Video Downloads Are Great For Movie Lovers

Aug 17, 2007
Anyone who loves movies is likely to love movie downloads, too. The fact is this trend is becoming a big one and it's great for those who want to create large collections without having to dole out top dollar or premium house space to do so.

Video downloads are now available legally from all sorts of big movie studios and even television networks, as well. A video collection created digitally has a number of advantages over regular disk purchases, too. The biggest perks of video downloads involve the storage issues and pricing.

But, why?

Video downloads are generally a few dollars or more less than a regular DVD buy because there is no packaging issues to contend with. Plus, there's the simple fact delivery isn't an issue either. Since the companies that sell downloads save on shipping and the movie studios save on packaging, they can pass on some of these savings directly to buyers.

In regard to storage, it's a simple fact of space. It's a whole lot easier to store movies on a computer drive or a backup drive than it is to hold 100 videos in a room. There's no need for shelf after shelf or tons of DVD towers when a collection is created via video download. Management of movies and television downloads can be a whole lot easier, too. It's pretty simple to create folders on the computer to store movies by genre and it's a whole lot quicker, too.

Video downloads are becoming the favorites of many for a reason beyond storage or pricing. This reason is variety. The fact is the kinds of downloads available can be literally mind boggling. Let's look at what kinds of video downloads can be found legally:

Hit movies
Just about every new movie that hits the theaters will end up in a legal download format shortly after release. This means there's no need to run to the video store, or worse, pay top dollar at a theater to see a new release.

As the movie download business becomes more popular, many studios are going through their catalogues and offering downloads of their older movies. From the classics of the 1920s to holiday favorites of the 1980s, they can all be found via video download. And, if a title can't be found right now, it's likely it will be added soon as every major movie studio falls into place offering downloads via a number of different sites.

Television programs
As the movie studios jump on the bandwagon, so too are the television studios. Hit shows from all decades can be found by the season or by the episode via video download.

Original works
There are tons of locations to get video downloads from amateur or little known creators. These videos might not have the financial backing of some of the major movies in history, but that doesn't mean there isn't some good entertainment out there. Indie works are getting a whole new audience thanks to video downloads and the Internet.

Video downloads provide their users with an on demand aspect, price savings and storage issue reduction that regular DVD buys cannot. As this new format becomes more and more accepted, it's becoming the method of choice for buying and watching movies.
