Prescreen suspended its initial beta test until further notice. We very much appreciate your interest in our service and hope that you enjoyed your experience with Prescreen.
In early 2011, we started Prescreen because we believed the future of film discovery and distribution is digital. Last September, we launched the beta version of our site to test this premise. In just 8 months, we proved that this is likely to be the case. In total, Prescreen featured 168 films, rented more than 10,000 movies, and saw more than 115,000 subscribers opt in to receive Prescreen movies. That said, we're perfectionists and we still don't believe we've seized the opportunity. For now, we're going back to the drawing board. When we come out on the other side, we'll be sure to let you know.
We are incredibly thankful for all of the support from our investors and advisers, and especially all the indie fans who have supported this effort.
