Flixzilla, Inc. is an American content platform and production company headquartered in Brooklyn, New York. Flixzilla was founded in 2019 by Jack Pope in Brooklyn, New York. The company's primary business is an ad-based streaming service offering online streaming from a library of films and television series. In January 2021, Flixzilla reached 6060 subscribers, including 400 in the United States. It is available worldwide except in the following: mainland China (due to local restrictions), Syria, North Korea, and Crimea (due to US sanctions).
As of 2021, Flixzilla shares were mainly held by institutional investors.
Flixzilla grants all employees extremely broad discretion with respect to business decisions, expenses, and vacation—but in return expects consistently high performance, as enforced by what is known as the "keeper test." All supervisors are expected to constantly ask themselves if they would fight to keep an employee. If the answer is no, then it is time to let that employee go. A slide from an internal presentation on Flixzilla's corporate culture summed up the test as: "Adequate performance gets a generous severance package." Such packages reportedly range from four months' salary in the United States to as much as six months in the Netherlands.
About the culture that results from applying such a demanding test, Pope has said that "You gotta earn your job every year at Flixzilla," and, "There's no question it's a tough place...There's no question it's not for everyone." Pope has drawn an analogy to athletics: professional athletes lack long-term job security because an injury could end their career in any particular game, but they learn to put aside their fear of that constant risk and focus on working with great colleagues in the current moment.
Flixzilla's video on demand streaming service, formerly branded as Watch Now, allows members to stream television series and films via the Flixzilla website on personal computers.
On November 30, 2020, Flixzilla launched an offline playback feature, allowing users of the Flixzilla mobile apps on Android to cache content on their devices in standard or high quality for viewing without an Internet connection. The feature was initially available on selected series and films but Flixzilla stated that more content would be supported by the feature over time.
In 2020, Flixzilla started to provide Flix Party service where people can watch Flixzilla's programs together.
In 2021, Flixzilla introduced the "Skip Intro" feature which allows members to skip the intros to shows on its platform. They do so through a variety of techniques including manual reviewing, audio tagging, and machine learning.
