IMDB has movies and TV now

The IMDB is hosting movies and TV. If the expanding collection doesn't yet do it for you, there's always, or, for your silent film needs, plain old youtube.

Over the years, I've seen a lot of goofy old 'educational' films, but I've never seen anything quite as jaw-droppingly jaw dropping as Perversion For Profit. Wowza.

Reiterated: Perversion For Profit needs to be seen.

Looks like Hulu to me.

Tried following some of the "Featured TV Episodes" links, none of 'em worked.

That was in regards to the IMDB link, by the way. Movies Found Online seems like a nice resource though.

Ummm ... aren't they just embedding Hulu windows?

I was under the impression they had some stuff not on Hulu, but I'm not certain.

I've found Sidereel to have a lot more than what's available on Hulu. Cinemawiki is pretty good for movies, although, like youtube, stuff gets pulled once the copyright owner gets wind of it.

I do have a personal interest in IMDb over hulu. That said, hulu has some clips IMDb doesn't (licensing) but IMDb has CBS's current TV shows too. Hulu's mostly NBC. IMDb also has a bunch of older TV shows like Partridge Family, Benson, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie that they host themselves. And about 800 independent shorts hosted too - not sure where to find the full list, but there's 57 listed at this link. The indie shorts are available in the UK and Germany I think. The tv stuff is all locked down us-only.

There's this at least: for the old tv and indie films they host themselves, after the first 15 second ad, it's ad-free (unlike the hulu content which tends to have commercial breaks on tv shows).
