While many people may consider signing up with an online movie rental service, there might be one thing holding them back. Specifically, they might be worried about the quality of the online movie rental stream. It is understandable that consumers would be concerned. After all, why would anyone wish to rent a movie that they could not see or hear? However, to have such concerns betrays the fact that the consumer is confusing a movie stream with that of a webcam broadcast.
This confusion is understandable as well. Often, cable news programs will feature “live streams” from around the world that are of decidedly weak video quality. No one would want to view a movie with such poor video quality. Thankfully, they do not have to as the quality of the movie streams that are broadcast will be significantly better than what most would expect to be associated with the term stream.
Here is something consumers need to be made aware of: the quality of the video streams on these rental sites is identical to that of DVD quality. This means that the audio and video of the movie presentation will be pristine and clear. It will certainly not be the scratchy or jumpy image associated with television webcam streams. In short, when you wish to watch classic or modern films, they will be of the same quality of your home DVD. Then again, the picture quality could prove even better since some streams are offered in high definition. That alone could make the entire viewing experience completely unforgettable.
The technology to stream audio and video has improved significantly over the past several years. This has created a brave new world for online movie renting in the form of streaming pictures. Long may it reign.
