Watching new or old movies is always fun and I somehow feel that watching a good movie is like a good way to relax your mind. But for me, being a mom of a toddler, it is very difficult for me to arrange the time to go and watch movies in theatres. Another thing is that kids are not always fond of every movie and it is difficult to make them sit for 2-3 hours in one place. Hence, I now prefer to watch movies online
in the comfort of my home.
Today, there are numerous options available online when it comes to watching movies online. One platform that I personally prefer going to is ZEE5. They have a spectacular collection of movies in
multiple languages which gives me a lot of great options to choose from.
Apart from the above-mentioned reason, there are some more reasons why I like watching movies online now.
i) Time - These days the value of time is much more important than it was earlier and everybody wants to utilise their time in better ways. Watching a movie in theatre means you have to spend good 4-5 hours in taking tickets to travel to watch the movie and travel back, etc.. But when you are opting to watch movies online, the time is based on your preference. You can watch while sleeping, cooking, taking rest or doing other works. So here, online movie streaming wins.
ii) Convenience - Watching movies online is very convenient. Whether I wish to watch movies in the noon or midnight, I get to decide the time. Also, in case I am travelling to low network areas, I can even download the movie to watch it later. I can go on and on about how online streaming makes things convenient. But let’s move on to the next point now.
iii) Comfort - When watching a movie online at home, you don't need to dress up. You can watch it wearing casuals or anything that you are comfortable in. Also, in terms of playback, you have the freedom to pause, forward, backwards the movie as per your wish. But the best part is that you get to openly react (laugh, cry, scream) and bring out your emotions which we can’t do in a theatre (without making things awkward).
iv) Saving - Saving money will be the last but not the least option. Movie tickets are really expensive these days including taxes and all. However, with online streaming platforms, the subscription costs tend to be incredibly low. For example, a ZEE5 Premium subscription costs about Rs 99 per month (pay via PayTM and you get 50% cashback). This makes it much more affordable than purchasing a single
So, those were my reasons for watching movies online. As I am pregnant for the second time, all I want to do is lie down on my bed, wrap myself in a cosy blanket and watch my favourite movies online.
