One of the best movie platforms to enjoy cult and classic movies curated by high end critics and film experts. A must for film lovers.
MUBI is a film streaming platform that is characterized by having highly acclaimed and curated films in its catalog, especially designed for movie buffs or curious people. In addition to being able to watch online or download more than a hundred audiovisual masterpieces, MUBI has a team of film specialists who publish information about films and festivals around the world. Here's a better explanation of how this film streaming app works and how you can make the most of it.
Like many other streaming services, MUBI works on a monthly subscription basis. However, they offer the possibility of a one-week free trial before subscribing to the service.
Initially MUBI had a lineup of 30 movies available, movies rotated every day, and were removed after spending a month on the billboard. This year, the platform has decided to make available its entire catalog of selected gems, which consists of hundreds of films collected so far. In addition, they maintain their movie of the day function, which is the new title chosen to become part of the platform.
With the exception of a few movies especially when loaned by movie festivals, most films remain in the MUBI catalog once they enter, so you no longer have to rush to see the works that interest you before they disappear and you can replay them as many times as you want. Each film comes with detailed information, a trailer, and a technical data sheet of the creators and performers.
The catalog; you can find categories by country, by era (make sure to take a look at the 70s masterpieces), special selections by director or protagonist, selection of documentaries or short films, highlights at film festivals such as Cannes or film premieres of the platform itself.
The movie listings may vary from one country to another,</bold> this mainly due to permissions which vary according to location. Therefore, if you travel to another place abroad and connect with your same account, MUBI will ask you to update your location. This is recommended if you are going to spend a long period of time in another country.
Categories; films are delicately organized in categories that are progressively updated thanks to the team of cinephiles who work selecting, classifying and displaying these movies to the public.

Next to the Lists icon, you will find a star icon to rate or write a review of the movie, a heart icon to add it to your favorites and the + icon to add/remove it from the watchlist.
Offline mode; with the MUBI app for mobile or tablet you can download the movies to watch them in offline mode, without an internet connection.
