Streaming Video Search Sites

Connect to JustWatch

Reelgood allows you to identify which streaming video platforms provide access to a particular film. The site covers both movies and television and indexes Netflix, Prime Video (Amazon), Hulu, HBO and 150+ others. Each search result provides real-time information about whether a title is available for instant viewing, rental, or purchase.

Prime Video (Amazon)

Connect to Amazon's Prime Video

Amazon’s Prime Video service provides access to more than 45,000 titles, on a pay-per-view basis. Most of the titles offered are feature films or TV shows, but documentaries and other forms are also available.

Rental prices differ per title, but generally fall in the $3-$4 range.

Once payment is completed streaming can begin immediately. Streaming can also be delayed for later viewing. License terms for each video specify the time-frame for viewing (for example: a viewing window of 48 hours, within an overall span of 30 days).

Using Amazon’s Video On Demand requires setting up a user account with Amazon, including credit card information for making payments.

Individual use of a title for 90 days costs about $5.

New Day Digital’s Terms of Service prohibit showing the films in a classroom or to groups when the individual students or members have not acquired individual licenses and also prohibits sharing of individual On Demand login information.

Using New Day Digital requires setting up a customer account on the site including registering credit card information for making payments.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
