Cariflix is a product with solid roots in TeleCuraçao and UTS and was developed by Streann Media. Mr. Hugo Lew Jen Tai, general manager of TeleCuraçao and the representatives of Streann Media received the PRODU Awards 2018 during the NAB show in Las Vegas. We must say that Mr. Alfredo Yanes of Produ Awards explained that Cariflix figures among the greatest in the region.

Cariflix Caribbean is a fact. More than 30 producers from the Caribbean are now affiliated to Cariflix via GT Caribbean (GT=Great Things). Users can already see that programs from Caribbean producers are being uploaded to Cariflix.

The massive acceptance and success of Carflix resounds with already 2 great achievements: The Curaçao Innovation Awards 2017 and now the PRODU Awards Tecnología 2018 in Las Vegas.
