French legal VOD platform Imineo has hailed the Megaupload closure as it announced traffic and sales up 50% since the closure last week.
“Deprived with films and series and now informed about the illicit use of that kind of online-file-sharing platforms, internauts now turn massively towards legal offers,” the French website proclaimed.
Run by Richard Huin, this legal download platform offers a selection of 11,000 titles including exclusivities coming from 300 producers, independent content suppliers and big groups such as Gaumont, Pathé, France Télévisions, Dupuis, EuropaCorp, M6 Films, Bac Films.
Until now, Imineo was suffering from what it called “unfair competition coming from Megaupload that deprived it with a large share of its audience”.
