Watch Slumdog Millionaire Free Online? A How To Guide

By Matt Wainwright

If you've found this article from a search, I'm betting there's a reasonably good chance that you are looking for ways to watch Slumdog Millionaire - Am I right? If I am, then listen up I've got some info for you.

The great thing about the Internet is the vast number of sites out there that will allow you to watch the latest movies on-line. You just need to find the site that best suits your needs, and then arm yourself with the right information before you make any decisions.

The main problem people always faced was the poor quality of the downloads that were available in the past. The downloads were usually only part of a film - not a full movie, were painfully slow to load, or were virtually useless because the quality of the picture was so poor.

With the advent of high-speed broadband, all this has changed. Almost anyone can now download and watch all the latest movies, or all their favorite movies at home.

I often get asked if it's possible to download movies without paying a dime, and the honest answer is yes you can. I never recommend that you do that though because of the risk of the download being infected with a virus or adware, or even more upsetting, to find the the movie has had spyware deliberately installed before you download it - this is how some websites make their money.

What's the alternative? You can join a paid movie download site for a small one-time fee of around $30 to $40. The fee is probably less than it would cost for a family ticket and popcorn at your local movie theatre, and for that there is no limit to the amount of movies you can download.

So, if you've decided that you want to download Slumdog Millionaire free, but you also want an environment where you'll have maximum choice and still remain safe, what should you look out for in a service?

1. A Money Back Guarantee - This is the best way to ensure that the service is legitimate. Most good services offer a minimum of 30 days, the best offer 60 days as a guarantee.

2. An Unlimited Download Policy - The best services will allow you to download as many movies as you want. After all, there's no point having a database of 1000's of movies if you are limited to just 5 or 6 per day.

3. Do They Offer Customer Support? - When you pay your fee to join a movie download site, you expect to be able to contact someone if something goes wrong or there's something you don't understand. Most services are pretty good at this now, with the best services being available round the clock.

If you are looking for a reputable service, similar to the one that I use, you can click on any of the links included in this piece. Your other option is to search on Google for something along the lines of 'movie downloads for free' and you will find enough sites to keep you going for a long time - just be careful to check each site out carefully before you commit.

It no longer takes hours and hours, or even days, to download a DVD quality movie like it did until recently. The average size of a movie is less than 1000mb, which can easily be downloaded in an hour by a modern PC.

With the best download services, you can watch your new movies either on your computer screen, or you have the option of burning the movie to disk and adding it to your collection.

In summary, firstly you would be best choosing a service that will charge you a one-off joining fee (and no ongoing fees), this fee protects you from malicious files and gives you access to 1000's of movies, TV shows and music tracks as well (often there is a small additional fee for the TV and music add-ons).

Secondly you must make sure that the service you choose has a guarantee policy and a customer support program that will protect you should anything go wrong. You are not risking a huge amount of money here, but if you follow this guidance you should keep out of harms way. - 16651
