Sorry if there is already a thread on this (I searched a bit; didn't see one), but it's worth talking about.

If you have a Roku device (or a newer TV with Roku), you owe it to yourself to download the "B Movie TV" channel (also get Pluto and Shoutcast for Mst3K and Rifftrax; and you might as well pick up "Beta Max" channel, a catalog of old terrible movies).

B Movie TV isn't a catalog; it's a streaming channel of schlock, shorts, movie review segments, trailers, and feature films. The trailers and commercials are hilarious -mostly, the commercials are off-the-wall (but sometimes a local affiliate too). The trailers lately: Fantastic Four (1991), Cathy's Curse, The Tormeted, Pieces, and the Tattoo Connection blaxploitation flick.

They have a general theme each day: Martial Arts Monday, Terror Tuesday, Sci Fi Wednesday, Action Thursday, Documentary Night Friday, with the weekend showing reruns of previous prime time slots. They have some cool review segs (final 30), midnight owl theater, Saturday morning anime cartoons, Saturday evening gimmic wresling, Saturday midnight sleaze, and Sunday night Pervy the Clown show. Recently the folks that run the channel did their own slasher shorts called Death Park 1 through 4, which are pretty tasty.

What's pretty cool about it is their FB group/fan page where members sometimes do a virtual streaming party, commenting together on the film/scenes in real time (and the channel owner/mod gets in on the action too).

Totally worth it (free channel, but the commercials are better than most ads)

My favorite aspect of all, they air a Cynthia Rothrock/Richard Norton movie at least once a week, sometimes twice.

Here's their clip of Death Park 1:

Sounds good, thanks for the heads-up!

I also second the recommendation to get Pluto.

You'll have to let us know what you all think after ya check it out.

There's another segment short on B-Movie TV I really love called Dr. V's B-Movie snacks where she makes (and tries) some food experiment to go with various movies/genres. Little creative stuff like this really makes the channel stick out to me. The production and creativity of the in-between movie stuff reminds me of early MTV videos where budgets were cheap and creativity was galore.

Here's the FB channel fan page:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1397312863660826/

and here's the official FB page (with schedules):
https://www.facebook.com/BMovieTV/

For an example, here was yesterday's schedule:

Sci-Fi Cinema Schedule
Hump Day is back! That means Sci-Fi action!!! We also have an episode of Zac Romero's The Final 30 as well! Let's get started....
Noon - Gamera The Invicible
2pm - Fists Of Bruce Lee - Starring Bruce Li
4pm - Death Raiders
6pm - Anthology horror.
8pm - Sci-Fi - Aliens and baby aliens and sex! Add up to a very wild Sci-Fi film with many well known faces.
10pm - Sci-Fi - We go to Japan for our Sci-Fi!! This one has great special effects for it's time!
Midnight - A vampire film!!!
2am - More death!

This channel is one of my new favorite things.

I just put the app on my Roku TV; I don't see a program guide to tell me what's on, so I guess I will try and find that online.  This channel seems to be a carbon copy of B-Mania, a digital cable channel back in the early 2000's that isn't around anymore.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
