MacVoicesTV #1194: Gilles BianRosa of Fanhattan Discusses How They Find The Media You Want…Wherever It Is
With the ever-increasing number of services offering movies, TV shows and more, it can be difficult to find what you want when you want it. Enter Fanhattan. Gilles BianRosa, CEO of Fanhattan explains how their service locates the movies, TV shows and more that you want to see, tells you how they are available (rent, buy, stream, etc.), and in many cases, lets you start watching right away, especially on an iDevice. Fanhattan goes beyond that, though, and connects you with all sorts of related content and materials to supplement your experience. Gilles covers all that, the future of Fanhattan on our televisions, and more.
