Top 5 Movie Streaming Websites

Top 5 Movie Streaming Websites

Streaming movies and music is becoming the more common way of consuming digital content. It's easier than ever to access. Not only that, but it's more convenient and if you know the best sites, then it's best of all-FREE!

This is a straight-up no nonsense post giving you the best sites to date. From my own experience in testing these sites, I've found that there isn't just one go to site for everything. Instead, you'll have to use multiple sites to get everything you want. With that in mind, I've found almost everything that I could possibly think of using these 5 sites.

These sites work best on PC's, Chromebooks, Laptops, and Notebooks. They work with well with browsers using Ad Blocker. These sites don't work well with phones. Who wants to burn their data watching movies on the tiny screen anyway?

Try it out for yourself, look up a favorite and stream it, or better yet cast it to your big screen TV, and have a great movie night with your family and loved ones, while making yourself look tech savvy and cool.

If you know of other quality sites to add to this list, please mention them in the comments below.

Be a good friend and forward this post to others you think might be interested in streaming for free.

NFL Now - Stream 4 Free

The NFL has merged their NFL Now program into their NFL Mobile app in what they call an effort to simplify delivery of their digital content. The real reason is that they failed to attract enough users to maintain this as a separate app.

The NFL Now will continue to feature content from the NFL Media, along with offerings from all 32 teams. There will be a live show, giving the latest news and information, keeping fans up to date on everything NFL that will be an alternative to the NFL Network. This program will also offer “GameDay Blitz” on Sundays. Other live programming includes “The Rich Eisen Show” and “Fantasy Live.” You will also get the latest press conferences, special events including the upcoming 2016 Draft Live.

If you want access to this show, and don't want to pay or use the NFL mobile app, this is the link to gain access to stream it live for FREE!

For all football fans, this program is merely an extra supplement to the NFL Network programming. I don't think it's better, it's merely something extra.

Sia - This Is Acting - Review

What do Adele, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Shakira, and Icona Pop all have in common? Answer: They all were offered the tracks that make up Sia's new solo album.

This Is Acting is Sia's seventh studio album. She says that the success of 1000 Forms of Fear, and it's hit single "Chandelier" encouraged her to continue releasing new material for herself.

The album's title and concept come together like this..."I'm calling it This Is Acting because they are songs I was writing for other people, so I didn't go in thinking 'this is something I would say'. It's more like play acting. It's fun." Sia explains that when she's writing songs for others that she puts herself in a frame of mind that is like the person she is writing for, in other words play acting.

So, when the top-tier artists turn down or reject a song that she thinks would play well on the radio, Sia will keep those for herself, and that's exactly how Sia's new album came together.

Sia says of the songs on her new album..."I feel like they're hits, but nobody wanted them" - "So I thought, 'Let's see, as an experiment, if I'm right.” These are the tracks that make up her latest solo album, essentially a collection of rejects. All of the tracks were intended for others except for "One Million Bullets.”

If after all of that you're wondering why should you even bother buying or listening to an album full of songs rejected from today's top stars, I'd just say that their pass is Sia's gain. There are several tracks here that should be singles. The best tracks here are “Bird Set Free” - “Unstoppable” - “Reaper” - “Move Your Body” and you could pick others as well. It's an album of songs collected over a couple of years time, and these tracks are all really strong. It's hard to imagine why they weren't picked up by those artists, but for sure this is a very strong album with many great songs.

For those unfamiliar with Sia, she fits the genre of Pop, Electro-Pop, and R&B Soul. Her look doesn't fit her sound or expectations, but this is a really great album, and is already her most successful to date. Check it out. You'll be glad you did.

Birdy - Beautiful Lies - Review

Birdy flew high with her debut album five years ago. She has since struggled to maintain altitude. With her third album, she is trying to establish herself as a singer/songwriter and not just a cover artist. She''s young, talented, and only 19. Her third album is being called a “coming of age” album. With that in mind I'll just say that it’s definitely an adult-oriented production that tries to mimic Adele.

Most of the songs here are slow moving ballads with dominant vocals and piano. The songs are about growing pains and survival. Birdy's warble style vocal fits the torchy slow tunes she delivers.

Birdy herself, describes the album as Japanese-themed, but this album only gets there with the cover art. "It's an album about finding the light in the dark and becoming more confident with oneself," - Birdy

The albums best tracks are “Keeping Your Head Up” and “Wild Horses.” The rest is slow going and forgettable. It would be hard to imagine someone playing this disc over and over unless they are clinically depressed.

It seems as though Birdy has flown off the pop radar landscape and is veering towards a career as a dinner club/lounge act.

This album will disappoint most, but as she is still so young maybe she'll rebound with something better next time out.
