What’s inside the new NFB iPhone App



So here’s what the NFB iPhone app can do:

*WATCH hundreds of NFB movies on your iPhone. Most of the films available on NFB.ca are encoded for the iPhone. Soon all of them will be available.

*WATCH LATER – We wanted to make an app that was useful even outside of wi-fi hotspots so you can load films to your iPhone for up to 24 hours of offline viewing.

*SEARCH – the NFB collection on your iPhone

*CHANNELS – Browse films by category and genre. (Classic Movies, Kids’ Cartoons, etc.)

*FAVOURITES – Bookmark your favourite films

*NEARBY – Watch movies that others in your area are watching

Download the NFB iPhone app here (iTunes link).

The reviews are already coming in through Twitter:

“Possibly the greatest iPhone app ever: NFB Films. Watch 1000s of National Film Board of Canada movies. Best part? FREE!”
