The SVOD platform will debut on Vodafone TV in Spain, streaming episodes of series including 'The Walking Dead,' 'Deep State' and 'Legion.'

FoxNow, the streaming service of Fox Networks Group, will debut in Europe through Spain’s Vodafone TV, the companies announced today in Madrid.

The service, which will include full seasons of series from the Fox and Fox Life channels as well as a catalog of other films and series, will be available exclusively to Vodafone TV Total customers starting Dec. 14.

Highlights of the FoxNow European service include drama series The Walking Dead, Deep State, False Flag and Legion as well as Vis a Vis, Fox Network Group Espana's first local production with Mediapro's Globomedia.

Telecommunications giant Vodafone is ramping up its service in Spain in a push to compete with other operators in the territory, particularly Telefonica’s Movistar, which on Tuesday announced it would be including Netflix in its new online offerings. Netflix is also available on Vodafone TV in Spain, alongside such channels as AXN Now, HBO Espana and Amazon Prime Video.

Ignacio Garcia-Legaz, director of Vodafone TV, said the company's goal was “to offer the best portfolio of film and television series” in Spain but said the group had no plans to follow Movistar+ and Netflix and make a major investment in the production of original content for the Spanish market.
