Most of us come home after work or have some free time on the weekend and would like to relax for a while maybe pour something to drink, grab a quick snack and sit down to watch some television. First lets watch the news for a while to catch up on things current. Now I would like to watch a movie, I have all the premium channels my cable company offers, STARS, Showtime, Lifetime, Cinema, the list goes on. I cannot find anything that interest me they have the same titles sometimes for months at a time. Pay-per-view is my next option the cost is $6 up to $20. A subscription to Net Flix is $ 7.99 a month. No way !
I decided to do some surfing on the internet I typed in movie downloads, started reading what they had to offer it sounded pretty good to me. Some sites offered P2P movies. I knew this was an infringement on the copyright, the same thing happened with the CD's in the music industry consumers were downloading the songs but the producers were not receiving any commission. They made a big deal of it, a few people refused to stop distributing the songs. They were heavily fined or jailed. I eventually found a site that claimed to have legal downloadable movies NOT P2P. They offered unlimited downloads for two years at
a very fair price and a two month satisfaction guarantee, they would refund my money if I wasn’t pleased.
To join their club was very simple I entered my credit card information and then hit the download button. I filled out the rest of the form; the selection of movies came up on my screen. The selection was immense, it contained a large selection; action, adventure, cartoons, comedy, classics, drama, fiction, new DVD releases, love, mystery, and you get the point.
Most homes today have HDTV which allows you to join the computer to the TV through a HDMI cable, USB port via your home entertainment system or with some AV Jack's .With one of these methods you can watch the movie directly from the computer right to the TV. This allows the HDTV to become the monitor for the computer which is a nice feature to have, you can view your digital pictures or videos right on the HDTV. A HDMI cable costs about $ 35.00 . These methods can be easily looked into through the Internet. If you cannot join the two and have a conventional television do not despair.
