The internet is changing many industries today, even how we rent movies to watch in our homes. The traditional rental store is being replaced by companies that offer the option to rent movies online. And there are many advantages when you rent movies online as opposed to in store.
There is also a large streamed filmes online website, that is very popular in Japan and is called Todou. On the downside of this website is the fact that this site is written in Japanese and the bandwidth to other parts of the world is limited making it a very slow stream that is prone to stopping and not resuming. If you were fluent in reading Japanese and you did not face the bandwidth restrictions imposed on the rest of the world by that host, then that might be a great site to watch streamed movies at. It is not though.
My favorite thing to do on a cold and rainy night is to curl up on the couch with some popcorn and an old movie. I always watch old movies on nights like this, simply because I don’t want to go out in the cold to rent a movie at the movie store. That was then, this is now. Americans now have the option of renting the movies they want without the trip to the store, the late fees, and the limited selection. Thanks to companies like Netflix, Blockbuster, and Redbox, we now have the luxury of renting movies right from our computer and reliable delivery in as little time as one business day. These companies are changing the way Americans watches movies, by bringing the movie store to us.
