Youzee: Spain’s streaming startup answer to Netflix
A new streaming service has shed its beta cloak, only this one isn’t made for U.S. eyes. Youzee, a Madrid-based start-up, aims to offer Spaniards the best of both pay models, offering up a monthly subscription service alongside separate à la carte pricing. According to the company’s site, its catalog of films and TV shows will be made available in a range of dubbed and subtitled versions to suite language and viewing preferences. You’ll have to pony up 6.99 Euros (about $9 USD) monthly for access to those selections, but for any titles — new releases or otherwise — that reside outside of its collection, there’s a one-time fee required, ranging from either 2.99 Euros (about $4 USD) for 480p DVD-quality or 4.99 Euros (about $7 USD) for 720p HD. Plans are also on deck to grow the outfit’s content library of paid content with an assortment of free exclusives. So, if you call the Iberian peninsula home and the return of the Bluths on Netflix just isn’t enough to tide you over, well, now you have an alternative online video fix.
