17 Ways to Watch Free Documentaries Online

By Buttermouth Thursday, May 22, 2008
I recently read an article over at Makeuseof.com that listed "the best places to watch documentaries" online. I will have to respectively disagree with their use of "best" in the title. Some of those sites are good, maybe even great, but they passed over almost all the "best" ones.

Located below are ALL the documentary sites out there right now. I've spent countless hours searching through digg, del.icio.us, google, reddit, etc... trying to find every last site. If you know of a site that isn't listed below, please leave a comment and I will add it to the list.

Enough talking, lets get to the sites;

Good article and I like the search feature. My site Online Documentaries 4 U has a different format to most and a growing list of quality only documentaries.

Free documentaries at http://www.snagfilms.com.

Ignore the ads - watch the films - respect the filmmaker.

Some great content from PBS, Nat Geo, and other well known like Dig and Super Size Me.

Don't want to seem too pushy, but I just started my own documentary website. It's called Documentary Paradise and I've set it up so that it only connects to the best quality documentaries that I can find. I hope you will consider it.
