Why streaming and cinema on one platform?

  • Because almost everyone who loves the cinema is streaming today and the biggest streaming fans are still the most loyal cinema audience.
  • Because we constantly missed many of the best films in the cinema and never found them at Netflix & Co.
  • Because there is always too much of everything in the cinema and streaming jungle and we need overview and class instead of mass.


  • Our free, ad-supported cinema guide creates order and bundles practical tools for quickly choosing the right film.
  • Our streaming library separates the wheat from the chaff and contains only what we think is worth a single rental, whether art house or mainstream, classic or new indie cinema.
  • Our affordable flatrate subscription Stream99 offers an even more rigorous selection of choices.
