Mometu, a free ad-supported streaming service, on Wednesday launched on VIZIO, bringing a slew of unique films and TV series from around the world to the smart TV brand.
VIZIO users have round-the-clock access to more than 50,000 hours of Mometu programs, including classics like The Beverly Hillbillies and The Tales of Wells Fargo. Households can also find cult classics such as Stalag 17 and Halloween and international hits including The Policeman’s Lineage. Mometu hosts thousands of independent films and festival favorite titles such as An Electric Sleep, a science fiction thriller by award-winning filmmaker Ben Taylor, which debuted exclusively on Mometu last November.
Mometu launched in August 2022 with the promise of providing an immense catalog of diverse films, documentaries, and TV series from all over the globe, including classics that can no longer be found online. The start-up streamer secured deals to launch on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, LG, and Samsung TVs last year. Download the app from the Google Play or Apple App Store.
“Mometu shares VIZIO’s mission to bring on-demand, instant access to the shows and movies viewers love, completely free and all in one place,” said Bryan Louzil, vice president of business development for Mometu. “We’re delighted to be a part of the VIZIO family and bring the best possible entertainment experience to audiences everywhere.”
VIZIO TVs now host the latest titles available for free on Mometu. The app is a free start-up streaming service dedicated to premium live and on-demand titles with a complete over-the-top media platform.
Mometu is dedicated to preserving and sharing films and series from a multitude of countries and throughout cinematic history. Its platform boasts its 10,000 channels are “hand-curated” without the use of artificial intelligence to uncover “under-the-radar creatives” and cult favorites that can’t be found online anymore.
The platform is broken down into genres like action, thrillers, and science fiction, but further categories titles into niche lists such as romantic comedies or coming-of-age titles. Viewers can also search lists curated by region, like titles from Hong Kong or Latin America, or find channels to surf, such as the Daily Flash and NEWSnet.
