Mill Creek Entertainment has announced the launch of movieSPREE. The new streaming on-demand service allows users to purchase digital titles without long-term contracts, subscription fees, or advertisements.

movieSPREE is a transaction-based streaming platform with a variety of value-priced films, TV shows, genre-based collections, and curated compilations all available for purchase. In addition, new users can now take advantage of a special promotion to redeem 100 free movies when they sign up. Likewise, the service will be compatible with digital redemption codes included with Mill Creek Blu-ray and DVD releases.
Current titles available via movieSPREE include Lonesome Dove, The 10th Kingdom, The Kids in the Hall, Documentary Now!, Benji, Gone in 60 Seconds, and over 2500 hours of additional content. Prices start at just 99 cents for a variety of movies and bundles. The service has been developed in collaboration with OTT content distribution provider ViewLift.
"The ViewLift team is thrilled to partner with Mill Creek Entertainment to launch movieSPREE," states ViewLift President Manik Bambha. "Our alliance showcases the robust features and functionality of a backend system developed by the ViewLift team. ViewLift's monetization and distribution expertise launched movieSPREE, which will help cinephiles watch movies they love and introduce new viewers to great films."
