... Checking out a DVD movie from a local library is free.
I remember doing a double take at a local public library on seeing a sign, "Adult Videos". (Outside libraries, that's usually a rather specific euphemism!)
Maybe citizens don't use the resources their local library provides. Checking out a DVD movie from a local library is free.
I suppose there are clubs to exchange movies - something such as a book exchange. That's what a library is for.
I don't see a reason to watch a movie more than once - let alone multiple times, unless it has complitated plot which may be difficult to follow. Unfortunately few movies are made that way.
My local library has DVD's available to check out.
Rabbit Proof Fence is an interesting movie. Movies such as that are far and few between.
I'm not always patient, last week I found Rabbit Proof Fence for next to nothing, but I had paid much more some years ago. Great movie, I like movies that expose the consequences of political decisions. Another one is I, Daniel Blake.
For those of you who actually go to the movies, I just saw Blade Runner 2049, this past Tuesday. It was very stylish, beautifully shot, and occasionally quite LOUD. It was also LONG at over 2-1/2 hours, but in the final analysis, it was pretty good, especially to see how the world of 2019 and Rick Deckard had been evolved over 30 years.Now I'm looking forward to Thor: Ragnarok, which looks to be a fun romp.
I've never had cable TV, just an antenna on the roof, but it's been years since I watched any TV. Don't like anything they have on anymore, plus, I hate commercials.
A few months ago, I tried Netflix and a couple of other internet movie & TV subscriptions but stopped because their selection is very poor.
I like so few movies, that I rent DVDs to see if I want to buy. There're lots of movies I know I won't like & so I don't rent them. I only rent about 1 out of 10 movies made, and out of those I rent, I only like about 1 out of 10.
Once in a while, I'll check the selection at 2nd hand shops and the $5 bins at stores.
Today, I looked through a $3.75 bin at Walmart and found one I've been looking for, for 30 years. The Incredible Shrinking Woman starring Lily Tomlin, Charles Grodin, & Ned Beatty.
In that $3.75 bin, I saw many movies that I already own and love. DVDs that I've paid $10 to $15 for. That happens in all the low-priced bins. I should have patience like you, Plinius, and wait years until the price comes down.
We always buy used dvd's rather than rent or go to theaters. I don't like the crowds, the noise nor the big screen. Rick can't go to a theater simply because after his stroke affecting peripheral vision, he can't see the whole screen, no matter where we sit. Also the sound drives him crazy through his hearing aids.
I 'd guess that contributors to this forum no longer are limited to network broadcasts and have some sort of 'cable' TV.
'Cable' TV doesn't seem to be much better than broadcast TV..
I heard that internet subscriptions to movies and TV through Netflicks, Apple TV, and ROKU is a good way to go.
No wonder Hollywood, and the conglomerate broadcast networks are worried about viewership and advertising dollars to the point that they want to controll speed/bandwidth of the internet.
Plinius, I like your idea.
