When was the last time you actually went to a video store to rent a movie? No one does this anymore. That is why most of the big video stores have closed down. This is all because of the Internet and the advancements in technology that make everything faster, easier and more convenient for us. Just like you can now gamble and play online poker games instead of going to a casino to play, you can get whatever movie you want online and not have to go to the movie theater to watch it or to the video store to rent it.
Do you remember having to rewind your VHS tapes before bringing them back to the video store? While a lot of us have very fond memories of these times, but these things are things of the past. Now it’s all about the internet and getting your movies right away. You are able to download movies directly from sites and have them on your computers in minutes.
In this middle period when the Internet was kicking off, but there still were no stores for movies online, there was a lot of piracy and you could get illegally released copies of movies from peer to peer programs. Even though you were getting these for free, you never really knew what the quality of the file was before you downloaded it, and of course, you were taking risks by breaking the law and downloading movies illegally. Now you can download movies legally and get them in the highest quality possible, directly from the distributors.
There are a lot of sites that specialize in offering movies online. Of course, the biggest one and the most popular one is probably Netflix. That is the site that is most commonly used by people to download all of the latest movies. But a site like Netflix is not even limited to new movies; you can even find classic movies in their offers. The only thing that limits these types of companies is the movie production companies that they have deal with. Netflix has agreement with most of the biggest product companies that own most of the biggest blockbuster movies from Hollywood, but if you were looking for smaller indie movies, then you would probably have to go to another site.
Vongo is probably your best bet for these types of movies, because that is what this site is known for – small, independent movies that are not coming necessarily from the big machine of Hollywood.
No matter where you get your movies, one thing is clear. You will be able to download movies online in amazing quality and you will probably never have to leave your house again to see a movie. Of course, some people do enjoy the experience of a movie theater, but your chances of ever having a reason to go to a video store to rent a DVD to watch are probably slim to none.
