Olyflix is an innovative and secure Virtual Theater where film enthusiasts can come and watch new releases as Premium-Video-On-Demand on a pay-per-view basis.

The Tamil Film “Eeswaran” was scheduled to be released outside India through Olyflix, as Premium-Video-On-Demand, on January 14th alongside the theater releases in India. This would have been the first time an Indian film ever reached a global audience at the same moment as the audience in India. Olyflix has already gotten overwhelming support from “Eeswaran” movie fans and actor Simbu fans all over the world for their efforts to make the movie available quickly to a global audience during the pandemic and theater closings.
Although there was no competition with Tamil Nadu Theater Owners and Olyflix, refuting the fears of piracy, Co-founder and CEO Suresh Raj said, “We are in agreement with the decision of Producer Balaji Kapa to address the request of Theater owners to postpone the release of the “Easwaran” film on our Olyflix platform.” Balaji Kapa said, “I am very thankful to Olyflix for understanding our situation and cooperating with us.” Suresh added “Our business model is to support both Producers of Indian films and local Theater owners. We want producers to maximize their income so they can continue investing in new films. We decided not to screen new releases in India to ensure our presence won’t impact the Indian theater business. Theater owners in India will benefit if theater releases the movies in India and simultaneously Olyflix releases them outside India. We have ensured anti-piracy efforts and the added publicity from our dedicated digital marketing team will benefit the movie.” Suresh continued, “We are also in conversation with Producers of many new films, including the new release “Master“, for release on Olyflix to reach the global audience.”
