Global media company SPI/FilmBox announced the launch of its multi-platform, and feature rich content streaming service, FilmBox Plus which is expected to roll out worldwide by the end of 2020. The enhanced service will replace FilmBox Live, SPI/FilmBox’s content platform that has been active for 10 years. FilmBox Plus will offer AI-powered linear channels and a vast selection of VOD content ranging from movies, TV series and thematic programming. Users will be able to subscribe to the service directly or via partner platforms and devices.
FilmBox Plus works on multiple screens and platforms natively and provides a sleek, user-friendly and intuitive interface. The service is designed to integrate easily into operator set-top-boxes and offers and supports various business models such as subscription (SVOD), advertisement (AVOD), and transactional (TVOD/pay per view).
“The convergence of traditional and digital pay TV environments has created new viewer behaviors and expectations. The operators will need to cater to these demands if they want to thrive,” said Guney Yasavur, COO at SPI International. “FilmBox Plus offers a centralized content solution for both the operators and the end-user: The service integrates easily into operator set-top-boxes and offers, and enhances the overall viewing experience of the end-user by providing highly-personalized and consistently relevant content through AI-powered technologies,” continued Yasavur.
FilmBox Plus aims to combine the “lean back” viewing experience with the ease and flexibility of the on-demand option. The service features enhancements to further personalize the user experience through AI-powered linear channels, specifically curated by FilmBox Plus editors and AI technologies. Curation may be made according to mood, genre or special occasion and can be configured for different territories.
