Immerse yourself in cinema at home with MUBI for PlayStation®3

Discover, watch and share a new world of film masterpieces with MUBI, the new PlayStation®3 service that turns your TV into an on-demand international cinema

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe [SCEE] has announced a partnership with leading online film library MUBI, to bring to PlayStation®3 (PS3TM) a new service that will break open the world of independent, international and classic cinema, and introduce PS3 owners to movies outside the mainstream. MUBI will be a free, downloadable application that gives PS3 owners the key to the ever-expanding film library of MUBI - an incredible online ‘cinemateque' for movie lovers, packed to the rafters with acclaimed independent, foreign and classic films, and with exclusive content including:

  • - Agnès Varda's entire body of work - the first time that the complete work of such an established filmmaker will have been available to watch globally on the internet.
  • - Revolución, the amazing portmanteau film from the cream of Mexican directors, which will have its Home Entertainment debut on MUBI on the anniversary of the Mexican Revolution, ahead of its worldwide DVD release
  • - Films including Ki-young Kim's The Housemaid, Metin Erksan's Dry Summer and Claire Denis' Towards Mathilde, that are otherwise unavailable to watch at home

From this Autumn, PS3 users in UK, Ireland, France, Italy, Iberia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux, Nordic countries, Australia and NZ will have access to a unique treasure trove of celluloid curated by experts - so that even non-experts can enjoy what might otherwise take a lifetime to discover.  MUBI will initially offer between 350-500 films from directors from Audiard to Zeferelli; and they're all going to be available to stream directly to your PS3. You'll get to discover movies you never dreamed about, watch your choice of films whenever you like, and talk about the ones you love with your friends.


The MUBI application will be free to download from PlayStation®Store. Once downloaded, users simply open it up and start watching. The library will include festival gems, classics, award-winning independent releases and avant garde art-house masterpieces. Users will discover the work of world-famous directors like the Coen Brothers and Tarantino alongside Latin American directors and restored shorts from the most obscure of archives. But the key will be quality: MUBI will offer films from the most visionary directors and creative masterminds on the planet, their defining trait being that nothing will get into the MUBI library that hasn't been hailed a classic by the film community.

There will be free-to-watch movies alongside pay-per-view movies that users can rent for a week as well as an all-you-can-watch monthly subscription. The service will offer exclusive online premieres, Oscar-winners, Palme D'Or winners, collaborations with international film festivals, and so many other choices users might not know where to start. And that's where the MUBI community comes in, a forum in which discerning film fans can discuss, swap tips and make recommendations, share their thoughts, and perhaps even interact with some of their idols who are also members, but also read up on director biogs, view film synopses and watch trailers.


The key rights holders whose libraries form the basis of the MUBI catalogue are Celluloid Dreams, Criterion Collection, Costa Films (Latin America), Artificial Eye (UK), Bac Films (France), Cinéart (Belgium and Netherlands), Hopscotch (Australia), and World Cinema Foundation, which was founded by Martin Scorsese, and is dedicated to preserving and restoring neglected films from around the world.


Andrew House welcomed MUBI to PlayStation® adding: "PlayStation® is about great entertainment, from games to content, delivered straight to the living room or enjoyed on the go.  Today this ranges from VidZone, the free on demand music service, through to PlayTV where you can watch, record and rewind live TV at your leisure.  MUBI offers the perfect independent counterpoise to our box-office blockbuster, hi-def, video delivery service, catering for the tastes of an ever broader customer base.  Add in PS3's DVD and Blu-ray disc player and we have the perfect ticket for film lovers."


Joining SCEE President Andrew House in Cannes at the unveiling of the new service, MUBI founder Efe Çakarel said:  "MUBI is the fastest growing online destination for lovers of independent, foreign and classic film - and it is amazing how many people that covers! Our partnership with PlayStation® brings online cinema to TV screens in homes around the world giving PlayStation® owners a whole new world of entertainment to explore."


"MUBI provides a unique opportunity that allows filmmakers to deliver content directly to their audience," said Celluloid Dreams and MUBI Europe President Hengameh Panahi. "What this means for content providers like Celluloid Dreams is that we can take risks on films that might not otherwise find an outlet, knowing that we have this new distribution channel in place."


This is cinema for cinema lovers who know it, and for ones who just don't know it yet - a movie service that takes you beyond the mainstream and deep into thousands of views of our world through different lenses - all streamed straight to your PS3 to turn your living room into a cinema that never closes and never gets old. MUBI for PS3 is arriving later this year - prepare to dim your lights and enjoy the main feature.
