Where to watch movies in Turkey? – Paid video services
Turkey does still not have access to services like Netflix and Hulu or HBO. But Turkish people do make use of free legal services like Mubi & Tivibu. Tivibu is used for both television and movies. You can also check out the Turkish Mubi or try renting movies via Itunes.
Turkish cinema is a huge part of Turkish national culture. In recent years Turkey has been producing excellent films that had great success within its own borders, but have also been picked up internationally. Especially in Europe and the Arab world due to the high amount of Turkish expats and immigrants (and second and third generation Turks abroad) who (stream) watch Turkish films online in large quantities. For them the Turkish film channel is an excellent paid website. They do not include Netflix, but Netflix also has a pretty large supply of Turkish films.
Great recent Turkish films are feature films like Innocence (1997), Vizontele (2001), Uzak (2002), Gegen Die Wand (2004 – watch in our German section), Three Monkeys (2008), Once Upon a time in Anatolia (2011) just to name a few. Although Turkey has never been nominated for an Oscar, the list of great Turkish films is endless.
For those who cannot read Turkish subtitles or speak Turkish and would like to get introduced to Turkish cinema for free, I have made a selection of terrific free Turkish series and films online on Youtube.

One of my favorite Turkish films online. ‘Uzak’ or ‘Distant’ is an amazing drama film about a photographer who goes through an existential crisis when his wife leaves him. The film has been internationally successful, with amongst others awards from Cannes. It has been divided into several parts on Youtube.
