Mavshack –
Filipino Streaming Service


We receive movies from our respective partners through various forms of transfer, ranging from physical hard drive to accelerated download. The system then knows which audio and video channels to use and how. The material is coded to work on all devices and then sent to the editors for quality control and subtitle syncing. Then packing takes place to the various units in order to last but not least be published in the platform.


The group’s storage subcontractors (Google Cloud Storage and Amazon S3) then deliver the material to our streaming and distribution subcontractor (Akamai). CDN cache stores movies on Edge servers that are close to the viewer and thus allows the movies, even in high bandwidth, to be delivered without interruption or buffering.


The platform is a proprietary product developed within the group and in 2017 it was rebuilt from the ground up and is today completely serverless in its set. The platform is based on NodeJS basically and today runs in Amazon’s Lambda with their API gateway in front. Here also Akamai joins and speeds up and secures the APIs too.

Payment systems

Mavshack has several payment solutions including Stripe, PayPal and Direct Carrier Billing (DCB) as payment gateways. The system is designed to handle all currencies around the world.

Direct Carrier Billing is developed in-house together with the respective telco in the respective countries (mostly in the Middle East)
