A new site has been born called MovinFlicks.com. What is interesting about this site is it streams movies. What is more interesting about this site is it streams movies for free. What is incredibly interesting about this site is that it streams movies for free that are still in theatres. How do you ask? Well if you read the disclaimer on the website is that they do not host the files they are simply linking to ones already online. How they appeared online is that they were most likely downloaded of BiTtorrent and then stored on a file server somewhere in the world. None the less within a few simple clicks you are streaming a full motion picture.
Why is this so disruptive? Well for starters it's crazily illegal, however what if this site over the next few month's reports 10's of millions if not more streams of it's movies. What if nothing else this site exposes market demand that shows the studios they could stream their movies at less then DVD quality and make a truck load off advertising. Similarly to what the TV networks are doing with their TV shows but for movies. What if motion picture investors could re-coupe their investments in 6 month's instead of 18.
I have no idea how long this site will last but it sure causes you to use your imagination and I really wonder if it's successful if it forces the blind studios to finally use theirs.
