French service provider Free is launching a new AVOD service, stocking it with domestic shows as well as programming from the US and the UK.
OQEE Ciné will be free for existing Freebox subscribers and offers a mix of blockbuster movies, cult series, comedies, thrilllers, cartoons and drama.
Free, the consumer-facing brand of Iliad Telecom, said that the service would be the first in France to offer such a large combined movies and series offering without an additional fee.
Recent US series such as StartUp and Taken, as well as A Very English Scandal from the UK’s BBC, will be available alongside kids movies such as Muppets From Space, Labyrinth, Tintin and Stuart Little 2.
Movies range from Limitless, xXx and Godzilla, to Hellboy and Kursk, as well as older titles such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Dracula and Last of the Mohicans.
The movie line-up also includes popular French comedies Halal Police d’Etat and Les Gorilles, while French series available include Damages and Drôles de Dames.
Freebox subscribers will be able to access OQEE Ciné direct from their set-tops on the TV and on their mobile devices via Free’s existing dedicated TV app, OQEE by Free.
OQEE is the name used by Free for the revamped version of its TV service launched two years ago. Free’s TV subscribers are able to access their full range of live channels, catch-up TV and VOD services via the same app.
