Ok, so you’re a movie film buff and want to enjoy the cinema experience from the comfort of your own home? Well, fortunately, there are some great movie streaming services available and below are my two favourite ones.
Movies Capital is a legal online download service that allows you to download unlimited films. There is a very low cost one-off payment to access the service and you can then download movies to your hearts content.
They are NOT a peer to peer (or P2P) site with a load of illegal films. Check them out as a potential alternative to the big name brands of Blinkbox and LOVEFiLM.
Technology has advanced to the point where you can now watch movies online, from the old classics to the latest Hollywood blockbuster.
Times have certainly changed from the days of the old VHS tape players. With the introduction of the DVD, films became more more complex and high quality. So far, the Blu-Ray technology has taken things up another notch and now movies are even more realistic and even high quality with high definition films being released.
Gone are the days when you used to pop down to the video rental shop to hire a film for the evening. You can now enjoy the latest releases all from the comfort of your home and this is via the Internet. With the increasingly availability of broadband Internet, download speeds have increased. Now with fibre-optic broadband available in many areas of the UK, you can now stream movies online and it is a very pleasant experience being able to decide that you wish to watch a film and simply download a full-length feature movie directly to your home. This was not possible even 5 year ago.
What is more, as the Internet has become an increasingly important part of daily life, so are the various technological devices that we use on a daily basis like the mobile phone. Many phones now have wifi connectivity and can connect to the home broadband. Not only that, but tablet computers have become quite commonplace and these too can connect via wi-fi to the home Internet connection.
All this means is that it is not only possible to download a movie onto the computer, but now it is possible to download one and watch it directly on your mobile device like the tablet computer and even directly to your television set as many now have Internet connectivity. One of the best advantages of streaming films online over the Internet is the sheer choice that is available. From children’s titles, to horror movies, from the classics, to the latest action-packed thriller. It’s all available to you now, thanks to digital technology and fast Internet.
All this means is that for the film lover, this is a great time to be alive! You can enjoy a cinema-like experience right in the comfort of your own home. At Watch Movies Online 24/7.co.uk, we have reviewed some of the best services available for the streaming of movies online, such as Blink Box, LOVEFiLM Instant and Now TV. There are some key players in the marketplace but are they any good? We have reviewed them here and tell you which are our best picks and why.
So, for all of you movie fans out there, join us and enjoy the new film revolution that is, a true home cinema experience that is at last a reality.
Now, this is a film I had wanted to watch for a while and when it was finally released for rental, I went to my go to service that is BlinkBox.
The gist of the film is that some terrorists manage to take over the White House and only one man can stop them! Ok, whilst this sounds like a typical ‘Die Hard’ style action plot, it is and isn’t. It’s a great action movie with a load of great special effects and the tempo is maintained pretty much throughout the whole of the film.
Gerard Butler stars as the ex-Secret Service Agent who saves the day. I love action films and think this was a great one. Lots of action, far-fetched but sort of believable plot on how they took over the White House.
As with most Hollywood action films, you need to take it for what it is. A good-old, action romp. One that is thoroughly entertaining and the Blinkbox service was faultless. Again we made use of the download movie feature so the quality as great and it’s available in HD.
If you are a Die Hard fan, then you will love this film. It has all the action but without the comedy element. I would rate this 4/5. To see this at the time of writing it was £3.49 to rent the movie download and £4.49 to watch it in HD. Visit the Blinkbox site to watch it now at http://www.blinkbox.com.
