MUBI streaming film app now on Samsung Smart TVs

Video-on-demand service MUBI is now available as an app on Samsung Smart TVs and Smart Blu-ray players.

Users can watch an assortment of films which are hand-picked by MUBI editors. There are currently 30 films to choose from, but the library is updated daily. Titles so far include The Fifth Element, Oldboy and Slumdog Millionaire.

A subscription service, MUBI costs £2.99 a month for unlimited streaming access. So decent value compared to rival services, provided you like the taste of the MUBI editors...

Guy Kinnell, Head of TV and AV at Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland, said: "The addition of MUBI to the Samsung Smart Hub not only strengthens our film offering but provides our customers with even more variety, choice and entertainment for their viewing.

"From a carefully curated collection of film classics and fan favourites, customers will be guaranteed the very best of cinema straight into the living room."

Samsung Smart TV apps already include Spotify, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, as well as a range of catch-up TV services such as BBC iPlayer.

Max is a staff writer for What Hi-Fi?'s sister site, TechRadar, in Australia. But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
