Flix By the Click - Simplified Streaming

flixclick.JPG

We can't all afford TiVos and sometimes searching around for non-mainstream videos can be a pain now that most of those mom and pop stores are gone. Flix by the Click offers unlimited streaming 24/7. They will even provide you with free software for streaming, DVD copying, a movie player and CD burner. You can play movies, TV shows and music videos to your PC, TV, or home theater. We noted that so far the site appears to be in the early stages and features Amazon VOD, but in a much more organized way. MP3 downloading is also on the way.
