Hop/iTunes Review

I use iTunes all the time. I mean, all the time. I am addicted to downloading music but strangely enough I've never actually downloaded a movie. I'm not sure why, it's just never occurred to me.  Anyhow, I was recently asked if I'd like to try downloading a movie, "Hop", from iTunes. Of course I said yes and wasn't swayed by the bottle of wine and box of chocolates they sent me at all. Nor the Hop goody bags...

When you buy a movie on iTunes, it works just the same way as a normal music purchase, it's that simple. You can then watch it on your laptop or iPad - wherever you want really. I chose to watch it on my widescreen TV because I have a rather snazzy DVD player with a USB port that means I can pop a memory stick in the front. Clever, huh? That makes downloading all the more better for me as I can still watch it on the big screen.

Hop is a film about E.B, the teenage son of the Easter Bunny. Just before he has to take over the family business, E.B leaves for Hollywood to become a drummer. It's a mixture of live action and animation. My kids both loved the Hop film, we downloaded it on a rainy afternoon when there was nothing better to do. (I can already see that being able to download films quickly and easy is going to be a sanity-saver in school holidays!). It's a cute and funny film that is perfect for the whole family.

If you haven't seen Hop you can find out about it on the films own website  You can watch it in many formats, it's available on DVD, Blu-ray, iTunes download and new titles are now available in all formats from the day of release.

I was pretty amazed at the ease of downloading a movie, even with my rubbish broadband connection, and because it's so instant I'm sure it's something I will do again, especially when we're at  a loose end. I don't live anywhere near a DVD rental place or a shop that sells DVDs so this is perfect for us as we don't need to leave the house!
