On top of that, it takes all the services you already pay for (that Showtime subscription, your nerdy PGA Tour subscription that all your friends make fun of you for having, the slice of life anime subscription that all of your friends secretly want), and lets you easily access them too. So now, all of your TV and all of your movies are in one place.
Searching for free stuff to watch on SelectTV couldn't be easier. You can sort by name, genre, or pretty much any other criteria, and the shows are helpfully divided up by network for your own casual perusal. Free movies range from very recent releases to older and more obscure ones. Most are on-demand, but the ones that are available via channels can be found in a sidebar panel. For TV, you generally have access to the five most recent episodes of a given show (give or take), which is perfect for catching up, but won't turn you into the binge monster that you're scared you've already become.
One of the less obvious perks is the Live Streaming feature, whereby you can check out dozens of different local broadcast stations internationally. Wanna know what's up in Dingle, Ireland? SelectTV might be able to help you with that. Plus, maybe you have a thing for German baking shows. You'll never know unless you try to find out.
