Watch Studio Feature Films And TV Online For FREE!

Yes, there's more. I've already told you about sites where you can watch documentaries online for free as well as read magazines online, also for free. Now you can also watch feature-length studio films online for FREE! The site has been around for about a year, but I don't know if many people know about it. I've used it a few times, and been content with each experience, each time connecting my laptop to a digital projector and using my apartment wall as a screen. It works for me! was founded in March 2007 by NBC Universal and Murdoch's News Corp, so most, if not all the films available on the site are from the libraries of both media giants and their subsidiaries. The selection is still rather limited, which I guess should be expected, given how young the site is, and how ambivalent studios have been to make their prized products available on the web, whether for free or at a cost. And it's a business model that I think still isn't well understood. As expected, while the screenings are free, there are commercials about every 15 minutes - but each break was often no more than about 15 seconds... at most 30 seconds, so, I was able to tolerate them, and I think you will too.

Some worthwhile films you can watch for FREE on the site right now include: 28 Days Later, Men In Black, the original Casino Royale (1967), Lost In Translation, The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three (The original 1973 version. Denzel Washington is starring in a remake currently in production with a 2009 release date scheduled), Sideways, Requiem For A Dream, Hollywood Shuffle, Groundhog Day, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, amongst many others.

You can also watch television shows dating back to the 60s; I've especially had fun seeing some of my favorites from childhood, like Different Strokes, Fantasy Island, The A-Team and Alf!

So head on over to right now! I'm sure you'll find something you like.
