Subscription Based Streaming



Cost: $8.99 (basic streaming – no DVD’s – $107.88 per year)

Netflix has got to be one of the most recognized sources to get your media fix these days. Even though I still have cable coming to the house, I still have a Netflix login. For the price of going out for lunch – You get access to gigantic library of TV episodes, Movies & documentaries. Quite simply – It’s number 1 for a reason folks!

huluplus_thumbHulu Plus

Cost: $7.99 per month ($95.88 per year)

While you can enjoy a large amount of Hulu content for free, Hulu Plus offers you access to a much bigger library of TV episodes. I use to call myself a Hulu Plus member, although I eventually decided to cancel my membership once I was caught up on all of my shows. My biggest issue with Hulu Plus is even with the membership fees, you still have to sit through commercials!

amazon-prime_thumbnailAmazon Prime

Cost: $99 per year

Don’t be scared off by the large upfront cost of Amazon Prime, that 100 bucks will net you a ton of great user benefits, Including: Access to to Free E-Books, a monstrous library of music, free streaming of thousands of TV episodes & movies and Free two day shipping on all your orders from If you frequent Amazon for your shopping needs, this really is a no brainer.


Cost(not disclosed – contact your cable provider for details)

Epix is a different animal – You actually purchase this through your cable provider. Once you’ve subscribed you get access to the Epix cable channel & a huge library of recently released films through your set top devices, playstation, web interface, smart phone – you name it. Hopefully they will decide to offer a stand alone service outside of your Cable provider in the future as it seems like an awesome addition to add to your streaming media library.



Cost: $8.00 per month

Redbox offers over 6,000 movies to choose from and the flexability to return and rent new movies from any RedBox kiosk! While it doesn’t quite have the expansive library to rival Netflix yet – It does have the distinct advantage of being able to leverage the very abundant RedBox kiosks you see everywhere. With a Free Trial and for only $8 bucks a month, There is no reason to not give it a try.



On Demand Movie Streaming


youtube-movies_thumbYoutube Movies

If you are like me, you probably didn’t know that Youtube offered an on-Demand movie service. Stream your favorite movies by browsing the already familiar YouTube interface to Rent or Buy your favorite flicks. If you are an Android user with a Google Play account – Your payment information should carry over and allow you to quickly make your first purchase.


Quite honestly – I feel this is BlockBusters last ditch effort to avoid the inevitable. Years of stubborn executives who lacked the initiative to seize a market where they clearly had a foot hold has led them to where they are today. My personal views aside – Blockbuster is an online, on-demand movie service that allows you to rent & stream new releases. Prices are about on par with what you might pay when renting a movie from TWC or Comcast.


Vudu is a video on demand service, which was recently bought by Wal-Mart. Vudu allows you to rent & stream full length movies to any number of devices.

Available On These Platforms.


Play-Store_thumbGoogle Play

The Google Play store has more than great apps. You can also download your favorite movies, TV shows & music and sync them effortlessly across your Google Play account.




Just like the Google Play Store, Apples App store gives you access to a massive library of titles to buy or rent. And with iTunes it makes it even easier to enjoy your media on your mobile devices as well as your PC.
