Audio Described TV and Film for the Holidays

Your profile: stuck inside due to weather or paying close attention to COVID restrictions. Film or TV fan. Likes free things. Watch films like “The Weight of Water,” “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” or “Dora and the Lost City of Gold” and TV series like “Downton Abbey,” “Young Sheldon,” and “Chicago Med, P.D., and Fire” on Spectrum Access: Enabled Media. On the same page, through ACB, there is a regularly updated list of available titles plus guidance on how to use Spectrum Access, which requires no registration or login. You don’t have to be a Spectrum customer, but you do have to be an iOS user, and download the app. Spectrum’s parent, Charter Communications, hopes to have an Android version sometime in 2021.

Looking for Christmas themed movies for the holidays? Spectrum Access offers “Almost Christmas,” “Black Christmas,” “Office Christmas Party,” and “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas.” If these don’t fit the bill, the Audio Description Project has a long list of audio described films and videos available through a number of streaming services as well as on DVD.
