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.

History[edit]

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]
