But anyway you're right that it's about your own conscience, whether you want to support the movie makers or not.
Baykko, 05 Dec 2019Just one question? Is that site totally legal? Because that sounds a lot like a piracy site. t... morei used to download movies as well from torrent until a few months ago. i was really not a movie person so i figured it'd be wa waste to maintain a netflix account. i was more of a music person and since 2011 have had my premium subscription to spotify. like your reason here, at least with these subscription services we still have a way to support these content producers in our meager way. it took me years to realize that the same applies to movies or tv shows, so back in August i took the bitter pill of subscribing to netflix.

Because that sounds a lot like a piracy site. the good thing about streaming platforms like Netflix is that it makes it easy for average users to support the production of good content and helping the industry grow. Piracy helps nobody but the ones running such pirate networks. I myself have used pirate sites but that's only when what I'm looking for is available in no other way.
Also its not totally the streaming sites fault. Look at Disney, taking everything they can away from Netflix to create their own platform. So is HBO and idk how many others. Greed makes them create their own platforms instead of unifying everything under one brand.
Well at least is free.
Apple diont have any advertising in their devices but they have no shame to pay some pop star or TV star several million dollars for advertising and the black people of africa starving to death.
Thats not very nice.
Why they shouldnt instead of paying several millions to a celebrity spend for example ten thousdant to a poor citizens from poorest countries just to make advertising for them.
It's a good idea, but it suffers the same issues as other streaming services - none of them have "all" movies, i.e. they have to reach for all these companies for rights to stream the movies. Meanwhile all those sites like fmovies have virtually all the movies available because they're not dependent on anyone.
I actually used to have access to Netflix myself, but usually I still ended up on fmovies.to because I didn't want to bother logging in just to see what movies Netflix had available. At one point they actually lost the rights to stream Pulp Fiction for some reason, and seriously who would pay 10$ a month for a streaming service that doesn't even allow him to watch Pulp Fiction?
