The advertising-funded online video library offers hundreds of full-length movies with stars such as Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kevin Bacon which viewers can watch in their native language through the open internet and on mobile devices using the iOS and Android operating systems through the free Popcornflix app.
Besides the USA, Popcornflix is already available in several international markets including Canada, the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, Hong Kong and Singapore. According to Screen Media Ventures, the launch of Popcornflix is a prequel to the imminent expansion of its sister platforms Frightpix, PopcornflixComedy, PopcornflixKids and PopcornflixEspanol into European markets.
“Consumers are increasingly demanding the ease and convenience of watching their favourite movies and TV series on their own schedule and on their preferred device,” said David Fannon, executive vice president at Popcornflix. “Our expansive content library and international reach makes Popcornflix uniquely positioned to deliver great content in multiple markets in localised languages. We’re very eager to work with localised content providers to acquire new TV series content for our growing channels.”
The Popcornflix family of streaming media channels are advertising-supported platforms. Each film or programme includes pre-roll, spot ads and banner ads that offer content and advertising partners an opportunity to connect with a movie viewing audience.
