WHE Channel is a highly-curated multiplatform channel featuring diverse and unfiltered stories from across Latin America. Our platform will be available worldwide.
WhE amplifies diverse stories across
Latin America, and gives a platform
to these stories so that anyone
looking for such content will know
exactly where to find them.
WhE moves to connect people
across generations and cultures by
hosting content that elevates our
connection to one another and
regrounds us in our humanity.
The market is oversaturated with content and sometimes it can be difficult to search endlessly through larger platforms like Amazon and Netflix. These larger platforms also don’t always cater to content that may be considered niche. For audiences outside of Latin America, our content and stories are also limited on these platforms, even though for example, the Hispanic market in the US controls over $1.5 trillion USD in buying power. That’s why having a dedicated OTT platform that caters specifically to women and other diverse audiences who are interested in viewing, learning, and being entertained by our unique stories is necessary. Many of our stories as women and marginalized groups have been overlooked, ignored, or misrepresented. Even with countless programs on larger platforms, there still isn’t enough space for our stories, so we’re creating the space for them.

WhE will contain scripted and unscripted, and short and long form formats, touching on a multitude of topics. Some of the topics and will include human behavior, fashion, gastronomy, and sex.
