Film Chest has launched a new subscription service that might be best described as “Netflix for old movies”. works with Android STB, Samsung Smart TV, iPad and Roku, as well as via a web app, offering access to the company’s collection of film and TV content for a monthly fee of $7.99 or $99 a year.

The twist, however, is in the company’s very specific catalogue: Film Chest specialises in public domain and rights-managed film and TV from 1900 to 1980, including classic movies like Nosferatu, House on Haunted Hill and Metropolis.
