is creating Film Distribution, Free TV Broadcast + Streaming for Film Lovers
See the Quirky Video up above? Now who's gonna love this more than fans of Indie Film? To see more fun stuff like this...read below!
We're Advocates for the Filmmaker, and the Film/TV lover. For over 5 years now, Movies Plus has broadcast Independently made movies and television programming to Cordcutter's, and Film & TV lovers.

You may have watched some of our
FREE AD-FREE INDEPENDENT CHANNELS...



Much like over-the-air "broadcast" television, we stream our content directly to your television, computer/tablet or cellphone. If you have a Roku, Fire TV, or Android then it's free to watch. And simply put -- this is a great way to be introduced to new, rare, and exciting film and television.

Additionally, Movies Plus TV Channels are a great way for the indie filmmaker to beat the very difficult Hollywood system. Many of our success stories are told on our Film-Fest, MetroFilmFestival and our TV-App site, Moviesplus -- but please read on before you click over.

WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR SUPPORT

1. Find new movies and TV shows. (Acquisition and Licensing.)

2. Curate content submitted via the Metro Film Festival. (Movies Plus has a family-friendly audience. All content must target viewers over the age of 13, NO adult themes/nudity/language/graphic violence. This is regulated by Roku guidelines)

3. Rent Bandwidth (data use) Video Storage. This is VERY EXPENSIVE. Consider the size of a HD movie file and how much it costs to stream it to thousands of people. There's no way to eliminate this cost and it's a real concern for Independents like us.

4. Develop TV-APPS (channels) through use of SDK's and/or proprietary coding such as Android. This also includes the hiring of 3rd party software engineers when necessary.

5. Publish and Maintain the current Channels on numerous platforms and take the steps needed to expand into Apple, SBTV and XUMO. (This process includes all development plus the publication of film descriptions, movie-posters, and meta-data.)

6. Monitor and Update content via Streaming Video Feeds (JSON/MRSS) daily.

7. Publicize all of our TV channels on social media in order to support our Filmmakers and each one of our Channels branding. This is required to reach unique audiences on each channel.

In addition to Movies Plus, our other channels currently are:
AHM (ArtHouse Movies)
TMN (The Movie Network)
"Film Fest Best"
"Badass TV"
"The Screening Room"
and in Beta the "IFC" (Indie Film Collective.)

How we've Grown!  Here's a snapshot from App-Annie, an important source for rating Apps, as you can see, our Movies Plus Fire TV App is #48 -- that's above ABC!

GOALS & THANK YOU TIERS

You may notice that we have not set up this webpage exactly like a Kicksarter or typical Crowdfunding campaign. That's because Movies Plus doesn't manufacture widgets or the next best bread slicer.  But don't let that fool you.  We do allot of work for the Art, Film-Art, and Cord-Cutter community.

We show our thanks to you by placing new movies and TV-shows on our TV-Channels and our TV-APPS!
And this in turn gives you more unique entertainment to enjoy, which in turn serves the filmmaker who is in dire need of exposure... And this process helps our Society because it supports the Arts Community including Media Arts. We need ART, We need YOU!

The larger your financial contribution, the more time we can spend searching for new content, curating the programming and making sure that Indie Filmmakers are well represented so that they can get the publicity they deserve.

Please give what you can. Whether it's a one-time gift or a monthly contribution, we appreciate all that you can do. If you have questions or if you would prefer to directly send a gift via Paypal, then use our webmail.

Would you care to help continue our services? If so, please click the Patreon button. Not ready yet? Maybe you need to check us out first -- please do...We're on www.MoviesPlus.org and there you'll find several of our channels that reach over 1 Million viewers.

The content is rare, and sometimes off-the-beaten track or downright weird, but it is family friendly, and it is accessible to everyone who has a cell phone and/or a Roku/Fire TV device. Our TV-APPS on Smart TV's (like VIZIO, Samsung) are coming soon.

The Movies Plus Audience reach is growing daily. We have over 400,000 subscribers on Fire TV, and another 600,000 Subs on Roku. Also, the Movies Plus Android App is new and in Beta, yet we have over 10K installs to date.

We encourage you to help us to maintain this desperately needed service! Please become a Movies Plus Patreon! Your financial contribution will give aspiring filmmakers a venue for their movies, and your help will also insure that Movies Plus continues to offer our much needed services for years to come.

Thank you in advance,
The Team at Movies Plus,
Program Director: Dean Lachiusa

PS: filmmakers...don't forget, you're always welcome to submit your film/trailer for VOD broadcast on our Channels. See our website(s) for more info!

This is simply a THANK YOU for your Donation, and I can't air anything that is not allowed by Roku or Youtube community standards.


I'll place your video on our Android, Fire and/or Roku channel(s.)  That means you'll reach about 1 Million Subscribers.  


1.) To be placed on our Android app, simply put your video on Youtube and send me the link.


2.) For Roku and/or Fire TV -- Please...you must first place your content on a Public service.  I suggest you upload it to Archive.org.  But you may use Dropbox too.

Publicity! I'll promote your URL and...
$20 or more per month

You'll get all of benefits of Tiers 1 and 2 plus I'll post your WEBSITE address on the description of a video.*    


This Tier offers a great way to tell folks that you support indie film.   Here's how:


I will ask you for a 1-2 sentence description of: Your Biz OR a video if you choose to submit one.

Within this brief description, you may place your website's URL and perhaps a statement like "At Joes Widget's, we support Indie film, visit www.mydotcom.


*YOU DON'T NEED TO HAVE A VIDEO!

If you don't have a video, then I will pick a goodwill documentary like "Billions in Change." 


In this manner WE THANK YOU for helping us, and we all indirectly lend a hand to organizations that believe in lending a hand, as we do.  


See the last tier for more info on 'Billions'  -- and also you may email us with other inquiries: [email protected]



ALL TIERS PLUS ART
$25 or more per month

I'll do TIER 1, 2, and 3 PLUS!


One, two, and three will give a great amount of satisfaction.

AND if you have a biz or film that you would like to have represented by art, then you might want to add this tier.


Consider this a much appreciated thank you for your support.


I"ll take a snapshot from your video AND/OR your Logo/Art and then I'll make a jpeg to represent you/your-biz on my Roku/FireTV Channels.


I'll then post this art on my channels, where about 1 Million Roku and Fire TV subscribers will be able to see you and your organization support Independently made movies and TV.

Next to the art is your description and website URL.  And of course (if) you've submitted a video*, then our audience will be able to watch it free.


PS: You can mix n' match what type or how much Publicity you would like!

  

*For example, if you don't have a video that represents you, then I can pick one for you.  

Maybe it's one of our documentaries, like "Billions in Change" the film about a guy who makes and gives away solar energy packs to disadvantaged people in the Far East who live outside of a power-grid (that's right, they are without electricity.)
