With the evolution of the Internet, it has become possible to download movies online directly to your PC. However, you will need to exercise caution when searching for your movies so that you do not accidentally download copyrighted material. Although the majority of movie sites require you to pay a small fee, there are still many around that offer free movie downloads.

Launch your Web browser to open a new page.

Navigate to a website that offers free movies to download (see Resources). Within these sites, you will find links to movies that are legal to download, most of which are free.

Browse through the list of movies available. They will be sorted by genre, and you will also find television shows and documentaries that can be downloaded.

Click the "Download" link when you have decided which movie you want. You will be saving the movie to your hard drive and will need to ensure that you know where the file has been saved. The time it takes to download your movie will depend upon the speed of your Internet connection. Click "OK" to begin the download.

Locate the movie on your hard drive. Double-click the file to open it and begin watching your free movie.


If you want to download movies regularly, it might help to upgrade your Internet connection if you find it to be too slow.


The size of movie files are generally between 600MB and 1.5GB, so make sure you have enough space on your PC to store it.
