wheretowatchATCLWheretoWatch.com offers convenient way to find movies and TV shows

Some good news for those trying for figure out where to find their favorite movies or television shows online.  Today the MPAA announced the launch of wheretowatch.com, a new site that makes searching for movies and TV shows easy.

Even better, the site isn’t limited to Hollywood fare.  Its search engine offers links to streaming sites featuring a variety of independent films.  In fact, when I searched for a movie I co-produced/directed, the niche lesbian comedy And Then Came Lola, I happily found 7 different options for renting and/or purchasing it.  Wheretowatch.com is great news for indie filmmakers hoping to publicize their offerings.

Of course it also helps in the ongoing battle against online piracy.  For $1.99 you can watch a movie.  After all, it’s cheaper–and lasts longer–than a cup of coffee from Starbucks.
