I don’t think thats what the OP is looking for. I think they are looking for something via a BIT torrent. I guess no one has suggested anything because its illegal now.

Free but limited, paid opens other avenues and superfast simultaneous downloading etc etc etc.

EDITED. Sorry, but you should not post links to illegal sites. Talk about it, but no direct links please.

Bittorrents are not illegal per say, it is just torrent sites that does not remove illegal torrents that are illegal. It is like Google would be illegal if Google didn't remove links to illegal sites.

There are a few excellent sites to download films and tv torrents, however unless you know what you are doing I would steer away and use trusted sites such as iTunes or you could cause yourself a whole heap of heartache with malware,virus's, pups and other unwanted stuff.

Download Kodi onto your device.

You will have access to literally tens of thousands of movies and TV programmes, many in HD quality.

There are loads of Kodi tutorials on youtube if needed.

Apart from those, Netflix costs under 10 euros a month. With a little bit of creative accountancy because you can watch on up to four different devices, you could share the account and pay as little as 4 euros.
The most recent update has included the facility to download and watch later.
You can also try before you buy for a month.

I think Netflix uses regional coding and blocks VPNs, so I have heard anyway. It means you have to use the spanish Netflix.

Just saying there they can block it any time and you if you have paid for it you probably won't get anything back after they have blocked it. Netflix have blocked VPNs in both US and Sweden as far as I know.

SmartyDNS I recall did have an issue back around last March with Netflix, they had it resolved in 48 hours. Pretty happy with one small blip in service in more than two years of using SmartyDNS, however, Netflix is just one small part of what Smarty gives access too.

Tried it and all I get when trying to view a movie is "Video not available, try another server" :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

Drop down box wasn't showing but I found the latest version of showbox and that works OK.
However much of the content seems to have been pirated so I have deleted the app.

Yep Gerry I would say virtually all the content is "pirated" and most is very poor quality streams, lots of buffering due to their sketchy servers.....tried it a while back for a couple of days....... 2 out of 10. In my opinion its absolute Tosh

If you are selecting a specific VPN for streaming from big sites such as Netflix, do some research first and select one that has a reputation to solve eventual blocks, like Nord. When Netflix figures out which IP:s the VPN use they will block it.

Better to use a Smart DNS service, it obscures the IP address–and thereby the location–of the user, making it possible to bypass geographic restrictions. Also Smart DNS's are much faster as they don't slow your internet speeds like VPN'S do...therefore higher quality streams and far less buffering...if any, especially good if you are on a low download speed to begin with.
