can any body tell me of a good way to download films to watch legally or any other way that is cheaper than blockbuster, 3.75 per film. I like my films and its starting to get a bit expensive

downloading nearly anything from a perr to peer network is illegal because most of the software is illegal in the firstplace and it was never legal to download films from a p2p network or illegal source.

These peer to peer sites are still there though, and i bet people are still doing it. can they arrest everbody doing it or what?

They charge to much, they rip people off, everyone does it, it harms no-one, they make a fortune.

Just a few of the words that will soon appear............

Then: Its illegal, your stealing, copywrite ownership, virus's, spyware,.

"I like my films and it's starting to get a bit expensive".

Well I like my wine and that is getting a bit expensive but I don't go and rob the off license to satisfy my appetite.

I am told that Local Libraries are cheaper than dedicated hire shops for films. You also get them for 7 days (or more) and not just 1 night. You could of course record them off the TV to Video, or get Sky Digital TV and pay a monthly sub for the movie channel and you can watch movies all day every day. Fortunately, I couldn't sit and watch TV for 2 hours or more, and I have a multi satellite dish (15 satellites) and 324 channels (all free). I don't have Sky, I don't have a card and I don't pay a monthly subscription.
