they added a new channel called inmoo in the channel store...it's cool!!! it has tons of independent films even newer ones..looks like ti has lots of promise!!
flower you guys move fast! I hit submit on my post and there I was...right on top of you!
OK, I just went back & deleted my thread...but I'm putting it here just so I won't feel left out
Every Thursday night I eagerly go to the channel store to see what's new. Last night I found Inmoo http://www.inmoo.com
I browsed through the catagories and read almost all of the movie descriptions. I was pleasently surprised. Also found some NF movies there.
I loaded several just to check out load time & quality. Everything loaded pretty fast and quality seemed just fine. The UI is like many of the other Roku channels. I was using the Roku on my old 480p tube tv, but I'll check it out again on the HD TV.
Seems like mainly independent films, with a few "heard of" titles and/or actors, which is fine by me. I also saw a few made-for-tv titles thrown in. I'm not expecting too much b/c I know how most independent films go, but if I get great storylines & plots, I'm good. There isn't a whole lot available yet, but it's brand-spanking new to Roku and hopefully I'll enjoy watching it's growth. I'm curious as to how the Festival catagory will pan out..
Just a couple of quirky things to know:
1) When you go to the Genre catagory, the individual genres are at the top of the screen (Just like Amazon). BUT, you have to actually click "ok" on the genre in order for it to load, then hit the "down" arrow. Amazon auto-loads the genre then you hit the "down" arrow
2) When you click on the movie & the synopsis screen comes up, look in the lower left hand corner. If you see a run-time of "0", the movie is unavailable. If a time is listed (ie 1:42m) then you're good to go.
Perhaps #2 is temporary as they are new and still getting it together.
