The Digital Movie Craze

All you need is a computer or a tv, and a quality movie download site to get your movies from; and then, presto, you have a home theater!
The Perfect Home Theater
So, what makes for the perfect home movie theater? Think you need red velvet seats and a large movie screen? Nah! You can have just as much enjoyment-more than a theater experience-with much less expense. Aside from ample comfortable seating, the family pet curled up beside you, and pausing for bathroom and snack breaks-this is what the perfect home theater can look like. Be sure to connect your tablet PC to your TV via the HDMI connector to display the movie on your HD big screen TV. (Click here to see how to connect your tablet PC to a TV)
Rent Movies and Stream to your Tablet PC
There are a few options for watching rented movies on your tablet PC. These services offer rented new releases, TV shows, free movies, concerts, etc. All these services require that you download an app, but the apps are free and easily installed. Additionally, they all require that you pay a subscription fee, which in all cases is nominal.
- The Google Movies feature in the Android Market is a great choice. They offer new releases, old movies, post season TV shows, etc. Google Movies is not a monthly subscription service. You pay for the movies individually as you rent them. If you don’t rent, you don’t pay. You must have a Google account and have a credit card on file in your Google Wallet. Check out this post for more information about Google Movies –> Android Market Movies.
- Netflix has a new app which works well on an Android tablet, but you first need to subscribe and pay the monthly fee. Netflix offers pretty much the same set of movies and post-season TV shows as Google Movies, however, they have a much broader selection. With Netflix, you pay a monthly fee for unlimited movies. But if you don’t watch, you still pay. Fortunately, you can suspend your account with Netflix if you will be traveling, or will not be watching any movies for several weeks.
