Miramax Facebook App
August 22, 2011
Miramax is set to become the latest film studio to sell movies on Facebook, with a movie rental app on the social network. Users will also be able to watch the movies on an iPad through a browser-based player, with Miramax suggesting that a stand alone iPad app could come later.
Miramax eXperience will open with 10 films available to rent throughout September, each costing 30 Facebook credits in the UK and Turkey.
Other film studios have also tried using Facebook for film rentals. For example, Warner Bros released The Dark Knight on the social networking site as a one off earlier this year.
