Hello Product Hunters, and thanks @kwdinc for hunting Scoop!

We built Scoop for very selfish reasons; while I was a student, I would scope out and attend test screenings for movies. They were free and chancing upon a great movie well before release date was a sense of immense pride.

Once I started working in the film and TV industry I realized that they were only testing their content in Los Angeles as they couldn't do online testing for piracy reasons. We spent a few years fine tuning our security and launched Scoop recently.

We've had great initial success with some Sundance films and some of the largest production companies and studios in the world using our security and testing products.

I should mention that there is a lag between signing up and actually receiving a film or show. Once you signup we wait for a film or show that's looking to test with your demographic profile - once there is a match, we send you an NDA and a link. It might be a few days or weeks before you receive an invite, but you can trust us that you will.

Thanks for checking out Scoop. We're kicked to hear your thoughts! :)

Historically, a few months before a film is getting ready for release, the studio tests it out in a theater in Los Angeles. Scoop has built a secure screener platform so they don't have to test it in one corner of the world, but can test the film out anywhere in the world to get a broader reach.

Now if you like early access to movies and love critiquing them, you can do it from the comfort of your couch. 🎬 🎥 📺

Ooooo nice! Signed up

Have a feeling the selection process is rather picky though - can we get some insight on that?

Quick Question @Sharanr: I would imagine that the individual data + email addresses of movie lovers would be even more valuable for studios than having people preview and rate their films. What are your commitments around privacy/marketing for those who sign up for Scoop? Will this data be sold?

such a brilliant idea. i just hope they got serious safeguards for not having the files hacked or pirated
