Muvi is a discovery platform for entertainment content (movies, TV and Internet video). It collects data about user’s taste and suggests him precisely the content that he will like.
Turn on the TV (or tablet, smartphone), it starts playing the content of your choice automatically based on your interest, time and place. This is the concept of Muvi.
Proprietary discovery engine analyzes 100+ factors (actor, director, genre, year etc...) to recommend personalized choices to viewers. It is built using Big Data and machine learning technologies.
We have verified that it works. The number of movies users adding to their ‘wanna see’ queue increased by 1000% after rolling out the discovery engine.
We knew each other for a long time (8+ years), are from the same city in India. We always wanted to build something together, were just looking for the right idea to work together.

We were once picking a movie to watch. We browsed from TV, DVR, Netflix, Redbox, and spent time researching movies on IMDB and RottenTomatoes. We spent 30 mins just to pick which movie to watch.
Then we realized that the number of options available to watch has increased exponentially. Before, we had only two options, TV or theater. Now, we have myriad of options – TV, Theater, DVR, Netflix, YouTube, Redbox etc.. PLUS the number of movies available in these options have increased exponentially.
