Spanish TV & Films

Hi Everybody. Ive just started to learn spanish & was wondering where's the best place to go to find some spanish media with english subtitles. Looking for something similar to netflix which doesn't have a spanish site.

Thanks, Ben

try the Spanish episodes of Extr@ on YouTube, or just search YouTube for "Spanish language" and you'll get all sorts of hits

Netflix actually has some Spanish language titles available, and many other programs with available Spanish language audio tracks (Star Wars: The Clone Wars is one that comes to mind). Hulu does as well. Beyond that, RTVE has many programs available to stream. Most cable systems in the US have Univision and Telemundo plus other Spanish language channels, though often most are available only as an additional content package that must be subscribed to (Univision Telemundo both have websites that offer a lot of content to stream). Finally, some channels like Disney, Disney XD etc. have Spanish language content available via SAP (my daughters like to watch Phineas and Ferb in Spanish).

Good luck with your studies.

About half of all US DVD's have Spanish subtitles. If you have any at home have a look.

If you're into time travel: el ministerio del tiempo has subtitles, too.

I've only watched the first two so far, but this has been a fun show to watch.

Yes. Sometimes they have a rather amusing conception of technology ("we take our computers and cellphones with us into the 15th century, so we can look things up on the internet should the need arise") but I still like it. And more importantly: it helps training my Spanish ear.

You can watch many shows by searching the "Subtitles Captions" on the left side of the main screen, there are a ton of Disney movies see here.

Also, if you have cable tv, many of major networks have secondary audio programs (SAP) in the audio menu. Unfortunately, I'm fairly sure the subtitles only match the audio. (let me know if someone knows how) and I watch with the Spanish subtitles on. When I do this I watch movies or shows I have already seen.

Another good alternative might be using a book "Listen and Learn Spanish with Your Favorite Movies". I just found a copy at a used book store for $2. It has a ~600 core word section followed by chapter by chapter vocabulary for a number of movies.

Edit: darn, pinkodoug was too quick with a response (had to walk the dog). Also, how do I make the darn embedded links work???

You've almost got it right, just switch the parenthesis and the braces. e.g. [link text](url).
