Have you ever wanted to stream some of your favorite Disney, Fox, Sony, Universal, or Warner Bros movies online? The problem is that you only have one device to watch the movie on—so you have to choose between watching the movie on your computer or watching the movie on your phone or tablet. Well, there’s a better solution. Read this article to find out how to stream movies from Disney, Fox, Sony, Universal, and Warner Bros from any device you like!
Who needs an entertainment package
If you’re not looking for anything fancy with your cable package, you could save as much as $30 per month by opting for a less expensive entertainment package — one that offers fewer channels than what you would normally get if you got all of them separately (you can always add channels later). Depending on how much TV you watch, that can add up to several hundred dollars in savings each year faerie bliss. You might also consider buying a media player like Apple TV or Roku to stream TV without wires around your home; they offer tons of content at little cost relative to traditional cable packages and satellite service providers. And unlike cable packages or satellite services, streaming video doesn’t require a long-term contract so it’s easy to cancel at any time!
Step 1: Choose Your Platforms
All of these services allow you to watch streaming TV and movies on your computer or mobile device, but which one is best for you? You’ll want to consider a few things: How many TV shows and movies do you typically watch? Are you more likely to stream on-demand content or does live television make up a bigger portion of your viewing? What will be available on each platform in terms of sports, news, kids programming and other genres? And are there any hidden costs associated with each service (e.g., equipment rentals).
Step 2: Choose Your Services
There are a lot of services out there that let you stream movies online—but which one is right for you? Depending on what you’re looking for, your best bet may be Hulu or Netflix, which both offer high-quality selection at fair prices. However, if you already subscribe to cable or a video-on-demand service like Dish Network or DirecTV Now, your best choice might be PlayStation Vue or DirecTV Now (though don’t forget Sling TV is always an option). In any case, make sure whatever service(s) you choose meet your personal needs as well as professional standards. Otherwise? You won’t use them! (And who wants that?)
Step 3: Sign Up
You’ll need a free or paid account with each of these services in order to stream movies on your computer or set-top box. While some of these sites are known as online video stores, they’re different than Netflix in that they also offer additional products like games and other digital entertainment. But beware: many of these streaming services require a monthly subscription fee to access all of their content (and many don’t even offer a free trial).

Step 4: Add Titles
You can watch a number of popular anime (Japanese animation) shows online for free on Funimation and Crunchyroll . You’ll find an entire library of everything from Naruto to One Piece in both English dubs as well as subtitled versions. It might not be live TV, but it sure beats paying upwards of $6 per episode on Amazon Instant Video or Apple iTunes—not that there’s anything wrong with them… Just looking out for you here… Hint: A lot of devices can cast video streams onto your TV screen, which is also great when you don’t feel like sitting in front of a computer!
Step 5: Watch Away!
Once you’ve got all of your newly purchased movies loaded onto your computer, there’s one last thing left to do—watch them! Don’t worry: that’s what home theater PCs are for! With a projector setup in your living room and a comfy couch near it, you can sit back with some popcorn while watching every movie that ever played in a movie theater—in digital quality. Your friends will want to come over just so they can be jealous! They’ll wonder how you have such a great setup when they don’t. They’ll ask if you’re rich or famous or something equally silly. You won’t tell them about your secret source for buying these movies, but if asked directly, don’t lie about it—it’s not illegal to buy these things online (yet). Just say that you know someone who knows someone. That way, everyone wins!
Bonus : Watch Anime Online (or Free)
If you’re a fan of anime films or series but don’t have time to watch them on television (or pay for cable), consider trying a subscription service like Crunchyroll or FunimationNow. Both are international streaming sites that host thousands of anime episodes; they work a little differently than cable, so check out my reviews (and their free trials) before signing up for one (or both). Either way, you can still stream countless animated films for free!
Bonus : Watch TV Shows Online (or Free)
As long as you have a computer or smartphone, you have access to thousands of hours of television shows. The best sites are free and some even offer ad-free viewing—for free! If you’re trying to lose weight while watching your favorite shows (instead of bingeing on TV), try cutting back on what you eat while watching your show. You’ll be less likely to overindulge if it doesn’t taste good!
