Flix Premiere, the world’s first online cinema, is now available on Roku streaming devices in the US and UK. It is part of the company’s strategy to make Flix Premiere movies widely available on the over-the-top (OTT) device of consumers’ choice. The Roku launch comes on the heels of Flix Premiere’s September launch on Apple TV.
Consumers are flocking to OTT devices to watch movies and exclusive behind-the-scenes content online. Currently, four out of every ten households in the US own an OTT streaming device, and Roku dominates almost 50 percent of the US OTT television market, based on comScore. Similarly, consumers in the UK turn to streaming devices for content. Keeping with the growing popularity of online streaming in the UK, earlier this year, BAFTA opened up submissions for movies that debut online, changing the previous requirement that a movie had to make a theater debut.
“As we enter 2017, most movie watching will be through apps and the internet. The global video streaming market is set to double in size, and Roku is the streaming device of choice in millions of households,” said Martin Warner, founder and CEO of Flix Premiere. “By tapping into the broad spectrum of streaming devices, we can achieve our goal of giving broad access to world-class films that have wowed critics and film festival audiences.”
Flix Premiere is also available online across every browser, and as an iOS app and Android app across a full range of mobile devices, providing consumers access to an exclusive selection of world-class films curated from top international film festivals such as Cannes and Sundance. A release on Amazon Fire Stick is planned by the end of the year.
Flix Premiere also just launched a welcome program for movie fans to explore the Flix Premiere theater. First time viewers can watch one Flix Premiere movie for free upon signing up.
