Legal Movies

Hi Guys. I've just got a DVD recorder and I'm eager to download movies, legally, from a website and then burn them onto a disc. Does anyone know any good sites? Thanks, Dave.

Unless I am mistaken there are no 'legal' download sites and many rip-off sites.

What sort of movies are you after? Current "blockbusters" are a no go at the moment, but there are numerous independent films out there waiting to be downloaded.

I know that there are now legal sites for music and I was hoping it was the same for movies. Damn!

The website is down at the moment but here's a paragraph from my mag:

"British music downloading service Wippit will be offering movies to it's users from this summer. The company is in talks with three film distribution companies who will put movies online with prices starting from 99p per download. The company already offers music tracks from 29p per download. This is significantly lower than the 69p offered by most major download services although more popular tracks cost more. Films to be made available include blockbusters, classics, independent films and hard to find movies, according to wippit. The service is designed to compete with file-sharing services such as Kazaa, through which films are available free, but downloaded unlawfully. In the US, services such as real Movies already allow users to download films, but wippit movies will be the first major download service offered to British customers."

Thanks for your help Tubster that sounds just what I'm after.

legally download movies cannot be burnt to DVD because the copy-protection, it will probabaly only be able to played in one computer

Agree with TomJerry, it's highly unlikely you can burn these movies to disk.
