I am currently exploring “new media” options, namely online streaming from sites like Hulu and Netflix. Being outside of USA, this also means dabbling in the use of VPN or equivalent services.
By the way, streaming of movies and TV this is of course nothing new to me since there are already numerous ways of obtaining the same content, either via torrents or the many existing apps for iPad/Android tables which can stream movies/TV shows over the internet, regardless of the legality of the actual content. It’s more of a personal interest to see if a paid service is in any more superior than the free alternatives.
Decided to stick with Netflix only, mainly for its better user interface (across tablets, and via browser) and larger library even though in general the content is older than what can be found on hulu. In combination with Chromecast this really makes a good viewing experience!
