One of the most searched terms is “watch free movies online”. This indicates that many people are searhing for a way to watch their favorite movies while not having to pay for expensive monthly cable subscriptions.
Although it is understandable, given the ludicrously expensive cable and satellite fees, it can’t be justified in the light of the oblique costs that have it.
There are websites on the internet that offer the opportunity to watch movies online for free. The truth is that there is a huge cost that is included with using those sites.
For one, it is illegal. And those sites are violating regulations by publishing those movies on their sites. And if you pay close attention those copies are pirated. It is more clear in case of newly released movies. You will find that the copy they are displaying is taped by a camera in a movie theatre!
By using those sites you are supporting an illegal activity.
They don’t make money straight from you as a user, but they place ads from unethical ads networks who allow any kind of ads.
Some are also running scams on their sites.
For instance, one of the sites was allowing a few loads before a software on the site takes control of your screen and provides that you a message that your computer has been identified for illegal display and distribution of copyrighted material and that the authorities is on the way to arrest you and take the computer, which is now frozen on the act you used to be doing (the illegal one they mentioned earlier).
After you try to get out of the site or do anything just to find out that your computer is not response you start to believe them. The next message will ask you to pay the fine, usually hundreds of dollars, if you want to gain control back on your computer.
The software gives you the opportunity to pay online and of course some people respond and pay them. And when they mention it to their friends they discover they own been fooled.
Some of the sites that offer you to watch free movies online use a software to get your sensitive information, including any credit card you have come with that computer to pay your bills, and unless your creditors get your back on the deceitful transactions you will find yourself in deep troubles.
The other way those sites may get you in trouble is by really finding yourself facing legal charges.
The famous example that took the internet by storm lots of years ago was when a woman soap 2 day illegally saved 24 copyrighted songs. Her word was $4 millions in fees!
That kind of word could financially break any middle class family.
Do you think it’s worth it?
After you go through all of the above horrors and compare include those with a small fee of $3. 99/month you’ll understand why it is not worth it to attempt to watch free movies online.
