From the earliest days of the Internet I never purchased any application. Before computers came fully bloated with Windows I used Linux. That is a fantastic free open source program.
Getting bloated computers I always downloaded other browsers, malware protectors, etc. Anything that asked for money was deleted and replaced.
When I want to watch movies/television shows online I’d do a simple search: “Watch Free — Online” and get a number of options.
I have never joined/paid/touted any site. I watch everything free online.
Sometimes I think to ‘announce’ one of the sites but know that if I do some blockage might take place.
