I don't have netflix or any of those movie and tv thingies but I really want to watch

a movie called "The unmistaken child". It there any way I can watch it on my computer because I have looked at Youtube and Googled it and all I find is trailers and parts of it.

Oh and it I want to pay for one of those thingies. Which one is the best and cheapest. I feel like I am paying too much for tv as it is.

Thanks everyone!

1. Try your local library

I can get or order almost anything from them. But then, my library has been voted the best small library in the U.S.

4. here's my standard spiel:

We are of the opinion that paying for TV is a huge rip off. I am referring to either cable or satellite. We've used both for a very long time and came to the conclusion that the programming is generally of poor quality (the content, that is) and not worth paying for. But I have to admit that we are not watchers of sports, except maybe the Olympics, so that might change the equation.

We got ourselves a digital antenna and hooked it up to our large plasma TV set and bought a Tivo box and a lifetime subscription. That way we can time-shift our watching of news, weather and PBS programming which is the best thing on the air, hands down.

And we are subscribers to Netflix, both Instant View and DVDs/BluRays through the mail. That's where our monthly money for TV programming goes--just for Netflix. We have NO monthly bill for TV because the antenna is paid for ($65) and the Tivo and the lifetime subscription are too. We figure we recouped our costs in less than a year by not paying for the satellite any more.

We can watch any movie that has come out on DVD right at home, and have our favorite PBS shows and like BBC World News America as a news source--a very good one, too, brought to us my PBS.

I would recommend adding up what you pay per year for what you are watching now and compare to a set up like ours. We had to mount the antenna on the side of our house, about ten feet up, to get a good signal out here in the suburbs, but what you get over the air is the original, uncompressed true HD TV, not the compressed digital given to you by the cable and satellite providers. And it is free, free, free! Since TV has gone digital, there is no such thing as a fuzzy or static picture. It's great. Once in a great while the picture will pixillate for a few seconds, due to some weather somewhere, but it is really not a problem and goes away right away.

5. What Ginny said

Between over-the-air PBS, DVDs, and streaming, I have more content than I have time to watch. I will never be caught up.

6. I don't have a TV

I have streaming netflix for $8 a month. I watch on ipad or desktop. Also have Amazon prime and watch streaming content thru that. Netflix is cheapest!

7. This movie is available as a DVD rental or purchase from Netflix and Amazon, but not to stream:

http://dvd.netflix.com/Movie/70109096

http://www.amazon.com/Unmistaken-Child-Dalai-Lama/dp/B002MZCSW4

Edit: you can check on the availability of any particular film you are seeking to stream online at the following site:

Just enter the title in the search window and it will search for it at the various major streaming services.

8. OK I got my library system to send it to the library near me! Yeah! Thanks all.

BTW in case anyone is interested this is a documentary of a Buddhist Monk, (or man) whose teacher died. He was told by the Dali Lama to find the reincarnation of this monk. So he traveled all over the place using all sorts of methods to find the child. This is the same thing they will do when the Dali Lama dies.

I am really curious about the process and what makes the man believe that the child he found is the reincarnation of his teacher.
