The Joyn streaming service also features new films and series every month. Read the complete program for the month of March on TECHNOLOGY BUTTON.
Joyn or Joyn Plus + is a joint German project of the media groups ProSiebenSat.1 Media and Discovery. Compared to competitors such as Netflix, the streaming service is still quite young: the platform was launched in 2019. Mainly the content of the participating broadcasters can be seen, similar to the media libraries of the public broadcasters . Within a very short time, however, films and series also appeared explicitly on the streaming service that no longer necessarily ran on television in advance. So-called Joyn Originals or Exclusives have long been available – own productions or external ones, but which appear exclusively at Joyn. Joyn is the direct successor to 7TV, and the video-on-demand portal Maxdome was also launched in 2020 integrated into the service. Much of the content at Joyn is free, but some now require a subscription, called Joyn Plus +. In this article you will find the novelties on Joyn and Joyn + with an assessment of the highlights.

Pain & Gain (from March 1st)

Grandiose with Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Anthony Mackie, everything goes wrong on the mission that can go wrong.
Ex Machina (from March 11th)
The young programmer Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) is asked by his boss to put the secretly developed android Ava (Alicia Vikander) to a test. However, he quickly builds an emotional bond with her and he decides to flee with her. In this way he wants to prevent their threatened reprogramming. However, the AI transplanted into Ava is now really more human than first assumed – and thus driven by its own wishes.
