Check your local library for DVDs featuring movies and old TV shows. Also check in amongst the regular book sections for DVDs on travel, cooking, exercise, etc. It's all free!

The library may have some for rent free of charge. You'll need a library card, but it might be free too, depending on your library's rules.
