LAP TV (Latin American Pay Television Service) is a Latin American pay television company owned by Fox International Channels. It runs several film and television series channels, such as Cinecanal, Movie City and The Film Zone.


LAP TV was formed as a partnership between Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Paramount Pictures, and Fox in Latin America[2] in 1993[1] with Universal Studios joining later.[3] On May 22, 2012, Fox International Channels acquired MGM's stake in LAP TV.[4] In March 2013, Fox purchased Paramount's position in the company, thus becoming the sole owner of LAP TV, and sign a content agreement with LAP TV.[2]
