Today there are numerous places that you can download movies from. You may actually find yourself confused, wondering which one is the best one. Well, here is a look at each one so that you can decide for yourself which is the best:
iTunes has been very popular ever since it first began, making over 1 million dollars the first week it was open. While this download site has some bugs, the site is still going strong and is expected to successfully bring on additional studios sometime soon. For now though, all you can get is Disney.
Guba is a branch off of a Usenet product. This happened when they made a deal to sell Warner Brothers movies, which was soon followed by a deal to sell Sony movies. Since then, Guba has competed on price and consistently been the lowest priced download site. Along with the premium movies that you can buy or rent, there are also free user-generated and Usenet videos available. Cinema Now recently released a movie online at the same time that the DVD was released, which is the first time that this has ever been done. Another great thing about Cinema Now is that they have a Burn-To-DVD feature. This will allow you to burn select titles to a DVD that can be played in almost any DVD player. You will have to have a Windows PC and Internet Explorer to use this web site though.
Movie Link actually has the largest catalog of new releases and library titles. While they are not as low priced as other web sites are, they do have discounts for people who are in the military or in college. They also have mystery rentals. You may want to give this web site a try because of how many titles they actually do have. Amazon Unbox has received a lot of bad feedback because of their license agreements being so unfriendly to its users. However, when compared with all of the other movie download sites, Unbox actually has the best meta-data about its movies and television shows. You will be able to read about the item's plot, release and consumer ratings. You will also be able to see some of the item's productions stills before you decide whether or not to download it.
Unfortunately, if you are using a Mac, you can only use iTunes. However, Windows users would do well to either go with Movie Link's deep catalog or Guba's great pricing.
