Free TV Show DownloadsAsides Wednesday, March 17th, 2010
If you are a TV freak looking for free TV show downloads, let me tell you it’s not easy to download TV shows for free. This post, however, would guide you about how to get free TV show downloads with minimum hassle.
Where to Look for Free TV Show Downloads
First of all you need to find out the sources to download free TV shows. Most of the sites that you find on search engines will try to lure you with flashy messages offering TV show downloads for free. Most likely they will be selling some kind of paid subscription or will make you download and install some software. Don’t install anything on your computer and if you do, please make sure that you understand what you are installing.
Another thing to note here is that the sites may not provide direct links to free TV show downloads as most of them allow you to watch TV shows online only. We will cover the downloading part later in this post in detail.
Coming back to the sites which provide free TV shows, the two sites which I could find that provide genuine links to download free TV shows are:
Project Free TV: This site has a collection of TV shows that you can download free of cost. Just click on the name of the TV show that you want to download and the site will show you episode-wise links for available downloads. Remember to click on the link with the name of the episode and not the link which says something like “watch in high definition with…”
MoviesPlanet: This site is basically a search engine which gathers links provided by people for the TV shows available for free downloading. When you are on the home page, just search for the TV show that you want to download, select the show that you want to download from the results and you will be taken to a page with the details of the TV show and links where you can watch or download the show for free.
How to Download TV Shows Free of Cost
If you are able to find out the free TV show download that you were looking for, it would need some more items and steps to actually download the TV show on your computer.
The items that you would need to download TV show are Mozilla Firefox browser and the Video DownloadHelper add-on for Firefox. First install the add-on and then open the link to free TV show download in Firefox. As already mentioned, with the links you get from the above two sites, you will most likely get to a site streaming the TV show. Just play the video in Firefox as usual and once the video starts streaming, you will notice that the Video DownloadHelper add-on’s icon in the navigation toolbar becomes active. Use that to download the TV show on your computer.
Before downloading TV shows for free, please consider that it may not be legal in your country to download these videos.
If everything is fine then just relax and enjoy your free TV show downloads.
