San Francisco - Internet entertainment set-top box maker
said Tuesday that it has added the Flixster "coming attractions" service to the growing list of service options on its streaming media players.
Flixster offers both theatrical and on DVD/video-on-deman movie trailers. The new service offering will also provide the Tomatometer scores from Rotten Tomatoes to guide users in their movie-going and in-home film selections.
Roku customers will be able to search Flixster's database of movie trailers and find those same movies to watch through one of Roku's partners, including Netflix and Amazon Video On Demand.
"Flixster has quickly become one of the most well-known and trusted movie brands among consumers, who associate Flixster with learning about the newest film entertainment," stated Anthony Wood, Roku founder and CEO. "We think there is a great fit between discovering movies with Flixster and watching them on-demand on the Roku player."
Flixster joins Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, MLB.TV, and the Ultimate Fighting Championship on the Roku devices.
