Movie Flixter is a movie-watching service that lets you watch movies on your computer. It uses your UltraViolet membership to offer digital copies of movies, and offers various promotional deals. During these promotions, movies are available for free. In addition, Flixster offers a database of movies in theaters and digital copies that are registered.
Flixster has been one of the top movie discovery services for both online and mobile users. Its website and mobile apps contain information on new releases and movie reviews, including Tomatometer ratings. With this acquisition, Fandango will also expand the Flixster app to offer ticketing capabilities. Combined, the Flixster website and app have more than 100 million downloads. Flixster Video, which has been available for free for several months, will be merged with Fandango’s new video-on-demand service.
Flixster has a search bar on the homepage, letting you quickly find the latest movies on the site. Just enter a title or name and Flixster will return a list of movies. If the movie you’re searching for is not available on Flixster, the site won’t return any results. Using Flixster, you can watch the latest trailers, read movie reviews and news, and buy movie tickets directly from participating movie theaters.
With this deal, Fandango, a leading movie ticketing company, has acquired Movie Flixster and Rotten Tomatoes, two of the largest and most popular movie review sites. The combination of the two will give Fandango a total audience of 63 million unique visitors per month. Fandango is also acquiring M-GO, an on-demand video service. With the combined audience reach, Fandango is aiming to become the premier destination for all things related to movies.
