THIS CHANNEL IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE IN THE ROKU CHANNEL STORE.
ROKUGUIDE REVIEW: Inmoo brings over a hundred feature-length films from independent producers to the Roku, and there's no charge to subscribe to this channel. Roku Inmoo is an offshoot of Inmoo.com, which boasts thousands of movies. Even though the initial Roku offering is only a fraction of that, the movies are high-quality in both production standards and Roku delivery.
I had hoped that the number of available films would have increased since the time that I wrote a channel review when Inmoo first launched two months ago. However, the number of films has actually decreased in many of the genres, although this may be due to the removal of titles that did not play. The genres and numbers of listed movies are:
- Comedy (28 movies)
- Crime (2 movies)
- Documentary (11 movies)
- Drama (63 movies)
- Family (0 movies)
- Foreign (4 movies)
- GLBT (0 movies)
- Horror (11 movies)
- Other (3 movies)
- Romance (9 movies)
- Sci-Fi (5 movies)
- Sports (1 movie)
- Suspense (6 movies)
- Teen(1 movie)
- Thriller (17 movies)
- War (4 movies)
I've listed the number of unique titles within each genre. Many titles are listed 2, 3, and even 4 times under the same genre.
In addition to the Genres category, there is a Shorts category with four films, a Festivals category that is empty, and a Featured category.
It's disappointing that such a small portion of Inmoo's inventory is available on the Roku, and even more disappointing that the channel doesn't appear to be getting updated (or even maintained judging by the glitch causing duplicate title listings). It's worth adding the Inmoo channel to your Roku lineup, but after you've watched everything that appeals to you, you will probably end up deleting the channel if no further updates are made.
