Film studios and distributors are now creating their own content exclusive streaming services and it appears probable that movies are going to be available on digital and physical platforms much sooner in 2019/20. If cinemas wish to survive these continuing changes, then they will need to change their model to reflect the way in which audiences viewing habits have changed with modern times.
At Beanbag, we wish to help to sustain the cinema experience. But, we also want to provide you, the avid movie watcher, with the ability to choose your movie-watching experience whilst having access to all films on one platform. To facilitate this, we are in continual discussions with film festivals and distributors across Australia. We are excited about partnering with these great companies so we can deliver a collaborative service to the most important person, you, the customer.
Encourage the industry to collaborate further on this topic by supporting us!
The beta release of our app is imminent, and we look forward to uploading some movies for your viewing pleasure.

Some time ago, we at Beanbag predicted that movie studios would be dividing the streaming world by creating a multitude of streaming services. With Warner Bros, Disney and several others now launching their own streaming service, this seems to have become reality. Are you prepared to subscribe to them all?
Our "we hear you" slogan is no joke. The question that remains to be asked within the film industry is - what does the customer want? We are certain that you want to watch the latest releases like us, and with as much content as possible on a single service. Our aim is to bring that service to you.
Although deliberation with film industry continues, we are excited to announce that Beanbag is in discussions with several film festivals about our mission to offer you digital tickets to your favourite festivals from across the globe. We look forward to bringing you more information soon.

Studios appear set to gear up for talks about getting their movies onto digital and physical platforms much sooner in 2019. If movie theatres wish to survive these continuing changes, then theatres need to change their model to reflect the way in which audiences have changed with modern times. At Beanbag, we wish to help to sustain the cinema experience. But, we also want to provide you with the ability to choose your movie-watching experience through using Beanbag in the comfort of your home.
To facilitate this, we have upcoming meetings with major industry players. We are excited at collaborating further with these companies in order to improve your movie-watching experience and accessibility. Encourage the industry to collaborate further on this topic by supporting us!
We are also approaching the beta release of our app and look forward to uploading some movies for your viewing pleasure.
Hope you had a happy New Year!

Using our findings, we have been able to complete a financial model that will guide the industry as to how film makers, distributors, cinemas and Beanbag can work together to ensure everyone remains profitable now and in the future.
Because we are independent from the current industry, we can share and support a unified industry without bias.
Beanbag will benefit you and the industry by:
- Making theatrical release movies available to you, in HD, the same month they are released in cinemas.
- The number of movies watched will skyrocket, which means studios will be able to pump more money into film production.
- Cinemas can share our revenue in order to adjust to the new industry.
- Removing the delay between movies' theatrical window and their availability on a streaming platform.
