    Hi all as above really.
    1930's - 60's

    Use YT a bit but lots of films are clipped.
    TCM seems to be gone

    Any suggestions?

    Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/movies

    BFI player as well probably has some older titles.

    Criterion Films seems to be only available in the US, but might be accessible via a VPN service.

    I watch most of my classic movies on Apple TV or Google Play. The selection is very good although it is usually 2.99 or 3.99 for the rental.

    I'd never heard of this one, thanks for sharing :) They have a website with monthly schedules and highlights. They're also on Virgin 445, Freesat Channel 306, Freeview Channel 81, or Youview Channel 81.

    Most of my TV viewing is through streaming or catchup services so I was entirely unaware of this. Must go and retune the freeview receiver in ny TV and see if I can get it.
