But there’s more.

Here’s some other online libraries with 1000’s of movies and shows that can be streamed online, either free or for a basic subscription of under $10/month. (cf. Beyond Netflix and Hulu: 4 worthwhile movie streaming services.)

SnagFilms – over 10,000 films, with large selection of documentaries, foreign and independent films for free [aside: SnagFilms changed its logo in June 2013]

Fandor – “In terms of the breadth and depth of the cinematic experience, it would be hard to beat Fandor. For $10 a month, you get access to hundreds of motion pictures, from rare, serious European features to educational shorts and the silliest exploitation flicks.”

Mubi – “Every day our experts introduce you to a film they love and you have a whole month to watch it, so there will always be 30 extraordinary films for you to enjoy.” // if you like their taste in films, they’ll pick ’em for you so you don’t have waste time browsing through 100s and 1000s of average movies to find a great one to watch

[update 12/14/16] Found 2 more: Popcornflix • Tubi TV
