Technology company Gojek officially added a video-on-demand service to its super-app platform on Thursday.

Developed over the course of a year and going on trial for a few months, GoPlay aims to provide a platform for local filmmakers and to make high quality Indonesian films more accessible, according to Gojek cofounder Kevin Aluwi during the launch in Jakarta as quoted by kompas.com.

Other than locally made films and series, GoPlay also features original content under the name GoPlay Originals, which, like Netflix Originals, is only available on the platform.
