If it doesn't give you the option to buy the entire season now, it should be the entire season.
No option so I guess I’m good to go! :horse:

Just out of curiosity, did you guys truly get the whole Doctor Who season 11 for only $3? If so I am both happy for you and cranky/jealous I missed out on the deal. :)

Lately iTunes has had seriously good digital deals, with many top-notch flicks at $4.99. Some current examples include Pan's Labyrinth, The Thin Red Line and Shrek. I've been using this link to stay up to date.

The only place I buy videos is at the pawn shops. They are always full of videos cheap cheap. Just not big into owning movies.

Nope, it's free. It's a movie locker, so you connect your accounts at digital movie retailers to it (Itunes, Vudu, Amazon Video, Google Play, etc), and, for those movies it supports that you own in one retailer it makes available to view at other retailers.

I connected all my retailers for streaming video to MoviesAnywhere quite some time ago, and I still got the email with the deal to add those three. So it's also for current users who already have two or more connected, it appears.

Thank you! I've been wanting to try it again (you have to be a new or returning customer - no sub in the last 12 months). If I can't stand commercials and want to switch plans, I make out if I can survive a month. :)

Nice find. Itunes sales cost me a lot of money with all of the awesome titles they regularly feature on sale at $4.99.

Amazon has a bunch of Great Courses video seasons available for $1. More than just the ones listed there (though not all of the Great Courses series), topics like history, science, religion, diet, gardening, law, medicine, etc. I've listened to several Great Courses audiobooks and enjoyed them, so I picked up the ones that looked interesting to me.

FYI:
Hulu has a $2/month for a year promo to new subscribers (or people who haven't subscribed in a long time).

Amazon Prime has a number of channels available for half off (eg, Britbox, CBS Access, Epix, etc) for three months. Some of these have this deal independently, if you don't like viewing it through amazon.

Kino Lorber is having a sale on some discs that will no longer be issued.

https://www.kinolorber.com/shop

They make some great discs for more obscure films. I picked up 5 horror titles that range from $15 - $25 each on Amazon for $50 shipped. Great deal, particularly since these are limited.
