The two companies previously partnered to bring other blockbusters to Telemundo. Last year, the Spanish-language network aired “Twilight” saga films and have yet to broadcast “The Expendables,” “The Expendables 2” and “Red,” among others.
According to Nielsen, Telemundo aired 7 of the top 10 movies among adults 18-49 audiences and 6 of the top 10 movies among total viewers. Telemundo also presented the #1 movies of the year among kids 2-11 and persons 12-17.
