SVOD SERVICE

Docsville

A documentary-focused SVOD service that includes innovative discovery features.

About Docsville

The documentary streaming service, Docsville, is the brainchild of award-winning journalist and former editor of the BBC’s Storyville, Nick Fraser and producer Lawrence Elman. Their vision was to create an immersive experience for the documentary community that hero quality content over quantity. Each month, Docsville users can dive into a curated, themed selection of feature documentaries alongside articles, short content and daily Pop Ups.

Docsville approached Magine Pro seeking a partner that could offer exceptional tech solutions and a whole lot more. They required an experienced company that could help grow their business and young brand, as well as bring to life their vision for a documentary-focused VOD streaming service, one that offers innovative solutions that enhance the user experience and eases the discovery of great content.
