What the press is saying about OVID

"A fantastic streamer for people with a taste for foreign, political, and otherwise beyond-the-American-mainstream films." – Vanity Fair

"For fans of arthouse, foreign and experimental cinema, the pickings on the usual streaming suspects (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime) are pretty slim. Even the deep catalogs at the Criterion Channel and Mubi tend to hew to the middle of the road. So if you're in the mood for some challenging and enriching films from across the globe, your best bet these days is OVID.tv." — Willamette Week

"Ovid.tv is ideal for fans of all sorts of under-the-radar and non-English-language films, and it is committed to adding new films and documentaries from many sources at a rapid pace to give you more viewing choices. OVID.tv’s web and mobile apps are seamless to use, and we particularly like the slick search functionality." — PC Mag

"A haven for indie gems." — Kathryn Shattuck, New York Times

"A cornucopia of international movies and documentaries, short- and medium-length films and features, recent ones as well as classics. [OVID is] far better for recent movies than FilmStruck ever was, and its spectrum of new movies is far more substantial than that of Netflix, wider-ranging than that of Amazon Prime." — Richard Brody, The New Yorker

"A Netflix for the left." — Louis Proyect, CounterPunch

"Five months in — and now boasting more than 500 films, the majority of which aren’t available on any other streaming platform — this most esoteric of services is continuing to showcase the virtues of its unique approach." — David Ehrlich, IndieWire

"The streaming space for film is increasingly crowded. Even so, OVID fills such a particular niche that its offerings are unlikely to be found elsewhere." — Michael Nordine, Indiewire

"Getting the jump on The Criterion Channel was OVID.tv, the incredible new streaming service backed by some of the greatest distributors... This is truly the killer app for cinephiles." — Joshua Brunsting, CriterionCast

"Characteristically offbeat and compelling." — IndieWire

"OVID is the new destination for films that are largely unavailable on most other platforms. Love hard-hitting issue documentaries and international independent cinema? Ovid is the place for you… it is not just any streaming site, but a haven for cinephiles who have been left behind." — Monica Altmayer, NONFICS

"Many of us are still mourning the November 2018 demise of FilmStruck, the AT&T-owned SVOD service for Turner Classic Movies and the exclusive online streaming home of The Criterion Collection. Although FilmStruck was short-lived, its demise was a catalyst, a wake-up call to smaller distributors. It may be serendipity, but OVID.tv has stepped in to help fill the void." — Cynthia Close, IDA's Documentary Magazine

What activists are saying about OVID

"OVID is a very much needed adjunct to the mainstream of video streaming." — John A. Knox, Executive Director Emeritus, Earth Island Institute

"[It] plays a vital role in bringing stories of climate change, justice, and democracy to our screens... we're fortunate to have OVID on our side." — Brady Walkinshaw, CEO Grist

"Sign up today and you’ll see a brighter light at the end of the tunnel!" — Randy Hayes, RAN founder, Executive Director Foundation Earth
