BFI updates its movie streaming service with more films and a new look

As video streaming increases in popularity, providers need to do all they can to stand out from their rivals. Now just over a year old, the British Film Institute (BFI) has decided to give BFI Player, its own movie offering, a little spring clean. The new version sports a flat, streamlined design with large movie stills across the homepage. The BFI has also added a raft of new movies from Universal Pictures, including E.T and Back to the Future, bringing its total catalog to 1,400 titles (up from just over 1,000 at launch). The on-demand service doesn't require a monthly subscription, instead offering a mixture of free and paid-for movies with a 30-day viewing window. To help you get more from its growing library, the Institute has introduced curated collections, which currently cover sci-fi and cult cinema hits. You'll also be able to create your own in the near future, if making lists is your thing.
