I'm looking for recommendations for streaming movies at home. Not Netflix -- their selection of movies is terrible. My TV provider has access to several on-demand services and I'm considering that as one option, but I'm unsure exactly how those work. Any other ideas?

Amazon.com has really good selection of streaming movies.

I use FilmStruck. You can sign up for a free trial. I chose the FilmStruck + Criterion Collection and pay $99 for a year. So far on this year's watching - I've watched 126 films - that comes out to $1.27 a film (right now) - and my year runs out in November 2018 - so the price per film will go down. I never run out of films to watch. And I never say never.

I still have a lot of dvds, and watch them every now and then. I used to exclusively watch them on my dvd player / t.v., but now I pop them into my computer. I used to be against streaming movies - but have found that I see a lot more detail and notice things that I've been missing by seeing them up close on the pc monitor. It was a revelation, for me.

If you have Roku and that site is not one of the ones already on their devices, you can add the HTTP address and create your own link I believe and watch on larger screen...
I think linking computers to flatscreens via HDMI creates a lag
