Where to watch full-length movies online

Watching feature films online is becoming a growing craze. Rather than renting from a video store or buying films, people are taking advantage of rental websites which offer the opportunity to stream films from their sites. This article looks at some of the legal options available.

LoveFilm

LoveFilm offers its customers the choice of streaming films from their website rather than waiting for the delivery of discs. To take advantage of this service on a projector or a large TV, you will require access to either an internet-enabled TV, or a PlayStation 3 console. The films can be streamed directly from the website, and unlike your subscription which dictates how many discs you can have at any one time, the streaming is unlimited. LoveFilm is a reasonably priced service, with packages ranging between £10 and £20 a month. It also allows users to rent games as well as movies and television programmes.

Blink-box

Blink-box is a UK-based streaming service. Unlike LoveFilm, it allows users to watch a film and pay a one-off fee per film. The fee usually ranges between 99p and £3.50. The benefit of the price per rental scheme is that users are not paying for something that they are not using. They are only charged when they actually purchase a rental, rather than a monthly subscription price. Blink-box also allows members to buy movies, but again, these are only playable on your PC rather than owning the disc. This may be a drawback for some members.

Sky Player

The Sky Player service is provided as part of a subscriber’s package. If you are a movies subscriber, then you can watch whole movies on your TV. The choice on the Sky Player can be limited as the genre of films available. This is the case especially if you don’t subscribe to the full movies package. This is the most expensive option as Sky packages can be as expensive as around £55 a month, depending on what you subscribe to. Films are available in high definition if the users have purchased a Sky HD box. It should be noted that if customers cancel their subscription to Sky Movies, then they will lose any films that they have on their hard drives.

Conclusion

There are a number of other services available, but the three mentioned above are a good overview of the options. The ability to stream movies on your computer will be affected by the speed of your computer and the speed of your internet service. Whether or not, you want to pay a subscription, will affect the choices available. So, search movies' sites and you’ll find the best service for you.
