Safe tv download site?

Postby Rosaboobie » Sat Jan 24, 2015 5:52 am

Does anyone know anything about this download site? I am wanting to download the complete Series 1 of Broadchurch but it is saying I have to download and run AsFile, Publish2 or Keep2Share to use this facility. Just not sure if any of these are safe or not.

Edit: I want to download this series specifically, and not just watch them online, as sometimes my internet connection is not that speedy in this awful weather we are having.

What site is this?

The download of the entire first season would be ginormous... what about getting the DVD from Amazon? Then you could watch each episode at your leisure?

That's a Region 1 DVD using NTSC, so Rosaboobie would need a multi-region DVD player.
Maybe she already has a multi-region DVD player, but it's something to be aware of.

====================================================

Maybe Rosaboobie is talking about this website
http://loadtv.biz/broadchurch-season-1-2013/

I have no experience with AsFile, Publish2, or Keep2share
As far as I can tell they are simply file sharing services, and they may or may not violate copyright depending on the file in question.

As far as I can tell, loadtv.biz will remove copyrighted material if requested.

Oops, sorry, I cant believe I did not put the site link in here -Just blame it on a very very stressful past ten days LOL.

This is the site I want to download it from - http://loadtv.biz/broadchurch-season-1-2013/

I am becoming a cheapskate - I didnt want to buy the DVD - I just want to watch the first series. Series 2 is currently being aired on local tv, and I dont really understand it, cos it keeps referring back to previous episodes. So I am merely recording this second series - on a tv recorder that has to be returned within the next week - hence my haste to watch ALL episodes before I return this darn Goodmans machine............. Life is never simple, is it??? :roll:

An alternative to downloading an entire DVD-quality series is to watch on YouTube, where the files are compressed.

You'll have to log in because there is a "mature audience" requirement.

Those links are the mirrors where you download the material. If you don't pay for the premium service, you are limited to a maximum of 50 kb/s download speed with no ability to pause or resume a download. Each of the Broadchurch episodes appears to take roughly 1 1/2 hours to download with the entire Season 1 taking about 12 - 15 hours to download. So this really doesn't help with your issue of an unreliable internet connection as if there is a problem during a download, you would have to start all over. You still might be better off at least attempting to stream or watch the episodes on-line or on You-tube as middletoe suggests as there are no guarantees that this will be any better... unless you want to pay for the premium service.

Ok, maybe I will have to do that middletoe and Drac - thanks, folks, for all your help and input :cool:

At the end of the day, it's only a tv programme - much more important things in life to worry about - and I am sure both series will be repeated at some point in the future, because the first series was a resounding success.

The other advantage of buying the dvd is that it's legal - loadtv.biz offers downloads of tv shows and movies without permission of the copyright holders, and even if you pay for the premium service nothing goes to the creators. It's liable to be removed without warning if the owners notice the material is up there - the YouTube links middletoe pointed at are blocked for me, at least. And of course if a site is unscrupulous enough to be offering pirated material, they're probably not the most trustworthy as regards safety from viruses/malware.

You can get the dvd for under a tenner (with free UK delivery) from the BBC shop, if that helps:

They want $1.99 per episode to watch, but I wasn't aware they had a regional restriction on them.

That's a much better deal than Amazon. The one BBC is selling is Region 2 so you wouldn't need a multi-region DVD player in the UK.
