Amazon Prime has added international SVoD service Alchemiya to its streaming roster, with broadcast content specialist Ostmodern delivering the design and technical implementation of the service.
Alchemiya was built using Ostmodern’s Skylark API and is the latest international service to be added to Amazon Channels, joining more than 70 major broadcasters including HBO, Starz, and Comedy Central.
The addition of Alchemiya gives viewers access to the latest content celebrating arts, culture, history, music, fashion, food, and travel from across the Muslim world.
Skylark, Ostmodern’s flagship technology, was used as the framework for Alchemiya’s back-end and CMS. It offers a flexible development environment that’s centred on creating a unique front-end user experience:
“We wanted to offer the very best global Muslim content through a platform that stood out from the crowd. What we ended up with had to be easy for our editorial teams to manage, and the entire platform had to be delivered in a short space of time,” said Navid Akhtar, CEO and founder, Alchemiya.
Tom Williams, CEO, Ostmodern (pictured), added: “Our ethos is to put the curator at the centre of the VoD service we design, making it easy for them to help their viewers find content that’s important. This is especially true for products like Alchemiya, and it’s great to see Skylark making this a reality by putting their platform in front of millions of new viewers on Amazon Prime.”
