The number of streaming services that we’re subscribed to these days can be hard to manage. We don’t even bother to check the homepage, let alone the content depth of a platform. Most of us fall prey to the bandwagon and stick to watching what’s popular. A friend suggested ‘Chernobyl’, Ok. A friend suggested ‘Modern Family’, Ok. Fast forward two months and we’re just done watching 4-5 series and that’s about it. We don’t take the efforts to dive deep into the service that we’re actually paying for.
Here’s where streaming guides come in handy. These websites help you find all the content that is available on your platform. Using the search function and browsing on streaming guides, you’ll get to know if a particular title is on your streaming site or not. I wanted to binge-watch MCU and I realized that I will need to subscribe to Disney+. However, little did I know that after the Hotstar Disney merger, I can actually find the Disney movies and TV shows on Hotstar itself.
Thus today we’ll be reviewing one such streaming guide that provides you legitimate information as to where you can stream your favorite movies and TV shows. This website is called Chilimovie. As opposed to the free streaming websites, this platform is a streaming guide where you can learn about various titles and how to stream them.
What is Chilimovie?
Chilimovie is a streaming guide that provides users with information relating to movies and tv shows. It provides you information on how to watch content using streaming services. There are many premium services that provide a one-month free trial and thus Chilimovie will provide you with all the details. Apart from streaming information, you can even watch movies and tv show trailers and catch up with other information regarding a title.
Chilimovie has a massive fan following in Europe. Its user base has surpassed the 2 million mark with the majority of its audience from Italy, Austria, Germany, Poland, and the UK. The number of subscribers shows the massive influence that this platform has over its audience.
Giorgio Tacchia is the man behind Chilimovie. The brand started as a local streaming service back in 2012 catering to the needs of the Italian audience. However, on his frequent visits to Silicon Valley, Tacchia coupled his decades of experience in Media & TV with excellent engineers back at the Valley and came up with this unique platform. Ever since its launch, Chili has gone on from strength to strength receiving the backing of popular Hollywood Studios including the likes of Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, Viacom, and 20th Century Fox.
These major studios were so impressed by the platform that all of them became shareholders which propelled Chili to greater heights. Today, Chili is one of the most remarkable media libraries providing unrivaled entertainment information about various streaming services.
Why should you stream on Chilimovie?
Claiming that Chilimovie is a Netflix rip-off would be unjust. In certain areas, this streaming guide manages to outdo Netflix. But that’s not the only impressive element of this website. There are quite a few fascinating aspects that I’d like to share with you.
There are plenty of movies that are available for free. Though they are still the property of their respective owners, there are many platforms where you can stream the movies for free. Chilimovie helps you find such movies along with other premium titles. Movies such as ‘The Matrix’, ‘The Avengers’, ‘The Dark Knight’, ‘Revenge’, ‘Murder on the Orient Express’, ‘Inception’, ‘Mission Impossible’ are all available for free on Amazon Prime Video. Just these star-studded list of blockbusters can make signing up on Amazon Prime to be fruitful.
In-depth streaming information
I’ve never seen a more captivating inner page on any website. There’s a slideshow banner that moves in the upward direction in B/W combination. Other than the immersive banner, you’ll find crucial information such as the ‘Title’, ‘Synopsis’, ‘Cast’, ‘Director’, ‘Streaming Platform’, ‘Trailers’, ‘Cast Information’ and Cast related other movies. Each section has been designed beautifully and a user can find all the data packaged within an intricate design.
Wide range of genres
Chilimovie offers information regarding movies and tv shows from a wide range of genres. You can browse content by choosing a wide range of genres such as ‘Action’, ‘Adventure’, ‘Animation’, ‘Comedy’, ‘Crime’, ‘Documentary’, ‘Drama’, ‘Family’, ‘Fantasy’, ‘History’, ‘Horror’, ‘Music’, ‘Mystery’. ‘Romance’, ‘Science Fiction’, ‘TV Movie’, ‘Thriller’, ‘War’ and ‘Western’.
It’s funny but I really seem to like the ad banners on the website. The custom-designed Amazon Prime banners really immerse in the overall content offering. Instead of looking wayward, they add up to the aesthetics of the website. For this particular website, the black and the red color combination really blend well with the logo and the other CTA options. Moreover, the red accents under various content buckets give the banners a distinctive look.
How to access Chilimovie?
There are multiple ways in which you can stream Chilimovie. 1. You can search for the term ‘Chilimovie’ in your search engine and you’ll likely find the result on the first page. 2. You can use the following link: ‘Chilimovie’ to access the website directly. Though there are no problems with this platform, I’d still recommend you to use a VPN when browsing to protect your identity, data, and device.
The overall layout of this website, especially the inner page is jaw-dropping. The little details and the intricate design elements help the website to stand out. I can easily suggest that this is by far my favorite streaming guide on the internet. It’s really worth bookmarking.
The header section of the website has the logo on the left along with four options at the center – ‘Home’, ‘Movies’, ‘TV Shows’, and ‘Free Movies’. Among these options, Movies and TV Shows have a drop-down menu. Under each section, you’ll find ‘Browse’, and ‘Browse by Genre’ options. Towards the right, you have a search bar using which you can find any content directly. Besides that, you’ll find a ‘CTA’ affiliate ad ‘Unlimited Streaming with Prime Video’.
The hero section has an immersive banner on the left along with thumbnails on the right. There are three categories of thumbnails – ‘New Amazon Original’, ‘New Series Exclusive’, and ‘In-theater Buy/Rent’. I’d like to point out that though the banner is static and isn’t the traditional full-scale slider banner, I really love the compact design approach in this section.
The body section of Chilimovie is filled with thumbnails. You can find 6 thumbnails in each row under various content categories. As you keep scrolling, you’ll find buckets such as ‘Top Streaming Movies’, ‘Popular TV Shows’, ‘Reality TV Shows’, and ‘Favorite Anime’. You’ll find blockbuster movies in each of these categories. (We’ll discuss these in the content section below).
The inner pages on the website especially the streaming is my favorite page on the website. The vertical slideshow banner along with a vertical thumbnail on the left form the framework on this page. Rest is all-important content including the Title, Seasons & Episodes, Trailer, Screenshots, Top Credited Cast | Crew, and related suggestions. If you have free time, I’d certainly recommend you check out this page so you can appreciate quality UI/UX.
It has an impressive content library filled with information about thousands of movies and tv show titles. You can choose from a wide range of genres such as ‘Action’, ‘Adventure’, ‘Animation’, ‘Comedy’, ‘Crime’, ‘Drama’, ‘Fantasy’, ‘Family’, ‘Horror’, ‘Romance’, ‘Sci-Fi’, and ‘Thriller’.
I really love the ‘Similar Content’ recommendation. For instance, I clicked on the Walking Dead and the website recommended shows such as ‘The Furious Yama’, ‘The Passage’, ‘Black Summer’, ‘Castle Rock’, and ‘Titans’. This shows the extent to which machine learning is being harnessed to improve the user interaction on the website.
The overall content layout really blends well with the theme and color combination. The clever use of gradients, thumbnails, content alignment, and CTA buttons all makes up for great browsing and navigation experience. The moment you step on to the website, you’ll realize that it’s not a work of an individual developer. The premium vibes that you get on this platform are truly unmatched.
Suggestions I have for Chilimovie
The only thing that this website lacks, in my opinion, is the sorting feature based upon the Release year. Using the release year, you can find the top movies from that particular year. So whether you want to watch ‘The Godfather’ or ‘Goodfellas’, ‘Titanic’ or ‘Wolf of Wall Street’, you can do so by choosing the year. Not only will you find the desired title but also the top movies from that year. So, that is my only suggestion to the developers.
If you’re looking for a captivating movie or tv show browsing experience, Chilimovie is the streaming guide you’ve been looking for. The fascinating use of design elements with content and machine learning has led to the birth of this incredible platform.
