Why use Sundance Now?
On-demand streaming services like Netflix and Amazon amass enormous catalogs of content. They hope that everybody will find something to watch. Unfortunately, that means you have to wade through tons of content you don’t like in hopes of finding content you do like.
A streaming service like Sundance Now takes a different approach by curating a distinctive catalog of content that only appeals to certain tastes. If programs like Riviera or The Name of the Rose appeals to you, then you’ll want to subscribe to Sundance Now. Finding content worth watching becomes much easier when a service is designed to meet your particular tastes in TV, film and documentaries.
