What are the best websites for watching Spanish language video, preferably for free? I am trying to improve my Spanish. Sites that include subtitles (Spanish, English, or both) with video would be particularly great.

Netflix isn't free, but if you already have a subscription you can watch plenty of Spanish-language movies and shows with subtitles. Hulu also, which I believe is free with ads.

You can also look at Spanish-language news sources which sometimes have video.

And you can search a word or phrase in Spanish on youtube and get free Spanish-language videos. I just searched a few random words/phrases and didn't check specifically for subtitles, but often they are available, especially for music videos.

El niagra en bicicleta

Spanish-language music is available for free on Pandora, just input the name of a musician who performs Spanish-language music. For the translation, google the lyrics (letras) and plug them into Google translate.

Rtve.es is the Spanish national broadcaster, and shows its own productions with subtitles and no geoblocking (the geoblocking is only for the productions they don't own, mostly dubbed foreign series).

2nding rtve.es; lots and lots of great series, documentaries, daily news etc.

Some of the geoblocked shows are so good they are worth getting a vpn to watch, like Amar en tiempos reveultos.

Also, check out eitb.tv/es, the public TV of the Basque Country.
