Telefónica premiered its first Colombian-made original series on the Movistar Play IPTV platform in mid‑April 2020. The six‑part comedy series, called Ruido Capital, was filmed during July–August 2019, and is available on Movistar Play in Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, and Uruguay. Ruido Capital represents the third original production that Telefónica has launched in Latin America, after two earlier releases of original series produced in Peru. It has plans to produce further content in Argentina, Chile, and Mexico. Telefónica has been increasingly using original local content to challenge the likes of Amazon, Disney, HBO, and Netflix (Telefónicawatch, #133–#135, #’138, #141, and passim).
