Watching a movie in the post-DVD world is a mess. Blu-Ray startup times are measured in dozens of minutes. Digital is faster, but good luck finding your movie. If you find it, you’d better not get interrupted because you’ve got 24 hours to watch it!

There has to be a better way.

muvichip is the first global, solid-state, movie distribution media that can be used anywhere and on any device that has a USB port, and, when paired up with the muvifi or muvifi+ streaming device, you can watch a movie on ANY device. Studios are excited to distribute their movies on muvichip, and national stores want to stock it.

But we need your help.

We’re running a funding campaign on IndieGoGo to get our first batch out the door. You can be the first to order the muvifi and your favorite movies on the muvichip by helping to fund us on IndieGoGo. You’ll only be charged if we hit our funding goal.

Help us make the future of movie distribution that combines the ease of use of digital with the quality and catalog of DVD/Blu-Ray.

    Meh.

    Who says we live in a post-DVD world? Techies may love the alternatives, but DVDs still rule.

      DVDs make me want to burn my eyes out on my home cinema screen. HD video is a must, wether its Blu-Ray, online (or “muvichip”).

    “Studios are excited to distribute their movies on muvichip, and national stores want to stock it.”

    So the same studios that are well aware of how much people hate the slow startup times of DVD (because of all the non-skippable ads) have suddenly and enthusiastically endorsed an alternative that doesn’t have the ads?

    I do not believe you.

    I do think the studios need to realize that they are a powerful influence for good and bad in our culture. Their current business model is dead. It is equivalent to a convenience store putting a tub of cold beer and tobacco products out by the sidewalk and complaining about all the homeless people aren’t willing to come into the store and pay. Those horrible people. We need to lock them up and throw away the key or sue them for stealing. Or, maybe you need to make all popular films available on demand so stealing is not easier than buying. I recently had to call around an borrow “Star Wars” because I could not legally pay to download the film on line. There are dozens of on-line services that lack content because of the studios are unwilling to license films that are over 20 years old. We need to limit copyrights to a shorter period of time for movies and require that after 10 years the Movies must be available or lose copyright protection. There is no excuse for stealing and there is no excuse for bad business. Leave the door unlocked and don’t expect the society or insurance company to pay for your incompetence.

      its up to content owners what they do with their content they produced.
      As a content creator myself I find the entitlement nature of many internet users abhorent. Just because something isnt available in the exact format/medium that someone wants at the exact time they want it, it doesnt give the right for someone to steal the content from an illegal online source.
      Sometimes there is a very valid reason for content to not be available in all formats, a very important one being the context in which it is presented.

    SanDisk tried solid state distribution of content. Didn’t do very well. Would be interesting to figure out what, if at all, these guys are doing different.
