As of today, MUBI is live on Sony's PlayStation 3 in the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Australia and New Zealand. Next week, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and Portugal will follow.
You can download the free MUBI application from the PlayStation Store and start watching movies you rent individually or opt for a 30-day subscription. We'll also be hand-picking films, a few at a time, that we want to show you for free. MUBI Founder and CEO Efe Cakarel spells out all the details at the PlayStation.Blog.Europe — and he's got another announcement as well. On November 20, to coincide with the world premiere of Revolución, we'll be presenting, for free, the omnibus film (with contributions from the likes of Fernando Eimbcke, Carlos Reygadas, Amat Escalante, Gerardo Naranjo and Gael García Bernal) reflecting on the 100th anniversary of the Mexican revolution. And as Efe adds, "this online premiere is just the beginning of the unique cinema events we'll host on MUBI!"
