Amazon Prime has added international SVoD service Alchemiya to its streaming roster, with broadcast content specialist Ostmodern delivering the design and technical implementation of the service. Alchemiya was built using Ostmodern’s Skylark API and is the latest international service to be added to Amazon Channels in the US, joining more than 70 major channels including HBO, Starz, and Comedy Central.
Alchemiya is available as an ‘add-on’ to Amazon Prime’s 49.5 million US subscribers through Amazon Channels. It gives viewers access to the latest content celebrating arts, culture, history, music, fashion, food, and travel from across the Muslim world.
“We wanted to offer the very best global Muslim content through a platform that stood out from the crowd. What we ended up with had to be easy for our editorial teams to manage, and the entire platform had to be delivered in a short space of time,” said Navid Akhtar, CEO and Founder at Alchemiya. “We were impressed with Ostmodern’s previous work and knew that the team would be able to build us a flexible product in just a couple of months.”
