Our unique content attributes
Genre doesn’t tell the whole story. Through some very smart technology, you can see the ‘DNA’ of every title beyond genre (e.g. pace, intricacy, emotional punch, originality, and more) to really see what makes it tick.
Super-efficient taste test
You will be asked to take a < 2 min taste test which, through testing with tens of thousands of users, we have designed to be the quickest possible way to calculate your taste, likes and dislikes.
Everyone who takes the test is assigned both an entertainment personality, and also a detailed taste fingerprint that we hold for them in the background.
Quality distinct from taste
Just because something is highly rated doesn't mean YOU will like it. That's why for every title we calculate and show the quality score separately from your taste match.
The world already has lots of movie sites...
What problems do you solve?
We are facing three key problems in the entertainment space:
1. Overwhelming variety.
e.g. 1m movies/shows, >200 streaming providers, >130m books, >2m podcasts, >1m video games. All accessible instantly.
2. Our unique tastes and preferences are not accounted for.
Some services may say they are (I'm thinking one mammoth streaming service for instance), but either their technology isn't good enough, or they are not incentivised to provide great recommendations, and instead want to push the latest title from their catalogue.
3. We don't have hours to spend finding the perfect entertainment.
And when we do select something, we need to be sure that we will enjoy it, especially in the era of abundant TV shows which represent quite an investment both of time and potentially money.
Will I have to pay for this service?
Not to start with. You get two weeks for free, and then its 3.99 a month following that (or less if you pay annually). A small price to pay for getting back hours of your time each month!
This small contribution also allows us to cover some basic hosting fees and one or two developers so we can keep making boxlist better!
How many people are using boxlist?
Tens of thousands of users, across more than 80 countries. The majority are in the UK and the US, and the numbers are growing!
Is boxlist the finished article?
No. We're super-proud of what we've created, but it's improving all the time, and we'd love your help to make it better.
