    HBO GO
    HBOGO is free, but only if you're an HBO subscriber on cable already, and that means you're already paying $40 a month. But if you're a subscriber, you get access to 300 movies currently airing on HBO, and new ones, like Inception plus over 40 HBO series past and present (Curb Your Enthusiasm! The Wire! Deadwood! Treme!), and another 150 titles from their comedy, documentary and sports vaults. The selection is far more limited than any other service (not to mention costly if you're not already an HBO/cable subscriber), but it's also very high quality.

    If you mostly watch Anime (and Japanese stuff in general), you'll want Crunchyroll. Alongside Hulu, it's the biggest purveyor of Japanese cartoons, and offers nearly 430 shows in 720p for $7 a month. Plus, it's available on smartphones, Vizio TVs and settop boxes. You're also paying $7 a month for a narrow, but deep, slice of content.

    What Crunchyroll does for anime, Fandor does for indie films. New films, old films, doesn't matter. Fandor is all about the stuff that major movie studios wouldn't want to touch with a ten foot pole. And while there are some quality films to be found within its 2,500 title catalogue, the service costs $10 a month and the only way to stream content away from a PC is on the Boxee box.

    Crackle may not have the name recognition of Hulu or Netflix or Amazon, but the Sony-owned company will soon become a force thanks to an embarrassment of exclusive Sony Pictures content and original programming. Moreover, Crackle doesn't cost a cent, and is available on Android (soon), iOS, PS3, Sony TVs and Blu-ray players and settop boxes.

    Snagfilms is a treasure trove of free documentaries that you can watch online. It has apps available for the iPad, Boxee and Roku, and films such as MacHeads, We Are Wizards and Heavy Metal Parking Lot are included among its 2100 titles.
