Several online movie sites were mentioned this weekend in the New York Times:
Apparently, these sites have movies that you can’t get on DVD or Netflix. I haven’t played around with them yet. They do cost money and according to the articles they often have their own proprietary software to watch movies on your computer (sooprise). But I do like the idea of being able to access obscure movies. They sometimes are the more interesting ones to me.
Info is in the following NYT articles. I think you need to be an online subscriber to read these.
