    i don't know if there are any MUBI fans here, but they've just released their Apple TV app and it's a thing of beauty. They've been on other platforms, such as the PS4, iOS, Android, and Fire TV for a while, and they use the same gorgeous UI on their Apple TV app.

    For those that don't know, MUBI is a movie steaming service in a bunch of countries (I'm in the UK) which focuses on non mainstream fare, - cult, art house, classic etc. They throw in the odd fairly modern mainstream Hollywood pick sometimes, but mostly it's stuff you probably haven't heard of, which is the whole point of the service. It also has a continually changing library, so you get 30 films to choose from, and each day the oldest one is removed and a new one is added.

    The app is beautiful as I mentioned and it even has top shelf support. No Siri yet but that's blocked until Apple release the API to developers.

    Yesterday's film was suitably xmas themed too - Satoshi Kon's wonderful movie Tokyo Godfathers.

    Interesting app. Just downloaded it to the iPhone and might to the same when I get back to atv. Thanks for the info, I was unaware of this app and will give it a try.

    I'm a big fan of Mubi and I've got annual membership. I was waiting for this app since the day I bought Apple TV 4. The app works flawlessly. I wish there was an option to download movies.

    Ive just joined up for the year (at less than £35 for the year its a good deal).
    It looks like a great service and hopefully it will introduce me to new films I may have not watched otherwise. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Not sure to be honest. They're in the UK and US, and I think France, Germany and Spain too. Maybe others.

    Thanks. I found it myself. It's NOT geo-fenced.

    I'm watching it right now. What a great app.

    You get one month free trial by the way.
