New York — Online movies service Popcornflix has been added to the Sony Entertainment Network, enabling users of Sony Bravia devices — including Bravia Internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray Disc players — free access to the service’s movie library.
The companies said Sony customers can now watch more than 650 feature-length films at no charge with no subscription necessary.
“We’re thrilled to offer our free digital movie platform to Sony customers,” said Gary Delfiner, president of Screen Media Digital, a division of Screen Media Ventures, which owns Popcornflix. “Now movie lovers can access hundreds of great feature-length films free using web-enabled Sony products.”
Popcornflix allows film fans to search movies by genre, actor or director; select from the latest in new arrivals; choose from the site’s most popular films; or browse all of the movies.
Films on Popcornflix feature work from popular Hollywood actors, including Brad Pitt, Kristen Stewart, Alec Baldwin, Meryl Streep, Ryan Reynolds and others.
The service said it adds 30 to 40 feature-length films to the Popcornflix Channel each month.
The ad-supported platform was developed by GigEcast and Screen Media Ventures.
