As the world gradually becomes more digital, more of life gradually goes online. One such example is entertainment, with streaming services such as Netflix offering an abundance of shows and movies online. In fact, when it comes to movies, online streaming is more favorable than cinemas because online movies are generally cheaper, becoming more popular and more content is produced.
The monthly fee for Netflix can be as low as $7.99 for their basic plan. Watching one movie at the cinema can cost about that much, but only for one movie. With Netflix, users can watch even more movies during the very same month and pay much less than it would take to watch the same movie at cinemas. Streaming services really gives movie-goers more for their money, unlike cinemas.
Streaming services are also getting bigger. Netflix is producing more original content each month. They are also making more feature-length movies, some of which have been well-received. And it is not just Netflix doing that. Amazon recently joined the game, and already started producing movies. Disney recently announced their intention to make a streaming service, called Disney Play, which will launch in 2019. Disney Play will have new movies, including some older ones which will no longer be available on Netflix. As online streaming becomes more popular, cinemas could become more obsolete.
Some may say that movies in cinemas are of a much better quality and quantity than Netflix films, and that more people are watching them. This may be true, but Netflix is producing more movies, and once Disney Play launches, people will be able to watch movies like Star Wars and Marvel, along with other Disney movies not available in cinemas.
For these reasons, watching movies on streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon or the upcoming Disney Play is better than watching movies in cinemas. As these streaming services expand, cinemas may become a thing of the past.
