Tribeca Shortlist, the curated streaming platform launched earlier this year by Tribeca Enterprises and Lionsgate, is adding both offline playback and mobile capability to its arsenal of features.
In addition to its new features, Tribeca Shortlist is also expanding its availability with new apps available on Roku set-top boxes, Roku TV and Amazon Fire TV. Amazon Prime Video members can also purchase a subscription to Tribeca Shortlist for $4.99 per month. With wider availability and a new suite of mobile-friendly features, Tribeca Shortlist is hoping to snag more subscribers for its curated film services.
“Expanding to these thriving streaming platforms and devices reinforces Tribeca Shortlist’s commitment to give film lovers an easy way of finding quality movies through informed recommendations and now more ubiquitous access,” said Tribeca Shortlist President Jeff Bronikowski in a statement. “Offline viewing is also a game-changer for users that want to utilize our expert Shortlist suggestions or watch a great film on the go when they’re anywhere with limited or no Internet connectivity.”
Launched earlier this year, Tribeca Shortlist offers a collection of independent and classic films with a focus on quality. Rather than rely on a sophisticated algorithm to organize its content or make recommendations, the fledgling services uses human tastemakers to curate playlists for subscribers. These “shortlisters” include notable stars and creators from film, television, and digital entertainment auxh A John Leguizamo (“Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar,” the “Ice Age” films), Matthew Modine (“Full Metal Jacket”), documentary filmmaker and producer Morgan Spurlock (“Super Size Me”), actress Yaya DaCosta (“The Kids Are All Right”), Tribeca’s Geoff Gilmore, producer Jason Blum (“Paranormal Activity”), fitness expert Bob Harper (“The Biggest Loser”) and actress and Maker Studios co-founder Lisa
