New York - A new movie site is offering discounts for the online friends of viewers.
Flickme offers about a third of its 1,000 movies with a "sharable discount."
One user watches a movie for $3.99 for new films or $2.99 for older ones, and that user can recommend the film to up to 10 friends on Facebook or Twitter.
Those users then pay only $1.49. Films from Warner Brothers and Sony Pictures are among the site's offerings.
