We’re ecstatic to announce a new partnership with JustWatch, the most comprehensive streaming search engine on the internet. For our members, this means a number of positive changes that will help you find new content to watch on the services you subscribe to. Here’s a look at what’s new:
Improved streaming data
Our previous approach to streaming availability was largely restricted to the US market, and relied on search to match titles between us and our supplier, a process that often led to incorrect or misleading data. Other complicating factors meant it could sometimes take weeks to receive updates when titles arrived on, or departed from, individual services. No more!
JustWatch has accurate streaming data for services in more than 30 countries, and—thanks to a shared ID space and a superior transfer method—we’ll receive complete daily updates to keep everything in sync. In the US market, for example, JustWatch monitors well over 100 streaming services, including:
- Amazon Video (and Prime Video)
- Apple iTunes
- Criterion Channel
- Fandango Now
- Google Play Movies
- HBO Now (and Go)
- Microsoft Movies
- Tribeca Shortlist
- YouTube (including free and Premium)
- and dozens more…
A new availability guide
The data we receive from JustWatch powers a new modal popup on the film pages of our mobile and desktop websites, displaying all known streaming providers for each title.
