The first thing that caught my eye about this site is the promise that all videos listed on the free area of their site are guaranteed to be available for immediate download. There is no rotation and waiting for the production you are interested in seeing to "come back around". This site features Strictly English productions and upon entering the site, found that their promise of having all videos available for immediate download was a true one.
Upon entering the members area (after a few advertisements) you will find all of the promised selections stacked up neatly in rows of 3. Each has a title and photo to click on which will bring you to that selection's download page. You have the option of downloading the video in either multiple clips or in one file. Generally, the most recent selection has the parts added first over the course of the month with the full file added last. Each video is in WMV format, runs for an hour, and is in the neighborhood of 250 MB for the uncut version. The screen resolution for each clip is 384 x 288 with a frame rate of 584 kbs. The video quality is about average for this type and size of file.
The cost of membership is just under $33.00 per month. So, if there are some videos on the list that interest you, it's a pretty good site to get a bunch of Strictly English full length downloads. However, the only drawback that I saw is that only 2 new videos are added each month. So, a long term membership may not be something many will be interested in.
