5 Easy Options for Viewing Video Downloads

Aug 18, 2007
If you're tired of running to the movie rental store to pick up something to watch, there's no reason to make the trek any longer. If you have a computer with a broadband connection, a whole world of viewing is at your fingertips thanks to video download options now available.

With everything from the latest movies and television shows to original productions not available anywhere else, the Internet opens up viewing choices that many didn't even know were possible. Not only will video download buyers find options from North America, there's even content available from just about every country on the globe.

The problem many face when dealing with video downloads, however, is the quandary that presents itself for actually viewing the rentals or purchases. Very few people prefer to watch their movies or television shows on small screens standard with most computers. Fortunately, that's not the only viewing option open for video download fans.

Let's take a look at the possibilities:

Enlarged monitors: Some computer users go for the easiest possible method for making their downloads more viewing friendly. There are monitors that are now on the market than enable television quality, or better, directly from a computer. These flat-screen versions can even handle cable input so they can double as a TV at all times. They can be a little pricey, but they do offer impressive graphics capabilities, and since they serve two purposes, some people feel they are solid buys.

TV/PC interfaces: There are some devices available that allow for a wireless signal to be sent from a computer directly to a television. This means they can read some (if not all) video downloads directly from the PC and air them on the television. This type of device is one of the easiest for non-tech savvy people to use, but these models can cost a fair amount.

PC/TV hookup: For those who have their main television sets close to their PCs, all that's necessary to make the connection is a special cable. One end plugs into the computer, the other into the TV and viola instant larger screen viewing!

Portable devices: Some people love to buy video downloads, but don't have the time to watch them at home. For these folks, portable devices can provide all the viewing screen they need. Granted, these monitors are very small, even smaller than standard PC screens, but they offer some great on the go viewing options.

Gaming devices: Some current generation video game consoles can serve as links between PCs and TVs. The connections are quick and easy to make and the content for this type of interface is constantly being added to. In some cases, the consoles are even capable of "speaking to" PCs without the need for an actual hard wired connection to them.

As video on demand services over the Internet become more popular, the links between computers and larger screen TVs are becoming more seamless. The ultimate goal of this industry is to allow people to access their video download content from any room in a home and even on the go. That goal is moving closer and closer to realization.
