iflix-Media Prima Partnership To Boost Local Content Offering!

iflix announced its latest partnership with local media company Media Prima to boost local content!

Through this partnership, iflix will stream Media Prima’s content a mere one hour after the latter’s screening on its own platform. This will give iflix about 1,000 hours of Media Prima’s past content in the form of a separate Tonton channel on iflix.

 

The iflix-Media Prima Partnership Expands Viewership

This partnership will enable Media Prima to increase its reach all over the country, as its content is screened on iflixFREE, iflix‘s ad-supported tier.

 

New Content And Drama productions Coming Soon!

Both companies worked together before on the hit local drama Nur 2 through Primeworks Studios.

And soon it will include plans for new content and more drama co-productions through the iflix-Media Prima partnership.

 “This alliance is a significant milestone and another considerable boost to iflix’s local content offering. Over the past three months, we have accelerated the pivot away from Western towards local and regional programming, to deliver the most relevant and compelling content to users in our territories for free.” said Mark Britt, iflix Co-Founder and Group CEO.

A Broken Crayon – From Accident To Ironman In 6 Months!

iflix just announced A Broken Crayon – an inspirational documentary about Azran Osman-Rani’s gruelling recovery from a major accident to rejoining the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in less than six months!

 

A Broken Crayon – From Accident To Ironman In 6 Months!

On 27 May 2018, Azran Osman-Rani was on a routine training ride in Kuala Lumpur, when he was hit by a car.

Badly injured with multiple broken bones and a haematoma, he was expected to undergo months of physiotherapy before he could think about returning to triathlon competitions.

Yet, he underwent a gruelling intensive recovery process to make a triumphant return to the 2018 Ironman 70.3 World Championships… all in less than six months after his accident!

A Broken Crayon chronicles interviews of the first responders, Azran’s wife Azreen Osman-Rani and the specialists who treated him, as well as commentary from Azran himself.

It will premiere exclusively on iflixFERE and iflixVIP on 11 April 2019, so make sure you check it out!

The permanent scars all over my body from this accident remind me every day of the physical pain and mental anguish I went through from this ordeal and the difficult recovery process,” said Azran.

“But this documentary reminds me that no matter how tough things were, I pulled through, inch by inch, and got back up. And that I did it only with tremendous support from so many amazing people. I hope this helps to inspire others that life isn’t about avoiding risks but living it fully even if it means getting knocked down hard but learning how to get back up every time,” he said.

The iflix Progressive Web App Launched For Android!

The iflix Progressive Web App (PWA) has just been launched to further drive online engagement of iflix users. Find out what this means for your online viewing on iflix!

 

The iflix Progressive Web App For Android!

iflix just launched a pure web app with a native-like experience for Android mobile devices.

With the iflix Progressive Web App (PWA), consumers no longer need to download the iflix app from their app store to enjoy many of iflix’s most popular features.

The all-new PWA runs self-contained in an app-like experience to ensure speed of access and reliability, even in areas of low connectivity.

Combining the user experience offered by its native application with this new mobile web experience, iflix now offers seamless access and the best of both app and web worlds.

 

Benefits Of Using The iflix Progressive Web App!

iflix’s new mobile web experience works on-demand and is always accessible without taking up users’ smartphone memory or data.

As it is lighter than a native app, the iflix Progressive Web App (PWA) loads faster and consumes less data and storage.

Companies like iflix benefit greatly too when they switch to a Progressive Web App, including :

  • An average 68% increase in mobile traffic for businesses
  • 15% faster loading time and 52% increased conversions
  • 25% less storage than native apps

 

The Proof Is In The Pudding!

Consumer brands like Twitter and Starbucks have reported significant business gains utilising this web technology.

Twitter saw 65% increase in page views following the launch of their Progressive Web App (PWA).

Forbes saw an increase of 43% in time spent per user session.

Tinder’s Progressive Web App (PWA) saw load times decrease by 50% in comparison to its native app which leads to longer session times and increased engagement.

Andy Paterson, iflix Vice President of Product, said, “This launch is a significant leap forward aligning technology development to our vision of democratising entertainment for the mass market.”

“Our new mobile web app will deliver great experiences for any device in any connectivity.”

“This is enormously valuable to customers in emerging markets which are mobile-first but can face challenges when it comes to consistent and reliable internet access.”

The new iflix Progressive Web App (PWA) will better serve its over one billion consumers throughout Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

You Can Now Catch Premium Malaysian Football On iflix!

January 29, 2018 – iflix and Football Malaysia LLP are thrilled to announce their game-changing exclusive joint venture, in the most significant collaboration in Malaysian sports history. The unprecedented landmark partnership between Football Malaysia LLP and iflix aims to bring premier Malaysian football back to its millions of fans throughout the country.

 

Catch Premium Malaysian Football On iflix!

For the first time since the league was founded, football fans everywhere in Malaysia and beyond will be able to live stream every Liga Super, Piala Malaysia, and marquee Piala FA matches exclusively on the all new ‘Football Malaysia on iflix’ channel.

From February 3rd, football fans around the region will have virtual front row seats to the entire professional football season, including 22 rounds with six matches weekly for Liga Super, 74 Piala FA and Piala Malaysia tournament matches as well as select Liga Premier matches and the Piala Sumbangsih match. In addition to live streamed matches, users will also be able to access new features including match highlights and player interviews.

As a part of the companies’ joint mission to bring football back to the people, anyone with access to the internet will be able to live stream four Liga Super matches every week along with 46 tournament matches and select Liga Premier matches for free, regardless of their subscription status. New users and those with an active iflix subscription will further be able to live stream, catch up and enjoy all matches and features.

 

The Future Of Malaysian Football

Football is widely recognised as Malaysia’s most popular sport. With only seven million total households with televisions, only a small percentage of the population was able to enjoy the competition without physically attending matches. Football has been largely inaccessible to the majority of Malaysians.

This first-of its-kind joint venture between Football Malaysia LLP and iflix represents the future of sporting entertainment, putting fans first, bringing Malaysian football back to the people. Now, all 20 million smartphone owners and their friends and families in Malaysia, will have unlimited live access to premier Malaysian football for the first time ever.

[adrotate group=”2″]

Football Association of Malaysia President and Football Malaysia LLP Chairman, the Crown Prince of Johor, Tunku Ismail ibni Sultan Ibrahim commented: “I am a firm believer and supporter of unity and moderation in our diverse nation. Football is the people’s game. It brings us together and can help to unite us. Malaysians everywhere should be able to enjoy it without restriction. With iflix, we have found likeminded partners and a key common goal; to return football to the people and restore its former glory.”

iflix Group Co-founder and Chairman, Patrick Grove said: “Over the last twenty years, I have founded several businesses here with the ambition of making the things Malaysians most want, more accessible and easier to find, from homes and cars, to news, culture and entertainment, and now Malaysians’ greatest love, football. This country has given me so much both on a personal and professional level. It’s our turn to give back.”

iflix and Football Malaysia will additionally create exciting new competitions and content expressly for football fans, including a series of entertainment and lifestyle original productions about and around the world of football for both broader audiences and hard-core fans alike.

The iflix HD Streaming Q&A With Ash Crick

The videos that iflix streams to your mobile devices may seem sharp but they were not HD in quality. At least, not till iflix started streaming in HD in February 2017. In addition to the increased resolution, they also doubled the audio fidelity of the streaming video. Check out the full details on iflix HD streaming below!

 

iflix Introduces iflix HD!

iflix Global Director of Labs, Data Intelligence and Content Technology, Ash Crick, gave a quick overview of the iflix HD upgrades at the launch event.

Here are the key takeaway points :

  • iflix started streaming some of their movies and TV shows in HD quality beginning February 2017.
  • In addition to increasing the resolution, they also doubled the quality of the audio.

 

Q&A With Ash Crick On iflix & iflix HD

We then had the opportunity to ask Ash some questions about iflix and iflix HD.

Here are the key takeaway points :

[adrotate banner=”4″]
  • The iflix HD content is currently being offered in the HD resolution of 720p, not the full HD resolution of 1080p.
  • Beginning on 24 January 2017 March, all new content added to iflix will be in HD quality, with the improved audio quality.
  • Over the next month or two, iflix will start offering their older content in HD quality as well.
  • The audio is not being offered in the HD Audio standard, but rather improved in its perceived quality.
  • The new HD content is not currently available for the iflix Download & Watch Offline (DWO) feature.
  • When iflix makes the DWO files available in HD, their download size will be about twice that of the regular SD files.
  • The bandwidth used to stream the new iflix HD content will be 1.5X to 2.5X more than streaming the older SD content.
  • The Download & Watch Offline (DWO) files for iflix HD content should be available in “the next 60 days“.
  • Ash is confident that iflix will allow users to stream their Download & Watch Offline (DWO) files to a Chromecast device in 2017.
  • iflix HD is currently available only in Malaysia, but iflix will be rolling it out to the other countries over the next 30-60 days.

iflix Seize Ctrl Hackathon Reveals Local Hacking Talents

26 September 2016iflix, the world’s leading Internet TV service for emerging markets, offering subscribers unlimited access to thousands of TV shows, movies and more, hosted its inaugural 24-hour hackathon Seize Ctrl in conjunction with its ‘Hacked by Mr Robot’ campaign to celebrate the Season 2 Finale of its hit exclusive Emmy award winning show, Mr. Robot.

 

iflix Hackathon Seize Ctrl

Seize Ctrl was conceived in true Mr. Robot fashion – a hackathon designed to have coders dig deep into the iflix systems and application, and find ways to improve, create, evolve or takeover features and functionalities within the iflix service.

12 teams, consisting primarily of college students and young developers, competed in the grueling 24-hour challenge, with iflix’s engineering teams providing guidance and mentorship. Seize Ctrl allowed iflix to further cultivate innovation within the Malaysian technology ecosystem, providing a forum for talent to build features from ideation to prototypes/actual working proofs of concept, a process that typically takes months to achieve, in just 24-hours. The challenge was immense and results were astounding.

The winning team, known as the The Hackbots led by Ghis Bakour took away the top cash prize of RM5,000 for their development of “Campaigns,” a feature that allows iflix users to initiate campaigns around their content choices and wishes. Producing a working prototype in less than a day, The Hackbots programmed a feature in-app that allows users to crowdsource opinions and votes for movies and TV shows they want to watch on iflix.

This exceptional display of innovation is perfectly in line with iflix’s commitment to understanding what its members want and delivering on that demand. Second and third placed teams also took away cash prizes, while other teams received Mr. Robot merchandise and iflix subscriptions.

[adrotate banner=”4″]

CEO of iflix Malaysia, Azran Osman-Rani said, “There are so many incredibly talented people in Malaysia’s tech community and iflix is honoured to have had the opportunity to create a forum for them to explore their creativity and innovation. Seize Ctrl is a testament to our ongoing commitment to promote excellence in the Malaysian ICT industry through supporting and growing young local talent.”

Seize Ctrl was organised in conjunction with iflix’s ‘Hacked by Mr. Robot’ campaign to celebrate the two part season 2 finale of iflix’s first run exclusive and worldwide smash hit, Mr. Robot. The campaign included the ‘hacking’ and takeover of digital billboards across Klang Valley, the iflix website and mobile app, in addition to the social media accounts of a number of Malaysia’s most high profile celebrities and influencers including Sazzy Falak, Jehan Miskin, Roshan from K-town Clan, Ann Osman and many more. Mr. Robot finale episodes aired exclusively on iflix less than 24-hours after their initial U.S. broadcast, followed by the immediate availability of Seasons 1 and 2 as full box sets on iflix.
