FandangoNOW is an online streaming service that you can use on your computer, a smart TV, a streaming device or even a video game console. While similar to companies like Vudu and Netflix, it charges a rate per film instead of charging a monthly service fee. Each film or television show that you select is available for purchase, but you can also rent those videos. Older films and shows typically cost less than new releases.
The history of Fandango, the parent company of FandangoNOW, dates back to 2000. Its founders created the company as a way to make movie going for convenient for shoppers. Those shoppers can log into the website, search for theaters in their areas, select a film and time and then purchase those tickets online. Fandango charges a small convenience fee, but the site makes it easy for film buffs to get tickets for advanced showings and before popular films sell out.
In 2015, Fandango took over ownership of Flixster Video and M-Go. These two streaming sites allowed users to download movies and TV shows for watching at home. After acquiring the two properties, the company turned them both into FandangoNOW. While Flixster still exists as an app that lets users watch trailers, search for films playing in theaters and check out upcoming releases, the streaming service of that app is now part of FandangoNOW.
As a streaming service, FandangoNOW is available for use on a number of devices, including those from manufacturers like Samsung, LG and Roku. To use the app and watch any videos, you must register an account with the site. Fandango lets you create an account for free and only requires an email address and password, but before you can download and watch videos, you must register a debit or credit card with the app.
FandangoNOW offers videos both for sale and as rentals. When you rent a video, you have up to 30 days to load that video and begin watching. As soon as you watch even a few seconds of the video, the app will limit your time period to 48 hours. Once this limit passes, the video expires and disappears from your list. For videos that you buy, FandangoNOW gives you unlimited access. You can watch those videos across all devices that have the app downloaded.
When you select a film or television show, FandangoNOW will give you a little information about the video, including the names of the top actors, the director and its length. You can also read a short synopsis. If you select a television show, the app will show you any other episodes that are currently available. You can also watch a trailer for the video and add it to your watchlist. Even if you do not purchase or rent the video, it will still appear in your watchlist.
FandangoNOW and Fandango appeal to film buffs with videos and other content posted online. Its I Love Movies series lets you see what films your favorite athletes watch. I Love Movies: Ryan Lochte - Belly (2016) HD offers clips from the Kevin Hart film with comments from Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte about why he loves the film so much.
Category listings at the top of the FandangoNOW website help you find the exact programs that you want. When you hover over the movies category, you'll see different genres, including kids' films, documentaries, fantasy flicks and romantic comedies. The TV shows section lets you view action, drama, comedy and even reality shows. You'll also find links to free shows that you can watch for a limited period of time and the top 50 shows currently available.
