Asian SVoD platform iflix has agreed a deal with The Walt Disney Company to show the studio’s films across South East Asia – just weeks after Disney revealed it will be pulling its content from Netflix. The deal would see the launch of a new ‘channels’ feature on the iflix service.
The content agreement will initially bring Marvel Studios movies including Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Thor: The Dark World Pixar Animation films such as Monsters Inc and Wall-E, and Disney classics including Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, The Jungle Book and Cars to Iflix users.
The deal will also extend to ABC Studios shows such as Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy and Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Disney Kids content such as Star Wars Rebels.
The partnership will cover all markets across South East Asia, including Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Brunei. The deal excludes Singapore, where iflix still remains unavailable.
Iflix chief content officer Sean Carey commented: “Disney has a story for every age. Iflix is committed to providing the best in entertainment from around the world and this SVoD partnership in the region will bring Disney brands and premium titles to our members across the region.
“We are pleased to partner with iflix to bring Disney content even closer to fans in southeast Asia”, said Amit Malhotra, general manager, media networks, The Walt Disney Company South East Asia. “Through the extensive library of content available on the new Channels feature, fans of all ages will have a unique access to their favourite stories and characters anytime they want.”
