Today was a big day for me. Because today we launched WATCHEVER - our unique series and movie flat rate in Germany. It is the first service worldwide to also provide unique offline availability for travelling.
Users of WATCHEVER will be able to watch entire seasons of award-winning US series, blockbusters and international art house films via internet on a wide range of devices. Using the service is as simple as watching TV. For a fixed price of 8.99 euros per month, series and movie enthusiasts will get unlimited access to thousands of films from US, European and German productions without additional costs or commercials.
Prerequisite for the use of the service is an internet connection. Our WATCHEVER users can choose their end device from web-enabled television sets (Smart TVs or other TVs connected to game consoles), PCs as well as Mac computers, notebooks, tablets, iPads or iPhones. If no internet connection is available, for example while travelling, films can be transferred in advance to the offline mode and then watched on the iPad, Android tablet or iPhone.
Top titles from almost all major US and German studios are part of the repertoire. The users are able to choose between the German dubbed version and the original version. Most of the films are even offered in high-definition quality (HD). There are so many titles for children and adults available anytime that one would have to watch the films 24/7 for much longer than a year in order to watch everything. I am wishing for rainy Sundays now.
For orientation, we have implemented several options: customer ratings, editorial tips and a unique adaptive algorithm which is able to generate personal film recommendations. Customers can also log in with their Facebook account to get movies and series recommendations from their friends. However, this option can be chosen by the users.
We also put a special emphasis on a comprehensive choice of popular and high-quality films for children. In order to guarantee that children watch only films with appropriate content for their age, WATCHEVER provides a child safety function.
The service is available at http://www.watchever.de/
Did I mention that I am really proud of this project? Great job!
