After searching the internet for months, trying out various movie and music download websites and being disappointed with the results I've come up with some advice. I do not want to see anyone else get scammed by false advertising websites claiming to have millions of movies, music and video game downloads. When it comes down to it, you do not really know what you are getting until you try. I have tried, made mistakes, but have also gained valuable knowledge about the valid websites out there. Below are some findings and tips to help guide you on your own search: Stick to organic search results. When you type in a search phrase such as "download movies online" into Google you will notice dozens of paid links to your right. While some may be reputable companies, many are just landing pages referring media websites to make a big commission. These websites often offer very little new movie content, but make their money off the unknowing public.
Watch out for extremely low prices: Websites off a $ 9.99 one time fee for unlimited movie, music and video game downloads is clearly not giving you quality downloads. Sure it's cheap, but you get what you pay for. Yes, they have thousands of movies, but who wants to watch no name movies from the 1980s?
Look for reputable websites. By that I mean media website that is not heavy on flash content, not just one large image and has a limited amount of banners. Be weary of pop ups from other websites that are trying to advertise cheap movie downloads. Often times it will lead you to an unrated website or a cheap vendor.
Do a search for "reviewed movie download websites." Many authors and users, such as myself, have created the websites to review the best companies to download media from. Like myself many people are tired of being scammed by all of the advertisements bombarding you each day. Read their reviews carefully and make and educated decision for yourself. People will go out of their way way to spread the word about a good website, just like they will about a poor website.
Find a website specific to what you are looking for. Rather than look for a website that claims to have it all, look for a category specific company such as movies, music or video games. At least look for a website that specializes in one of those categories. Such as offering an assortment of movies, but also giving you access to music and video games. You will greatly increase your chances of finding quality movies or vise versa.
Following the above tips will make you more aware as a consumer and lead you to the ideal website to download media.
