Branding and Linking to JustWatch

Each partner is required to integrate branded links to the JustWatch website. Please find below an integration guide on how to link to JustWatch:

  • Branded Link should be displayed on the page next to every widget / “where to watch” integration and every page where the widget is displayed
  • The link should lead to the country specific sub-folder with the target film or tv show (https://www.justwatch.com/us/movie/the-pianist)
  • The anchor text should be “JustWatch” with JustWatch wrapped in a img tag with alt text containing “JustWatch”
  • We prefer the JustWatch logo to be in gold, but black or white is fine as well (depending on the background)
  • This CodePen has an example of how the title page link should look like:
