If you are looking for the best movie streaming site in Sweden, I guarantee you that C More has come up at one point or another. As one of the most versatile streaming services in the world, C More is definitely a service worth looking into – especially if you love sports. But C More is not just some new streamer on the block. This company goes way back.
C More’s roots date all the way back to 1985, when the South African media company MultiChoice launched its Nordic version of Film Net. A decade later, the company followed up with Super Sport. In 1997, however, the channels were all renamed to Canal Plus; this took place upon MultiChoice selling most of its European assets to a French company known as Groupe Canal Plus. From thereon, the company that would eventually evolve into C More exchanged hands several additional times over.
In 2003, for instance, 2 private equity firms (Baker Capital and Nordic Capital) purchased 100% of Canal Plus Television. They acquired the company from the media conglomerate, Vivendi Universal. It was upon this acquisition that the company officially changed its name to C More Entertainment. C More, though, retained the rights to use the Canal Plus brand name and trademark.
It only took 2 years for C More Entertainment to be acquired by another company. On 9 February 2005, SBS Broadcasting Group made an official announcement declaring that they would be purchasing C More. This coincided with the launch of Video On-Demand (VOD) services for Belgian SBS TV channels VT4 and VIJFtv, which took place late in 2004. This would lay down the groundwork for the remarkable movie streaming site that we are taking a look at today, known simply as C More.
C More offers a very professional, sleek, and user-friendly design. Anybody who has used another movie streaming site before should find C More to be instantly intuitive; the layout is not all that different from the standard build of similar sites like Netflix and Hulu. At the top of the homepage, for instance, you will be greeted by an extra-large banner featuring a movie or TV show. If it looks good, simply click “play” to jump right in. Alternately, you can quickly add this title to your watchlist and continue browsing.
As you scroll down, you will find that the site continues to function in a fairly familiar fashion. Content is browsable by category, separated into several horizontally situated menus. Discover what to stream by newest releases, what is popular, or genre. One cool design quirk: as you scroll down, a menu of quick-filter genres will appear, enabling you to jump straightaway to precisely the kind of movie you are looking for. C More’s movie streaming section is on par, I would say, with even the best movie streaming sites on the market. But this site doesn’t merely stop there – you’ll see that it goes above and beyond when you begin to explore the rest of the site.
C More’s site is organized into 5 main categories, or 5 content types. Stream movies by clicking on the Film tab, of course, which we have just outlined. Or you can always transform this movie streaming site into a TV streaming site, a kids’ streaming site, a live TV streaming site, or a sports streaming site with the click of a mouse. Each section, too, is optimally designed to fit the content to which it caters.
When you click into the live TV portion of C More, for instance, there is a very convenient TV guide layout for easy browsing of what’s broadcasting now and what to tune into later. It’s intuitive to browse, and it feels just like you are channel surfing on your old-school cable box. Or, if you prefer, you can select from a list of available channels, which will differ depending on which plan you have.
Click on the Sports tab, on the other hand, and the format, once again, morphs to fit the content. Here, you will be able to browse by league, schedule, or sport. Never miss a game thanks to the built-in seasonal schedule.
Design wise, C More is definitely one of the best movie streaming sites on the web. It’s not just the perfectly designed movie streaming service, it offers multiple ideal designs and layouts for the myriad content streaming that this versatile service provides. No matter what or how you like to stream, C More will have you covered.
Content and Features
Speaking of C More’s diverse range of content and features-rich experience, this movie streaming site seems to just keep getting better and better the further into it I look. If you are looking for a streaming service that is fully prepared to cover all of your streaming needs, this might just be the best movie streaming site for you. In other words, C More does not stop at just movie streaming; they also let you stream live TV, on-demand TV series, and sports matches, too.
As far as C More’s movie selection goes, though, this may be the first letdown for some. Don’t get me wrong, C More’s film library isn’t terrible, not by any means. But this is the category that usually receives the highest number of complaints from customer reviews. And, to be frank, I do get where these users are coming from – compared to other comparable movie streaming sites on the market, I suppose it could be said that C More’s selection is, well, a little underwhelming.
You aren’t going to find the hottest new blockbuster movies available here. Nor does C More have much in the way of critically acclaimed or award-winning original content. There are, without a doubt, movie streaming sites out there that have more impressive film lineups. That being said, C More’s collection is nothing to roll your eyes at either. Enjoy big-name movies from some of the most popular movie studios in the world, including Harry Potter, Parasite, Vice, and Jordon Peele’s Us. Plus, there are new movies added regularly (sometimes several times a week).
As far as TV and sports are concerned, if you subscribe to the all-inclusive plan, C More offers access to 25 live streaming channels, including SVT1, SVT2, SVT24, all C More channels, and channels 4, 7, and 12. The sports package, too, includes 9 live-streaming sports channels that offer golf, basketball, tennis, table tennis, handball, ice hockey, football, and equestrian coverage.
C More truly is one of the best movie streaming sites available in Sweden – if only because few sites go the extra mile like this one. C More is so much more than your typical movie streaming site.
Mobile and Desktop Experience
Fans of mobile streaming will be happy to learn that C More does have native apps available for both iOS and Android devices. What’s more, they are both excellently designed and easy to use. As far as mobile movie streaming apps go, C More definitely offers one of the smoothest and dynamic user experiences that I have ever seen.
It would appear as if I am not alone in my assessment of this app either. On Google Play, the mobile app has an average user rating of 4.1 stars (out of 5). The main complaint that people seem to be having with the app is a language discrepancy, a bug that the developers allege to have addressed and fixed.
Pricings and Plans
C More offers 3 subscription levels to choose from. The main difference from 1 to the next concerns how much sports coverage you get alongside your TV series and movie streaming capabilities. The 3 plans are as follows:
C More TV4: SEK 139/month
2-week free trial period
Stream all movies and series on-demand
All TV4 programs without commercials
Access to 16 additional live TV channels
Check in on Big Brother 24/7
Loads of reality TV from Hayu
Very Sport: SEK 249
Everything from above package
LaLiga, Serie A, Liga NOS, MLS, Asian Football, and national team matches
Select international live sports
Select matches from SLH & Hockey Allsvenskan
All Sport: SEK 449
Comprehensive sports and entertainment package
Full international sports package
All SHL & Hockey Allsvenskan matches
So, as you can see, C More can be the best movie streaming site for the streamer on a budget, but it can also be one of the most comprehensive Swedish sports streaming services, too, if you are willing to splurge. My only beef with all of the 3 packages? None of the plans come with more than 2 simultaneous streams (2 screens at a time).
