Do you guys really sit somewhere and watch movies on your Zune?
« on: June 13, 2007, 07:11:30 AM »

I own a big TV for watching movies and can't figure out why anybody would watch movies on such a small screen. Do you guys really watch a lot of movies on your Zune or have you done it just once or twice and realized how mundane it is. Just where do you do it? Do you sit on a bus every day or walk down the street? I don't get it? Do you need to watch the same movie over and over like a six year old does? Are you just trying to impress your friends with the fact that you have movies with you?  Are you the people who watch video on your cell phones? Are you just bored with life? Are you in your room waiting for mom to make dinner? Sorry for this long rant but I just don't get it!

now we do the tv output and connect it to our 1080i lcd thats how we do it. Not to bad my tv has a feature that tries to upscale everthing and it works but zune gives enough quality so its all good in the hood. and why are you here complaning about that i believe that is our matters if we do watch videos on our zunes because some people can handle other stuff some can't and if you own an ipod it is just the smae about you if not even worse (small screen). I am sorry for my rant about your statement.  Roll Eyes

1. Airplanes - Ive watched several movies on my Zune player during long airplane trips. It's great.

2. Long car rides - I pass the Zune to my daughter in the back seat and she'll watch movies or TV shows on the Zune.

Where you've got time to kill to watch a movie, and no big screen TV in the area, the Zune is a really good way to go.

One of my Zune's is my "Soccer Devil" zune. It has tons of soccer movies (e.g. Goal), game highlights (EPL, La Liga, World Cup, CL), game videos (kids teams, EPL, CL, World Cup), adverts (Nike, adidas, Puma), Skills videos,  training and coaching videos.

- When driving long distances for soccer games the backseat players are happy.
- Game videos are a beautiful training tool to highlight individual game situations to specific players ...
- Coaching/Training videos are a perfect training tool.
- Highlights are beautiful conversation pieces. My latest additions are highlights of the Euro U21 championships from UEFA.com (watch Leroy Lita miss the penalty for England from the June 11, 2007 game).

I sometimes watch movies or tv-shows on my zune when I'm in bed. Even though I have a laptop, but her (my laptop is called Sophia) battery gets hot after a while and when it's hot outside that's not a nice feeling. And sometimes when I have a free period at school I watch stuff on my zune as well.
