Due to it being very convenient with a click and tap of a finger, a lot of people opt to just download the movies they want thru these online services or stream it at their own pace.

Because of all social statuses being able to gain access to these sites almost always, this would mean more money and profit to their investment. Movie streaming is starting to become a necessity for everyone, leaving theatres or movie houses the last option due to inconvenience and hassle.
