The project describes itself as a provider of restored content that features the original-broadcast quality. Among the digitally remastered items are feature movies, TV broadcasts and short clips.
Why we like it
In order to start watching unique vintage movies completely for free at The Film Detective, you only need to click through to the respective app on Apple TV, Roku or Amazon Fire TV. This means that you don’t have to download, purchase or configure anything at all.
It’s so great that this amazing source of vintage content is always at hand, ready to be used to explore older flicks and broadcasts together with your family.
But every platform needs to make money, and the Film Detective’s business model is based on display of ads. If you want to get rid of them, you’ll need to purchase a paid subscription.
For every vintage title, viewers get to enjoy some additional content, including an intro and exclusive behind-the-scenes material.
