But that's not all: Use the "Search for Position" board, and just play! Whatever moves you enter will dynamically update the shop with all the video series that deal with the position in question. Plus, it knows how relevant the videos are for the position and weights them accordingly. 

Give it a try! If you enter the moves 1.e4 e6 a list with the various lines of the French appears: Winawer, the Classical Variation, the Tarrasch Variation, French Advance Variation, etc.

Of course, you can search for any and all openings. E.g. The Italian has become quite popular recently.
