Brooklyn-based film and TV distributor FilmRise has launched a new subscription VOD service entitled CoolFlix, which provides commercial-free streaming of movies and TV shows online, on iOS and Android mobile apps and across various platforms including the Roku media player. FilmRise partnered with ViewLift, a full-service producer of streaming video applications, to develop the service. Aimed to be an affordable streaming service for great indie titles, CoolFlix is offering monthly subscriptions for $2.99 and a discount annual plan of just $9.99. 

With over 25 categories across a variety of genres, CoolFlix’s extensive library of titles includes hit Hollywood movies, special interest features, award-winning foreign language films, independent movies and acclaimed documentaries. Titles include the period drama “Heavens Fall,” starring Timothy Hutton, provocative documentaries from Nick Broomfield, the cult classic “Devil in the Flesh,” starring Rose McGowan, and celebrated international fare from the Global Lens Collection. CoolFlix will continue to build its library each month, with additional titles from Troma Entertainment, Water Bearer Films and other catalogues.

The platform also provides classic television series from premiere cable stations, as well as TV movies from major broadcast networks. Shows include Showtime’s Emmy Award-winning documentary series, “Years of Living Dangerously,” the world’s longest-running true crime series, “Forensic Files,” and the BBC political drama, “The Ambassador.”

“We are beyond thrilled to launch CoolFlix,” said FilmRise CEO Danny Fisher. “We have always strived to reach new heights in the industry, and with our partnership with ViewLift, we have developed a magnificent means of doing so. CoolFlix is an incredible way to expand our company’s horizons and provide these wonderful films to a whole new audience.”
