Ça alors! Fans of original-language international mystery and drama programs, you can now get your Euro TV on whenever you like with the brand new MHz International Mystery On Demand service. Chouette!
MHz Networks has just launched the public beta program for its new video-on-demand service, MHz International Mystery On Demand, which is available for US-based viewers. Access at this time is through the Roku only, with iOS, Android, Smart TV, and Google TV being added in the near future.
Similar to other VOD services, MHz International Mystery On Demand lets you purchase a single episode or the entire season of the available Euro TV shows, and watch it in perpetuity and at your convenience on telly or other platforms that MHz supports.
(Note that the above does not apply to MHz titles that you have purchased elsewhere, and you cannot download any of the MHz International Mystery On Demand programs.)
Euro TV series available now — shown in their original language with English subtitles — include the following:
- Finnish: Vares
- French: Blood of the Vine, Maigret, Spiral
- German: Commissario Guido Brunetti Mysteries
- Italian: A Case of Conscience, Detective De Luca, Don Matteo, Fog and Crimes, The Homicide Squad, Inspector Coliandro, Inspector Nardone, The Inspector Vivaldi Mysteries, The Vanishing of Patò
- Swedish: Anno 1790, Beck, Irene Huss, Maria Wern, Those in Power, Van Veeteren, Wallander (Krister Henriksson), Wallander (original with Rolf Lassgård)
Also available is the English-language series East West 101 from Australia, and more series will be added in the coming weeks.
Once you’ve signed up with MHz International Mystery On Demand, you also get to watch new titles on the service before they are made available to non-MHz outlets, such as Amazon Instant Video, Hulu, Netflix, and Vudu.
To sign up online, visit the MHz International Mystery On Demand page. Once your registration is complete, you’ll receive an email with a link for the Roku channel and detailed instructions on how to install it on your Roku. Then, all from within the Roku channel, you can browse the program offerings, buy episode(s) or season(s) with the credit card on file, and watch instantly.
And while MHz International Mystery On Demand is in public beta, you have the opportunity to provide feedback and help improve the service for your and others’ viewing pleasure.
