Thank you for streaming and fast internet. Not only can we work at home but staying at home during this crisis can be a little less stressful. From local to international films and shows, here's our own personal picks to get your entertainment fix without spending a single centavo.

If you want a service similar to the likes of Netflix, then iflix is your best bet. While the service has content that are paid (via their iflixVIP program), not all require a subscription. All you need to do is create an account and you're good to go. Some highlights are the local films the musical dance film "Indak, the independent film "Edward", and the Mike de Leon directed and Atom Araullo helmed "Citizen Jake".

If you think Cinema One is only available through television then you're wrong. The Cinema One YouTube Channel has been uploading full movies for quite sometime. The selection might be slim but it has still some heavyweights such as "That Thing Called Tadhana" starring JM de Guzman and Angelica Panganiban. Just be sure to type the keywords "full movie" via search on their official YouTube page.

Due to the quarantine, TBA Studios uploaded a pile of their hits in their official YouTube channel just a few days ago. The films released is being headlined by the psychological thriller film "Bliss" starring Iza Calzado and directed by Jerrold Tarog.

Founded almost five decades ago, Regal Entertainment has been a staple of the local film industry. Even better, the outfit has been slowly releasing its classic films through its YouTube page. If you're a tito or tita then you'll probably love their selection of 80s to 90s films.

With partners from heavyweights such as MGM, Lionsgate, Starz, and Paramount, Tubi boasts at least 50,000 titles in its library as of 2019. While the selection is of the older variant, there are films like Fist of Fury starring Bruce Lee or our go-to real-life documentary crime show "Forensic Files"

If independent films and documentaries floats your boat then SnagFilms will be a godsend. The film has around 5,000 independent films and documentaries and shows from around the world. If you want to expand your knowledge into the fringe, then SnagFilms will be perfect. While the selection might be limited, it has some gems like National Geographic content.
