I usually just go to the news section and click on the headers for the various sections. Around the sports section, I’ve fulfilled my daily searches.

For mobile, I just type in the alphabet up to T.

I do the same thing. It gives me a good review of the day's news. I also check the rewards page. There's always a couple quick 10 Point items. If I have time, I do the quizzes.

Re: The kinda all streaming deals thread

On topic, the Amazon 99 cent sale seems to be continuing, and looks like perhaps a few new additions.

Sorry about temporarily turning this into a Microsoft Rewards points thread, but three more quick things:

1- This is really quick and easy and I’m sad that I haven’t been accumulating free gift cards all along. Maybe two minutes a day to max out the points and get a $5 giftcard every two weeks.
2- I see they have 20 bonus points a day for searching with Edge.
3- Yesterday searching on iOS Safari gave me my 150 PC search and my 100 mobile search points, but today I can’t seem to get the mobile points. Tried several browsers and apps.

Yep, and if you get a streak going you get bonus points every 5-7 days.

One last thing about the Microsoft Rewards. There are cheating sites and bots that will run in the background and do the Bing search for you. DO NOT USE THESE. Microsoft will ban you from the Rewards program. They can tell the difference between bots doing random searches, and real human search patterns.

I used credits for some of my kids' favorites: Princess Diaries 1 and 2, Confessions of a Shopaholic, When in Rome.

Interesting that no service appears to have the first two High School Musicals, just the third one (which played in theaters) and the concert.

High School Musical

High School Musical 2
$7.99 $7.99


I don't think they're MA titles, though.

The first two HSM are made-for-TV Disney Channel movies. So they don't qualify for Movies Anywhere. iTunes has them in the TV Shows section.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/tv-seaso...al/id791759881
https://itunes.apple.com/us/tv-seaso...-2/id791766415


Unless you need them right now, I'd wait. They frequently go on sale for $5.

Thanks! I had just checked Vudu and Xbox.

That's a good point about titles like these being categorized as either movies or TV. It's still weird, though, that Vudu and Xbox don't have them in either category. Maybe some kind of legacy thing with iTunes and Amazon.

I don't really need them to buy them as I still have them on disc, and it's not like my kids regularly watch them anymore. The fact that they're not MA is another strike.

For some reason, Vudu doesn't carry any Disney Channel content. There might be a few exceptions. But almost all the TV shows and movies are missing.

Hmm, interesting. Same with Xbox, though I'm pretty sure it was there at some point. Maybe they're migrating it off even the paid services in anticipation of their own service.

The inconsistency is probably another thing to add to the "annoying things about streaming" thread.

Re: The kinda all streaming deals thread

Just did a search on the Amazon $0.99 titles and discovered different titles now.

Not necessarily more. Some titles are no longer $0.99. Other titles that weren't $0.99 before are now

Special When Lit's been on there a while. I think the list, when sorting by "featured" fluctuates a lot, with titles moving up and down the list. There's 140 pages now, so definitely more titles than when I last checked.

I'm on the fence about getting the Trancers trilogy. It seems like the sort of film I'd have loved in the 80s, but I've never seen them

Some things I found:

Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story - a very meta movie featuring the combination of Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, and Michael Winterbottom, who later worked on "The Trip" trilogy of films/shows.
Amazon Amazon

Uncanny - looks like a gender flipped Ex Machina.
Amazon Amazon

The Game Changer - Set in 1930s Shanghai, the trailer just looks gorgeous.
Amazon Amazon

Painted Skin: The Resurrection - Chinese fantasy action film
Amazon Amazon

Done the Impossible - Documentary about Firefly & Serenity
Amazon Amazon

They've added Paul Simon Live at Hyde Park.

Looks and sounds great. I was worried that it was after his voice went but it sounds like this was before that thankfully.

Re: The kinda all streaming deals thread

Forgive me, since I only search through Amazon videos when I have credit. And especially when they are about to expire. But how do you find a list of the 99 cent titles? I'm looking all over, but apparently not in the right place.

I just found out that Justwatch can lists the Amazon $0.99 titles, in a big list of just pictures, a bit faster to scroll through. Includes SD titles.
https://www.justwatch.com/us/movies?...uy&max_price=1

A few more I've found

Three by Johnnie To
Amazon Amazon

Yasmine - looks like a Indonesian Karate Kid
Amazon Amazon

Orson Welles' Don Quixote (1992) (SD Only) - this is a 1992 attempt to complete this unfinished film.
Amazon Amazon
