MUBI Review | Price, Features and Content

Information verified correct on January 21st, 2017

Got a backlog of classic movies you’ve been meaning to watch? MUBI filters out the rubbish and presents you with only the finest cinematic gold.

MUBI first began in 2007 as an online social network for filmaholics. But in the face of popularity and demand, MUBI began offering an online streaming service in 2010. MUBI offers a small selection of hand-picked films that are designed to appeal to fans of classic, world, and off-beat cinema. If you’re looking for blockbusters you won’t find them here, but if you love art films or like to indulge in great movies from history then MUBI will bring them directly to your device for a low monthly price.

Price and packages

MUBI offers just one package, which costs $6.99 per month. For that you can watch a handpicked selection of 30 films, which will change each month. That’s one new film per day.

Verdict

MUBI won’t appeal to everyone, but if you’re a cinema buff it’s a great addition to your streaming repertoire. If you are into classic cinema, finding new films, or re-visiting forgotten classics, then MUBI is absolutely for you. If you’re looking for blockbusters, or mostly recent content, then you might prefer another servicer. Either way, hats off to MUBI for creating a simple package, a beautifully usable website, and a truly original offering.
