We have a lot of options for entertainment in 2011. We can go to movies, we can play online games, we can go to sporting events and we can go out of town. A lot of these can be costly though, and the novelty can wear off just after a few days. One of the best forms of entertainment available, and the one that gives the most bang for your buck, is to own a hometheatre.
A home theatre can mean a lot of different things with a lot of different components, but the general theme stays the same from home theatre to home theatre: A big-screen TV with high definition display, a surround sound audio system, a BluRay player and possibly a home theatre PC (HTPC – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_theater_PC) for streaming media.
And, of course, cinema-style seating or at least a comfortable couch to enjoy the view from. The end result is always a luxurious form of entertainment.
And why own a home theatre? For one, it’s more cost effective. Beyond the up-front cost of purchasing the equipment for a home theatre, they are virtually free to use. You can use it every night and the only cost is a Netflix subscription or movie rentals. In comparison, going to a sports game just once costs a family of four upwards of $200 in most cases. After going to just five games, you’ve paid more money than you would have for a nice home theatre system.
Having a home theatre is also just a great all-around entertainment system. Home cinemas aren’t just limited to watching movies and TV. Gaming consoles can also be connected to a home theater for what amounts to the most life-like gaming experience possible. With a home theatre PC connected, you can stream your music over the surround sound aspect. Possibly the coolest part of all is that most new televisions are “smart” televisions, ones that can connect to the internet for web browsing.
These sets can connect to streaming services like Pandora and Netflix for instant entertainment. They’re also capable of running apps, like you might on a smartphone. It’s a very thorough experience, and you can do nearly anything you want with a home theatre.
Staying in for entertainment doesn’t mean being isolated, either. Owning one of these setups makes your home a great social spot. Your friend home will become the place where everyone wants to go when you and your friends get together. If you have kids, their friends will want to come over as well. Your home can go from a simple dwelling to a legitimate entertainment destination. You and your friends will never have to worry about having nothing to do.
Home cinemas are available anywhere. Whether you need a home theatre in Melbourne, New York or Dhaka, they’re available for sale worldwide. You can install one in a house or apartment without concerns about space, because they’re available in all sorts of combination. With this much flexibility and endless entertainment, why not own one?
