Magine TV acquires Nordic film streamer Plejmo

Tuesday 15 September 2015 | 12:37 CET | News
Magine TV said it has acquired the assets of film2home, which runs the Swedish film service Plejmo, the largest independent Nordic feature film streaming company. Plejmo provides streaming of films through transaction-based video on demand (TVoD), which means shortly after their cinema release, before they reach general SVoD distribution.
