Streaming B5 - Legally - USA

Yes, at long last, there's a legal way to stream B5 on mobile devices or regular desktop:


It's effective today and the site seems to be fairly new. There was an article in Variety yesterday about it:


Deal includes 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,' 'Almost Human,' 'Babylon 5,' 'Believe,' 'Stalker'

Verizon is punching the thriller and sci-fi buttons with a pact to bring all seasons of seven Warner Bros. TV shows — including “Veronica Mars” and “Fringe” — to the free Go90 mobile-video service.

The deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution makes Go90 the exclusive streaming outlet for the series, which also include “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” “Almost Human,” “Babylon 5,” “Believe” and “Stalker.” Besides theoretically appealing to Go90’s millennial target demo, the shows were more affordable for Verizon to license than more recent TV hits. A source familiar with the pact indicated that it runs for one year or less.
Let's try to make it a success!

If all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." ~~Marcus Cole

Lol you beat me to it! I was just about to create a post for this. This is really great news. I own B5 on DVD in its entirety, but I'm glad more people will be able to watch it now because the fact that it wasn't on a streaming service was a huge turn-off. I suppose DVDs are just viewed as obsolete or too expensive nowadays.

Re: Streaming B5 - Legally - USA

Very surprised this hasn't gotten more comments. I am watching it on Go90 and it looks great on my tablet. It is free and I love it. I have seen very few commercials at the start of episodes. I am almost through Season One. My only complaint is I wish I could get it on my Roku to view on my TV, but like I said, it looks really good on my tablet . . . and my phone.

I don't watch a lot of stuff on my computer, I also prefer it on the television screen. I also am at a busy time, rematching the entire series would work better for me in the summer time.

I have to admit that I do greatly enjoy that I can just carry it with me and have it playing in the background where ever I go. This being said, it is a huge distraction that makes me constantly stop and start looking at the screen.
