I am so sad about DVD's not really being made anymore. Streaming services have their pluses but films frequently are removed.
I finally stopped paying for Netflix DVDs (Sorry for whoever was waiting for Naach. It is permanently mine now)
I now have accumilated a ridiculous number of streaming subscriptions.
Amazon Prime with an Eros add on
Disney+ gets me Hulu where Hotstar content lives
Zee5 gets me more "regional" options
Youtube also has alot of movies for rent.
Subtitles are a challenge as usual for older films. There just aren't many on the streaming services. I feel llike Netflix had more but there are fewer classics there now.
Einthusan is my go to for older and hard to find films. Chances are fair that there will be subtitles. It claims to be a legal site, though I have my doubts (How the heck did they have the Tamil version of RRR uploaded before it hit Netflix and Zee5?) Anyways I have used it for years as a last resort without any problems. Recently they began charging a one time payment of 25$. I had no issues with that either.
What other OTT platforms should I throw my money at?
As well as the above I subscribe to YuppTV so can access SonyLiv, ALTBalaji and HoiChoi (Bengali content).
Our Disney+ doesn’t link to Hulu so I have a dedicated VPN to access Hotstar. Not sure if our Prime links to Eros.
