GHOST x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 'OOZE'

"When GHOST hit GNC shelves in 2016, we knew this was the start of a long and fruitful partnership. We're proud to be the exclusive retailer for this exciting collaboration between GHOST and Nickelodeon," said Kevin Maloberti, VP, Merchandising at GNC. "GHOST is all about pushing the boundaries of what a supplement brand should be, and this desire to be the first through innovation matches what we're doing at GNC."

The GHOST x TMNT line at GNC consists of four "OOZE" flavored products:

  • LEGEND®–Inspired by Leonardo ("the leader"), GHOST LEGEND® is GHOST's flagship pre-workout product that delivers energy and enhances performance and focus.
  • PUMP–Inspired by Raphael ("the fit one"), GHOST® PUMP is a caffeine-free nitric oxide product… the pump.
  • GAMER and GAMER NON-STIM (caffeine-free)–Inspired by Michelangelo and Donatello ("the fun one" and "the thinker," respectively) and offered in both a stim version and for the first time, a non-stim option. GHOST® GAMER was custom built by gamers for gamers and contains ingredients clinically studied that have been shown to enhance gameplay.

"I grew up watching and obsessing over the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so this exclusive GNC launch is one of the most exciting collaborations we've ever done," said Daniel Lourenco, Co-Founder and CEO of GHOST. "Even as licensing becomes more prevalent within sports nutrition, GHOST's authentic and collaborative approach is unmatched. From the inspired products to the merch and apparel, the GHOST x TMNT partnership is equal parts nostalgic and innovative… this first release is just the beginning."

Movistar TV Subscribers in Latin America Can Now Access Paramount Plus At No Extra Cost

Nick News Brief: Movistar TV subscribers in Latin America can now access Paramount+ Latinoamérica at no extra cost!

Movistar TV ahora incluye suscripción a Paramount+ sin costo

Una buena noticia es la que tenemos para quienes cuentan con servicio contratado de televisión de Movistar y es que a partir de ahora pueden tener acceso gratuito a Paramount+, la plataforma de streaming que llegó a nuestro país hace poco más de un año y que en su catálogo cuenta con la tremenda serie HALO, entre varias producciones más.

Para poder acceder a este servicio debemos ingresar a la página web de Paramount+ (también puede realizarse a través de la app para smartphones) e ingresar al apartado que indica “iniciar sesión”. Una vez ahí debemos elegir la opción “ingresar con proveedor”, luego elegir Movistar y finalmente ingresar el mismo usuario y clave que tenemos para ingresar a Movistar TV.

Ojo que si no tienes creada una cuenta de Paramount+ tendrás que hacerlo, pero para ello no pedirá ninguna tarjeta de crédito ni datos de pagos parecidos, bastando solo un nombre de usuario y una contraseña.

¿Qué incluye esta suscripción?

Nosotros ya estamos probando el servicio y pudimos percatarnos que es la suscripción completa, es decir, la misma que cuesta actualmente $3.199 y que permite ver el contenido hasta en tres dispositivos, con máximo dos de ellos en forma simultánea.

En cuanto al contenido, en Paramount+ podemos encontrar, por ejemplo, los últimos especiales de Southpark, las primeras siete temporadas de The Office y otras series clásicas retro como Sabrina, la bruja adolescente y también iCarly, incluyendo su reboot que se estrenó el año pasado. Esto es posible porque Paramount es dueña de Nickelodeon.

Además, cuenta con películas de estreno cercano como la reciente Paw Patroll The Movie y constantemente van dotando el catálogo con cintas que pasaron hace poco en la pantalla grande, así como también otras antiguas que pertenecen a su catálogo.

Pero no es lo único, ya que a diferencia de otros servicios, incluye varios conciertos en vivo, especialmente los en su tiempo exitosos MTV Unplugged, ya que aquel clásico canal de televisión también forma parte de sus marcas. Ya hemos encontrado los conciertos desenchufados de Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam, Café Tacvba, Nirvana, Molotov, Alejandro Sanz y los más modernos realizados por Los Auténticos Decadentes, Miley Cyrus y los BTS.
