The streaming platform is now available on Android smartphones and tablets.
Tribeca and Lionsgate have expanded support for Tribeca Shortlist to Android devices. The service is also available on Roku players (Roku 4, Roku 3, and Roku 2), Roku TV models, the Amazon Fire TV, iPhones, iPads, PC, Mac, and Apple TV.
"Releasing our Android app is an important touchstone in our platform expansion plan," said Tribeca Shortlist President, Jeff Bronikowski. "We are excited to empower the large and enthusiastic Android user community to experience the service’s Shortlists and quality film selection on their big screens through Google Cast or on the go by downloading it to their Android mobile devices and tablets."
The service features a library of more than 150 critically acclaimed titles that have been personally selected by various industry experts, filmmakers, and actors. These "Shortlister" curators also provide personal insights into their picks to help guide viewers through their recommendations. The collection is refreshed every month with a turnover of about 50 movies, offering films from Lionsgate, Tribeca Enterprises, and other major studios and independent sources. Current titles include 'Amelie,' 'The English Patient,' and 'The Great Escape.' In addition to traditional streaming, the platform also offers an offline viewing and download option for Android and iOS based tablets or phones.
Tribeca Shortlist is now available through the Google Play Store. The Android apps also include support for TV streaming from Google Cast devices. The current subscription fee is $5 per month and new customers who sign up for six months of the service for $30 at www.tribecashortlist.com/chromecast can receive a free Chromecast from now through the end of June.
