Video: Sony Announces MUBI is Launching on PS3 This Week
Today Founder & CEO Efe Cakarel has announced via PlayStation Blog that MUBI is launching on PS3 this week.
To quote: We are launching MUBI on November 3rd and this is our trailer for it.
We are launching on November 3rd in UK, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, France, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg.
If you're in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, and Portugal, don't fret, we'll be launching in your territories next week. Australia and New Zealand we haven't forgotten you: we're announcing your date later this week.
From November 3rd you'll be able to download the MUBI from PlayStation Store. It's a free application so you may as well have a look! You'll find some of the most visionary independent, classic and foreign films to stream directly to your PS3.
Quentin Tarantino, Coen Brothers, Lars Von Trier, Gus Vant Sant, Jim Jarmusch, Roman Polanski, Wong Kar-Wai, David Lynch, Ang Lee, Jean-Luc Godard are all in there. Rent them for 7 days for £2.99/€3.59, or you can purchase an all-you-can-eat 30 day subscription for just £9.99/€12.99. Oh, and there will be some films for free too - films we think need to be discovered and that you need to tell your friends about.
Our curators have specially selected all our films because we think they represent the best of independent, classic and world cinema. We want to bring you films that are ripe for your discovery, films that make you think, films that make you cry, films you want to share with your friends and films you want to argue about with your friends! But, Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room...
Right... this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. I do wish we could chat longer, but I'm having an old friend for dinner. Bye.
This is way of topic, but why can't we get cool stuff here in the U.S. I know we have the netflix thing, but i want the cool dvr feature i saw a while back. I think it was released in Europe.
Ever since the psp i've seen add-on periferals that i really wanted but couldn't get, cause they wouldn't work here; like the 1seg tv tunner, and the GPS add-on. I know that when the 1seg came out in Japan, the US was still in analog, but now the US is digital so there is no excuse for us here in the US not to have the digital tv tuner.
Oh, and before anybody flames me about the tv tuner... I know the US has a different frequency than the Japan 1seg, but there has to be some sort of software workaround.
