Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Why, illegally downloaded from whichever torrent site has what I'm looking for, of course!

In order from most frequent:
1. Streaming
2. DVD/Blu-Ray rental
3. Personal disc library
4. TV
5. Theater

As a side note, if I see something coming on TV that I find appealing, I will pop in the disc if available, or start the stream if available. As a fallback, I continue to watch on TV, or put it in my disc rental queue.

wait until Blu-Ray or DVD is released, then wait some more until the price drops significantly then if I still want to see the movie I buy it

I watch a combination of the above with the exception of theaters. Haven't set foot in one for many years. Seldom watch anything made after the sixties.

I'm kind of terrified to find out how the lack of shows needing to be scheduled or the ability to "miss" a show may impact the next generation. I do love my online streaming subscriptions.

I gave up on theaters (before they became unreasonably priced) when others in the theater decided it was appropriate to talk back to the actors - and to each other. Part of the allure of a theater was to be transported to another place/suspension of reality. So much for that!

Thanx for letting me rant
