If you loved the old history channel, because of all the documentaries they use to show, check out youtube. They have hundreds of documentaries. Some were created by the history channel, BBC, etc.

It has really been a useful source for documentaries. Currently I'm watching "The Rise and Fall of Rome"

It's a 14 part series. Each episode it about 50 mimutes. I normally love reading, but I don't have as much time for it as I use to - so youtube allows me to get my history FIX in.

I also have watched the French Revolution, Charlemagne, And several others. I'm loving it!

Just because this thread is about watching things on YouTube (which is a great resource for older shows and documentaries) I thought I would post this...

Google introduces Chromecast, a $35 HDMI streaming solution for televisions (video)

Google just announced this the other day, it is called "Chromecast". It plugs into the HDMI slot on your TV and can then be controlled from a smartphone, computer or tablet and allows you to stream YouTube, Netflix, GooglePlay content and content from a Chrome browser directly to the TV. It uses your home wi-fi network, so the content isn't streamed through your device, you just use the device to control "Chromecast". The cost is only $35 which is amazingly cheap and a very convenient and easy way to get web content onto your TV. Instead of having to watch those shows on your computer or run cables to your TV, this will let you stream the content to any TV you want.

It also comes with three months of NetFlix for free. You can order it online or pick it up at Best Buy starting soon.
