I just bought a Nook tablet, mainly for reading, but it connects to the internet so I can use it to stream movies and TV on Netflix, Hulu or whatever else. It's a bigger screen than my smartphone (which I could also stream movies and TV from), and kind of a cool option to have. My household has subscribed to Netflix since 2005, and it's definitely come a long way from just getting DVDs in the mail (although it's still fun to get the little red envelope among all the bills...especially if you've forgotten which movie is next in the queue).
We watch a lot of the streaming content through our X-Box, to the point that we don't go out to see movies in the threatre much anymore. I have to really want to see it on the big screen to get me out of my cozy house with a zillion entertainment options. The quality of TV shows is so excellent now; watching a series like Breaking Bad or Justified or even Vampire Diaries (for its delicious fun and crazy-fast plots) is just as entertaining as going out to a movie.
How about you? Do you use any movie or TV streaming service? Which do you like best? Do you find that you watch things on portable devices, or do you prefer to sit and watch from a standard TV?
