Why should I pay for public domain content?

Pub-D-Hub is the product of a small group of volunteers who love classic television and movies. We are self-supported and have no advertising or investors. Running Pub-D-Hub takes a lot of time and a lot of work from each of our dedicated volunteer staff members. Additionally, it takes a lot of money to cover our monthly operating expenses. These costs include hosting, support, content distribution, and maintenance. So though public domain content is free, delivery of that content can be quite costly. We don't like charging a fee but we have managed to keep it extremely low. For the small fee of about 25 cents per month, you can enjoy Pub-D-Hub Gold knowing your membership is helping us continue operating.  

Will there still be a free Pub-D-Hub?

Yes.  Our service has now been split into two tiers: Basic Pub-D-Hub and Pub-D-Hub Gold.  The basic service will continue to be offered at no cost.

If watching on computer, tablet or mobile phone, there are no limitations on how many of these devices you can link to your account. The only requirement is they must be owned by you.
