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.
