The Best Sites for Downloading Movies


Technology has made it unnecessary for movie lovers to venture out to the rental store each time they wish to see a DVD. The Internet's speed makes it possible to download full-length movies, even in high definition, in just a short time and watch them on a computer or other device without leaving home. While there are some movie piracy sites on the Internet, there are perfectly legal and reliable options for downloading and watching films.

Movie Downloads Pro

  • is a website that offers easy access to seemingly endless free and licensed video content. This content is legal to view, download and burn to DVD. The Movie Download Pro software works on any computer with an Internet connection and Windows Vista or XP. The content on the website is available through third-party links organized in a database that is updated daily. A fee is required for use of the software and the available content ranges from feature-length films to music videos and current and classic television shows.


  • iTunes is a computer program created by Apple that comes standard on many Macintosh and PC computers. iTunes allows the user to access the iTunes Store, which is a web-based interface where movies can be purchased or rented for rates comparable to brick-and-mortar video stores. The selection includes television programs, music and other video content. All content downloaded from iTunes is completely legal. Movies bought by users can be watched on the computer screen and viewed on other compatible devices such as an iPod, iPad or iPhone. Rentals are also available for 24 hours, after which the program automatically deletes the rental title from the play list.


  • Netflix is an alternative to video stores started in 1997 that first allowed subscribers to obtain rental movies by mail for a flat rate each month while eliminating the possibility of late charges. As the technology developed, Netflix became an online entity as well, allowing subscribers to arrange the order in which they would receive mailed DVDs and Blue Ray discs. In addition, the company website eventually enabled subscribers to instantly download movies and stream them to their television sets through approved devices such as the Xbox video game console or the Nintendo Wii.

    Netflix now allows unlimited instant movie downloads and a sizeable download library with membership for rates that make active movie watchers pay very little per movie.
