Miramax streaming chunk of library on Facebook


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Studios have explored streaming movies on Facebook. Warner Bros. blasted the social networking tool with their “The Dark Knight” while Paramount and Universal has dipped their to in the water. But Miramax is about to make a major splash with the largest offering of titles in the short history of movie streaming.

PaidContent reports that the Miramax eXperience is going to make 20 titles available to rent in the U.S., with 10 being made available in the U.K. and Turkey. The report goes on to say that France and Germany will have access to these titles in the near future.

“Chicago,” “Cold Mountain,” and “Good Will Hunting” are among the first titles added in the first wave of programming, which also includes “Pulp Fiction” and “No Country for Old Men.”

“We wanted to fish where the fish are,” explained Miramax CEO Mike Lang. “We could have created the most robust Miramax.com in the world and other than my family members, who would be there?”

But the app doesn’t end with streaming. The report says the Miramax eXperience “includes a game that allows people to cast friends in various roles of Miramax movies; as they play, they can unlock bonus content that’s not otherwise visible.”
