Estrella Media has expanded its news content beyond its established television and radio platforms and has launched its news channel on all major streaming and online services.

The Burbank Spanish-language broadcaster debuted two weeks ago on Fox Entertainment’s free streaming site Tubi. It will appear soon on the Roku channel and Samsung’s TV Plus, as well as other digital networks.

The move makes it the first Spanish-language media in the U.S. to provide news content in live digital and streaming formats 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It has more than 23,000 movies and television shows from more than 250 content partners, including all the Hollywood studios, Estrella Media said in a release. The service’s “News on Tubi” launched recently and includes free access to news and information, including from Estrella News.

Estrella News is the first dedicated group of news professionals providing live news to Spanish-language audiences on a round-the-clock multiplatform basis, the company said.
