Hi friend, Although I have a fast internet connection, I have a broadband connection with speed I noticed while buffering a movie is about 100-130 kbps. It is not a slow internet speed at all. But at that speed still divx movie take a lot of time to buffer, thats why I usually opt for less quality video to watch movie. divx files are much heavier to buffer to in place of flash videos. Thankis for your response.

I do not watch movies online. Rather than I like to purchase it via shop or like to watch them on theater.

HI friend, It is nice to watch movies in theaters as picture quality is amazing, however most of us would not have money to pay for watching movies. Also once you decide to watch movie online, you can watch it any time no restriction of time. Enjoy Mylotting.

I watch them on Netflix instant occasionally. They can be pretty good. My only beef is that my computer is pretty slow so they have to stop and "buffer" occasionally. We pay like $8 to rent one DVD at a time and to get unlimited online watching ability (although there's a limited selection of what you can watch instantly). It's definitely worth it to me though.

Hi maezee, $8 to rent one DVD at a time is it not a very high price, for this type of stuff. Why not you upgrade your computer system by spending some more money to it? Once you upgrade your system, there are a lot of option for you to watch these movies for free. For me upgradetion is far better option as for 3 dvd price you can buy new 1 gb ram and so on... Enjoy mylotting.

I do go to cinema occasionally but mostly i download movies. I would never pay for watching movie online and i never watched it online because of bad quality...that is if you meant sites that offer you dvd rentals for money etc. Why pay for it if you can find it for free...that's the point of internet in my opinion.

Hi friend, In downloading a movie from various places have a huge problem. Firstly downloading speed is much slower than buffering speed of a video. Also, I have founded that online movies comes much before then the downloadable links. Thanks for your response...

Yes, I do watch movies online eventhough I mainly watch TV series. The quality is great, but of course it requires you to have a super fast internet connection. Try to go to ovguide.com then type the tittle you are looking for. Goodluck!

Hi friend, Yah high speed network connection is surely required. If we talk about in terms of quality, quality is not as good as in dvd-rips movies as seen by me. Might be some of the old movies seems good, but most of them are not as good as we can rate them above or equal to 8/8 (a/v).

Hi friend, Yeh I can tell, but for this you have to tell me first what type of movie you are looking for like bollywood,hollywood,tollywood or something else. Or you just search watch movie_name free online in any of the search engine, you will be amazed to see there are number of sites who are providing this service for free. Thanks for your response.

i don't watch movies online because i don't have a fast enough internet connection. and i agree it is way to expensive to watch in a theater its like 40+ here for tickets and food and thats more than i used to spend on gas in a week. i just get netflix it isn't instant unless you have the watch on your computer thing but as i said i can't but it is really fast and i'm pretty sure they pay more in postage than i pay a month to get them but i also know i can keep a movie i really like to watch it a few more times before sending it back which is cool.

I watch movies online but I also watch movies in the cinema. It just depends on what type of movie it is. There are some high graphics and movies with great special effects. Those are the types I'd like to see on the big screen. For animation, dramas, I choose to watch online.

i am not a big fan of movies and i don't prefer watching them online. also here the network is not very stable (speed) and so streaming video is almost impossible. takes a lot of time buffering which makes watching online movies meaningless.

I love going to the movies because the atmosphere is much more different when you are sitting at home. However, if you are watching a movie online, it has its' advantage where you can always press the 'pause' button. I usually watch movies online where I don't have to pay, but it is sometimes very slow to load and it's best to download, but it will take a longer time though according to some of my friends as I have actually borrowed the TV series from them, which they have downloaded.

I always watched movies on cinemas but since we got our internet, i have always watched my movies online, it is free, a although some links may be broken there are still ones worth watching. You can even get to watch pirated and cinema copies online,and there and DVD copies as well, Yes internet has its pros and cons, To really experience a good movie at home all you need is a 5.1 sound system and then i attached my computer to my large screen television w/c is 34" LCD, wallla it's a cinema at your living room. My kids enjoy it, my wife and friend as well.

i had a part time job in the cinema in sophomore year, since then, i have the habit of going to cinema halls to watch movings, but there are so many movings, i can't afford them, so i also watch movings online.

Hi. I prefer to watch movies at home. People in general can be annoying in a cinema, between cellphones ringing to popcorn crunching in your ear. If I want to go to the toilet I want to pause the movie so I don't miss anything. I don't watch movies online. For me, it is much better watching movies on the television.
