Is sifting through long playlists the only thing you hate more than channel surfing? Wish you could just ask somebody else what to watch? Vdio takes viewing social, allowing you to connect your account to Twitter or Facebook for recommendations from friends.
The cost: No membership fee; à la carte pricing only. Rent movies for $4 to $5; buy them for $15 to $20. Rent TV episodes for $3 to $4.
Worth noting: Vdio doesn’t limit you to following your Facebook buddies. You can follow the Vdio accounts of entertainment websites, like Pitchfork and The A.V. Club. Or you can turn to strangers for assistance: Find someone who shares your favorite movie and see what else she’s watched recently.
The downside: If you don’t apply privacy features, anybody on the Internet can see your entire viewing history.
