It might sound too good to be true, but you actually can download full length movies for free from the Internet. But you have to be a little persistent and determined to find them. After all, you will want good quality prints, good technical support and a good database to choose from.
Of course, the statement that you can download full length movies for free prompts an obvious question. Why do so many people still pay good money for DVDs, if they can get movies for free online? After all, DVD shops still do brisk business.
This is because you have to search to find these sites, and not everyone knows about the alternative. There are two options, and you can choose according to your requirement. The first is P2P file sharing networks, where you can download and share whole movies. The second option is completely legal, though rather more difficult to find. There are websites that let you download full length movies for free and legally. The catch is that the choice is very limited. If the movie you are looking for is not a classic, you will not find it in these sites.
People prefer the P2P file sharing networks because this is the only option for watching new movies and the latest blockbusters completely free of charge. The trouble is that the quality will very often be quite poor, and there is the added chance of getting incomplete movies and infected files. Also, the legal status of these networks is disputed. You could choose the second option, but not if you want any new movies.
These are the only truly free options. There might be a lot of other sites that claim to provide whole movies for free, but they never do. Take a look at the terms and conditions. Some of them will mention payment; some others will wait till you have downloaded your movie before asking for payment in order for you to proceed.
The catch is that though the actual movies might be free, you will need to download some software that you can only get from these sites to be able to download these movies. And, of course, you will have to pay for this. The other possibility is that you might have to pay a certain sum as monthly subscription fee, after which you can download movies. And sometimes you are asked to pay additionally, if you want to transfer your movies to a disk.
But you might have to make some sort of a compromise even if you want to download full length movies for free. Some of these paid sites will charge only a one time fee, and will give you access to good quality prints of a huge collection of movies. This fee is never too high, and when you consider the alternative - buying DVDs - you will see that this is worth it. So, you can download full length movies for free - well, almost.
