Astra Group Movie Streaming
Popping down to the local blockbuster is really now a thing of the past, we used to head down there to rent the latest film, come back with a VHS tape or DVD and then drop it back the next day. After that came postal movie rentals, choose your film, it would be in the post in the next couple of days and then you'd pop by a postbox to send it back once you've watched it.
Now, you have the option of simply downloading a movie online, or streaming it straight to your television or PC - it automatically disappears when your rental period is over - so there's very little wait and no need to find time to send it back.
That's all well and good, but what happens if your internet isn't good enough to download or stream these movies? You're still left with the postal option or trying to find a local rental shop - which is actually pretty hard these days - especially if you live in a rural area.
As the majority of these services recommend a minimum broadband speed of 2 Mbps for standard movie download or streaming and up to 12 Mbps if you're looking to watch a HD movie!
So what happens if you want to use these services but have been told you can't get fast broadband internet where you are? Well the simple answer is you can't! Unless you choose satellite broadband...
Satellite broadband is available EVERYWHERE - yes EVERYWHERE, even where you have been told you can't get fast broadband internet and with speeds of up to 20 Mb download and tariffs offerings unlimited data packages - film streaming services like LOVEFiLM, Netflix and Blinkbox are available to anyone.
