Why go Legal?

If you do a search online for free movies, you will get a ton of results that offer fast downloading of the latest new film releases, or films that are not even in your local cinema yet. The internet is populated with web sites that make illegal, copyrighted movies available to you. While you might think ‘what’s the harm’, you might not know that it is illegal to download, watch and share films in this way. You will risk getting caught and fined and for what? There are a number of sites that let you legally enjoy feature-length movies and the latest TV episodes anytime you want either for free or for a small one off or monthly charge.
