Linear TV & VOD service

Skjár 1

Skjár 1 branded linear TV service available on all devices

About Filmflex

Filmflex was founded in 1989, distributing feature films on VHS cassettes to video rental shops in Iceland. Today they continue to focus on their core business, content licensing and delivery but have also expanded and now offer a broad range of products and services, including the Magine Pro powered Skjár 1.

Challenge

Filmflex approached Magine Pro looking to build a linear TV service available on web, iOS, and Android devices, as well as the big screen through Android TV and Apple TV. The subscription service, Skjár 1 was required to feature 15 linear channels overall and launch in Iceland.

Solution

  • Create a Skjár 1 branded linear TV service.
  • Leverage Magine’s Media Pipeline to securely ingest and protect 15 linear TV channels. Channels include those owned by Filmflex and international channels Filmflex hold the rights to distribute.
  • Provide secure access to the Magine Pro Console, enabling Skjár1 to independently manage and curate their OTT service.
  • Facilitate a secure subscription payment system to ease onboarding for Skjár 1 subscribers that is supported by Adyen.
  • Deploy the Skjár 1 branded web service, iOS and Android apps alongside Android TV and Apple TV applications.
  • Leverage Magine Pro’s CDN provisioning network and distribution infrastructure to ensure high-quality and low-latency video streams 24/7 to all requesting devices.
  • Provide Skjár 1 with 2nd and 3rd customer support.

    Result

    Magine Pro successfully built and deployed a Skjár 1 branded subscription service for launch in Iceland. The linear TV service features an intuitive EPG display for 15 available channels and is available on web and mobile devices that support iOS and android applications. Skjár 1 also opted to boost their SVOD service by expanding onto Apple TV and Android TV.

    We approached Magine Pro looking to expand into the OTT market and found their Premium solution the perfect fit for our proposed linear TV service. The ability to edit and customize the service independently and add extra features made them the perfect partner for Filmflex.
