Shout! Launches Streaming Channel w/ MST3k & More

Shout!Factory, aka the coolest people ever, have launched another really cool thing: a streaming channel called ShoutFactoryTV. I count 32 completely-free-to-watch episodes there along with, hooboy, all sorts of TV shows and movies and stuff (including all the Film Crew episodes in the “film” section!). ShoutFactoryTV.com is available on desktop or mobile browser and is also available through the Shout!Factory TV app on Roku.

Other ways to see MST3K:

Select annotated episodes on the MST3K Official YouTube channel.

If your local library offers videos through Hoopla, you can borrow free select episodes using your library card.

MST3K episodes are available for digital rental and purchase on a variety of outlets including iTunes, Google Play, Vimeo, Amazon Instant Video, Xbox, and more.

Ain’t technology grand?

    Very cool, I will have to try this out. And I don’t know if everyone else’s library is as cool as mine, but they get one copy of every new box set that people can check out.

    If you have a Roku (and I don’t know if it’s availble otherwise), there is also a service called Popcorn Flix that offers 25 episodes for free streaming. I think only one or two are also available on the Shout Factory streaming channel. Here’s a link: http://www.popcornflix.com/ It’s great to own a Roku and cut the cord!

    My sources tell me that may not last much longer, which is why I didn’t include it.

    I would highly doubt it. If they bothered to pay to license the movies they would likely either be out on DVD already, or coming out soon. And in the latter case I doubt they would want to steal the thunder away from upcoming DVD releases by streaming them for free months in advance.

    That’s too bad about PopcornFlix. Discovered it last year, hopefully Shout can fold those eps into their streaming collection.

    My library hasn’t had a box set since XXIV. They’ve got a bunch of Rhinos, though.

    Watching Castle of Fu Manchu now….

    A lot of us have most of these shows on dvd but would like to watch episodes “on the run”. Streaming is the way to go my man!

    Very cool. Sadly, neither my library (at which I work), nor any library in our region, has MST3k. Actually…. my library doesn’t even have DVDs yet. Yeah…

    Great news! Although after a quick look I noticed a couple mistakes…they have #523 being Bride of the Monster not Village of the Giants. Also they have#607 as I Accuse My Parents not Bloodlust! Not complaining,just saying!

    And even a Garry Shandling Show episode! (Back when he still had hair to worry about, and before he joined Hydra.)

    Shout’s Ernie Kovacs collection, though, is pretty pointless unless you get to the last 60’s NBC episodes, and then it’s required viewing for all Joel Hodgson enthusiasts looking to understand his roots.

    The numbering is screwed up. They’ve got `Season 11` listed.

    Please tell me this isn’t only running on Flash or hasn’t been set to block non-computer or non Roku type devices. I tried it on my Wii U internet browser (which is HTML5 based and one of the best non-PC internet browsers you will see anywhere) and get “Sorry, the requested video is not available on this device.” If it will work on Roku, why not my game console? I can stream and watch all of my Rifftrax VOD titles on my Wii U, so why not this? Disappointed.

    I believe that’s how the episodes are numbered on IMDb, with the KTMA shows being “season one.”

    Yeah, I can’t watch the videos on my phone either.

    There’s never been a better time to be a fan of this show. Well, except for when they were actually making it, of course.

    It’s weird – on desktop it’s channeling Hulu (so… ads) but on mobile I’m not getting anything other than the pure show (WOO!)

    I have all of these except Attack of the Giant Leeches on DVD. Still, it should be noted just how cool Shout Factory is for doing this. Guys, it’s free! And legal! It’s free and legal! And there’s 32 of them. Isn’t this kind of generosity kind of rare? I mean I still prefer DVDs personally because those last, but if I ever need an easy way to show someone what it’s all about, here it is.

    Hey wait, how did they get the full first season of The Twilight Zone? They didn’t put out the DVD. This deal may be a lot bigger than just Shout Factory.

    I checked out the Shout channel on Roku. The streaming eps do have ads unless you pay a fee. The fee let’s you go ad-free. Maybe some are ad-free for free as I didn’t look at every single show available.

    These are the same eps that are on Hulu. Hell, it even uses an embedded version of Hulu to play them. What’s the difference between watching them on Hulu and on ShoutFactoryTV?

    ^^^^^

    It’s just using an embedded version of Hulu? Booooo. No wonder it won’t play on my Wii U and other devices. Again, disappointed.
