iflix, Southeast Asia’s top internet TV service, and Indosat Ooredoo, one of Indonesia’s biggest telecommunications and network providers, have announced a landmark strategic partnership. The partnership will see iflix’s extensive content library made accessible to Indosat Ooredoo customers.
Select Indosat Ooredoo premium mobile and fibre broadband (GIG) customers will be able to enjoy iflix services, seamlessly bundled with their existing telco plans, free of charge. This is similar to what iflix has done with Malaysian telcos like Celcom, Digi, TM and Maxis.
To activate iflix, eligible subscribers need to simply register at iflix.com or download the iflix app. They will be able to enjoy unlimited movies or shows on the go, on multiple devices – TV, smartphone, notebook, desktop or tablet.
Additionally, customers will also be able to watch favourite movies offline with iflix’s ‘Download and Watch Offline’ feature.
iflix currently serves over 1 million customers across Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines.
On a separate note, iflix has announced a major hire – telco and media expert David Goldstein, who is now iflix’s Head of Asia.
He brings over 20 years’ experience in media, pay TV, telco and IT industries to the rapidly growing internet TV services leader. He’s held senior executive positions with leading media/telecommunication operators and IT solutions providers including Emtek Group, SCTV, Nexmedia, Telstra, Swisscom, Digi, New World Mobility, TIW, Schlumberger and Khazanah Nasional.
