Many of us, most without even noticing, have switched to accessing their content via streaming rather than downloading. For music, this is either via YouTube, Spotify, Last.fm, Grooveshark or a similar service, because it’s a time and cost effective method. Not only that, but it’s easy and reliable.
For TV Shows, you may be a fan of the BBC iPlayer, ITVplayer or 4OD? The content that you have missed can be watched again online, at your convenience via the Internet.
So, what about Movies? Usually, with the introduction of Blu-Ray or HDTV, people prefer to see their Movies in Hi-Definition, something that Streaming usually struggles with due to bandwidth/speed limitations. To counter this, many (rogue) movie streaming sites over sub standard quality releases of movies – some of which don’t play correctly or require some obscure flash player that you wouldn’t even install on your worst enemies PC. So what’s available for online Movies? Netflix? Or how about using XMBC??
