FandangoNow on Portal TV will offer content curated by FandangoNow’s sister company, Rotten Tomatoes, a resource for entertainment recommendations. Fans will be able to peruse the “Best Movies of the Decade” and “Top Holiday Movies” according to the Tomatometer, “Rotten Christmas Movies We Love” as suggested by Rotten Tomatoes editors, and more.
FandangoNow also recently launched a movie and TV store on Facebook’s Oculus VR headsets, allowing Facebook audiences to build and access its library of movies and TV shows across the Facebook ecosystem.
