AMC Networks announced the launch of their new streaming movie service YEAH (YeahTV.com), which is unlike any other streaming service on the market.

A trailer has been released for the service, along with a video featuring director Kevin Smith explaining how it works. Check out the videos, then read the press release for all the official details.
AMC Networks, which owns and operates AMC, IFC, Sundance Channel, WE tv and IFC Films, announces the launch of YEAH! YEAHTV.com, the first streaming movie service that is an entirely new way to watch movies online. Each YEAH! film is enhanced with interactive features including 400-500 individual pieces of original content curated from in-depth research. The new bonus content is displayed on-screen seamlessly without obscuring the movie, offering fans a choice of unique extras to engage with such as:
- Intimate, never-before-seen, exclusive interviews with filmmakers and stars - with just a click the movie pauses and the interview plays
- Little-known facts about characters and scenes minute-by-minute throughout each film
- Quizzes that test how well you really know your favorite movies
