Audio Network, the music library for content creators that licenses pre-cleared tracks for broadcast and digital use, has launched an extensive catalogue of Latin music to serve both Latin and non Latin clients.
Audio Network made its announcement during the National Association of Television Programming Executives (NATPE), taking place in Miami Beach Jan. 24-26.
Audio Network already had Latin repertoire as part of its 40,000-track catalogue, but last year embarked on a concerted effort to grow its Latin library in response to growing requests from international clients, including MTV Networks, HBO, BBC and Endemol. Earlier this month, the company announced it had struck a new deal with Disney Latin America and renewed key partnerships with Telemundo, Claxson, Cinelatino, MVS Television, Warner, MTVTrs, SI TV and HBO Latin America to provide them with unlimited access to music for their programs.
All the tracks in Audio Network’s roster are cleared for use worldwide, thus allowing film and television producers to use them without copyright concerns in any territory. Broadcasters pay a yearly fee that allows them to access any track in the catalogue.
