A quick heads up for the 8+ million people living in New York City. According to The New York Times, anyone "who has a New York Public Library or Brooklyn Public Library card can now watch more than 30,000 feature films, documentaries, foreign-language films and training videos." This includes the entire catalogue of films in The Criterion Collection (think Fellini, Lynch and Kurosawa), and also complete lecture series from The Great Courses.

The films can be viewed streamed anywhere, anytime, on smartphones, tablets, PCs and smart TVs.

New York Public Library members can get started here. And Brooklyn Public Library fans can do the same here.

Please someone, beam me back to New York.
