Originally adopting a freemium model, blackpills moved to Subscription Video-on-Demand and distribution by operators in 2019.

To do so, blackpills selected Bee product. The cloud video platform by Alpha Networks allows metadata ingestion through Tucano software and standard drivers for content ingestion and processing.

Alpha Networks also provides its white-label application with advanced design system, perfectly matching blackpills’ identity.

Gecko, the well renowned standard application by Alpha Networks’ design studio easily adapts to any brands’ guidelines. It is ready to deploy on Bee platform, enabling content producers and operators to quickly launch their solution on the market.

The cherry on the cake of Alpha Networks’ offering is content animation functionality, the easy-to-use, collaborative tool to handle content editing and enhance the publication on the front-end with captivating designs.

We have selected Alpha Networks as the exclusive technology partner for the deployment of our service because we were looking for a reliable partner to support us in this new challenge. Our new distribution strategy is ambitious and operators’ workflow can be complex: Alpha Networks made it simple and provided us with a very premium-quality platform offering enriched user experience.
