Free video streaming offers some gems – if you can find them

NEW YORK (AP) — Free video services let you watch thousands of movies and TV shows online, but many of the offerings consist of reality TV, long-forgotten “classics” and movies that never made it to theaters.

But finding gems in the junk, like the original “Roseanne,” can give you a treasure-hunting rush.

Unfortunately, websites and apps for many of the services have poor search capabilities. An outside search aid such as Roku, Reelgood, Decider and JustWatch can help scan multiple services to see which ones have the titles you want.

Once you find something to watch, you’ll have to put up with commercials.

But entertainment costs are rising, especially as AT&T, Disney and Apple introduce new video subscriptions. Free is hard to turn down.
