Like Tron Legacy. Because that movie never ****ing was available from netflix till it was on streaming.
That and if you download 720p rips they're at least 4-8GB, 1080p rips are usually 10-15GB. Avatar in 1080 (extended edition just short of 3 hours) was almost 17GB.

Yeah, and I don't want to bog down my macbook, and I'm far too cheap to spend money on an external harddrive.

Not for a long time. It's not worth shelling out the money for a blu ray movie when you can get the same one on DVD for 1/2 or 1/3 of the cost.

Only way to tell personally is to research the titles you have/want and compare them to the DVDs. I personally don't have to shell out anything, I just download everything and my blu-ray player will play everything through my external hard-drive.

Don't you download mp3s illegally? If you're robbing the candy store, you might as well go rob the bank.

There's many ways to avoid buying BD's if you don't want to go down that route Kizzle.

I'm a piratebay whore. I'll admit it.

I do use megaupload and such when I download movies.

One reason not to use piratebay? hmm, well one reason not to use torrents in general for me is a nice email from some starz lawyers not exactly requesting I cease activity on some Spartacus seasons. I had no problem complying with that request and must say that I haven't downloaded any movies or tv shows via torrents since.

However, newsgroups have always been where its at even with paying for quality service. The only problem is where do you store all those gigs? I was around 400 gigs a month, just 24/7 queuing it up. And that was like 4 years ago. I would probably need like (5) 2 TB drives on rotation..and eh, to each there own. I'd rather just have the retail..

Anyways, good thread!

I got too many e-mails for my ISP using Pirate Bay and other public sites because a sniffer would log my IP, they'd find out what ISP I used, then e-mail my ISP my IP address then the ISP would send me e-mails/letters basically saying, "Stop downloading copyrighted material or we will disconnect your service." After the 3rd warning I only use private torrent sites now. And even then you can still get caught, but very very rarely. I've been using private sites and direct download sites only for the last year and I haven't gotten contacted yet. But right before that when I used sites like Pirate Bay I got up to 3 e-mails within a couple month span. Almost everything I download is through direct download sites like MegaUpload.

It's one of those things where the ISP doesn't give a crap what you download. You're paying for their service, but if they keep getting bugged by the RIAA with what you're doing and they have to keep warning you, they'll disconnect your service because it's become a nuisance to them.
