(NAPSI)—These days, we have “smart” everythings—smart cars, smartphones, smart televisions—but it seems most Americans still don’t feel quite as smart as their electronics when it comes to downloading digital movies. Most of us don’t think twice before downloading a song or even a full album; we’ll download apps until our thumbs are sore, and according to a 2013 study done by the PEW Research Center, nearly 60 percent of Americans think online dating is a great way to meet people—and yet, for some reason, most of us still don’t know how easy it is to purchase movies online. Well, it’s time to change that. Here are the top five reasons to go digital with your film library.

I caught a snippet of The Today Show this morning. I gave up watching that show years ago but it did pop up on my screen this morning briefly as I was starting my workout DVD. The hosts (who I didn’t recognize) were discussing something they referred to as “skinny shaming”. From what I gathered, it was in reference to a GAP ad in which a very gaunt model is depicted in a plaid dress. Apparently the Twitterverse responded adversely to the photo, making disparaging comments about the model’s physique. She is too skinny, apparently.
(NAPSI)—He’s a no-nonsense action star in the Expendables films and plays the hilarious Sgt. Terry Jeffords on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” but behind the scenes, what Terry Crews likes to do most is sing.

his true story takes viewers back to the life of an electrician and rodeo cowboy, Ron Woodroof, in 1985. Woodroof, thinking he’s got life by the horns, suddenly tests HIV-positive and is diagnosed with AIDS. This drama and my 2013 ‘Movie of the Year’, shakes audiences with its realistic portrayal of disbelief, shame and hatred towards those infected by AIDS. “The Dallas Buyers Club” illustrates a time when education and information about the AIDS disease, and the antivirals needed to fight it, was tenuous at best. Perhaps no one was less knowledgable or prepared for this global fight than Ron Woodroof--at least initially.
“Dallas Buyers Club” has been labeled one of the year’s best, and came out on DVD Feb. 4.
Just as the big cable networks have long known, the greatest difficulty in keeping viewers is keeping them interested. This is a struggle we as the viewing public have watched for years as countless shows, pilots, and new ideas are presented for a month or so and then sent down the drain. Every couple of months, you can read an article about the shows being cancelled in the upcoming year. To combat this constant turn-over of programming, it is necessary to find new, original programs that are able to both retain current viewers as well as draw more in.
