MINIS + MOVIES

YouTube has transformed itself into what was once the harbinger of Rick Astley videos and dudes filming what would happen when they bet they could totally jump off that roof into something somewhat more respectable. Via Sonar Entertainment, Youtube launched MINIS + MOVIES, a new paid subscription channel that brings classic miniseries and made-for-TV movies to your computer screen.

So while you won’t be able to watch such modern classics as Sharknado or Jersey Shore Shark Attack or Sharktopus through this subscription service, Sonar owns a catalog of over 500 titles that will be available for viewing. In case you were wondering, yes, they do have the Tia, Tamara and Taj Mowry film Seventeen Again. Thank you for asking.

The great part of exploring many of these telefilms is stumbling upon certain gems that Hollywood heavy hitters made at the beginnings of their careers. The Sonar catalog features flicks like Jennifer Garner’s 1999 action-disaster vehicle Aftershock: Earthquake in New York and True Women, a 1997 Texas Revolution drama starring Angelina Jolie.

Viewers have the option of subscribing for $1.99 a month or $19.99 a year. New films are added to the site every month, just in case you’ve already plowed through the database in search of Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?
