It can be very frustrating to download good quality movies online. You might find yourself wasting hours in the search of a good movie downloading website. Most of the times, we keep visiting the same spam sites that flood us with advertisements, spammy links and serve only garbage.
To address this problem, we are doing a round-up of the best websites to download movies, TV shows, software, games that actually work.
1. P2P Guru
A very popular name that always comes to mind is P2P Guru. This website is absolutely free of any ads or popups. The best feature of P2P Guru is that it not only enables us to download movies and TV series like other websites on this list but also lets us download music, games, ebooks, etc. It literally is one place for everything.
P2P Guru has a huge database of media. You can find almost all the popular movies and TV shows easily. The homepage of this website features highlights of every section like Movies, TV series, Music, Games, and Books. Most of the times you will find the popular titles right at the homepage and won’t need to go deeper in the database.
However, if the movie you are looking for isn’t available on the homepage then either browse through the categories or just enter the keyword in the search box and it will provide results related to that query. P2P Guru works with peer-to-peer download technique like torrent sites. For every file, there are at least 3 torrents. Foreign language movies with subtitles are also available.
Once you click on a movie, it will take you to the dedicated downloading page. There you can select the video quality (480p, 720p or 1080p), choose subtitle language and click on the movie download link. The quality index beside every file indicates the overall quality of that file based on the number of leechers and seeders. The interface of P2P Guru is also very clean and ad-free.
2. The Internet Archive
As the name reads, it actually it a big internet archive. You can find movies, TV shows, ebooks, music even the previous versions of a website. There are over 400+ Billion webpages stored in their directory. This is a big organization that keeps an archive of the internet.
You can even avail a virtual library card to gain insider access and become a part of the community. There isn’t a special category on the homepage for movies but you can use the search box to find the titles. There is a separate category for videos though to browse through all the videos archived at the Internet Archive.
Putlocker is another popular website for movies. There is a wide collection of movies in every genre and multiple languages. The homepage is very clean and simple. There is a big search box where you need to enter your movie and hit ‘enter’. Putlocker will retrieve related results from its servers. You can browse the movies using the categories on the header. Filter movies by Genre, country, TV-series, Top IMDb or A-Z list.
Popcornflix is a free website and app that allows you to stream an unlimited number of movies and TV shows. It has 3 basic categories – movies, TV shows and Viral videos to cater to your video needs. There are a lot of movie titles available on the homepage in different genres. All you need to do is click on the movie and click on the play button. That’s it, the movie will start playing.
Although, while browsing through this site I found that a lot of popular movies are not available on Popcornflix like Iron man or many other superhero movies.
1337x is a torrenting site. The site features a big collection of movies. You can either upload or download a movie. The site is free to access but you would need to create an account for uploading movies. The popular and most trending movies are listed at the homepage. There is a search bar at the top right that you can use to find the movies. Not only movies but 1337x lets you download torrents of anime, music, ebooks, applications, documentaries and more. You can browse the individual categories using the right sidebar.
6. Sony Crackle
Sony Crackle lets you download movies in several languages. Using the left sidebar, you can narrow down your search results. For instance, you can filter movies by genre, most popular, recently added, media type, etc. Although, you would need to create an account at Sony Crackle to download the movies. It will also recommend movies based on your interests just like Netflix.
The website is not available in many countries and regions but you can access it using a proxy or VPN.
Another popular name in the movie downloading community is Putlocker. The site features a wide range of movies and TV series. You can filter the movies based on genre, country or by IMDb ratings. The homepage of the website features movies, latest movies and latest TV series. Although, I was not able to find the movies based on the year of release. Also, even the lastest movies section on the homepage does not really reveal the year of release of the movies. You need to hover on each of the movies to get that info.
MyDownloadTube is another easy way to download movies for free. This site is more popular for Bollywood movies as they have a lot of hindi movies available in a varity of genres. The site lets you both stream and download the movies. Also, you don’t need to register or make an account to get access to the movies. Just click on the movie and the site will take you to the movie page where you can either stream the movie online or download it. The movie page contains details about the cast, storyline, etc.
9. The Pirate Bay
Another popular torrenting site. The Pirate Bay is a giant with a huge collection of movies and TV shows. Although, the website may be blocked in your region due to piracy concerns but you can always use The Pirate Bay proxy sites or mirror sites to unblock the website and download torrents of your favorite movies.
TorrentHound is a popular torrent website and is most targetted by the Governments for piracy. It is highly used to download movies, cartoons, anime, TV shows and much more. Although due to the regulations the site first asks you to download & install a free torrenthound.com client with an email address and join the community to get access to the downloadable media.
These are some of the best websites to download movies, TV shows and ebooks online. Some of these are torrenting sites so you would need a torrent client like Bittorrent (available for free) to download movies from these services.
