Smart Ways To Get Free Movie Content Online

Jul 9, 2008
A trip to the cinema is starting to become a hassle for two reasons. First, it costs a lot of money to pay one's way in, not to mention the prices for refreshments are outrageous. Next, actually having the time to get to the cinema at specific times can pose a problem. Both situations can be solved with watching free movies online via several routes.

For those who aren't knowledgeable about the status of the Internet and copyrighted movies, many copyrighted movies can be legally watched online for free. These movies will commonly be made free to the general public, or their rights will be bought from webmasters who then turn around and offer the content free on their websites to bring in more traffic from around the world.

As in the case with the popular American show "South Park," some websites will put advertisements up and let Internet users watch TV shows and movies absolutely free and without much interruption. The advertisements will be in the movie or show itself, so it can't be avoided- but saving money on rental and ticket fees is more than worth the small inconvenience.

Copyright laws aren't perfect in every country. In some cases, technicalities will be apparent that enable webmasters to put Hollywood movies online and offer them for free, without the fear of receiving a subpoena. It can sometimes still be illegal to watch such movies if the Internet user hails from a country with different copyright laws. It's best to not watch movies from such sites if one isn't aware of their country's copyright laws.

Free movies also come from the recent craze in Internet pop culture: completing surveys and offers for free movie tickets and subscriptions to online rental services. This will often require the consumer to complete several different offers, in which the consumer receives a commission of profit. The commission eventually builds up to get the consumer a prize of their choice- in many cases the prize will come in the form of straight cash or even subscriptions to services such as Netflix.

As a last note, free movies can always be obtained among independent film networks. Independent films are a niche type of movie that are provided to the general public for free. While these may not star Hollywood's best actors, they do still serve as a free source of entertainment for those who enjoy movies. There are several independent film companies, as well as festivals to investigate. Best of all, many independent films don't even have annoying ads in between content.

In Conclusion

Watching free movies and TV shows online isn't such a hard task once one knows where to get them. As we can see from the previous examples, it's just a matter of knowing where to look and what to do. Just keep in mind that copyright laws can be very strict, and before engaging in anything that may seem illegal, consult a legal professional or review copyright laws in one's own country before continuing.
