  • Netflix rolls out new fees for password sharing in Canada
    I recommend Mubi. Just quality stuff, opposite of Netflix. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Signed up for a month of Mubi, any great films I'm missing from my watchlist?
    Well you can go to and sign up directly with them. I did this with BFI and tried to do it with Shudder but for BFI their web player wasn't as good as Prime and with Shudder I literally couldn't get the website to accept any of my cards. So now, if there is an Amazon Channel available for a service, I tend to go via that for ease. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Mundane Films
    Not a specific movie, but if you go onto and browse there seems to be a lot of movies like this up your alley. I'm not crazy about mundane films but there seems to be a lot of simple life indie movies there. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • mubi's content download
    Is there any way to get movies from I have the subscription but I want to save some movies for later watching purpose how to do that? Tried OBS, nothing but black screen. anyone? - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • I desperately need movie recommendations. Fair warning, I've watched tons of movies. So, hit me with your best shot.
    Check out their website too. They offer a 7-day free trial. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • Ask HN: Are the 2020s the decade of peak homogenisation?
    If you're looking at the dominant platforms or artists then yes, of course, things look the same. But there is an infinite amount of diversity if you look around. For example if you dislike Netflix / Disney approach, you have platforms such as MUBI ( where you have handpicked selections of worldwide movies, with lot of more artsy and unusual styles. Regarding music I cannot even start to imagine... - Source: Hacker News / 12 months ago
  • What are some 90s terms that are no longer used today?
    I used to subscribe to this curated streaming service and it's pretty good. Just one movie added per day, if I remember correctly: - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Fellow Aussies, what is your favourite streaming service & why?
    MUBI I just learned about it today. It focuses on independent, classic and foreign films. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Psychedelics have eroded my interest in most movies, TV shows, comedies, and performative content
    I see. Ideally the best films should force you to to confront your emotions rather than serving as a distraction. To start I would recommend trying MUBI, a streaming service that curates films chosen for their unique vision and artistic value, including independent films as well as lesser-known classics. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Criterion Channel equivalent?
    Same as in foreign art films? Filmbox Arthouse (which also has a channel on SkyCable) and Mubi lang. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Mubi Free Trial
    I just got a 60-day free trial of Mubi, and I’m loving it so far. For the art house film lover, it’s perfect. Just thought I should share the love. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Found it in its FULL GLORY
    Link to MUBI, although pretty sure CinemaTyler's got a discount code if you're into that - but I probably shouldn't link it here to avoid outright shilling. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Netflix Intensifies ‘VPN’ Ban and Targets Residential IP-Addresses Too
    This somewhat sounds like or - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Simple Living Movies Thread
    The Gleaners, 1999 by French film directing legend Agnes Varda. She follows various people who live from what others discard. People gathering up potatoes, people who repair things, dumpster divers, all sorts. It's currently on and I dare say available from other sources. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Barry Diller Now Says the Movie Business Is Dead
    In addition to the criterion channel, already mentioned, try MUBI [1]. It’s a cinephile’s dream: a film discovery nearly everyday while also curating the great directors. [1] - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago

  • After 8 months of self-teaching, I finally coded a job ready project - A Nexflix clone! Any tips or feedback highly appreciated!
    Congratulations u/Halmesn, good job! I think it is a good project, you can offer your services to or other streaming companies. I see you replicated very well the functionality. It's not perfect, but it works, I like that. But the most important thing, I envy your passion, in a good way of course. I wish I have 1% of your determination now I'm a senior dev :). Thanks for sharing this. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • I wish original ideas get made more rather than reboots or sequesl or remakes or prequels.
    MUBI has lots of new curated films, while Criterion Channel has some. So does Shudder. These platforms will require you to perhaps watch something outside of your comfort zone, but that's ok. Original filmmaking is often meant to be challenging, even provocative. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago

The Cons: Well, there’s the whole ticking-clock thing. If you’re someone with a busy schedule who prefers to add movies to your queue to watch at a later date, this isn’t a great option. And compared to FilmStruck, it’s also a bit pricy for the limited number of movies you have access to at a given time. There was also some backlash this week when a crop of recent ads prompted folks on Twitter to call out Mubi for...
