Five Best Websites for Online Television and Movies
The Internet has made watching television online almost like second nature. Back in the early days of online video watching it was not so easy to pull up a chair and watch your favorite shows. However, technology has changed, thank God, and watching online television is only limited by your computer’s hardware. There are quite a few awesome sites out there now and most networks have even jumped into the fray in hopes of cashing in on a lucrative advertising revenue stream. In this article we will only be discussing the top five websites for streaming movies and television.
1. AOLN2TV is a website started by Warner communications shortly after the merger of Time Warner and AOL. This site allows the user to watch older television shows from the 80s and 90s. Some of the best known shows by people that are children of those eras might be Max Headroom and Freddy’s Nightmares. However there are a slew of other shows and even some full length movies. If you are feeling a bit nostalgic, or even just miss your old favorite show I highly recommend heading over to AOLN2TV and checking it out, you will not be sorry that you did. http://television.aol.com/in2tv
2. Hulu has now come into its own and is one of the leading sites on the Internet for online movies and television. At first this website was a bit slow and had mostly small clips of movies and recent television shows. However, the content has grown and it now rivals the larger networks for content. Hulu is the brainchild of NBC Universal and News Corp. These two companies saw that there was a new market for online streaming media and had the idea to cash in on a growing phenomenon. The videos have ads spaced sporadically through them, but they only last for thirty seconds at a time which makes them less intrusive. http://www.hulu.com/
3. Joost is another great site which streams television shows to your computer via the Internet. The site is well organized into categories which makes finding that favorite show a breeze. However, if you are looking for a movie to pass the time with, then Joost will certainly have something for everyone. Joost is a community driven site which means that you can even find some very interesting videos submitted by its members such as independent films or just silly stuff like what you would see on YouTube. http://www.joost.com/
4. G4tv is an online television network site that appeals to the more geeky side of television. Since I am 85% geek I felt that I would be remiss if I did not mention this great site and its awesome content. G4tv is geared towards the tech crowd and gamers and offers the viewer the opportunity to watch their favorite tech g4tv shows online. Everything from tech news, product reviews and the latest and greatest in tech gadgetry is available here. http://www.g4tv.com/
5. Tvshack is the ultimate in online television and movie viewing. Thousands of episodes of every imaginable television show can be watched from this one website. Nevertheless, even the movie selection is impressive and there are no commercials. The nice thing about this site is that you can find your shows alphabetically, or browse by category. You will be able to find almost any show that you would like to see at tvshack. http://tvshack.net/tv/
