My parish recently purchased a one year subscription for every parishioner for the Augustine Institutes's online streaming site FORMED.  I registered on the site and was very happy with the content.  According to the Augustine Institute: "Bring some of the most compelling and trustworthy in the Church today in the homes (and lives) of your parishioners. Formed can be compared to Netflix or Amazon for Catholics. Now the best Catholic video studies, movies, audio presentations and eBooks are all just a click away!"

FORMED contains movies, audio, and books from the Augustine Institute, Ignatius Press, Lighthouse Catholic Media, Word on Fire, the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception, and the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology.  This includes full-length movies, documentaries, kids programing, etc...

It is a subscription service, but there is a a free trial offering as well.  Definitely check it out, it is worth your time and consideration.  I will certainly be using this with my family, as well as my students.   There is quite a bit of biblical content too!

Buddy of mine who is a pastor in South Dakota starting using Formed couple years ago and loves it. Their RCIA, marriage/couples programs are all using Formed. Gives it high praise.
