Update – Cox sent us this statement, confirming its launch plans for Glosi.
Glosi is a Hispanic-focused video streaming service and online portal with thousands of hours of exclusive content and original programming. The ad-free, subscription-based destination allows multiple users on one account to stream, discover, and share their favorite shows. Glosi’s unique buzz section combines compelling content with the look and feel of a premium entertainment magazine, allowing subscribers access to behind the scenes exclusives, social media updates of cast and crew, and much more. Glosi will launch its pilot offer later in August.
Cox Communications Inc. is building a premium Spanish-language network called Glosi, according to documents obtained by The Donohue Report.
The Atlanta-based cable MSO will charge $9.99 monthly for Glosi, a multiscreen service that will rely on over-the-top video distribution. Cox is already selling pre-launch subscriptions on Glosi.com.
Viewers that order the network in advance can receive a 40 percent discount for buying three months of service in advance. It is also offering a 20 percent discount to subscribers that pay for one month in advance of the launch.
Cox has not yet announced plans to launch Glosi, and the Web site does not state when the network will debut.
Glosi will feature both original content and classic programs, according to a tease posted on its Web site.
Cox formed Glosi Entertaiment LLC on July 31, 2013, according to a Georgia incorporation filing obtained by The Donohue Report. Glosi Entertainment shares the same Atlanta address as Cox Communications and parent company Cox Enterprises.
In June, Cox Communications filed a trademark application for the brand Glosi. Goods and services Cox said it wants to offer through Glosi include, “Mobile applications and downloadable software for use in accessing, viewing, streaming audio, video, and audiovisual media content in the nature of television programs, movies, videos, and music via the Internet and other electronic communications networks and to wired and wireless communication devices; provision of mobile applications and downloadable software for use in searching, selecting, managing, and recording audio, video and audiovisual media programming in the nature of television programs, movies, videos, and music.”
