they'll throw in a free month.

well, they downgraded the freebie to two weeks and I bit.
it's bitchin'. they already schnookered me into a paid month. It'll be easy to get 11 bucks worth for me.
I don't have very many Criterion DVD's - I always try to hit their 50% off sales but I can never really narrow it down to the one title I can afford.

the channel has the commentaries and some docs & series that seem like they are exclusive to the channel. As you might expect, the main feature is their marvelous library of films - the picture and audio quality seem to nearly always be outstanding.

I watched Errol Morris talking about why he liked "The Manchurian Candidate" so much and it was fascinating. He looks like a character in one of his own early documentaries.

like HBO GO it would appear that the bulk of the library is available from month to month. I better get cracking because I really shouldn't spend 11 dollars on a fucking movie channel again next month.

I find that the greater the selection that I've got, the less I watch. A whole month can easily go by, where I don't watch a single thing on a paid subscription channel. Not to mention the free streaming services And no, Criterion still hasn't arrived here, but when it does... oh boy, I'll need 48 hours in a day.
