FILMZIE is to be made available as a channel on Rakuten TV in the UK.
The integration will be painless – no software or hardware changes will be required to pick up the channel.
For film aficionados and the casual viewer alike, FILMZIE boasts a wide range of titles from timeless classics to new releases from both major studios and indie producers.
The offering includes; Taika Waititi’s cult favourite What We Do in The Shadows, legendary Korean director Park Chan Wook’s Lady Vengeance and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, and Deception, which features the Oscar-winning Geoffrey Rush.
“Launching as a linear channel on Rakuten TV follows the strong success we have had in building an engaged audience of film and TV lovers on our streaming platform,” notes Matej Boda, FILMZIE’s CEO.
Serving as more than just a film library, FILMZIE allows its viewers to build communities for discovering, discussing, and reviewing movies.
Its launch on Rakuten TV is part of a multi-market international roll-out. Additional territories and platforms, with localised catalogues will be announced throughout the year.
