Now available to over one billion consumers across 24 territories throughout Asia, the Middle East and Africa, iflix has established itself as the clear market leader in video streaming.

iflix, the world’s leading entertainment service for emerging markets, is thrilled to share its latest milestone – 10 billion minutes streamed across its platform in 2017.

The achievement, equivalent to more than 19,000 years of content streamed, marks an incredible uptake in user engagement, with cumulative viewing minutes up well over 400% from three billion total minutes streamed at the end of 2016. iflix also maintains one of the highest active mobile viewing durations of any service globally, with an average of 2.5-2.75 hours per session.

The company’s localized content strategy focusing on first-run local movies direct from cinema and a bold slate of original programming has shown the largest gains in viewership, with its local and regional offerings and hyper-local Originals accounting for a substantial portion of its viewership numbers.
