We get our entertainment many ways today — the internet has heralded a whole new dimension of information and data sharing. Social networks, photos, and short low quality videos started. But as internet speeds have increased it further increased the types of entertainment we could receive. Today, many of us now are watching all types of movies, TV series and videos. We’re sharing things videos with our friends through social networks.
How to Watch Movies Online
With the advent of the high speed internet, we’ve significantly enhanced our previously slow dial-up and the limited ability to view low definition text. And no video. High bandwidth applications such as entertainment, movie watching, video consumption, and social networking capabilities have almost become limitless with the advent of high speed internet connections. Unlimited cell phone data plans are just recently being adopted due to their now lower prices. Today we watch movies online via our cell phones and home internet connections.
Online Applications to Watch Movies
Free movies and TV shows with a subscription to Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Vudu, (lots of u’s) along with Youtube and other sharing systems all have grown in scale and presence. Streaming movies online has become an entertainment past time for both kids and families.
Cable TV, Satellite providers along with some cellular phone networks have recently gotten into the game as well providing almost too many services to choose from.
Watching Streaming Movies With the Right Technology
To get the best experience from watching streaming movies, you have to have the appropriate equipment and technology. People will watch movies with mobile devices (tablet, or phone), laptop computer or flat screen television.
With a flat screen television, the newer models are “smart TV’s” which allow them to pull up applications to watch streaming shows online. You’ll also need a high-speed wireless connection in your house to create the best experience. These apps could be for those I listed above such as Netflix or Vudu. If you don’t have a smart TV, you’ll need a device that makes your TV smart — this would do the heavy lifting of pulling up the appropriate streaming channels. Devices such as Amazon Fire stick or Roku are easy to setup do the trick here.
Once the external device is connected to both your TV and the internet, you setup an account with the service …. if you have a Fire Stick and already have Amazon Prime, you get to watch free online movies. Same with Netflix.
The other Technology options including streaming movies on an Ipad / tablet or phone — these are great since they’re so portable though at the same time the screens tend to be quite small. You end up losing much of the resolution of these movies. So there’s some give or take there.
Finally, a computer or laptop. With these options, you don’t have to connect a separate device — they have the ability to stream movies without adding anything more. Just go to your favorite movie streaming service, log in, and find what you want to watch.
The only other think you may want to consider using is external speakers since they may give you a more enjoyable experience since the sound will be more powerful. This would especially important with action movies or movies with a powerful soundtrack such as The Edge of Tomorrow or Black Panther.
