You can stop yelling at the TV screen; now there’s a slew of movie watchers out there that may want to hear your opinion. Lycos has enabled real-time chat for movie watchers everywhere.
Lycos Cinema will allow users to create password-protected Screening Rooms, where they can watch streaming video while chatting with others online. It’s like “Mystery Science Theater 3000”—except probably not that funny.
Don’t expect to find a ton of top-shelf selections. Probably the most regonizable title I could find in the 190 titles was perfect chat fodder, “Night of the Living Dead.”
Lycos expects to add more titles in the coming weeks.
Currently in beta
190 titles available
