Hey smile

I have been told it's a great help when you are learning a language to watch tv and movies in that language. I dont have a TV but can watch online. Are there any good sites you have come across for doing this in Spanish ?

Thanks smile

These options are all free and legal. Depending on your level, you might check out a relatively beginner-level telenovela called "Destinos" that is specifically made to teach Spanish. It's a little old-school, but is very effective. Your school or local library may have a copy. Telenovelas (soap operas in Spanish, typically on every day during the week) in general are usually pretty easy to understand because the acting is so dramatic. Univision, Telemundo and MTV en español also have some free streaming options. You might also check out Hulu's new Hulu Latino. Looks like it's a mix of free, ad-supported clips/videos and Hulu+ subscription content, but there's tons of it there! Hope this helps and good luck with your studies!

There are many Spanish movies (with or without subtitles) at Netflix (only $7.99 per month) and is unlimited.

Good luck!

  • How do you search Spanish movie in Netflix? I have to look at the details of the DVD descriptions. Is there a better way to search for them? - JazSpanish Feb 9, 2012 flag
  • Hi! Start searching for a title in Spanish, like "Sin Nombre" and then, you'll get suggestions, more movies in Spanish. At least when you watch them online, they have options for subtitles or speaking language. - 00a4c226 Feb 9, 2012 flag
  • If you order DVD read the descriptions about the languages. - 00a4c226 Feb 9, 2012 flag

This link has a very large number of Spanish television shows. I particularly like Águila Roja, Crónicas, Comando Actual, and Ciudad K.

Be aware that they are mostly in Peninsular Spanish, though some of them are in Catalan.
