Movie enthusiasts and binge-watchers will rejoice as their streaming service selection increases with the introduction of FoxFlicks.
Today, the subscription video-on-demand service has been officially launched by Foxtel, Australia’s pay-TV service provider.
Offered at no additional cost to Foxtel Movie members, FoxFlicks makes on-demand films available to customers who have the Movies and Platinum HD subscriptions. Furthermore, subscribers with Internet-powered iQ4 and iQ3 set-top boxes can access the service.
Incumbent Foxtel CEO, Patrick Delany, described FoxFlicks as a revolutionary service. He said that Foxtel has a new face through this fledgling platform. With FoxFlicks, viewers can stream films 24/7 simply and effortlessly using their preferred streaming devices.
Delany remarked that customers can now expect unrivaled quality films. Referring to it as “the most advanced movie destination in Australia,” the Foxtel executive said that FoxFlicks enables streaming fans to watch a new film daily with more than 1,000 films to access on-demand.
The FoxFlicks official website informs viewers that the service is “the epic new home” for popular new releases and customers’ favorite films. Expected to be the streaming industry’s game-changer, the expertly curated film’s collection of the new streaming service is among the things that make it a standout.
New content is added daily to the streaming platform. Movie fans will delight with a group of bespoke content playlists like action-packed ‘OD on Action’ playlist, ‘Family Flicks’ for family-oriented movies, and ‘Just Landed’ playlist for the hottest latest films.
Like other pay-TV operators, Foxtel is responding to heightened competition posed by mainstream providers like Australia’s Stan and streaming behemoth, Netflix.
Foxtel intends to make the company go public in the markets, with its initial public offering (IPO) slated by the year’s end. To keep itself financially afloat, FoxFlicks was conceived to address the company’s declining membership revenues which it has been bedeviled with.
FoxFlicks is in operation together with the Foxtel Now streaming offering. During Foxtel Now’s official launching in 2017, Peter Tonagh, Foxtel’s chief executive officer that time, acknowledged that Netflix had more excellent film collection.
In addition, he conceded that Australia’s version of Netflix – Stan – had apparently put considerable investment in original content.
Nevertheless, Tonagh said that in spite of the prevailing scenario in the digital entertainment industry, Foxtel provides unparalleled content in the Australian market. In addition, the Australian firm’s FoxFlicks will not disappoint its customers with its strong offerings.
