How to watch the latest US TV shows and movies FREE

I live in Thailand and have cable TV however i'm limited to 60 channels and most of them show Thai tv shows and movies. There are English and US TV shows and movies but they are so old and being a huge movie buff I've seen everything that has been shown. Lately i've really been missing my US television shows like Weeds, Gossip Girl, and Heroes. So I decided to do a little searching around to figure out how I can get these shows.

After a lot of research I came to the following conclusions. The US doesn't want anyone not in North America to be able to watch there shows. They are always blocked sites like Hulu which I used to watch a lot back in California are blocked to anyone outside of the US. It's very frustrating.

So the newest TV shows were recently released, 2 Broke Girls and Terra Nova. Terra Nova being the one I really wanted to watch, enough was enough, I had to find a solution. And I found a way to watch Free movies online and Free TV shows online. The best part about the solution and what I'm going to show is you don't have to sit at your computer to watch the shows either, you can watch them on your Flat screen TV, Plasma TV or whatever TV you have.

To get started first you want to go to the website that allows you to download the movies and TV shows for free. Go to Graboid Video
Get Graboid Video
. Download the software and install it on your computer, you'll need an email address as well in order to sign up. Make sure you create a new email address this is important later on for getting Free movies all the time, i like to use something like my name and the number 1 like chrisinchiangmaithailand1@gmail.com. When your in Thailand sometimes Gmail asks you for your phone number and sends a text message to your phone in order to activate your gmail account make sure you have your cell phone handy.

Every account you have you get 2000 megabytes to download, if you download a HD movie it's roughly 1500 megabytes so you don't get that much, i'm not too fussed if it's HD or not so I'll download only the non-HD movies and then I get two movies and a couple of shows. This is how the program looks after you've logged in.



Find a movie and download it to your computer. Now you might be thinking "oh great I have to watch the movies on my computer". Far from it. See most of the latest model TV's that you buy these days have a handydrive jack or memory card jack. I use a thumb drive. Click on the link that says locate to find the movie or TV show on your computer, transfer it to the thumb drive and normally it's just as simple as plugging the thumb drive into your TV and the movie should start playing. If you have an old style TV which probably comes with your Guest house or hotel room then go out and buy a DVD player from Lotus Tesco or Makro Target if your in the states or Australia. These things are normally priced around $50 I bought mine for $26 out of Lotus. Make sure it has a thumb drive jack if it does you'll be able to watch the movies directly from your TV just like the picture shown below.


Watch free movies from your old tv

Once you have used up the megabytes in your account you won't be able to download any more. Well that sucks doesn't it, but I wouldn't waste my time telling you how to get movies and tv shows for free if I didn't also have a way around it either.

How to create multiple graboid accounts

As of this writing graboid doesn't block by the use of IP address it does it by accounts. So you could have graboid loaded on your computer and keep signing in using different accounts and all your movies are still there in the same place. The hitch is once you've downloaded installed and created your account on one computer you can never be able to create another account on the computer again. So you need to be able to create 10 if not hundreds of graboid accounts.

Now living in thailand this is very simple however doesn't matter where you live you could do the same thing. What I do is I go to the local Internet cafe and download and create a new account. Typically these Internet Cafes load the operating system into memory each time, this is typical of an internet game shop but not for internet cafes that service tourists so go to a game shop, it's way cheaper anyway. They have super fast connections so typically it takes only 5 minutes to download and install.

What I did is using the email address I told you guys to create earlier like chrisinchiangmaithailand1@gmail.com then i create chrisinchiangmaithailand2@gmail.com and chrisinchiangmaithailand3@gmail.com and so on. I've created 100 of these email addresses. Then I just download and install graboid 100 times using the same account. Sure it took me about 3 hours to do this at the internet cafe, though most the time i'm sitting around waiting. But now I have over 100 graboid accounts and enough accounts to watch Free movies and Free tv shows for the next 6 months, depending on the frequency in which I watch tv. You don't have to to download the movies now at the internet cafe you can go home and use all the accounts youve made.

Of course you can buy megabytes using Graboid if you don't want to be a cheap ass like me it's around $30 USD for 50 gigabytes or roughly 60 movies. It's a pretty good deal and all the movies on there are the latest releases before they come on DVD too, though the new release movies are not HD quality and roughly 95% but if you don't pay it's actually a really good deal.

I will say this depending on your download speeds it can take up to 5 hours to download one movie. What I normally do is I'll kick off a few downloads then go to bed and repeat the next day. Eventually I don't have to wait around for movies to download because I've already got them all. I watched Terra Nova the latest TV show in america the day after it played on US TV if you are looking for the best way to watch TV shows and movies for free then this is the way to go.

    Nice info.

    I’ll return the favor by showing how to do the same and not having to create any extra gmail accounts….
    You can in fact use your primary gmail acct if u so wish.
    Here’s how: add a +AndWhatever after your alredy registered email account name.. Example:

    Lets say your MAIN Gmail account is:
    ChrisInThailand@gmail.com

    Then to make a ‘new’ email address (but all email will go to this same account – use filters etc to group your different emails)
    As a result:
    ChrisInThailand+test1@gmail.com
    ChrisInThailand+test2@gmail.com
    ChrisInThailand+test3@gmail.com
    ChrisInThailand+test4@gmail.com
    ChrisInThailand+test5@gmail.com
    ChrisInThailand+ThisIsAnotherEmail@gmail.com
    Will all be accepted as unique email addresses thru signup forms, but all email sent TO these emails – end up in the same
    account ( ChrisInThailand@gmail.com )

    Neat ?

    Want a tip on how u can avoid having to goto Internet Cafe’s to register over and over again – just message me at my registered addie here 🙂

    Torrents are a much better way to download stuff. It’s free and you dont have to register anything. Just download the uTorrent client and go to torrentz.eu to search for any TV show or movie you want. It’s so much faster than doing all those nonsense accounts. My 2 terrabytes harddrive is already full of movies and TV series.

      I’d agree however once you’ve tried graboid you’ll think differently, the quality of the movies are way better, they have HD and full adult movies and every download works unlike torrents.

    Have to agree with zorro. u can queue up and download the latest tv shows (movies usually not available until dvd is released, unless u don’t mind low quality cam vids) using torrents. Torrents are available in both std def and hd. using torrernts, i’ve downloaded entire seasons of tv shows in hd quality to watch at my convenience. as for the reliabilty of torrents, once you start using them you’ll get a feel for which uploaders provide perfect torrents vs. which ones are garbage.
