There’s A New Netflix-Like Service In Mexico And Of Course, Mexicans Clowned The Hell Out Of It

Mexican TV giant Televisa recently announced the launch of blim, a streaming on-demand service that’s basically Mexico’s answer to Netflix. Netflix is available in Mexico, but without some of the content available in the U.S. The subscription fee for blim is 109 pesos, which currently comes out to about $6. Like Netflix, blim also features original series that are only available on its platform. How did Mexicans react to the news? By making fun of Televisa’s decision to compete with Netflix, of course.

In a totally unexpected turn of events, Alfredo “El Mochomo” Beltran Leyva, one of El Chapo’s biggest enemies, pled guilty to drug trafficking before his case went to trial.

“Yes, Your Honor, I helped my brother Arturo and I conspired with my brother Arturo,” said Beltrán Leyva. The conspiring included trafficking cocaine, meth, marijuana and heroine to the United States. He downplayed his part in the Sinaloa Cartel by saying he was simply a member of the organization and not the leader. On June 6th, he’s expected to get a minimum of 10 years to a life sentence.

El Mochomo and his three brothers were former allies of El Chapo’s Sinaloa cartel, but split ways in 2008 provoking one of the bloodiest drug war periods in Mexico. But don’t expect him to show up as a witness against El Chapo.

“After considering many personal and legal factors, my client decided to plead guilty to the indictment without an agreement with the government,” said A. Eduardo Balarezo, Beltran Leyva’s attorney. Prosecutors state side are crossing their fingers that he’ll change his mind if El Chapo is extradited to the United States.
