I absolutely love movies and selected TV shows. Alas, it seems I never have time to watch them when they are on TV. While Tivo or DVR is one good solution, my method of choice for viewing obscure movies and TV shows for free is Hulu and Fancast.
Both Hulu and Fancast allow the free watching of TV episodes and a selection of movies, all made possible by advertisements periodically embedded in the show. They are available in semi HD (480p), and rarely do I have any streaming lags.
I’ve found this to be by far the simplest, legal solution to watching missed episodes of my favorite TV shows.
