If you have ever tried looking for a legal site with movie downloads, you probably encountered numerous sites with movies in low quality, low budget movies, or not a very vast choice of movies. Moreover, many such sites don’t let you download movies to your hard disk, so you have to wait for the streaming video, and oftentimes watch annoying ads every 5 to 10 minutes.
If you’re anything like me, you probably hate ads when watching movies (how can you enjoy the movie if it’s constantly interrupted?) and prefer to download movies (or if you need to watch them online, watch them without any ads). Well, I found a solution to this problem.
Below you’re going to read a list of 7 best sites where you can watch movies online or download them. Each site listed here is 100% legit, safe to use, fast, and ad-free. They are listed in no particular order – check them all and see which one is the best for you.
Amazon.com offers two ways to download movies. The first one is to simply but them as a regular customer. Just go to Amazon’s Movies section and look for movies that you want to buy. You can watch them online or download them to 2 locations (for instance your PC and your tablet).
Amazon Prime is a premium Amazon.com service that lets you access numerous movies and TV series for free (you can either watch them online or download them). Amazon Prime is a great offer for all people who would like to download new movies, because Amazon Prime subscribers have free access to new well-known movies such as The Hunger Games for free (the full list of free movies for Amazon Prime subscribers is here), and Amazon.com constantly adds new titles.

Google Play is similar to Amazon.com and iTunes. You can buy or rent there movies and TV shows. The services of Amazon, iTunes, Google Play and similar services don’t vary that much, so choose the site that you like the most (or that offers the easiest way to sync movies you bought with your devices).
iTunes is the most popular digital TV download market. They offer two ways to watch movies they offer: you can buy them and watch whenever you want or rent a movie, and once you start watching it then you’ll either have 24 hours or 48 hours to watch the movie (you can do it as many times as you wish). iTunes has a very vast library of movies and TV series, so you should find there anything you’re looking for.
Netflix is the most popular video streaming service in the world for a reason. They offer access to thousands of movies and TV series (including the latest titles and Netflix exclusive content) for a very reasonable monthly price. Another important advantage of this site is that there are no ads. You can’t download movies that are available on Netflix (they’re only available for online streaming), but they have very fast servers so you don’t have to wait long for the video to load. Subscribe for a free monthly Netflix trial here.
Vudu is Walmart’s marketplace for movies and TV series. Vudu offers new releases in enhanced HD quality from the select major Hollywood studios the same day they come out on DVD.
Xbox Video is another service that works in the same way as Vudu, iTunes or Amazon Instant Video. The site is accessible through Xbox 360 video game console. You can buy there or rent movies and TV series, including the latest titles.
Watch Movies Anytime Anywhere offers thousands of streaming movies in HD quality. You can’t download movies from their site, but they have pretty fast servers so you won’t even notice when your video will be 100% loaded. You can try the service for free here and decide if it’s for you.
Because I hate ads that interrupt watching, I didn’t include ad-supported movie downloads sites. If you’re interested in sites with ads, check my other two articles: Free Movies Online Without Downloading and Watch New Movies Online.
