Metamenu is your mobile companion for over 100,000 TV & movies. You can use with a standard remote, or connect to our smart remote service.

If you've ever considered "where else have I seen that actor?" or "what year was this film made?" then get Metamenu, and get the facts, fast and friendly--Metamenu gives instant details on cast, crew, notes, similar titles and more. Facebook users can tap-to-text and send movie information to friends without even typing.

Mac and Blu-ray Smart Remote

Optionally, use a Mac to play your DVDs, and get even more:

Gestures. Flick your device to navigate the onscreen menus, or drag-and-tap our natural replacement to the traditional 5-button compass.
"Playlist" Direct Jumps. Bypass onscreen menus and jump directly to the scene you want. Every feature on the disc is instantly available, with no need to invoke onscreen menus.
TouchTracks™. A second screen of rich information running along with the movie, combined with powerful remote navigation. Did you miss what an actor said? No problem, drag backward on the timeline to read the dialog. Another tap to start the movie from that spot. You'll love the unparalleled control over the experience. (many movies are still being indexed, the amount of TouchTrack data available varies per title.)


+ Details on cast, discography, cover art and actor headshots on over 100,000 film and television titles (delivered by Netflix).
+ NOTICE: If you plan to use in "companion" mode only, turn OFF the Remote Control setting in the opening screen.
