Best places to stream movies online

Monday, March 18th, 2013

With the advent of high speed internet, the ability to send and receive large amounts of data has become easier and more affordable. With cable television and DIRECTV offering services like movies on demand, it is time that other home solutions were equally easy to use. There are many different options for the home user to enjoy streaming movies with relative ease.

Netflix is the leader in the streaming movies department. They offer a low cost monthly subscription to a large number of movies and television shows. Online setup is easy, and users are allowed to pick movies they would like to see. These movies are added the the user’s queue, so the next movie on the list is always ready for immediate viewing. The original setup required a home computer or laptop, but now Netflix works well with set top streaming boxes such as Roku and Apple TV, smart televisions and app-enabled Blu-ray players. Netflix also has mobile apps to allow movies to be streamed to tablets and smartphones. The Netflix monthly plan does not offer on demand purchases, but the catalog of movies they have is vast.

Amazon Video Demand is a service that is also excellent for online streaming. It works well on desktop or laptop computers and is also able to stream to a growing number of other devices. One of the best things about Amazon Video On Demand is that customers are able to purchase movies from Amazon.com, and these purchases remain in Amazon’s cloud service. This makes all of the purchases available for viewing wherever there is a high speed internet connection. Amazon offers a rental system for new releases and a monthly fee plan which allows subscribers to have access to a catalog of popular movies.

Walmart recently acquired Vudu, making them a key player in the streaming movie business. The high definition quality of Vudu is considered to be the best at this time. Vudu is more of a rental service because there is no monthly fee, and the movies are only available to be viewed for 24 or 48 hours before the access runs out.

The new “Blu-Ray” video disc format offers numerous advancements over its predecessor, DVD. The primary difference between the two is their capacity. Blu-Ray discs are able to store more data in a smaller space due to the shorter wavelength of the blue laser.
