The concept of downloading movies is not a new one. Fact is, the technology to stream or download movies has only become viable in the last year or so with many households adopting broadband or cable connection.
As a result, many movie download sites are popping out all over the internet. Here are some of the top movie download sites currently available that are legitimate.
Movielink is a joint project of MGM studios, Sony Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros and Universal Studios. That’s a lot of heavyweight companies supporting this site.
Currently, the movies are on a pay per view rental basis. That’s means you pay anywhere from 99 cents to $4.99 to watch each movie. It can last for 30 days and it has a pretty wide selection of current hollywood movies. Currently, it is only available in the US.
CinemaNow is another top movie download site. They have a huge selection of movies around 1,200 but most of it aren’t new hollywood movies. You can either rent or buy a movie. If you choose to rent, it’s available for 24 hours and if you buy, it’s available indefinitely in your cinemanow’s digital library. You can even download and burn to dvd for some movies.
I recommend the subscription plan which is $29.95 per month if you watch a lot of movies since it is more worth while.
Vongo is a relatively new movie download site. They offer a subscription plan of $9.99 per month where you can download and watch unlimited movies. There are premium pay per view movies which cost an additional charge and available for 24 hours upon payment. It’s currently only available in the US.
There are also many other top movie download sites available but you need to be careful as not all are legitimate and it is illegal to download pirated or bootleg movies.
Regardless of which top movie download site you choose, you need to have a fast broadband connection to be able to watch the movies smoothly. A large capacity hard disk is recommended if you plan to download the movies.
