BERLIN (dpa) – A new search engine from a Berlin startup is helping film fans to compare prices and dig up hard-to-find movies offered by the growing range of legal streaming services.
On JustWatch, users can also browse popular titles and see which services are streaming it, founder David Croye said.
Around 37,000 films are listed on the US version of the site. TV series will ultimately be added too.
Streaming video can be played directly from the Internet.
Services like Netflix or Amazon charge a monthly subscription fee for this.
JustWatch is free to users and will finance itself by being a marketing platform for the film industry, Croye said.
Its core market is the United States and the only other country where JustWatch is currently available is Germany, but Brazil is next in line and other countries are to be added shortly.
