Top Sites of the Week

The latest websites that caught our attention...

SCREENHITS
www.screenhits.tv


We’ve just discovered this site and we’re more than a little impressed. After signing a deal to partner with Samsung, the simple business model offers viewers access to hit TV shows, films and pilots from around the world, marrying this with an invitation only business to business model for distributors. The USP? That one side feeds the other; i.e when viewers rate the shows this then informs the B2B platform. With entire series on offer and an eighty percent return rate, it’s no surprise they're making noises in all the right places.
