    I went to look for a Netflix movie yesterday on the "Matcha" app on my iPad and the application wouldn't work. Thinking that I may have a connection problem, I checked on the internet only to find that "Matcha" is no longer in operation and the "Matcha" app is not available in the Apple App Store. :(

    Wonder what happened to "Matcha"? Any really good alternatives for searching for Netflix (and other) movies?

    The Netflix app?

    And though my breife test showed it less than 100% accurate, the Can I Stream? it app.

    Thanks for the suggestion, "twerppot". Will give "Can I Stream It?" a try.

    You're welcome. Please let us know how useful you find it.

    It tells me that I can stream the Star Wars movies from Hulu Plus, but in reality all I can stream are clips, and those after being directed to a third site. However, that's a single example, so I'm not sure how it is overall.

    I noticed the app wasn't working either and was just gone from the App Store so I went to their website and they have discontinued all service for matcha. See the following screen shot. Such a bummer I loved that app... image.jpg

    "Something better"?? I still don't understand why they shut down the application with absolutely no notice. It's all about money, I'm sure. Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see if they can come up with a better "mousetrap."
