You no longer need to go to the theatre to watch a movie nor do you need to keep a check on the clock so that you don’t miss your favorite T.V. series. What you actually require is just a computer/laptop and internet connection. Now-a-days there are a number of movie and T.V. series streaming sites available where you can conveniently watch your favorites. Most of the sites give the option of free trials before purchasing the plan. It is always better to go for the free trial first for few weeks so that you can decide whether the plan suits you or not.
Many free sites are also available but not all of them are legal. There are many ad-supported sites such as Couchtuner which provide free streaming services. But it’s too annoying if ads keep on popping all the time.
