Where can I legally stream TV shows, movies, and current documentaries without ads?

Shardajo November 3, 2011

Want to stream legal pre-1970s classic TV shows, movies, and current documentaries. Would rather pay more than sit through ads.

Any recommendations? Thanks!

    Hello, at the risk of sounding thick.....do you mean ads in your browser? or ads on the shows?  Mostly if you are using any streaming service with a free account, it will include ads.  If there were no ads, you could not get the content for free.  Most sites that provide streaming services offer paid accounts that will give you more speed for downloading and also they cut down on the ads or get rid of them altogether.  What streaming service are you planning to use?  See what services you are allowed to use and then review their plans.  In most of them you can buy by the day, monthly, every three months, yearly, etc.  Is Megaupload one of the services for streaming?  They offer pretty fast download and pretty good accounts.  Once you get their paid services, you can use megavideo which is a streaming service.


    Of course there are many services available.  Just look for services available for that specific site you have in mind, review their plans and pick the one that suits your needs better.

    If there are ads/pops in the browser, I would say use a browser like firefox and chrome.  If you use firefox, just add the no-script add-on and the adblock plus and you should be good to go.  If you use Chrome, they also have the no-script add-on but it is not as efficient as the one in firefox.  Also they have the adblock add-on.


    No-script add-on:

    Adblock plus
