Back in May, Sony announced MUBI, an online film library to break open the world of independent, international and classic cinema, and introduce PS3 owners to movies outside the mainstream. The service will be launching tomorrow in UK, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, France, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg.
From November 3rd you’ll be able to download the MUBI from PlayStation Store. It’s a free application so you may as well have a look. You’ll find some of the most visionary independent, classic and foreign films to stream directly to your PS3. Quentin Tarantino, Coen Brothers, Lars Von Trier, Gus Vant Sant, Jim Jarmusch, Roman Polanski, Wong Kar-Wai, David Lynch, Ang Lee, Jean-Luc Godard are all in there.
Rent them for 7 days for £2.99/€3.59, or you can purchase an all-you-can-eat 30 day subscription for just £9.99/€12.99. Oh, and there will be some films for free too.
Next week, the service will be expanded to additional territories including Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, and Portugal, and Australia and New Zealand will be included at a later date.
