This summer, Brits will be able to choose a new place to buy and download movies with the launch of European TVOD platform CHILI in the UK.
The only pan-European independent TVOD platform, the site has backing from five major shareholders: Warner Bros, Paramount Pictures, Viacom, Sony Pictures, and 20th Century Fox. CHILI has been available in the UK previously, but is now officially launching for British audiences, after its successful roll-out in Italy, where the platform has accrued 1.6 million registered customers. Since 2012, the entertainment hub has built up userbases in Germany, Poland and Austria.
CHILI is available on Smart TVs, Blu-rays, PCs, tablets and smartphones with a catalogue of thousands of digital films and TV series. It combines purchases and rentals with official film merchandise, physical DVDs/Blu-rays and exclusive content via a digital magazine called HotCorn.com, and an app called Cinetrailer, also offering a geo-localised movie theatrical’s show times.
Commenting on the UK launch, Founder Giorgio Tacchia, says: “We know movie fans don’t just watch films, they live them. That’s why at CHILI we don’t just stream movies and TV, we have created the ultimate viewing experience. Thanks to its unique offering, CHILI has become one of the most important movie and TV series on demand platform in Italy. We know that Brits are equally big fans of on demand content, and that love goes beyond just the screen. At CHILI we’re proud to offer all the latest movie premieres – from foreign art house to big screen blockbusters – alongside official merchandise, exclusive cinema tickets and a news hub, all with no subscription to get in the way.”
