UK Film Board's new website finds legal releases In an attempt to fight movie piracy the UK Film Council has set up a website aimed at helping consumers find legal content. has a simple form where you can simply enter a movie's title and find out what formats it's available in and where.
This is similar to a plan announced last year by the MPAA, although much broader in scope. Besides searching for titles, you can also use the website to locate movie theaters. There are also trailers available to watch.

Peter Buckingham, Head of Distribution and Exhibition at the UK Film Council who pioneered this new site says "This new site is going to transform how consumers find the films they want to watch - we will soon wonder how we ever coped without it! We have turned what was often an incredibly time-consuming, frustrating process into one that makes it much easier for film fans to see films in the UK. does exactly what it says on the tin and is the fastest place to find a film to watch in any format, if it's legally available in the UK."
