If you have the desire to stream a movie to your computer, you have plenty of options. Netflix and Hulu come to mind, along with half a dozen others. Of course there is a new kid on the block hoping to deliver video to your computer. Strangely enough, that kid is Facebook.
I’m really not sure why on earth Facebook needs to stream movies. After all, the videos and music on people’s pages is what drove me away from Mypace. Either way, the company has decided that people need to spend all of their available time on the site, and are offering movies for rent. The first such movie is The Dark Knight, which is certainly a good way to kick things off. You’ll need to purchase Facebook credits if you wish to watch the film. Personally, I think I’ll pass.
