Review: ViX+, a complete tour of the TelevisaUnivision platform

ViX+ is an internet streaming platform that arises from the merger of two leading companies in Spanish-language content, owned by TelevisaUnivision. Launched on July 21 in Mexico, the United States and Latin America, it has more than 50,000 hours of content in Spanish and calls itself the platform with the most content in Spanish.

It will have original series and movies, as well as third-party content and you will be able to enjoy certain content without a subscription through the “Free” version where you will be able to see a wide variety of content totally free but with certain advertising intervals. In addition, in Mexico, you can enjoy more than 30 live channels under the “ViX+ Channels” section. And it doesn’t end here, In Mexico and the United States (not so for the rest of Latin America) you will have the best sports content for you to enjoy in your favorite language: Spanish.

In it we will enjoy the best novels, series and films produced by the hand of Televisa and / or Univision, but we will also have important content of Asian novels, Argentine novels, anime, children’s content, iconic classics, documentaries, bioseries, sports and much more.

ViX+, is on most streaming devices, including Android, Android TV, Google TV, iOS (iPhone & iPad), Roku, Fire TV and Samsung.

That said, now we will show you completely how the platform is and how it works.

Home & Highlights

After creating your account, the first thing you will notice is that the interface is similar to ViX, but this does not mean that the platform helps you explore the content in different different ways.

After logging in, it will take us to the main page of the platform, where the ViX+ experience will be configured that contains and groups other categories that you can explore, such as ViX+ Original, new titles that they offer us in the plus experience and something striking but that clarifies to us before subscribing is that some content can have advertising even in the Premium version.

Once we finish the registration and have the account, it will take us to the main page of the platform, where we can see all the content that the mass offers us. With a Slider with the most outstanding content of it.

On the main page of the platform we will be able to see the content that it offers us and that is grouped by categories that you can explore, such as: “ViX + Originals”, “Lo más visto”, “No te lo puedes perder”, “Series más vistas”, “Películas más vistas”, “Películas de Acción”, “Series para maratonear”, “Novelas amadas aquí y allá”, “Documentales”, “Para toda la familia”, “ViX Junior”, “Series en Tendencia”, “Eterna Juventud”, “Películas Favoritas” among others.

Programming Study

The platform also has important own and collaborative programming studios such as Lemon Studios, W Studios, Perro Azul, El Estudio, Exile, VV Studios will produce from their own studios biographical series that represent Mexican icons such as María Félix and Pedro Infante and much more.

Device

The platform supports 3 devices simultaneously, so your whole family can watch their favorite content on different devices.

Navigation & Preview

On the main page we find the navigation of the platform, without hub, and the content is displayed by rows. In the upper section, we find the search option, profile (where we will find the privacy policies and options of our account), and menu sections such as: Home, News, Sports and Channels.

As for the preview, they recommend several platform titles and some titles, usually those of ViX, contain advertising. We also have content such as documentaries, Turkish novels, anime, various movies, among others.

Search

In the upper right part we will find the logo of a magnifying glass, where it indicates the option to search for the content we are looking for. With it we will find a powerful function to find our favorite titles. Where we can find content by title, genre and some popular names.

When we click on it, the option will be displayed so that we can write the desired title, and once the title has been chosen, we will get the one we want (if it is) and the similar ones (including all genres).

Continue watching…

When we are watching a movie and we stop watching it or close the playback of it, when entering the platform again, the option to “Continue Watching” will appear in the categories that will remember where we have left it exactly.

Although this option does not come out below the slider so a priori we could say that the platform did not remind us. But don’t worry! This option is available only a little lower than normal.

Content with Advertising

Some of the content that ViX offers us, within ViX+, we will continue to see with advertising. However, in the title where it has advertising, an indication with it will appear at the top right.
