Save Money With Movies On Demand

Thanks for the article from Len Briggs

In today's economy, I just can't afford to go the movies. By the time I pack the wife and kids into the car, fill up the gas tank, drive to the theater, buy our tickets, and load up on popcorn and drinks for everyone, I'm too worried about paying the bills for the month to relax and enjoy the movie. That's why family movie night in my house comes courtesy of the movies on demand feature on our satellite TV from

I used to love the experience of going to a theater to see the latest blockbuster release. With funds so tight these days, however, I prefer not to spend a lot of cash to take the family to a film that we may end up not enjoying. It makes much more sense to catch a movie on demand. If one or more members of our clan aren't enjoying the film, they can just go into another room and do something else without making me feel like I've thrown money away. Since finding one movie that appeals to all five of us can be a challenge anyway, choosing from the wide variety of films available through the movies on demand feature is much more convenient than trying to pick a winner from the five or six movies playing at our local multiplex.

With movies on demand, the whole family can enjoy a movie, complete with snacks and drinks, in the comfort of our living room for roughly what it would cost one of us to see a new release in a theater on opening night. That makes it a heck of a lot easier for this hard-working dad to enjoy the film!
