TV5 Monde Movies Now Available On Demand

Just last week, Comcast/Infinity added TV5MONDE Cinema On Demand to its services, at no extra charge to folks who subscribe to theTV5 COD premium channel ($9.95/month). The new on-demand service features award-winning French language films, including recent releases and classics; selections will change periodically; many of the films are subtitled. Look under Premium Channels and scroll down to "TV5MONDE Cinema" to see the list of films currently available, or go to http://www.tv5.org/cms/USA/CINEMA-ON-DEMAND/p-22481-lg3-TV5MONDE-CINEMA-ON-DEMAND.htm

For other French movie sources: Netflix has a large French film selection, Comcast sometimes has free French films in its movie libraries, and the Alliance Fran├žaise de Portland has an extensive DVD library for members.

Quoi de neuf: Profiles of the American Tourist in Paris, French in the Summer and More. Alliance Fran├žaise de Portland e-newsletter (info@afportland.org, 23 Jul 2013).
