No, this is not a post that is going to link you to sites that are streaming illegal videos of the latest movies. This is about a new program I found that allows you to watch movies (some new release) and tv shows (new releases too), for free.
This wonderful program is called HitBliss.
HitBliss is a win-win-win program that makes everybody happy.
How does Hit Bliss work?
There is a decent library of movies and TV shows that you can pay to rent and stream online. Each movie or show has a different price, but you can earn money through the program that will create a balance which pays the movie fees for you.
You earn money by interacting with advertisers through the HitBliss interface. There is an “Earn” section of the program where you can watch advertisements, complete surveys and play games to build up your balance.
It doesn’t even take that long to build up enough money to watch a movie. I believe the first time I used the program, I was able to get $5 in my account in about 15 or 20 minutes. And that just required sitting through a few commercials that were, for the most part, entertaining on their own.
You can even customize the commercials that you see. You can pick different categories so your ads can be focused on things like electronics or movies. You can even block advertisers that you don’t care about seeing again.
For a somewhat new program, they have a large library to choose from. There are plenty of new releases, although not everything. Some of the movies just came out on DVD about a week or 2 ago, so it doesn’t look like they are calling old movies “new releases”. There is even a section for movies that are coming soon that you can add to your favorites list and check out when they become available.
There is also a great collection of classics in the system. So far I added The Godfather, Beetlejuice and The Wizard of Oz to my list of movies to watch. (How is that for variety?)
The TV shows look like they are mainly shows that have been on the air in the last 5-10 years. Some newer shows are even available the day after they air on TV.
As of the time of this writing, there aren’t a lot of places that you can stream HitBliss. You need to download the program, so it works on computers and some HDTVs. Earning can only be done on your computer at the moment, but I’m sure they will have to make a move to iPhones and tablets soon.
I believe the program is still in beta mode. You have to get an invite after signing up, which didn’t take me that long at all.
Click here to sign up for their program. You can do this quickly through your Facebook account. For me, it took about a day before they replied with an invite to get into the program.
I really hope this program works out and these guys get to stick around for a while. This program allows you to watch free movies, while still making money for HitBliss, which can pay the movie companies, which means they can afford to keep making good movies and gives advertises a venue to show their ads to an audience that is interacting with the ads. This is the most full circle business model I have seen for the TV and film industry yet.
