    From what I have seen so far, seem a brilliant service for arthousr, independent or foreign films, being Deaf and subtitles inclusion in MUBI makes this for me the most accessible film service bar none.

    Movies rentals on PS3 and X360 are no good without subtitles and so here is like finally! Something that's can be a real option to view. So my warmest congratulations to Sony for bringing MUBI alongside other video viewing options already or will be available.

    Also the most popular film on the service is a Charlie Chaplin film (!) which you shouldn't even need subtitles for. WIN WIN

    Is there a time traveler in it?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I don't know. I decided not to pay 2.99 to watch it.

    The picture quality is pathetic... or have I got something misconfigured?

    After watching blurays for over a year, the drop in image quality when using Mubi is downright offensive.

    Anybody managed to get a decent picture from the service or do I need to get used to VHS quality films once again ;)

    I only watched Alice and the quality was fine, albeit for a film made in 1902. lol.

    i'm such a techy, posting from my ps3 about an online movie streaming service.

    the difference between watch and discover is staggering. is that all down to licensing?

    i actually recognise some of the classics listed under discover!

    not interested in foreign language movies.

    on iplayer you can watch the fantastic blade runner, for free!

    interface is clear and playback quality good over wireless, much like iplayer. no information on resolution or aspect ratio though.

    Don't forget that if you pay for your tv license, you're paying for the iPlayer - it's not free.

    i don't have a license as i have no aerial or signal.

    it's a broadcast license in any case, not a bbc license!

    at least that's what i've been lead to believe.

    That's fair enough - the point is that millions of people do pay a license fee, and money from that is what makes the iPlayer possible.

    iPlayer's in a weird state where it's free, but it's also paid for without a lot of people recognising the fact. Thus, it's a surprisingly awesome 'free' service :)

    Is anybody else having problems with the picture stuttering? It happends every two seconds or so, picture stops for very short time, not necesseray visible if not much is happnengin, but very clear when panning. It's not because of bandwith.

    PS3 is connected with HDMI to projector, if that's relevant.

    God, this app is annoying. There seems to be no way to filter out movies that aren't available and the selection that is, is piss poor.

    I'd like to subscribe...I really would but it's shit really.

    Is there not an 'available in your region' option or did I imagine it?

    Better than nothing I suppose but English speaking countries should have Netflix IMO.

    The whole world should have Netflix, but unfortunately most non-UK/US countries are living in the stone age because of individually negotiated licenses.

    In Denmark there are 519 movies available, 4 of them free - the rest blatantly overpriced.

    How do they plan on making this a success?
  • Deleted user 30 November 2010 12:55:18
    I'm pretty pleased at the fact I watched Battleship Potemkin.

    By subscribing monthly you pay a flat fee and watch as much as you like, isn't it? Paying for individual films would be daft.

    Any of the movies I want to watch are available to rent in any bricks and mortar rental outlet but they aren't available here. There's about 500 movies available from a supposed library of 18,000. It's just a bit rubbish really. I was ready to sub until I saw the paltry amount on offer, most of which is shite.

    August Villaronga's El mar?

    An intensely morbid love story about fascist executions, disease, bloody animal abuse and violent homoeroticism.

    Maybe not.

    The divide and conquer principle run in most EU countries since the dark ages of VHS rentals is absolutely horrid.
