SnagFilms brings you hundreds of indie movies, on demand, for free on Google TV

Guest to the Google TV blog, Gary Hahn, EVP of Marketing at SnagFilms, shares why their app is a great place to check out indie films.

What do you associate with “indie” movies? Unique? Free-spirited? Artsy? The word itself can mean different things to different people. Yet no matter what your association, Snagfilms is here to bring the independent films you want to watch straight to your living room through our new Google TV app (available only in the US).
Visit Snagfilms for Google TV and let us do what we do best - find you outstanding movies and compelling stories told by truly independent filmmakers. The vast library contains thousands of award-winners, festival favorites, and cult classics, most of which are difficult to find outside of festivals and art-house cinemas. Snagfilms is intuitive and easy to navigate as you browse our archives by genre or subject to find exactly what you love.
For example, check out A Fighting Chance, the incredible story of congenital amputee and athlete Kyle Maynard, who faces his greatest challenge in Mixed Martial Arts. Or Gamers, as you get to know the inside story of MMO Video games from players, critics, super fans and game designers. Krisis captures the Greek economic crisis from the perspective of 14 photojournalists and videographers. And in Biggie & Tupac, filmmaker Nick Broomfield takes an in-depth look at the death of two music icons.
So, regardless of what you like, Snagfilms will have something for you. Let the app take you beyond Hollywood blockbusters into a world of entertaining, passionate, and truly independent film.
If you’re in the US, you can find Snagfilms in the Spotlight section of Google TV.
