Not that long ago, the only way you could rent movies was to go to the local video store, spend about an hour walking around looking at the shelves to see if you could find some movies you may like and then hope they were available when you got to the counter. Once you’ve watched the movies, you had to worry about getting them back to the store on time to avoid late fees. Today, the whole world has changed which means you don’t even have to leave the house to rent HD movies for you and your family to enjoy.
So who is watching movies and where? About 44% of the people are viewing movies at home once a week or more. Another 41% are doing this occasionally, and only 14% say they rarely or never watch movies in their homes. The 30 to 39 age group is most likely to do this (57%). Those 65 are least likely (34%).

Animated movies – How can you go wrong here? You can’t. Kids’ gomovies are made to make you feel good, and they’re never going to push you over the edge in terms of being too sad or scary. Often times fantastical, kids’ movies are a great way to escape into another world for a couple of hours. You’re also most likely not making a huge time commitment with these films, so take advantage of your attention span mirroring that of a 5 year old and indulge in something silly and sweet.
Streaming video services enable you to select from thousands of movies, both new releases as well as old favorites just like a video store. You don’t have to go out in the snow, rain or cold to return or rent movies from a video store. All you have to do is click on the movie you want to watch and you are done, plus you can watch all the movies you want for one monthly fee. Streaming companies also have the option to send DVD’s through the mail. All you have to do is pick which ones you want and they will mail them right out. This is another way to expand your home entertainment, especially when you take advantage of special promotions and deals that are offered from the companies.
Another easy way to watch movies at home is getting them through Pay Per View. With new movies every week, you will be able to choose from new DVD releases, or at least within a few weeks of release, without having to make a trip to the video store to rent or buy it.
It is actually quicker and easier to find and organise the movies you want to watch online. The online systems are very user friendly. This saves a lot of time and hassle.
