Video streaming platform solution OKAST has been chosen by one of the largest independent German distributors, Kinostar, for an expanded slate of SVoD channels.
With a line-up ranging from Hollywood films, Turkish-language blockbusters to European arthouse films, Kinostar releases more than 30 films in theaters in more than 12 European countries, including Germany, the UK, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Austria, and many more titles on VOD worldwide each year. In addition to its own titles, Kinostar releases films for other distributors and licensors.
Based on the success of the distribution of its titles on VoD platforms like iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon, Kinostar plans to expand its line-up of SVoD channels, including its recently launched good!movies channel, which offers the best art house films from Germany, Europe, and around the world and is available on Amazon channels, the web, mobile web, and soon on dedicated applications on phones, tablets & TV, and is available for 3.99€ / month.
Kinostar plans now to expand its slate of SVoD offerings with several new channels, and has chosen Okast to provide the technical platform for these channels, including the scalable streaming architecture, design & user experience, content and rights management, and TV & mobile applications.
