Sometimes one channel will update, but the others won't.

I watched it Joachim, I can tell you the ending if you want :P

I'll probably add a "user timezone" setting, so films that can't be watched in your timezone won't show up. It will be UTC by default and users can override that.

Hey there, thanks for your continued interest. I've been getting some other work done, but I should be able to push some new updates next week. I will announce them here as well as in the Twitter and Subreddit.

Amazing! Thanks for posting toromash. Strangely, the first film for me is already leaving in seven days (Haneke's Seventh Continent), yet it's not one of the films in my regular 30-day list. I would have missed all of these completely.

Looks like I only get 17 of the 20 here, but I'm really looking forward to catching some of them. I wonder how long all of them will be available, of if they're (semi-)permanent additions to the library.

Here are the films selected (except the 3 I don't have access to; I find it a pity in that these specials, Mubi doesn't list all of the films, so you never know what you're missing):
The Seventh Continent (Haneke 1989 AUT) - Saw on Mubi last year during a Haneke special.
**Germany Year Zero (Rossellini 1948 ITA) - Looking forward to it.
India Song (Duras 1975 FRA) - Been putting this off forever, but I don't know why. Maybe I'll get to it this time.
The Terrorizers (Yang 1986 TWN) - Saw it for World Cup.
Metropolitan (Stillman 1990 USA) - I think they showed this and I missed it, so glad to get another chance to see it.
Horse Money (Costa 2014 POR) - It's mentioned a fair bit on the forum, so I'll give it a go.
A Moment of Innoncence (Makhmalbad IRN 1996) - Seen it.
No Home Movie (Akerman 2015 BEL) - Not too keen on Akerman, and maybe not the best film to start delving into her work with.
Love Meetings (Pasolini 1964 ITA) - Looks interesting.
M (Zauberman 2018 FRA) - Saw this on Mubi last year; I strongly recommend this doc.
The Perfumed Nightmare (Tahimik 1977 PHL) - Seen it.
Rapado (Rejtman 1992 ARG) - They did a mini-special of Retjman films last year, but didn't include his debut, so glad to get to see it.
Invasion (Santiago 1969 ARG) - Looking interesting.
**The Jester (Morais 1987 POR) - I might give it a go since it's official.
**Charles, Dead or Alive (Tanner 1969 SUI) - Ditto.
In the Name of Christ (M'Bala 1993 CIV) - I'll see this one; Côte d'Ivoire is a country that I haven't seen anything from yet.
Land of Fire All Night Long (Klopfenstein & Legnazzi 1981 SUI) - I might catch it if I have time.

The ones with ** are Golden Leopard Winners.

np, for some reason the seventh continent is not available for me, but i have seen it anyway, when they had their Haneke special. For others, remember not to have native audio/subtitles on your library set on as this will remove almost every film from this catalogue (unless your native language is english).

I received the email about it today. At the end it says "Find this special series in LIBRARY through the end of August." So in theory they should be available all month long.

@d3ver:
Could you set the first filter at "All films" by default instead of "Now showing"? I always forget to change that filter. I want to see everything first. When I want to narrow down, I want to do that myself.

Yeah I could do that, but that would include films for rent. As a temporary solution, you could bookmark this URL until I make the change / figure out a better solution: onmu.bi/all

Yeah, onmu.bi is just a short domain for the site. Do you think switching the default to all films (including the rent films) is a good idea ?

Any idea how many of the 2859 are only available for rent and not "Now showing" or "Library"?
If it's a small percentage, I'd say switch to "All" by default.

Why didn’t I check immediately? Pretty easy.
So yes, switch to all by default.

Alright, sounds good. When the films are only available for rent, they show the price. Maybe I should highlight that better somehow. Will switch the default setting soon 👌

Or have another option like "included in Premium" that groups Library and Now Showing together?

My bookmarked page is https://whatsonmubi.com/?showing=my&sort=expires-asc showing only the Now Showing films in Malaysia, sorted by when the leave (leaving today at the top). Since there are 4 channels here, it works perfectly for me that each row has 4 films :D

Done. Switched default catalogue to 'all' with 'Date found descending' as the default sorting.

I think something changed d3ver. Now on that list there are only 37 films instead of 120.

And if I just look at the main channel, there are only 8 films instead of 30.

Should be fixed now, not sure what happened with the scraper there 🤔. Thank you for reporting the issue!

PS: Dekho! channel seems to only have 15 films now, not sure if it was always the case ?

Huh, you're right. I hadn't noticed. I suspect that they're going to phase out that channel then, since most of the Indian films they've shown are now available in the library. The rest are mostly modern Bangladeshi films without subtitles, and they've been adding them on repeat to the channel lately.

I'm often surprised how many zero check movies are on MUBI. In some countries often even movies that are not on IMDb yet.

Fergy, this movie is only available in Malaysia. Any idea if it could be available in some other country nearby you, which isn't scraped by d3ver? My VPN doesn't have Malaysia.

Did you check Singapore? I think you said before you had access to that.

The other countries that I would suggest all are listed on d3ver's site but don't appear to be listed for that film, which is odd since it's streaming in the Sinema section covering Southeast Asia, so if you have access to Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar, or Philippines, it should show under those countries too. I think d3vey only scrapes the extra channels for Malaysia because of me (thanks d3vey!) but those channels should be available for those countries too. Other than that, Cambodia, Laos, Brunei, and possibly East Timor should have it as well. It's also part of this special: https://mubi.com/specials/the-best-of-thai-movies

I see Allison posted a few months ago that it's available on Netflix. I just checked and it's also there for me, so if you can't find any country to watch it in on Mubi, perhaps try Netflix next?

It's not showing in Singapore unfortunately and I haven't got any of the other countries you mentioned. No Netflix account in my house as well.
Thanks for trying anyway.

What's on MUBI says "Sympathy for the Devil" (1968) is showing in France (expires in 5 days), but when I go to MUBI (VPN in France) it says it's not showing currently.

@Fergy, are you sure those other countries should have those channels?

My VPN-client just had an update and I now have Vietnam, Philippines and Cambodia as well. I went to all of those, shutter wasn't available. I didn't see any channels. When I go to India, I can see two channels (world and India), so I know where to look and it seems MUBI it correctly checking my VPN country.

Whatsonmubi says it's available in the library here in the Netherlands, but I can't watch it. There's no play-button. Just tried in Ireland as well, but not there too. Anything going wrong? Makes me wonder how reliable the "unlimited" note is.

Mubi Support finally got back to me. Turns out my assumption was wrong. :D
Mubi Support wrote:You are correct, we watch very closely to see what content and channels are most popular with our members and make sure to provide the best possible curated content experience. Overall we saw that DEKHO was not as appealing as our other channel offerings, so we made the decision to close that channel and focus more on making the other three (SINEMA, BOO, and WORLD) even better.

Yes, the Boo and Sinema channels are unique to the programming in Malaysia. You can stream and download movies on MUBI in over 250 countries around the world. Every country has its own unique line-up, as the rights to show even a single film are often divided by different distributors and territories, making it very difficult to show the same movies in every country at once. This in turn allows us to tailor each country's selection for the local audience.
I'm curious as to what they consider a country, though, since there definitely aren't "over 250" of them :lol:

Somehow there are loads of movies disappearing in the next couple of days. Too many to keep up with. Normally I can watch all official checks available in all countries. That normally adds up to one movie every two days. Now it's 3-5 movies a day for the next couple of days. I guess I have to choose.

Four official checks I haven't seen yet will expire after tomorrow (Nov 1st). I'm watching Capernaum right now, which was on my watchlist so that was an easy choice. I think I can squeeze in one more movie of the other three. Which should I pick?

I wonder if the high number of films leaving coincides with the end of the month, and if that will happen regularly.

As for which film to pick, based solely on availability elsewhere, I would choose Dügün as I think it would be the most difficult to find: it's older, requires subtitles, and not as widely seen. Plus, it's only 84 minutes so it won't be too long if it's absolutely terrible :D

I will, it's on the roadmap. I haven't been able to dedicate too much time to the site lately, been a bit busier. But I'm hoping to tackle the few bugs that remain and the feature requests very soon. I'll update you guys here whenever I push an important update. :cheers:
