What can I do on Home Talkies?
You can make your HOME your personal TALKIES! On Home Talkies, you can watch High Quality movies Legally. The movies can be watched on various devices, many of our users connect their laptops to their Home Theatre systems and enjoy having a theatrical experience.

On the Watch movies link, we have a list of movies that are available for viewing. Simply choose the movie you’d like to watch, make the payment and the movie will start streaming immediately. You can watch the movie on your Ipad/Iphone/Itouch/Mac/Pc.
One of our users watched the movie on his HDTV. Go creative!
Can I watch the movies offline?
NO! Sorry about that. You can only stream the movie, you can’t download it. But don’t worry, if you have an internet connection with good speed, the movie will stream seamlessly. We haven’t had any complaints about that.

How do I benefit from watching a movie on Home Talkies?

How do I make money through Home Talkies?
For supporting legal ways of watching movies, we share our earnings with you. You can share a movie link on your social networking accounts, email friends or even embed our movie player on your blog. An unique affiliate code is attached with your sharing Ids (only when you submit your email ID in the player) and that code will keep a track of people who watch the movie through your share. So whenever someone rents the movie through your link, 10% of the selling price is sent to your account. You can go about sharing and promoting as many movies you want and earn the 10%. We are not kidding, this works. Try it out.
Frankly, why don’t I just watch pirated copies?
You would be stealing. Thousands of people work on making a movie, like you, they too need to make a living. When you watch pirated copies, all those people and their families are affected. When a producer doesn’t earn from his investments, he stops producing movies and when the number of productions fall, imagine how many people are rendered jobless! With no jobs in film making, people will move away. Quality dies and eventually you will not be left with any decent movie to watch.
And, as film makers we spend months to get everything right. There are loads of technical processes a film goes through to achieve high visual and audio quality. When you watch a pirated copy, all of that is lost. You are watching bad prints with cropped visuals and bad sounding audio. How will a film entertain you if you are not giving it a chance to reach you in its truest form?
Share legal copies and make money for yourself. When you promote pirated copies, no one is benefiting, neither the audience nor the makers. So be legal and be benefited.
