Thanks to this article in the New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/07/movies/kanopy-collection-available-for-streaming-at-nypl-and-brooklyn-public-library.html?_r=0) I found out about Kanopy.com.
I now have access to 1000s of movies including the entire Criterion catalog via my NYPL library card. It was easy to link the account to my Roku stick, and now I can stream 10 movies a month on my TV.
Remember you cannot create an account independently, you must sign up using your library card.
So if your library is one of the 192 that are part of the system, get in on it.
Best thing about it--FREE!

Thanks, Fantomas, I don't know if any Canadian libraries (including mine) are involved, but I'm sure going to check into it.

Even if I'm shutout, it's a great service for those who can take advantage.
