The new site developed by the MPAA allows users to find out what streaming services offer specific titles.
The MPAA has launched a new streaming video search engine called WhereToWatch. The site culls through various streaming platforms like Netflix, Hulu, and iTunes, letting customers know how they can rent or buy digital and physical copies of numerous titles.
After searching for and selecting a specific film or TV show, the site provides a listing of different services that offer the title for digital purchase or rental, along with pricing and links. Likewise, the tool also includes information and links about DVD, Blu-ray, and theater availability. Currently, the site offers results for the following services: Amazon, iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, Crackle, Flixster, Paramount Movies, Bravo Now, CNBC Full Episodes, E! Now, Esquire TV Now, Oxygen Now, Sprout Now, Syfy Now, ABC, ABC Family, Disney Movies Anywhere, Vudu, Xbox Video, Sundance Now, SnagFilms, Fandor, Wolfe on Demand, Target Ticket, Movies On Demand, Reelhouse, and IndieFlix.
WhereToWatch.com is still listed as a beta, and support for more titles and services will be added as the website continues to grow.
