What is a Movie Streaming Service?
Movie streaming services allow you to play movies, tv shows and documentaries instantly on your tv, computer or mobile device. Instead of renting DVDs and physically inserting a disk into a DVD player, you use a device such as a PS3, Roku, Apple TV or WD TV Live Hub to browse available movies or shows online and play them instantly. Movie streaming services have several benefits:
- Save time - watch your movie or show instantly
- Avoid late fees - Since there is no disk to return, you don’t have to worry about late fees
- Save money - Movie streaming services typically start at around $7.99 per month or $2.99 per movie
There are several movie streaming services for you to choose from. Based on your movie and tv preferences, some may be a better option than others.
