DUBAI, UAE, January 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Viewers across the Middle East and North Africa, watch out - the pirates are coming for your computer screens. Black Sails, the newest series from production giant Starz, will be available to ICFLIX members weekly from the 27th of January, only two days after it's US premiere. A few weeks later, the second season of popular series Vikings will also premiere exclusively on the site.
ICFLIX [pronounced I-see-flix], the first subscription based online streaming service in MENA, has secured exclusive rights in the region to Hollywood producer Michael Bay's first venture into television. Bay is known for producing action-packed blockbusters, like the Transformers trilogy, and is expected to bring the same thrills to Black Sails.
Set in 1715, the Golden Age of Piracy, Black Sails takes place on New Providence Island, where Captain Flint (played by Toby Stephens) is the most feared of all the lawless pirate captains. After the British Navy returns to reclaim their land and exterminate his crew, Flint allies with Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New), the daughter of a local tycoon and their battle for survival begins.
For only $7.99 per month, members have unlimited access to Black Sails and the entire ICFLIX library of Hollywood, Bollywood and Jazwood (Arabic content) productions, including other Starz hits like Spartacus and Magic City. Towards the end of February, viewers will also have the second season of Vikings to keep up with, a much awaited continuation of the tale of legendary chief Ragnar Lodbrok, his crew and family, and their quest of raiding and exploring foreign lands.
