Because I put this in an io9 thread, I thought that I'd mirror over here for anyone without Netflix and for those looking for something else to watch: YouTube streams licensed copies of thousands of films. The majority are pay-per-view, but the "free" category link claims to offer more than a thousand for free.

For those within the US, Hulu also has some free movies, as does Crackle.


For Those Without Netflix - Part One: Sherlock streams via PBS.
