Paramount Vault (YouTube)

Paramount now has a number of their older movies available to stream for free on YouTube. The catch is there are a few commercial breaks during each.

IMO, this is really damn smart of them as it's like having a Paramount TV channel without any of the overhead.

Oddly none of the movies in the Sizzle Reel are actually on there yet, on the bright side I can now link people to some movies I want them to watch:

Getting this to work on Roku is a major pain in my ass. The You Tube search engine is as useless as someone who is planning a Detroit Lions Superbowl victory parade.

Is your Roku connected to your Youtube account? That makes it much easier to use.

Subscribe to the Paramount Vault channel. Then when you select that channel on the Roku, all the movies are grouped by genre.

You can also create your own Playlist. Then browse the movies on the Youtube website and add them to the list.

Good idea on Paramount's part. Is there a list somewhere of the titles they've included?

I did subscribe to that channel(on my laptop) but I don't watch Youtube(via Roku)much because of their subpar search engine. I type a letter and then it skips and types a letter by itself.I will select the letter B and it skips it and types the next letter C.

It isn't skipping the letter, it's filling in the blank with common search terms. If you move the cursor it goes back to whatever letter you had next.

Still, the Search isn't great due to the sheer amount of content (and tags) used on YouTube. I usually find it on my laptop and Cast it to my Roku.

Yeah I do the same. Much earlier to find it on a computer.

I would watch Youtube(Roku) a lot more if it were easier to navigate.

Don't know why Fox,Universal and WB come up with streaming movie channels. WB Archive doesn't have much of a selection and its mostly the bottom of their barrel.

Pretty cool of Paramount to offer this. Of course the channel doesn't have a lot of their great films but still the fact that they're offering full length films for free is nice.
