UK mobile operator EE has released EE Film for Windows Phone and it's absolutely stunning. We don't tend to have many apps from the UK networks, but this is a given considering Orange (which is owned by EE) offers subscribers the opportunity to check latest movies in participating cinemas at a discounted price each and every Wednesday, coupled with other goodies.
Speaking of which, this is exactly what the EE Film app is for. Should you enjoy checking out the latest titles and take full advantage of the Orange / 4GEE Wednesday 2-for-1 deal, then you'll definitely need to have this app installed on your Windows Phone.
Trailers and local cinema information can be pulled and displayed. As well as movies and screenings, EE Film also lets users play films rented from the service while on the move. Just make sure your data plan (or substitute WiFi connection) has ample allowance for such content to be streamed. Luckily the app does sport offline playback, enabling the user to download the film before heading out.
Locating nearby cinemas is pretty straightforward and films are listed with screening times and convenient access to the Wednesday deal. As noted above, it's well worth checking out if you're a film buff.
As much as we'd love to continue bashing EE for obscene pricing and awful data limits on its data plans, the Film app for Windows Phone is stunning. Functionality is sound and provides enough features to get involved with the latest screenings and receiving 2-for-1 coupons. What's more is that you don't have to be an EE subscriber to be able to download the app. It's available for all Windows Phones.
You can download EE Film for free from the Windows Phone Store (listed as Windows Phone 8 only). Thanks, Kevin, for the tip!
