Any good online movie sites?

Postby binky11 » Nov 21st, 2012, 11:57 am

I am looking for a good site to watch online movies. I am now using a site called "graboid" which was not too bad, but I have exausted their library lol I do not mind paying for a good site, but there is so many out there, how does one know if they are legit and have a good selection and are available in Canada? I was seriously thinking about one called movie25.com as they have a fantastic collection of movies, however, there is no contact number or email addy and I need questions answered before I will sign up. I know there are quite a few free on youtube, but like I say, I would rather pay for a good site and have unlimited access. Some sites you cannot view their movies until you sign up and pay, well I don't want to pay for something I don't know what I am getting. I don't hear good things about netflix. Anybody have any idea's??? I prefer the streaming option to downloading, but if I have to d/l, I guess thats ok.

Well if netflix.ca had the selection that netflix.com had, I might consider it. Also, I like to be able to browse ALL their movies to see what kind of selection they have before I pay, you can go to browse movies, but for example I went under drama and it shows you only one page of movies, like 12 of them. I don't see anywhere that you can browse all their movies. I have watched soooooooo many from graboid, I want to be sure they have some different movies. It does say you get one month free trial, but can you cancel after the free month if you are not happy with their selection, I heard that they automatically will bill you after that free month. Would you mind telling me what netflix.ca costs for unlimited per month?

Project Free TV has quite a few movies available to stream - for free as the name implies.

I just got onto Netflix and I'm pretty impressed. I'm still on my free month but intend to stay subscribed. From what I understood they will begin the billing automatically, but I'm not sure how narrow that cancellation window would be to not risk your 8 bucks. I'd say it's worth the risk to check it out :p

The layout and usability of Netflix is very good. Every movie and even tv episode has a description, and it remembers what you've watched and where you are in each movie/episode. As far as selection the Canada version is more than enough to make it worth the money, I was thinking it will take a year or two to get through the content I was interested in. TV Series are my favourite and there are plenty. If that's not enough it's fairly simple to get access to the US netflix, which bumps up your selection from 2,000 to 14,000 titles. I signed up for a free trial (no credit card required) of a dns forwarding service and it works fine, been watching US netflix for a week now. I think it's 4 bucks a month if I subscribe, which I probably will.

You can stream to two devices at once.

I have seen some good things on Channel 131. They have movies and tv shows.

Yup, doesn't even have to be from the same household - my mom uses our Netflix account from Vancouver.

I watched that video on how to get usa netflix movies, I think it may be over my head LOL I just wish I could view their movies before I have to make a commitment. Graboid, which I am using now, has a huge selection, but being a homebody on disability, I try to stay active during the day but I watch on average 2 movies a night, that adds up. I love the streaming idea though, I have to d/l from graboid, and I pay $19.99 a month, but have watched over 200 movies, so have got my money's worth LOL The price is right, I just need to know their selection or else know I can cancel after the first month if they are not willing to show me what they have. Maybe I will give it a try.

that movie25.com site has contact info, after you select the movie you want to watch...

to download a movie the pages goes to this https://en.usenet.nl/registration/

with prices of € 8.33 to €11.99 per month ( i assume that is euro dollars?)

and to watch the stream goes to https://www.itshd.com/signup?sf=blue_newjs&ref=6858

with a toll free number 877-801-9065


how current are the movies at the graboid....out of curiosity?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything. I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete douchebags.

I use graboid as well. I pay the 4.99 monthly fee. I use it to get a lot of TV shows that are only on subscription channels with shaw. (SOA, Justified etc...)
Lots of movies are brand new (some in theatre) but are really bad quality. Better off waiting a few weeks.

I use nextflix, but the US version. Way better than Canada.

Hey how come you pay $4.99 a month and I pay $19.99? Hmmmmm.

Logitack, thanks for that info :) The movies at graboid are quite current! You can also get many oldies too, I sure cannot complain about selection. However I rarely found movies by going through their list. I would go movie sites and pick out good sounding movies and then check to see if graboid had it. In fact thier selection was probably what I liked the most from graboid. When you bring it up, after logging in, and click on todays most popular, it gives you about 3 pages of the new movies added that day. However, there are many repeats. There can be 12 d/ls for the same movie, some higher quality and most movies run between 1000 mb's and 4000 mb's, this is why I prefer streaming option. It can take up to an hr to d/l a large movie and you can usually choose HD or not, of course they are even larger in size. They also have almost all tv shows!

I watched that video again about how to get usa movies from netflix as it was awhile ago I saw it, it really doesn't look that complicated really. When my graboid account runs out after this month I guess I might consider netflix, it is cheap enough to try.
