Last week we asked how you watch TV shows and movies most often. The results definitely show that times have changed, but also reflect how problematic geo-restrictions are when it comes to this kind of content.
Out of 545 votes in total, less than 2% said they rent/buy single episodes or movies from an online venue, 6% rent/buy physical media, 25% watch on TV or go to the cinema, another 25% (the exact same number of votes!) have a subscription on Netflix/Hulu or a similar service, and 42% of the voters said they most often download their TV shows and movies.
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.
By reading the comments, it’s obvious that many of the downloaders do so for lack of any other viable option. Hopefully, solutions like Netflix or Hulu will soon be available worldwide and to all users. Don’t forget to read the poll’s best comment by Hiew Yau, who won 150 reward points for the insight!
This week’s poll question is: What’s The Best Way To Share Photos?
Sharing photos is one of the most common things we do online. If once upon a time we could show our memories only to those we actually met in person, today it’s super easy to share every little snapshot we take with the world. It’s so easy, in fact, that it’s sometimes hard to choose how to do it exactly. Is uploading an album to Facebook the best way? Or maybe sharing a Dropbox album with friends and family? Perhaps email is the simplest way to share? To each his own preference, and today you get the chance to tell us what it is.
As usual, it doesn’t matter if you use several of these, just vote for your favorite/most used option. Don’t forget to tell us in the comments what makes your choice the best, or if you voted for “other”, what your favorite sharing platform is.
