Indonesian Ride-hailing Company Gojek Rolls out Video Streaming Services

Gojek, an Indonesian ride-hailing company, has rolled out a video streaming service on Thursday. The move by Gojek has placed them among the list of rivals such as Netflix, Hooq, and others to compete with. The name of the service is GoPlay.

The streaming service offers access to “hundreds of movies and TV shows” including snackable short clips and is currently launched in Indonesia only.

According to Edy Sulistyo, CEO of GoPlay, the new service only focuses on local content. The famous in-house production houses have helped the company to produce original contents: Base Entertainment, Kalyana Shira Films, and Wahana Kreator.

Moreover, the company has also collaborated with a few international studious to bring foreign content in the platform.

Currently, the new video streaming service is available in two plans: a full catalogue in HD for 89,000 ($6.27), and an IDR 99,000 ($7) pack where users can get access to GoFood delivery vouchers.

The Indonesian company like many other Southeast Asian companies is increasingly bulking up its ridesharing platform to enter additional categories. Currently, it offers a gaming and payments services platform. And now, the new streaming service will boost its portfolio.
