Incredible selection

The range of movies and content is vast. Lots out of the ordinary to view. Not a rehash of other streaming service fare.

Works great. Very good selection of movies

Minor trouble at first. But after contacting support, app is working great. Could use a few more classic (30’s, 40’s) movies w/ a few less foreign films. Guess that’s up to the studios.
