CANNES, France, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MIPTV -- Popcornflix™, the FREE streaming media service from New York City-based Screen Media Ventures, LLC, launched in France and Germany, giving film and TV lovers three easy ways to enjoy 100 percent free movies and shows in their native language: on the web, on iOS and Android mobile devices with the free Popcornflix app.
The company made the announcement at MIPTV in Cannes this week. Popcornflix is celebrating the launch with an interactive presence in Booth R7E66 where MIPTV attendees can preview the most popular films in the Popcornflix collection, including hundreds of free full-length movies featuring stars like Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts, Zack Galifianakis, Hayden Panetierre, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kevin Bacon. The company is also actively seeking new local content partners.
Popcornflix has already established a strong and growing audience around the world with successful launches of the brand and channels in English-speaking countries, including Canada, the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, Hong Kong and Singapore. The launch of its branded consumer-facing channels is a prequel to the imminent expansion of its sister platforms, Frightpix™, PopcornflixComedy™, PopcornflixKids™ and PopcornflixEspanol™, into these growing European markets.
As one of the largest independent suppliers of motion pictures to the international market, Popcornflix parent company Screen Media Ventures distributes films worldwide, providing high-performance titles with proven box-office and cast appeal to television stations, cable networks and home video outlets. The move to launch the Popcornflix consumer-facing branded channels is a natural evolution of the company's growing presence.
"Consumers are increasingly demanding the ease and convenience of watching their favorite movies and TV series on their own schedule and on their preferred device," said David Fannon, Executive Vice President at Popcornflix. "Our expansive content library and international reach makes Popcornflix uniquely positioned to deliver great content in multiple markets in localized languages. We're very eager to work with localized content providers to acquire new TV series content for our growing channels."
The Popcornflix family of streaming media channels are ad-supported platforms. Each film or program includes pre-roll, spot ads and banner ads that offer content and advertising partners a great opportunity to connect with a movie viewing audience.
