Streaming Film & Video

Streaming Film

Subscription Services

Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime are the largest subscription services for streaming film if you're having trouble getting a film through the library.

Subscription Aggregators

Services such as Can I Stream.It? and GoWatchIt attempt to aggregate the content the major subscription services are serving. However, they are not always perfect, and it is best to double-check against the specific services as well.

In addition to these, IMDb will often list upcoming TV broadcasts of movies and shows, as well as provide links to content on Amazon (although that content is not guaranteed to be free for Prime customers).

Free streaming film at HCPLC

UT students and faculty are welcome and encouraged to join the Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative (HCPLC). HCPLC offers a large selection of streaming videos and ebooks, many of which are not available at the Macdonald-Kelce Library. If you are looking for a feature film or popular novel, join the Hillsborough Public Library by signing up for a free library card.
