Since I just bought a new TV, I may subscribe to the Criterion Channel instead ($99 a year, I think). I love those old Criterion Laser Disks from 35 or so years ago and the films and commentary they so lovingly provided.

And that would take care of any additional expenditure.
I freely admit, Don, that I have absolutely zero idea of what you speak. Criterion channel?

Sorry. If you love films with different audio tracks (often from the Director) that includes interpretive audio and commentary, with Director's Cuts and impeccable video (with restored/lost video on classic films), check this out:

Ah. My late sister would have loved that. I adore old films--I could probably go the rest of my life without seeing another movie made after 1950--but I think I'm generally happier without the commentary. :-)

They have different audio tracks - just choose which one to listen to at any given moment.

Well, one can watch only so many car crashes, explosions, flying men in tights, and sword fights before a severe twitch develops. . .

Yep, artsy films. That's not to say there are not any good films there. But one thing I noticed is they really need apps for smart TVs.

I'll disagree about the twitch. I've binged the first eight fast & Furious movies. I've binged the MCU movies. I watched Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings yesterday. I've binged The Lord of the Rings (extended) movies.

But I do like other type of movies. They don't all have to be action movies. One movie that's going to be watched this weekend is The Father. It's available to stream in UHD/HDR.
