Today, the Fanhattan team is very happy to welcome three new services to our rapidly expanding library of premium entertainment: Crackle, Lifetime, and PBS.
Our goal at Fanhattan is to help you quickly discover and dive deep with all of the amazing entertainment spread across your favorite online watering holes. With the addition of these great services today, your ability to uncover a wealth of free – and in some cases exclusive – content through Fanhattan just got a whole lot stronger.
Nice. Let’s meet the new neighbors!
Crackle features great full-length movies and television, new and old — and all for free. Sorting through the Crackle library is an adventure in itself and we’re having a blast watching such films as Das Boot, Donnie Brasco, Snatch, A Few Good Men, and even the quirky beloved sci-fi romp Starship Troopers. We also uncovered some visually stunning anime with Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, Steamboy, and Tokyo Godfathers.
Finally, Seinfeld anyone? Thought so. Crackle brings Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer to your iPad or iPhone along with other classic TV like I Dream of Jeannie, Barney Miller, Sanford and Son, and All in the Family.
We can remember when we first heard about Project Accessory, the Lifetime fashion battle series starring Molly Sims: yes please! In this show, Sims and celebrity judges including the Kenneth Cole evaluate and review (with a little mentoring along the way) fashion accessory creations from budding designers. You’re going to watch it and now you can. What else? How about How I Met Your Mother starring Mr. Neil Patrick Harris and The Muppets screenwriter Jason Segel? The New Adventures of Old Christine and The Protector round out a fantastic carving of Lifetime content.
Yes, THAT PBS. Now at your fingertips 24-7 are the culturally significant, fun, and entertaining shows you’ve loved for years. The long-running and critically-acclaimed Nova series is here and pairs up nicely with other beloved favorites like Antiques Roadshow, The American Experience and the jewel of the crown: select episodes from over 30 seasons of trend-setting music and performers exposed on Austin City Limits. We can feel you getting smarter and more worldly from here.
We’re truly happy to have these new content powerhouses on board and can’t wait to show you who else we’ve got up our sleeves very soon. The update is available both for Fanhattan for iPad and iPhone, without updating your app. The best way to stay in touch of announcements like these? Follow us on Twitter of course!
