This Brazilian blog site in operation since July 2008 is dedicated to distributing infringing music content. It is only available in Portuguese and is very popular in Brazil where it has an Alexa ranking of 2,102. The site has approximately 2.4 million monthly users according to SimilarWeb.
The site is dedicated to international and local music repertoire, including popular American music, as well as books, games, movies and music concerts, and is updated daily with new links. The site has more than 11,500 posts for infringing music content available, organized by music genres, compilations and full discographies.
The site generates its revenue from advertisements and through the sale of premium accounts. The site has more than 53k “likes” on its Facebook page and 5,000 followers on Twitter. The site provides links to multiple cyberlockers including Uploaded from where the infringing files can be downloaded.
Moviesz is a very cool file sharing site that includes the streaming of movies, TV shows, music, and provides downloading options as well. The site is visited by thousands of users daily while the functionality of the site goes hand in hand with the nice design template.
The site provides access to its files like no other site out there, beginning with the scrolling thumbnail of movies at the top that shows movies uploaded today. The categories at the top are an ordinary part of any site and in here they provide a similar function with the addition of access to music as well as TV Series. Each thumbnail on the page is provided an HD resolution poster as well as a hovering option that informs the user of the movie’s genre, release date, description, quality and number of views. This extremely neat feature is also used when finding shows or music, while upon clicking any file you will be redirected to that files page with even more information and even a trailer. The streaming option is straightforward and does not require site jumping, while the page also provides a torrent download and a direct download through several servers. Everything the user needs to know about what they’re getting is found placed together in one single page, which makes this site one of the best in functionality. What’s even better is the fact that I’ve often wondered if there will be a site that streams with subtitles, and I was amazed seeing that the site provides exactly that. Every upload and every stream also includes English subtitles. In short this site should be the one and only you ever need to visit for streaming movies.
Design and Suggestions
The design is equally useful in providing the least amount of cluttered text while maintaining a very appealing design. Everything is placed together nicely and every piece of text is useful and clickable to provide a better streaming experience. This is one of the most recommended sites in my opinion for streaming.
Another one of the WatchSeries websites, watch-series-tv.to provides an innovative way of finding TV Show content that goes beyond the simple search bar. With many sites of similar base name, they aim to catalogue each every single show that has existed since the dawn of time, and it is rumored that when a WatchSeries site goes down, two rise from its ashes.
A very innovative redesign of the functionality otherwise provided in only a few of the TV Show file sharing sites. The users of WatchSeries will have a lot more time on their hands with the newest features of categorizing by newest episodes added, the week’s popular episodes, and a very useful category that is TV Schedule. The ‘Newest episodes added’ simply provides the latest uploads of episodes or even premiere shows coming out no later than the day before. The week’s popular episodes are based on user ratings and popularity of downloads while the one-of-a-kind TV Schedule is a unique feature that not many websites possess. Similar to IMDb, the site offers the scheduling of shows to be released each day, and the user can specify which day they want to look into. It’s a rule of thumb when looking at the schedule that every episode comes out less than one day from the actual show’s schedule. Also searching for different shows brings clear and concise results while each show is compiled into its own icon instead of showing scattered episodes. Furthermore, registered users can track shows making it easier to binge watch any show you like.
Design and Suggestions
The design is of similar theme to all WatchSeries sites and at this point there’s no need to even mention the design as each of these sites are veterans of the file sharing business in such a way that you may overlook any design flaws. Needless to say, the design is still very efficient as well as has changed over the years to better suit user needs. I would suggest that the homepage TV Shows have their individual box increased to better reveal the show descriptions or make a mouse hovering design specifically for that.
Afdah is a site that merely provides indexing of movies all over the internet. This is done by their web scraper known as Afdah, which is used to scrape the internet for all the recent updates to every single movie as soon as it comes out. Here’s why Afdah is one of the most recommended sites for movie watching.
The home page warmly welcomes every kind of user regardless of the experience due to its easy use and user-friendly built. The user can freely choose from specific genres of movies while also search for movies alphabetically. What makes this more attractive is that when the user clicks into a movie, they are redirected to the movie page that provides a lot of information about the movie, including the movie’s description as well as a commentary by the staff. These commentaries greatly help reduce time looking for good movies because they let the user know if a link works as well as inform the user in which server provided will they have the best quality for the movie, or warn them that the movie doesn’t have a good quality rip out yet. Afdah provides what most movie sites don’t: very efficient movie searches as well as an automatic update of any movie that exists in the web through the scraper code. Usual features are also existing, such as most recent movies, categories by featured or HD movies, as well as there’s a new TV Show menu that is still in beta testing but is sure to become a popular side of the site.
Design and Suggestions
The design fits the site’s goals perfectly which are to simply provide movies. The action movie background as well as the design of thumbnails and the theme color all suggest a certain appeal that makes the user think of movies. I would not suggest but rather encourage the staff to keep up the good work.
Before I start the review I have to say that I am biased towards this site. I have used it multiple times to watch my favorite TV shows. The website has never disappointed me and always has been able to serve some content relating to my favorite shows. Watch series is a search engine for TV shows that contains links for different hosting sites that contain the streaming of the particular show or episode that you are searching for. Watchseries has some of the most updated links on any website on the internet.
The website has a very good and simple design, upon first visit the users are greeted with a homepage that contains the most watched series and shows based on their categories. Users would be able to find the most watched shows in their particular category to get suggestions about the shows that might interest them. The website has categorized all the past and present episodes of the series in a single page that makes it very easy to navigate to the episode that you want to watch. The website also contains multiple tabs that can help the users to sort the shows that are available on the website either based on the genre, popularity or the newest. All of these features combine to make searching for the shows very easy and convenient for the users. The search engine of the website is very accurate and returned the most relevant results for almost all of my searches. The only problem that I faced was the need to go through multiple pages in order to finally get to the show. Some of the older links are also not updated and do contain unplayable files or non-working links, but that problematic portion is very small.
Design and Suggestions
Overall a good website to watch different old and new shows. The simplistic and categorized design of the website makes it very easy to search for different shows. With a very simple design, the purpose of the site focuses on providing quality shows and they indeed deliver. The user can furthermore categorize newest or popular episodes as well as the famous feature TV Schedule to see the upcoming releases.
Yet another file sharing site with focus on movies and TV-Shows is RapidMoviez enabled with the .com domain and providing a rather large database for both movies and shows. Similar to some sites, RapidMoviez seems to be in a tight relationship with RapidRAR while the main page suggests users to get a premium subscription for the best quality gained through the site. Is the site worth paying for a premium account though?
The most attractive feature of the site is the scrolling movies by mouse at the top of the page, while categories also provide due effort on their part by allowing easier selection of movies through recent releases, popular ones, and steaming category. In the base, the site is a file sharing site that allows direct downloading mostly through the RapidRAR host, so clicking WATCH ONLINE redirects the user to the streaming capabilities of the said host while the quality is pretty good. The database is extensively large so that it also provides good quality viewing of very old movies, including black and white ones. On the right are displayed latest episodes for show lovers while just below are popular movies as well as shows for quick viewing. A rather delaying feature shows up when attempting to click the ‘watch’ links below any chosen movies, that in turn redirect to download links rather than streaming sites, so for users who want strict streaming I suggest you make use of the Watch Online category. Overall the site provides a lot of movie choices for movie buffs however the best experience is achieved through getting a premium account on the RapidRAR site; whether that is your thing or not you should definitely decide between a premium subscription on this site or just rather go for a completely free site that might offer the same results.
Design and Suggestions
Being a commercial domain site, RapidMoviez offers a really good design that is effective and works well on any scale. To be honest, the site looks a bit cluttered with the extra information, links, and category boxes all around, but that is a natural part of any site that provides free movies while advertising. I would suggest a better distinction between streaming and downloading movies in a way that both are provided from one link instead of having to switch between direct downloads and streaming links.
The .com domain of MusicAddict gives the site a lot of legitimacy, as well as the name that suggests the site is right for any music lover. The database is rich in providing a large amount of tracks for download while the user base frequency exceeds hundreds of thousands monthly. As a free music provider, MusicAddict is able to do its job very efficiently while providing all the music free of charge.
Having a very user-friendly organization, the site allows for very quick searches for tracks through the search bar placed conveniently at the top of the page. The simplistic view of the site also allows for an attractive and appealing look while any visitor, including a first time user will find it extremely easy to search for music. The Top Music Charts bar on the right helps the user learn of the recent and most popular tracks that come out daily, which greatly reduces the effort spent by fans of these popular genres. Going further down, the site provides two additional categories: Recent and Popular mp3 downloads. The first revealing tracks that were recently uploaded while the second showing popular downloads based on user count. Similarly to the Top Charts, popular mp3 also shows some of the tracks but is rather based on the current download number rather than the popular viewing of songs in the social life. Each link further provides a small download button to the side, however, both clicking the song name and the download button still takes the user to the same page that provides the actual download link. In some tracks, links are provided to external mp3 sites while some tracks also allow for direct download upon clicking. This perhaps makes it less efficient in finding music, in the case where some tracks lead to a completely different site. Overall, the site is very safe and legitimate and like always, strives to provide top downloads of tracks.
Design and Suggestions
The design is ultimately easy to understand as well as very user-friendly in providing functionality. The theme is very easy on the eyes while a first-time user will surely be hooked by the quality of the mp3 tracks that the site provides. I would highly suggest that the site be able to provide direct download links in every track, however it is understood that most music sharing sites only provide gateways to actual downloads, making music easier to be found and downloaded.
The site was formerly known as bomb-mp3, while now it is known as mp3va or MP Eva. The site is very well made and as a music provider it is one of the cheapest sites. Of course this means the site is absolutely not free, but in terms of costs most tracks cost less than 10 cents while newer ones cost just below one dollar. The site is hugely updated daily with the latest albums, hits, and discographies, so as a paying user, you will not regret spending your money here.
Naturally, a site that provides services for pay almost never fails in functionality. This one is very beautifully put together beginning with the nice-looking search bar that you can search the music through, as well as decide if you want to browse more songs, soundtracks, new releases, and charts to view the current best songs and albums. The site also offers free registration and two free tracks upon registering, which is not a bad deal. The banner in the middle of the site offers current special offers such as father’s day specials that give large bonuses to the purchaser. Functionality-wise users can easily maneuver through song searching and even view the latest albums as they come out and get special prices for them. And to conclude, the site is legit in selling its music so do not fear for your money, but as always you can use a side credit card or PayPal account just to be safe.
Design and Suggestions
The design is very attractive, beginning with the logo as well as the name Mp Eva whom I supposed is the girl in the logo carrying a flower. The site is very scalable to any width you require which allows for effective viewing by anyone. Every inch of the page is well contained and well designed and the bottom of the page offers ultimate support for users as well as information on compatibility with your devices, software, etc. I have absolutely no suggestions for this site and reviewing it was a great pleasure.
An interesting fact about this WatchFreeMovies site is that it is yet another of the MovieWatch series that is only known by its popular blue template and thumbnail view of movies. Nowadays there are a few of these sites that offer constant movie uploads in any kind of version.
What makes this site highly functional is the thumbnail view of movies that allows the user to browse while also viewing the movie image. The first category of Featured Movies suggests that the movies are of highest quality available, and they really are. The user can also choose between versions of streaming links that work best for their area, while some streaming providers like PutLocker are almost always on top due to their best streaming quality. Furthermore the site also offers good streaming quality for TV Shows and is fully updated with almost all TV Shows. The category button lets you choose between searching for TV Shows and Movies and then takes you to the page results where every episode and quality format is available for your viewing.
Design & Suggestions
The design of the site is very efficient and simplistic. The viewing of movies in thumbnails makes the site very attractive to both returning and new visitors. What would make the site more efficient is the ability to instantly display search results while typing for the movie or TV Show. That way both TV Shows and movies can be mixed together in the display results. The site overall is one of the best out there, while it provides the user safe links without compromising security.
Free-Tv-Video-Online, formerly known as the popular ProjectFreeTv is a revolutionary site in the streaming of TV Shows. It has been around for a long time and although it has been put down many times by copyright authorities, it still continues to provide its users with the newest TV Shows at the best possible quality.
The site immediately begins with showing popular shows that are also recently updated by the episode, as well as popular TV Shows as a whole. The effective search bar lets you autofill your search for easier finding of TV Shows, while the site also provides a page for movies. The movies page is sadly not as updated as the TV Shows page and it often lacks recent movies. The site has one of the best viewable search results through the scrolling style where the user can just scroll down for any result. The categories also take you to different seasons of a show as well as provide information about the links. To be totally honest, ProjectFreeTV used to be at the peak of its game before it started being harassed for copyright laws. Nowadays, there are many sites that provide the same functionality, and perhaps even better streaming.
Design & Suggestions
The design is as it should be for a streaming site, it is simple and efficient in letting the user work around the site. There are no side banners or extra information to confuse first-time users but as a precaution every user should use AdBlock no matter what site they visit. The only suggestion would be to update streaming links of some TV Shows as they at times tend to not work properly. The movies database should also be better maintained and updated as well.
While their goal is to “bring entertainment closer to fans”, Cucirca tends to deliver completely and effectively. The website has been around for ages and is one of the popular sites that streams TV shows day and night. It is also a fully updated site with almost every TV show out there, so TV show fans will definitely be spending most of their time there.
Functionality wise, Cucirca is one of the most efficiently working sites I have come across. It makes it super easy for any user, with or without English knowledge, to find any show they want. The home page conveniently provides all the TV shows possible, ordered by name. If you scroll down, there is yet another helpful section that lists Top TV Shows as well as Latest shows and episodes. The most remarkable feature I have seen nowhere else except in Cucirca is the Watchlist feature. The user doesn’t need to login to use the watchlist feature because, like for all internet users, cookies will remember everything you do. In some way, that is a genius method of providing a watchlist what saving a lot of HTML and PHP code to add user databases. Last but not least, the search button is automatically filled upon searching shows, which is very useful in getting to your show fast.
Design & Suggestions
The site is designed to specifically provide simplistic features while reducing the workload. This makes visiting the site much faster and finding shows even more so. One of the key suggestions would be to move the section of latest shows a bit more up so the user sees it first. Also, the watchlist would be more helpful if it recommended similar shows, as well as allowed you to watch list a whole show or season instead of single episodes. Overall this is an amazing website.
As a movie buff I am very thankful for free movie-streaming sites. As someone who has spent years on sites such as this I am fully aware of the WatchMovies website series as they are one of the few that actually stream movies without many errors. Naturally there will always be streaming problems when sites offer free movie watching so I could never complain because it’s simply indecent to.
The first time I visited the site I noticed the ‘recent movies’ bar that displays newly released movies in the medium of streaming. This is a very helpful tool for anyone visiting the website both the first time and as a veteran visitor, and for those who are aware of recent releases it is a signal that the site they are visiting is fully updated in the aspect of the movies database. The categories such as New Releases, Featured, Recently Added, are very useful for all visitors and I am particularly fond of the ‘Latest Quality Updates’ category as it shows updates of movies into better versions which helps us track movies that we’ve skipped watching due to a bad cam. Overall I do not have much criticism for the functionality as everything works fine and every button leads you to the right place. Furthermore, I appreciate the work these guys put in just to offer us free movies to watch.
Design & Suggestions
There isn’t much to say about design really, although there could be a neater looking design simply by moving around some items like the colored information, making it more compact, and correctly placing the chat box to not interfere with the rest of the site. I think that placing the movies search higher makes the visitors spend less time looking for it and therefore making it more attractive as a whole.
Overall the site is how it should be: it provides good quality movies and updates them in real time.
Yet another site offering free movie streaming is TubePlus. As there are hundreds of movie streaming sites out there it is still hard to find a decent one that will provide everything you are looking for. TubePlus is one of those sites that you will always appreciate because it’s full of new content and updates regularly.
As we become fast-paced users of the internet, our preferences for efficient sites grow each day. Such a preference is the example of being able to use the least clicks and buttons to get to where we want. In this case, upon visiting TubePlus I observed the neat-looking search bar that you can use to further browse by genre, year, and even ranking and alphabetical order. The bar even has an option to search for movies or TV-shows which makes it a very attractive feature from the perspective of functionality. The categories are well ordered and the main page is divided into popular adult documentaries and the most popular TV episodes, which makes the site even more attractive and full of legit content such as the documentaries mentioned before which I have rarely seen on any other site. On the far right there is a featured box showing the ultimate popular show or movie while also providing 100% correct content regarding the show or movie in mention. The Last Aired category on the far bottom is extremely useful if you want to quickly know about the latest releases of movies and shows without the worry of missing out on one.
Design & Suggestions
The design is both attractive and simplistic and all articles are available with their most recent and updated descriptions as well as pictures and labels that make the user want to stay on the site and explore it further. There are almost no suggestions but since the site is very professional in display and functionality I would suggest one small thing towards making it even better: The two main categories could be interchangeable with other categories at random times or specific intervals for an even more useful view.
