Movies and TV Shows services and Apps Are Free Almost All Over the Place!

When it comes to owning free services and products or even applications, you will get this hardcore investor or buyer or fanboy tell you "Well, if you are not paying for it, then you not supporting the creators of that particular service or product or show". Well, that is not 100% true especially when it comes to apps and websites that offer you to view for free. You are actually paying because there is data or internet needed in order to stream or download for the most part. Even clicking on the particular link or ad is giving them revenue. Not even sure why people become butt-hurt about free content.

When it comes to watching TV or going to the movie theaters, some shows or movies are not even worth viewing due to movie trailers or tv show sneak peeks because some just giveaway too much of whats suppose to happen and half the time you put all the movie trailers together and figure out how the movie begins and ends. Not all TV providers or channels are even worth the 100s of dollars that consumers are dishing out month to month to a year. Prices may be down right now but that next year they will go up and keep going up. It is not worth consumers to waste their money on cable or satellite providers when they are only viewing a few channels and movies. Especially if you have a full-time job and kids or in school full-time, you really don't have that time to flip the channel to channel or go to every movie at a theater or watch every college, high school or pro sporting event. There is no way in the world average consumer could do that. So with the help of services like Youtube, Vudu, Crackle, and even Redbox, these are just some examples that help consumers save a ton of cash from these giant providers that really don't offer any type basic packages for a good low price and that's even worth considering. Now some viewers and readers might actually disagree and that's fine. Maybe they feel they are getting a good deal and offer based on the bundles and first-time customers scams. That's ok. But for those of you who feel they are paying too much for cable bundles and feel they are being ripped off based on their experiences using the product and services. This article is for you! This is based on my experiences and trials and setup and how I use my mobile devices and smart TVs. Majority of these streaming services are standalone apps and websites that you can get for free or a pay a low price for them monthly and some are even yearly. Now, are they worth it? I'll let you all decide that. Feel free to leave a comment below.
