A few days ago, Netlix announced that it will roll out more Spanish-language content to its viewers starting this month. Just recently, several sources, including The Huffington Post, listed the new titles premiering on the online streaming service in July. A bunch of films, specials, and TV shows were in the lineup, which also includes classic Hispanic telenovelas.

The Huffington Post repored that Netflix will release "La Reina del Sur" and Seasons 1-2 of "El Señor de los Cielos." Buenos Aires Herald added that currently, the site also streams "El Chapulín Colorado" starring the late Mexican comedian Roberto Gómez Bolaños a.k.a. Chespirito, and "La Familia P. Luche" with Eugenio Derbez in the lead role.

Aside from these, other Hispanic classics, such as "Operacion Jaque" and "La Prepago," is now available on Netflix, NBC News noted. Brazil's "El Clon" can also be watched on the site now.

"Hispanics comprise a large part of the U.S. population, as a result they are also a large part of the current subscribers in the U.S.," Jessica Rodriguez, Netflix's VP of Content Acquisition, told NBC News. "Hispanics are highly engaged digital citizens and more likely to own digital devices and it's a natural destination for this audience."

For the full list of new content making their debut on Netflix, check out The Huffington Post's report. Note that the list is subject to change as the online streaming site adds more content.

IGN also listed the TV shows and films expiring on Netflix starting on July 1. The list includes movies such as "Cast Away," "She's All That," and "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." Included among those TV shows leaving the streaming service are "Beauty and the Beast," "Hawaii Five-O," "Melrose Place," "The Inbetweeners," and "Harper's Island."

Netflix is also set to produce an original series just like what they did on "Orange Is the New Black" and "House of Cards." NBC News reported that the streaming service will release "Club de Cuervos" on August 7 in an effort to increase membership in Latin America.

The 13-episode series is Netflix's first original project produced in Mexico and is created by director Gaz Alazraki with Mike Lam and producer Leonardo Zimbron, The Hollywood Reporter wrote.

Aside from "Club de Cuervos," Variety reported last April that the streamer will also release "Narcos," a drug crime thriller set in Colombia by Brazilian director Jose Padilha.

The Hispanic demographic is one of the fastest growing populations in the U.S., which is why Netflix's decision to offer more Spanish content is a good plan to boost sales in the country, Buenos Aires Herald reported.

Johnny Won, founder of consultancy firm Hyperstop, said that the Latino group is "a segment that absolutely cannot be ignored," the news outlet reported. Netflix's competitors, HBO and Hulu, have already released Spanish content, so it's expected that the streaming service will follow their footsteps.
