Miramax has launched what is reportedly the largest-scale Facebook streaming movie app yet, expanding on the model tried previously by Paramount and Universal, paidContent.org reports.

The Miramax eXperience went live with 20 titles available for rent in the U.S., along with 10 titles in the U.K. and 10 in Turkey, according to the report. France and Germany were expected to be added to the rollout soon.

Among the titles are “Chicago,” “Cold Mountain” and “Good Will Hunting,” all of which are available in all three markets. In the U.S. only, among the additional titles are “No Country for Old Men” and “Pulp Fiction.”

“Facebook users can rent the films for 30 Facebook credits, the equivalent of $3; the rental is active for 30 days but the viewing window is 48 hours once you start to watch,” the story reports.

Movies rented on Facebook can be viewed on iPad and on Google TV, the report adds.
