The Watchathon as promised started promptly on at the stroke of Midnight on Sunday April 17th. Regrettably in the euphoria of the moment there were a couple of things we neglected to tell you.
The First is that not everything is available all at once on Watchathon. A little orange key beneath the program icon on tablets from Amazon or Apple indicates what is available for watching now.
Clicking on a keyed not as yet available program will produce the prompt "available to subscribers only."
Before you conclude that the Watchathon is a crock consider the wise advice of not looking a gift horse in the mouth. meaning the Watchathon provides plenty free content to satisfy anyone willing to look for it.
Examples include 311 movies from Cinemax including
Heaven Help Us a little gem gem I completely missed in the theater, video stores, or the multitude of movie channels that cropped up on cable and over the air sub channels since the arrival of High definition channel splits. The Language is not appropriate for 2016 but pitch perfect for 1965 the year in which the movie is set. Then every word said in the vocabulary of students at an all boys Catholic High School seemed to begin appropriately enough with the letter "F". Fail, Flunk, Flame out and Forgetaboutit all come readily to mind.
