Using FastCinema

Want an easy-to-use, safe, and totally legal way watch full-screen, DVD-quality movies on your desktop computer, laptop, or TV? Then try FastCinema!

With FastCinema, you can watch any movie in our library of over 100 movies without the hassles of late fees, inconvenient start times, and waiting for DVDs in the mail.

To start enjoying your movies, just follow these five easy steps:

  1. Select a movie from FastCinema´s huge library of 100 films.

    If you know the title of the film you want, or want to watch a film with a favorite actor or director, just enter the information into the Search field to the right , just below the login box, and select your movies from the results. Or you can just browse through our movie categories, much like you would at your local video store.

    When you click on a movie´s title or artwork, you´ll be taken to a details page, where you can learn more about the film and can choose to begin downloading or watching it.

  2. When prompted, enter your PayPal or credit card information, and you´ll be ready to download your movies. (For information on our privacy policy, please click here.) You can also register to the website to add comments and rate movies. Once you´ve registered once, you only need to log in the next time you visit FastCinema.
  3. Check -out Once you´ve selected your movies, you can then choose how you want to watch your movie. Choose from the following options:
    • Pay-Per-View: With this option, you can watch a movie as many times as you like within a fixed time period (usually 24-48 hours), starting when you first play the film after downloading it.
    • Buy: This option lets you download a movie that will be yours to keep. Once it´s downloaded, the movie can be played as many times as you like, on any device you want.
    • Premium: Premium films are available to FastCinema members in either of two ways: as a standard Pay-Per-View option, or as part of our VIP Pass program, which gives you unlimited access to our movies. Additionally, you may choose to watch movies as part of a free 7-day trial period.
  4. Stream or Download your movie Once you´ve made your movie selections, you can choose to either stream or download your movies.

    Streamed files can be downloaded at varying bit rates and can begin playing almost immediately. These files take up no space on your computer´s hard drive. With streamed movies, the quality of the picture depends on the type of internet connection you have.

    Downloadable files are downloaded at a bit rate of 700k and take up around 550MB of hard drive space. You can only play the movie once the download is complete. Once the file is downloaded, however, the movie picture quality is excellent, and will not be interrupted by a poor internet connection.

  5. Watch your movie

    All that´s left is to enjoy your movie! If you´ve chosen to stream your movie, it can start playing immediately. If you´ve elected to download your movie, our special, easy-to-use software will walk you through the download and movie playback process.
