The Doctor Who one off drama, "An Adventure in Space & Time", based on the early years of the show, is currently free. It's the seventh "episode" listed:

For some reason, OO won't link to the page. But the url is above.

Edit: Google Play also has it available for free, if you prefer that.

Looks like the promo code "JUNEBINGE" will give you a free month of CBS All Access. If it's like their other codes, it'll probably work even if you've already gotten a free month in the past.

If you have Amazon Prime, for the next few days you can get subscriptions to the Showtime and Starz video channels, each for 99 cents/month for the next two months (when those subscriptions will go back up to normal price, so you'll probably want to cancel them before then).

Lots of classic films from the 40s through the 60s in HD or 4K, Pick 3 for $10.

Requires a free moviesanywhere account (which you can link to Itunes/vudu/Amazon/etc accounts and have port to them):

Not sure if this link will work, but the S8 of the Game of Thrones is only $15, right now (historically I think it's been closer to $25, which is kinda bonkers for 6 episodes.

It had been $7 for the complete bundle, although I guess this was a mistake and they fixed it.

Scream Factory's Shocktober sale is going on, and it's a doozy. In the past their sales have sometimes just brought the MSRP closer to Amazon's price, but this year is a true blowout. Tons of collector's editions and boxed sets 50% off.

Free shipping on orders over $50.

Among it's other holiday sales, Vudu has a Veronica Mars bundle. All four seasons plus the movie for $20, which is an excellent price for an excellent series.

That's cool, but I'm having trouble envisioning someone with that many points who doesn't already subscribe to Disney+. :)

That would be me. :mrgreen:

I was eventually going to try it for a month or two at some point (I rotate through streaming services for a month or two - whatever's got a discount/promotion), but this made it an easy choice.
