How do I watch a movie online with someone far away? We both have internet connections and would like to have a movie night but we live far apart at the moment. It would be nice to chat and watch the same movie together.

Do you have xboxes by any chance?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Hey, Thanks guys, are there any other methods besides youtube and consoles? I don't have an xbox360 but she does. We would use the same connection to talk to each other as well because it costs too much for her to call me. We'd like to pretend it was a regular night sitting on the couch talking to each other while watching a movie. I will accept both answers, just looking for alternatives. Cheers
I would look into xbox, it has a party netflix mode for watching together as well as Video chat!

If you have good internet connections, you can use skype to share your computer screen with her (So, start a movie on your computer , say using netflix. Then, open skype, use share screen feature in skype). There might be slight lag(couple of seconds) between what you see on screen and what she sees but that should be bearable. Otherwise, you can try out the suggestions given earlier.

While you are on skype, you can also keep chatting as the movie is playing .

I also found an online service specigically for this purpose.SeeToo is an online service that allows users to invite someone and watch video together in real time.
