Dominican Netflix gets support from YouTube
Alfonso Rodriguez has received important backing from YouTube, which says it will exclude content of movies, TV series, concerts and shows by Dominican producers that has been uploaded without the authorization of its authors. Rodriguez is the founder of the TV portal, pelidom.com that streams Dominican content on the Internet and to which viewers can obtain access in return for a monthly fee.
Rodriguez said the deal benefits producers because in the past anyone could film the concerts, shows or even upload a movie without the consent of the authors. Now the YouTube agreement makes it attractive to reach an agreement with Pelidom to secure protection for their content.
In an interview with MetroRD, Rodriguez said that this means that 2,300 YouTube videos would be coming down. The channel began in April 2016.
He says viewers can subscribe for US$6.99 a month for unlimited viewing of the Dominican-produced content. He also announced that news channels like CDN would be streaming their content on Pelidom.
