Mubi review | Price, features and content


Last updated:  

Stream riveting, carefully curated vintage and current films — each for a limited time.

Mubi first began in 2007 as an online social network for filmaholics. But by popular 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 historical movies, then Mubi will bring them directly to your device for a low monthly price.

Expert review

Mubi appeals to a specific audience, and 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 revisiting forgotten classics, then Mubi is absolutely for you.

But if you’re looking for blockbusters, or more recent popular content, then you might prefer another provider. Either way, Mubi does a great job in creating a simple package in a beautifully laid-out website that offers truly original content.
