26 September 2016
ICFLIX, the Middle East and North Africa’s leading internet streaming service, has partnered with SLA Digital to bring Direct Operator Billing to more customers in the Middle East.
Founded in 2013, ICFLIX is a Middle Eastern and North African streaming and VoD platform that provides customers access to the best of Jazwood (Arabic), Hollywood and Bollywood content, including the largest library of Arabic movies and TV shows available online alongside kids entertainment and documentaries.
The service is available in English, Arabic and French and can be accessed worldwide for Jazwood and Bollywood content whereas Hollywood content is only available in the MENA market.
Direct Operator Billing will allow both prepaid and post-paid users the ability to subscribe and access ICFLIX’s library of content for a monthly, weekly or daily fee depending on the user’s preference. The transaction is simply added to the customer’s bill or deducted from their prepaid credit.

We focus on ensuring that our customers can receive our content with ease and without compromising on quality. Direct Operator Billing offers our customers a seamless and secure payment solution that does not require credit card or bank account information to make a purchase.”
SLA Digital will provide ICFLIX with initial connectivity to Zain’s mobile operators in the Middle East over the coming months.
