iflix raises $90M to expand its Netflix alternative to more emerging markets

iflix initially made its name in Southeast Asia where it specialized in a more local approach than the global streaming giants like Netflix and Amazon — in terms of programing, payment options and partnerships with local mobile operators — but has since pushed on beyond the region. The service is officially available in nine countries in Asia, most of which are in Southeast Asia, and parts of the Middle East and Africa via ‘iflix Arabia,’ a joint venture with Zain, the telco which covers seven countries across both regions. – Job Russell, TechCrunch http://ift.tt/2mSragd
