So Many Options When Downloading Movies

By George Benson

If you go to Blockbuster and rent a movie it can cost a minimum of $5.30. If you rent at least four movies a week the total comes to around $20 a month. That only covers four movies that will you have to return on time within a week.

One type of site that has become very popular is sites that actually do not have any movies on them. There are plenty of websites that just has the links to the actual movie. These sites have become a big internet fad for both the movie watchers and people that design web pages.

There are plenty of examples on the internet. One site that has recently gained popularity is the site Currently, there are roughly 600 movie links on this site to choose from.

So, if you are looking for one to put some movies on, what are some of the products that you can buy? How much can you plan on spending? How hard is it to put movies that you downloaded on your Ipod?

As stated above, websites like this do not have any actual movies on them. When you click on the picture or the link to the movie, you are redirected to another page that has the file. A majority of the time it is a streaming video.

By having only the link, your webpage can be relatively small therefore it keeps site maintenance relatively easy. It also frees the designer from any legal problem because they do not possess the actual movie. They only have the html addresses to the movies.

When you select your movie online that you want to watch then, Netflicks goes the extra mile and offers a selection that is similar to the movie you are about to watch. They also compile a list of all the movies you watched, how much of the movie you watched and the date you watched it.

Another neat feature allows you to pick up where you left off. If you leave during a movie on any other site, you will later have to find your spot. On Netflicks ?Watch Instantly? it bookmarks the exact second you stop watching and allows you to start there.

Another product that Apple has released was the Iphone. While it does not have the same movie features as the Ipod touch, it does have excellent internet abilities. With the Iphone, you can access movie sites and not have to worry about loading the movies.

Sites like this are also full of annoying advertisements and pop-ups. The best thing to do is to turn your pop-up blocker on until you find the movie you want. Then turn it off because a new window needs to open when you click on the link.

Netflicks sure beats the alternative of driving and renting movies. It is like an all you can watch buffet. This can all be done on your computer anywhere. A basic membership allows you to watch from two different computers at the same time. This feature allows people in the same house to watch different films at the same time. - 16651
