iflix and Starvision Deepen Partnership
iflix and Starvision have deepened their partnership to bring nine Starvision titles, including Yowis Ben 2, exclusively to iflix, only 120 days after their cinematic release as part of iflix’s growing originals offering.
All iflix users on iflixFREE and iflixVIP will be able to stream and download Yowis Ben 2, for free, mid-year, with the releases of Lampor, Dua Garis Biru, Pocong: The Origin, Ghostwriter, and Sirep following by year-end; while Wish Comes True, Mariposa, and Imperfect will premiere exclusively on iflix in 2020. The nine-movie slate will join the rapidly growing library of “iflix Originals” produced by Starvision, including TEN – The Secret Mission, The Underdogs, and Ernest Prakasa’s Susah Sinyal, in a joint-mission to extend traditional movie runs for the benefit of fans.
Starvision has established itself as a market leader with the production of some of the country’s most popular movies, 84 of which are now available on iflix, including Get Married 1-5, Raditya Dika’s Cinta Brontosaurus, Manusia Setengah Salmon, Marmut Merah Jambu, and Koala Kumal; Ernest Prakasa’s Ngenest and Cek Toko Sebelah; Keramat, Perahu Kertas double feature, and many more.
In 2018, Ernest Prakasa’s Susah Sinyal was a massive success on iflix, outperforming South Korean zombie apocalypse action thriller Train to Busan, and skyrocketing to number one as the most watched ‘iflix Originals’ film on the platform.
Mark Francis, iflix Global Director of Original Programming, said, “By deepening our partnerships with top movie studios such as Starvision, iflix is able to provide greater reach and accessibility both here and in the region, to Indonesian’s best entertainment – and not long after their theatrical runs are concluded. We don’t see this significantly threatening cinema attendance, which is on the rise in Indonesia. Rather, it adds value to franchises like Yowis Ben, allowing studios to invest more into future, bigger budget productions. iflix doesn’t contract the movie ecosystem… we expand it.”
Chand Parwez Servia, President Director of Starvision, added, “Starvision is very excited to work together with iflix to make high-quality Indonesian cinematic content available to every mobile device in Indonesia.”
