Filmzie, the free movie streaming and social platform, today announces its latest integration deal with leading TV service provider Netgem TV, the end-to-end TV service powering the UK’s growing community of “Altnets” and challenger Internet Service Providers (ISPs). This integration is a further development in a movement away from the UK’s reliance on traditional physical broadband infrastructure and towards more agile companies.
The deal allows homes with a Netgem TV box or connected TV to access the full slate of Filmzie series and films for free. This includes recently launched ISP branded services such as Origin TV and Community Fibre TV.
The Netgem TV platform will promote Filmzie’s content through its streaming app but also via multiple dynamic areas from the Netgem User Interface, be it carousels, editorialised sections, and smart notifications both on big screen and mobile.
Netgem is committed to offering its customers an innovative platform where the best of Ad-based Video-on-Demand (AVoD) and Broadcaster Video-on-Demand (BVoD) is mixed with premium services, such as Amazon Prime and live sports, at an affordable and inclusive price.
Filmzie’s Advertising-based Video on Demand (AVoD) model means all the films in its catalogue are just a click away and are totally free to watch. The streaming platform will be available on all Netgem-supported TVs with no need to download any applications or additional software.
The launch follows Filmzie’s recent move in to streaming hit TV series, after acquiring its first slate of shows from All3Media International – including Jack Whitehall-led comedy favourite Fresh Meat, and classic UK teen series Skins.
These shows will sit on the Filmzie platform with the streamer’s growing catalogue of films and series from major studios and indie producers. These titles include Taika Waititi’s cult favourite What We Do in The Shadows, legendary Korean director Park Chan Wook’s Lady Vengeance and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, and Maniac, starring Elijah Wood.
Filmzie is also available as a Fire TV and Android TV app, on Samsung Smart TVs as a linear channel, or as iOS and Android mobile apps. The service is structured around carefully curated themes, to help optimise discoverability and introduce ‘new’ titles to curious audiences.

What We Do in the Shadows
Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance
