Pay for Only the Shows You Want
When You Want Them
Netflix and Hulu definitely provides an all-in-one streaming video platform for its subscribers but what if a subscriber only wants to view the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead? Does it make sense for the subscriber to pay $8 a month for Netflix or Hulu, which may never get the latest episodes?
GroupFlix, a Cable TV Alternative like no other. GroupFlix is an (#alacarteTV) online video service that allows TV viewers to pay for, and watch only the shows they love. Even services like Amazon Video can’t offer shows for 30 to 90 days after the season is over. And even then, the cost is enormous at several dollars per episode. GroupFlix wants to flip that model upside down by offering these shows within a day of their broadcast. With GroupFlix,TV lovers can select the shows they are interested in watching, and then will be charged a monthly fee of $8 to $10 to watch their favorite shows within 24 hours of their airing.
The only bad news is that GroupFlix is still in beta. Currently only three shows are available on GroupFlix: The Walking Dead, Magic City and Low Winter Sun. Every time an episode is available, the subscribers receive an e-mail and all they have to do is click, watch and enjoy. But the more people who join, the better chance that this service will take off.
How GroupFlix Works
Users can “unlock” a show on GroupFlix by expressing enough interest in it. New seasons of your favorite shows are made available when enough TV fans raise the ‘gLevel‘. TV fans can raise the gLevel by getting more people involved through social media, blogging, or simply by word of mouth. Once the show is unlocked, subscribers pay a monthly $9 subscription to be able to watch it (commercial free).
How to Join the Cause
GroupFlix gained its inspiration from the cancellation of ABC’s Detroit 1-8-7. The network took the show off air, disappointing fans all over the world. GroupFlix wants to take the decision out of the hands of network executives, and give the power back to the people. In conclusion, GroupFlix is a fantastic Cable TV Alternative and if it picks up steam, could be a cordcutter’s dream come true. So go sign up today! There is no charge and if we all join forces we can really make a difference! www.groupflix.tv
