Download Movies to iPhone from Free Movie Download Sites

Here I collected some sites which offers free movie download. (Note: Sometimes there are piracy movies in these sites, please identify the copyright risk yourself.)


This team is pretty famous in PirateBay, they are famous for the excellent computer skills. In general, they can provide a 720P movie with less than 1GB in size. And they are offering movies totally free, there are no watermarks or ads in the video.

2. Hydronite

Another wonderful site just like YIFY, the only flaw is they require user to register to get the videos. And another shortage is people must install a tool called "Graboid" to download a moive. According to their description, this tool is similar with emule or kazaa.

3. Archive

I regard it as the Wikipedia in media area, it collects 1,356,392 movies, 119,084 concerts, 1,682,646 recordings and 4,738,239 texts for now. Many videos collected by this site is pretty precious, like those videos shot in 1920s. Anyone can watch videos online or download to local for free and without any form of registration.
