Cinema mobile app development
The film industry is one of the main pillars of entertainment business. Cinemas earn a lot on showing the hottest products’ premieres, as well as old and well-known films. Cinemas are a good source of profit, both for their owners and for the studios themselves.
With the development of technology, business is moving to the Internet. This also applies to cinemas. Movie app companies offer users popular films for money or for free. Websites with free movies may be monetized with advertisements.
Creating your own online cinema with legal content can become a very successful project in the future. A mobile movie app development for Android or iOS will be a perfect assistant for viewing movies comfortably. The KATASIS movie app company professionally develops applications for online cinemas.
What is a mobile cinema application to users:
- updated information about movies;
- information on film distribution;
- opportunity of booking and buying tickets for a film show.
What is the online cinema industry today?
Creating online cinemas initially implied paid movie screenings on the Internet in real time. The user could stop and resume broadcasting, adjust the volume level and use the "rewind" function at any time. In the past, there were illegal products, which were forbidden. As online video format was gaining more and more popularity among Internet users, the system has changed and became legal.
Nowadays, there are several constantly operating cinemas, which get about 10,000 views a month.
On average, watching a movie costs from 1-10$, and this includes the payment to the copyright owner. The owner of a digital cinema hall makes an open profit and does not pay for the rent, work of staff, equipment maintenance and community facilities. The only task is to collect and periodically replenish your film collection in order to retain existing customers and attract new ones. This is achieved through cooperation with copyright holders for a particular film or cartoon. In fact, they are interested as well, as they want their movies to be watched by everyone who is able to pay a nominal fee for viewing a unique, interesting and rare video without leaving their homes.
However, your main income source is advertising on your online cinema website.
KATASIS will give you a unique opportunity to become the owner of such a cinema and get a permanent, independent income. We offer you top-level movie app development services.
