For the last x number of years I have been considering a subscription to a TV and film service. I have never actually done anything about it. I guess it's the fact that it always seems expensive to have to pay to watch stuff on my own TV at home. As a family we probably spend a fair amount of our disposable income (hate that phrase) on films. Only last week I rented a movie from the library. We buy box sets and individual films quite regularly.
Another part of me is just old fashioned. I grew up as a child with 3 TV channels and very little choice. You had to watch what was on either BBC1, BBC2 or ITV. The stations closed down at midnight and there was no breakfast TV either. It is hard for my kids to understand how little choice there was. But despite that, I enjoyed TV immensely and it didn't bother me not having a choice - I watched and enjoyed the films that were scheduled. True though, I did have to wait for the films to be televised and that could be a very long time. VHS changed all that. I remember video rentals shops booming and going along on a Saturday to rent a horror.
Well, I've decided to move into the new era and subscribe to an online downloadable film service. I've chosen to go with Love Film, due to the scale of their choice and the features they offer. It's finally the time...really, I don't know what took me so long!
