Azerbaijani films to be broadcast in foreign online cinemas
Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 12
By Huseyn Valiyev – Trend:
Azerbaijani films will be broadcast at popular foreign online cinemas, MyVideo Project Manager Ali Aliyev told Trend.
"Earlier, we launched a joint project of KATV1 and Azercell companies - www.kinoserial.az platform in Azerbaijan, through which high-quality video content of Russian partner Amediateka can be viewed through computers, tablet computers and smartphones,” he said.
“At the next stage of this project development, we plan to present the content of leading producers, translated into the Azerbaijani language,” he said. “We plan to launch several similar projects with other local mobile operators," Aliyev said.
Nowadays, people are more using laptops, tablet computers and smartphones to access video content.
"Everything being implemented in Azerbaijan corresponds to the world trends,” he said. “However, we do not have yet Netflix and Amazon PrimeVideo projects, when Internet platforms produce content themselves. But I think that over the next five years we will see such projects in Azerbaijan.”
“For example, the TV series were created and launched exclusively for viewing over the Internet in neighboring Turkey and became extremely popular,” he said. “The issue of monetizing content is relevant in Azerbaijan. I think in a while we will pay for Internet content. Internet can give a new impetus to the national film industry as this segment has huge financial potential.”
