The Best Media and Entertainment Sites

In this report

Three different sites all linked by one common denominator,entertainment.Two are designed to view great films and the third is so you can follow the stars of those films and other celebrities from the world of entertainment and sport.

The main problem, or perhaps it will not be a problem as the sites are so different,is to decide what you are looking for.Is it family entertainment that spans the generations or movies and television programs you can watch anytime,anywhere.

If you are a devoted fan of one particular celebrity,or perhaps several celebrities,then the free Fantapper site is obviously the one to choose.On this site you can legally follow your hero learning the latest news,hearing the latest recordings if they are in the music industry,without having to rushg out and buy expensive celebrity magazines.

#1 - Discovery Channel

Discovery Channel is a satellite television channel that is packed with programs the whole family can watch together.It is rare these days to find programs that span the generations and interest everyone in the household from teenagers to their grandparents.

On Discovery Channel you can find adventure,cars and bikes,gear and gadgets,life and news.You can interact with the channel by taking part in some of their show games,do their puzzles,quizzes and more.Without realising it youngsters are being educated while being entertained.

Family-friendly programs shown on the Discovery Channel include

Find out what it is like to stand in the mud,rain and harsh weather of Alaska by watching Todd Hoffman and his Gold Rush team every week.There is also the opportunity to be featured on the Discovery Channel yourself if you do something crazy.Undersea miner Ian Foster did just that,he took a beat-up skiff,added used parts to it so it looked like a pile of floating junk and headed out into the Bering Sea to go diving for gold.His story is told in Discovery Channel's new series Bering Sea Gold.

Discovery Channel also has an online store which sells

The online store is ideal for those who do not have satellite or cable television, or just want to watch one of their favourite programs again and again.

After that,if they decide to join,they can enjoy unlimited films and television episodes online for £5.99 per month.The benefits of subscribing to Netflix are

There are two rather grey areas regarding subscribing to Netflix,there is no mention anywhere on their website about parental guidance and anyone can sign up for a free trial using facebook.They say Netflix works with any speed of broadband but they go on to recommend a minimum speed of 500 kpps (0.5MB) to get the best out of the service.

There are several options to choose from regarding the way you watch the films and TV via Netflix.You can watch online on your computer,watch online on your television,connect your laptop directly to your TV,watch online on your TV,connect your game consoles on your Netfix account or watch online on your phone or tablet.

#3 - Fantapper

Fantapper is the number one source for personalized information from your favorite celebrities or sporting heroes.You can get the latest news about them before anyone else and the latest sports news as it happens. 

Fantapper is an easy-to-use free "smart app" which means it is customized for the celebrity you are looking at and once you have downloaded the site and chosen a celebrity to follow you do not need to do anything else. Fantapper adds interactive apps to celebrity images and text to give instant access to news,videos, social media,storefronts and more.

There is no limit to the number of celebrities you can follow and you can keep up to date with what is happening in the world of film premieres, red carpets and top sporting occasions.

The plus side of Fantapper is that it is absolutely free so there is no price comparison to the other two companies.The downside is celebrities have to agree to subscribe to the site and although it currently tracks over 45,000 celebrities the one that you want to follow may not have actually agreed to participate yet.

The Bottom Line
