Online streaming has changed the way people watch anime films. Before the revolution of online streaming, anyone that wanted to watch anime had to buy CDs. And since the CDs were only sold in selected stores, you had to do a lot of legwork just to get hold of your favorite films. The other problem is that these CDs didn’t offer the best quality due to scratches. And that’s not all. The CDs were also a threat to the environment as they were made from plastic materials. But even before they got disposed, the owner had to cope with the clutter.
You had also to make sure that your video player set was in good condition. Going to the movies was out of the question. This is due to the fact that most theatres focused more on showing Hollywood movies. All these shortcomings have been solved by video streaming revolution. Nowadays you can watch a film at the touch of an icon. As long as you have access to the internet, you are good to go. Let’s now look at why most people prefer to stream anime videos instead of buying CDs.
This one is a no-brainer. Online streaming allows you to enjoy your favorite shows without any limitations. You can actually watch the videos at any time and at anywhere. In fact, it doesn’t matter whether you own a computer. As long as you have a mobile device, you can stream the videos even when travelling. Research actually shows that the majority of anime fans stream the videos using mobile devices because they are highly portable. Once you have the device, you only need to visit an online platform directly or via an app to start streaming the movies. The other advantage is that online movies are of high quality than those that are sold in CDs. On the other hand, watching videos offline is not convenient. Since you can’t stream anime while on the go, you have to wait until you return home to watch your favorite series using a CD player.
2. Saves You Money
Before anime streaming became a reality, you had to budget for your favorite shows every month. This is because the CDs were rather expensive. Even the few theatres that showed anime films charged a lot of money as entrance fee. Going to see an anime film therefore meant that you had to have enough money for gas, popcorn and entrance fee. There were also some days that the theatres got full to capacity. In such a case, it was only the early birds that got the privilege of watching the latest releases on anime. With streaming, you don’t have to worry about money. This is because you can be watching anime shows from the comfort of your home without paying a dime. After subscribing on the platform, you will immediately start getting notifications once a new film has been released so you can watch it.
3. Saves You Time
Streaming of anime allows you to watch films instantly. In fact, you can watch many films in a day. But when you don’t have the option of streaming, you will have to download the movies before watching them. This can really take a lot of time considering that a 4GB movie can’t be downloaded in less than two hours. Under such circumstances, you would have to wait until weekend so that you can download the films when you don’t have other engagements. There is also the issue of not having enough disc space in your computer. For you to download many anime films, you have to buy a big external hard disk. Then there is also the risk of infecting your computer with viruses as you download the films from the internet.
