Roku owners: get Pub-D-Hub free
Do you already own a Roku box? If so, this is an easy one.
There is a free channel available for the Roku called Pub-D-Hub. “Pub D”, in this case, is short for “public domain”. Those are works which are not under copyright protection…they are owned by the public.
I’ve seen some of these before…I remember enjoying the Japanese Star Man movies (Atomic Rulers, Attack from Space) decades ago. Others are curiosities…like an early Betty White TV show.
If you are a geek movie buff, there are certainly films here you know:
- The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
- Carnival of Souls
- Dementia 13
- Destination Moon
That’s just from one category, though. They have Westerns, television, commercials…even cautionary films.
They also have an Old Time Radio channel.
New content is added once a month.
Remember, all this is free! You can see the list here:
but you can’t actually watch them at that website…that’s through your Roku box.
There is a premium, second tier service with even more content…for the amazing price of $2…a year!
It’s worth noting that the videos may not be in pristine condition…I’ve certainly seen scratches and such. There also aren’t a lot of controls in the free version…but it does remember where you were if you stop in the middle of a movie, even if you leave the channel and come back.
So, enjoy! If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to watch some more of Attack of the Monsters…go, Gamera!
