Flicks commercial director Dan Michelle said: “The new offering builds on Flicks’ long-running service as a cinema, movies and streaming guide, as it helps solve the universal pain-point of not knowing what to watch and where to watch it.
“The partnership (with beIN) is set to run for an initial three months, from September to November, to maximise on World Cup timings.
“Having recently become available in New Zealand as a standalone service, beIN is perfectly positioned to partner the launch and help Australian and Kiwi sports fans discover where they can watch the content they love.
“By expanding our guide to include sports viewing information, we’ll be reaching a new demographic of users.”
“Through beIN, this includes content from a range of different sporting codes, including UEFA Champions League and Europa League, among other offerings.
“New Zealanders and Australians are known for their love of sport and research into our users’ habits has consistently shown a cross-over interest between the movies and sport. By expanding our guide to include sports viewing information, we’ll be reaching a new demographic of users, and help them discover and stay up to date with the content they love.
“When our users are deciding what to do on a Friday night, they’re often choosing between a night out at the cinema or staying in.
“If they’re staying in, it’s a choice between a show or watching a game.
