Netflix subscriptions are so 2007 -- this year, it's all about the video streaming.
Amazon and iTunes both offer services that let you download (to rent or to buy) and watch your favorite television shows and movies (no DVD mailing required).
Download one episode at a time or buy a season pass for the shows you just can't miss, and watch full-length films online instead of buying hard copies.
And if you're still carrying that Netflix subscription from last year, enhance it by signing up for instant play: You'll get immediate access to some of the movies in your queue and save on the paper and postage. (Amazon and iTunes gift cards, prices vary)
