Sundancing at home — and on the web (1/12/2013):
"For the first time, Sundance has partnered with New York-based GoWatchIt, a web service for listing which movies you want to be alerted about. When users go to the online Sundance Film Festival movie guide, each film now has a 'Watch It' button. Click on that, and you can add the movie to a queue. The free GoWatchIt service will then send you a notification on your phone when that movie begins playing at a theater near you or on a movie-streaming service you subscribe to such as Netflix or Hulu. This feature is also available on Sundance’s mobile phone app. On the app, the user can shoot a picture of the movie’s poster to put that movie in the GoWatchIt queue. 'It’s like sending yourself a reminder,' said Joseph Beyer, director of digital initiatives for the Sundance Institute. 'It’s the latest, greatest thing that sofware and technology can let us do.'"

Here’s a Movie App That’ll Win the Hearts of Hollywood and Film Lovers Alike (9/7/2012):
"It might turn out that GoWatchIt’s greatest value is in recognizing that digital platforms don’t always have to undercut the movie industry and can instead make it better and more efficient. That way, studios still get to make money, consumers get to watch their films however they like, and we all live happily ever after."

Roger Ebert Gives Thumbs Up to Watch It: "Makes sense to me." (2/9/2012):
"[Roger Ebert's] page will initially focus on Oscar titles, but Ebert says he'll continue to update his channel after the awards. 'It's useful for the obvious reason,' Ebert wrote in an email conversation with Indiewire. 'You don't have to search several sites to find out if a movie is available On Demand. One-stop searching. Makes sense to me.'"

Forbes - Social Movies: Three Start-Ups That Might Boost Hollywood's Box-Office Prospects (1/27/2012):
"Watch It is an app that allows you to log your intention for seeing that movie and also share that intent with friends. The friends, in the meantime, may have learned of a new movie from you and also log that intent. Once the movie is out, everyone who wanted to see it is notified . . . [CEO David Larkin] sees potential in several directions with the idea. Not only is it a consumer app that could be highly valued, it could aggregate intent for both theaters and distributors."

The New York Times - Award Time For Ideas That Shine - State of the Art (12/28/2011):
"At Gowatchit.com, you can find out right now where, how and if a movie is available with one quick search. You can also ask to be notified when it becomes available. (Why aren’t all movies available through all channels? The movie companies these days must have some irrational fear of giving the customers what they want.)"

In the big picture, Plexus’ goal is to connect films and filmmakers with their audiences, so to do that, they’ve launched “Watch It” in public beta to allow users to keep track of movies they’re interested in, where those movies are playing, and to be proactively notified of all the different ways to view those films. Huzzah!"
