Magine Pro powers FlixOlé’s OTT partnership with
Telefonica’s Movistar Plus+

FlixOlé, a major Spanish streaming service recently announced an expansion to their direct to consumer offering in partnership with Telefonica’s pay TV Movistar Plus+. Magine Pro in collaboration with FlixOlé and Telefonica, developed a custom set-top-box application for use on Movistar’s 4 Million Households.

Magine Pro has been the technology partner to Spanish movie streamer FlixOlé since its inception in 2018, delivering the end to end OTT platform & applications. Since the launch, the technical operation has involved other distribution and integration with partners such as CaixaBank, El Corte Inglés, Orange and Amazon Prime. This new integration with Movistar+ is by far the most advanced.

In addition to the FlixOlé set-top-box application, the integration also involves metadata integration, providing a unified search experience through the Movistar Plus+ platforms, and direct billing through the Movistar Plus+ Service, allowing Movistar Plus+ users to pay for the FlixOlé service through their Movistar Account.

“The main objective of the Magine Pro OTT platform is to be able to scale our partners’ services into successful growth. FlixOlé is a great example of this”, says Matthew Wilkinson, CEO of Magine. “The service has been very successful growing organically, taking the service step by step with additional distribution partners. The Movistar Plus+ integration is also an important step for us as a SaaS OTT platform, being able to take our partners into the most advanced integrations when they grow.”

“Magine Pro has been our close partner since we started our service and cooperation has made it easier for us to focus on content, marketing and distribution” says Sophie de Mac Mahon, CEO of FlixOlé. “They are key to our success, and we look forward to presenting the FlixOlé service to the Movistar Plus+ subscribers in the coming months thanks to this integration.”

About FlixOlé in Movistar Plus+
In step one the FlixOlé service will be available to Movistar Plus+ customers all over Spain equipped with a UHD decoder, by signing in or signing up through QR code to the website. In the next phase in coming months, new customers will be able to sign up for FlixOlé directly through the Movistar Plus+ platform.
The subscription service has a large library of Spanish movies including movies from directors such as José Luis Sáenz de Heredia, Benito Perojo, Jaime de Armiñán, Juan A. Bardem, Luis Buñuel, Luis Gª Berlanga and Mariano Ozores as well as more recent titles from the likes of Álex de la Iglesia, Icíar Bollaín, Alejandro Amenábar, Carlos Saura, Gracia Querejeta, Isabel Coixet, Daniel Sánchez Arévalo and Fernando León de Aranoa, alongside popular genres such as the quinqui cinema (cinema of delinquency) of the late ‘70s and ‘80s. The service also includes an extensive archive of RKO films including works by Orson Welles, Howard Hawks and Alfred Hitchcock as well as westerns and European films, including classics of Italian post-war cinema.
