MPAA introduces new site to help audiences find movies online

May 16, 2013

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) announced the launch of www.WheretoWatch.org, a new website that will serve as a resource for audiences to access movies and TV shows seamlessly and legally.

Senator Chris Dodd, chairman and CEO of the MPAA, emphasized the importance of delivering content in new, creative ways: “Audiences want seamless access to film and TV shows. Our industry has listened, and we are now delivering more choices that ever before. There have never been more ways to access movies and television legitimately online, and those platforms continue to grow and develop thanks in large part to a copyright system that encourages innovation, risk and growth. The companies I represent are committed to continuing to create and develop the best ways for audiences to enjoy the entertainment they love.”

The website breaks the various services into relevant categories and summarizes what each platform provides, including what content is available, how it is supported, and what devices are compatible. The list is an aggregate based on services available in the United States, and although the services offering movies and TV shows differ by country, several services are available in multiple countries.
