More and more people decide not to go out to the video store to go rent a movie. This could be for many reasons. Perhaps it is inconvenient, they do not have the time to go there, their area does not have a rental store, or they are not available during the hours of operation of the rental store. This is why a lot of people are opting for online movie rentals instead.
Online movie rentals are convenient. There are two methods of renting in this way. One is to buy a plan where you make a list of the movies you want to rent over the internet and they are then sent to you. After viewing them, you send them back and can rent more. This is done by many websites and each plan is different. Each plan has a different cost associated.
For people new to online renting, a lot of companies offer a free trial period. This allows people to try out the service without having to pay anything. It lets them determine if it is an option they like and wish to pursue as opposed to going to the video store. Each site has a different free trial period. They are usually for two weeks. Within the two weeks, you can watch as many movies as you like as long as they are all returned quickly.
To download movies directly to your computer, you will also need a good internet connection. High speed internet and other types of internet where loading times are pretty much instant or very fast are the best options. Otherwise, when you try to download a movie, it might not load completely or maybe not at all. Or it could take hours. That would be a waste of money, time, and be very frustrating which is why a good online connection in so important.
This is also a good option only for people with good computers. It does not matter if it is a laptop or desktop computer, as long as it is efficient and runs well. A computer that is slow, experiences problems frequently, loads incompletely or at a halted rate, is not the best machine to use when downloading a feature length film.
This is only a good option for people who are willing to watch a movie on a computer instead of a television. Although some people have bough technology that lets them connect their computer to their television so the content on the computer can be put onto the television and viewed.
Another way of renting movies online that is even more convenient and does not involve mailing them back and fourth from the company is by streaming the movie online. This is very simple. What you do is pick the plan you want based on price, and then instead of waiting for the movie in the mail, you can instantly download it to your computer.
The basic plans that are the cheapest are around nine dollars a month. This type of plan lets you rent one movie and a time so after you mail it back, another will be sent according to your rental list. For around fourteen dollars, you can get two movies at a time. For about seventeen dollars a month, you can get three movies each time. These plans are unlimited; meaning the amount of movies you want to receive per month depends on your viewing preference and mail back timing.
That was a little information on online movie rentals. You can get the movies this way through the mail within two days depending on the company you sign up with, or you can download entire movies instantly and directly to your computer. But remember, the price of each service varies and depends on the company, their rules and regulations, and the plan you choose. And a free trial is always a good way too see if online renting is right for you.
