There’s a number of online streaming services out there, but YEAH! strives to enhance the experience by pairing full films with interactive features. This additional content appears just below the film in a way that keeps it from interfering with the movie, but also makes this bonus material readily accessible. Every YEAH! film comes with 400 – 500 different pieces of extra content like exclusive interviews, little-known facts, quizzes, polls, and more.
And the YEAH! curators managed to snag the films you’d want to have such an experience with – those films you’ve seen time and time again, but just can’t get enough of. The platform launched this month at SXSW and, over the next few months, will grow to boast titles like “Scream,” “300,” “Superman,” “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” “The Exorcist: Director’s Cut,” “Kill Bill,” and many more.
In order to access the YEAH! library, you’ve got to sign up first. Once you’re in, you simply pick the movie you want to check out YEAH!-style, pay the $4.99 fee and you’ve got access to that movie for a 48-hour viewing period that’s good for 30 days after you make the purchase. Considering it costs $3.99 to rent a movie in HD sans bonus material on iTunes, $4.99 for the movie plus YEAH! features seems like a good deal. However, if you’d rather just stick to the movie and the movie alone, YEAH! offers that too for a price of $1.99 – $3.99 depending on the film.
Want to poke around before taking the plunge? YEAH! rocks a pretty bold and sleek site that lets you view every single title available at a glance. Personally, I hone in on “Scream” and that loop of Ghostface shaking his head at the top of the film’s page is pretty close to enticing me to click play. If you’re specifically looking to see if those extra elements are worth the cash, scroll down the site’s homepage because it’s got some snippets of those interviews, quiz questions, and more.
