Free movies from the public domain

Free movies from the public domain

These are films that are usually of a vintage nature (that means a few years old to you and me), or sometimes more modern films that  have slipped out of copyright and entered the public domain. Alternatively sometimes the film’s owners decide to contribute it for public consumption and they forgo any royalties.

This means that no one owns copyright on the films and you can watch them for free. So if you can look past the age of the movies, then you get an amazing number of classic full-length motion picture films, b-movies, cartoons, documentaries and other videos for no cost.

It’s paradise city for those of you cutting the cord, and as a bonus many can be downloaded for offline viewing.

You can watch most of these movies from any connected hardware that can run a browser, and from anywhere in the world. From smartphones, tablets, computers, Macs and streaming boxes. No fees, software, or registration is needed to download or play the movie.

The only slight problem is determining whether a movie is out of copyright. You can sometimes gauge it from the year the film was made. For instance any film made before the mid 1920′s will usually be copyright free. But many films made up to 1964 are also free to use,view or download.

But the good news is that you don’t need to worry about copyright details, you can just visit one of the many websites that cater to free public domain movies. We have compiled a list of the best public domain movie websites here.

Retail Outlet Target Enter The TV and Movie Streaming Market

US retail giant, Target are entering the internet TV arena with a new service called Target Ticket. The service will offer consumers digital movies and TV episodes to purchase or rent.

target-ticketTarget who are the second biggest retailer in the US, behind Walmart (who own the Vudu streaming service), have been trialling the streaming service with company employees for a while, and are now almost ready to unleash it onto the public.

The targetticket.com website promises a 15,000 catalog of media that includes new movies (some prior to DVD release), classic films and next-day TV with instant access. Titles will include both current and archive content from providers including ABC, AMC, CBS, CW, Fox, FX, HBO, The WB, NBC, Showtime and Starz

The service which will include  parental controls and easy purchase options, will be available for PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices. Support for consoles, Blu-Ray players and other connected hardware is said to be coming too.

The service is also said to support the Ultraviolet standard, which lets buyers of physical discs get access to a streaming version for free. Costs are expected to be high (just like iTunes) for movie purchases from $12.99-$14.99. Movie rentals will be between $3.99-$4.99 with TV shows from $2.99 and full seasons at $35.

Netflix Lose Titles Taken By Warner Archive Instant

The ‘Oldie but Goldie’ streaming service, Warner Archive Instant has an unusual business model. Charge more than Netflix or Hulu and show only old stuff! But as a consequence, Netflix are losing a big chunk of their catalog as Warner take the content to their new site.
Warner-Brothers-archive-instantReported by Slate as a, “Streamageddon”, Netflix are said to have lost an estimated 1,794 movies from the Warner Brothers archives, just in time for Warner Brothers to add them exclusively to their own internet TV service.
To complicate matters, Warner in a tweet denied they had pulled the movies from Netflix, and Netflix themselves seemed to confirm this when they stated that the missing content was due to an Epix agreement expiring, and that many more titles will replace the ones leaving. In an email sent to the press, Netflix said,
“The vast majority of the titles that expire on Wednesday are older features that were aggregated by Epix. We recently added many great, more recent titles such as ParaNorman (Universal), Hunger Games (Epix), Safe (Epix) and Bachelorette (Weinstein). Tomorrow we will also add MI:2, among many other titles. Netflix is a dynamic service, we constantly update the TV shows and movies that are available to our members. We will add more than 500 titles May 1, but we also have titles expiring, this ebb and flow happens all the time.”
The WB Archive instant service for US viewers launched last month, costing $10 monthly (compared to $8 for Netflix), runs on PC’s, tablets, phones and Roku streamers  and offers instant viewing of “rare and hard-to-find movies and TV” shows. When they say rare, they mean rare. The archives are said to head all the way back to the 1920′s.

Google Video Hosting Comes To An End

It is the end of a video hosting era. If you have any videos stored at Google’s “Google Video” service, then maybe you should head over there and grab them. Google have decided to inform via email to users that it is closing down the video hosting service. Most users probably realise by now as Google has stopped taking video uploads for 2 of years now.

Google is asking users to migrate their video material to YouTube, its video site. Google’s move is not unexpected, with YouTube’s place in the market. The Google Video service began in 2005, the year before Google bought YouTube for a bank busting $1.65 billion. Google said: “We would instead focus its efforts on video search technologies.”

 

Here’s the email that went out:-

Dear Google Video User,

Later this month, hosted video content on Google Video will no longer be available for playback. Google Video stopped taking uploads in May 2009 and now we’re removing the remaining hosted content. We’ve always maintained that the strength of Google Video is its ability to let people search videos from across the web, regardless of where those videos are hosted. And this move will enable us to focus on developing these technologies further to the benefit of searchers worldwide.

On April 29, 2011, videos that have been uploaded to Google Video will no longer be available for playback. We’ve added a Download button to the video status page, so you can download any video content you want to save. If you don’t want to download your content, you don’t need to do anything. (The Download feature will be disabled after May 13, 2011.)

We encourage you to move to your content to YouTube if you haven’t done so already. YouTube offers many video hosting options including the ability to share your videos privately or in an unlisted manner. To learn more go here.

Here’s how to download your videos:
Go to the Video Status page.To download a video to your computer, click the Download Video link located on the right side of each of your videos in the Actions column.

Once a video has been downloaded, “Already Downloaded” will appear next to the Download Video link.
If you have many videos on Google Video, you may need to use the paging controls located on the bottom right of the page to access them all.

Please note: This download option will be available through May 13, 2011.

Thank you for being a Google Video user.

It was an obvious move as Google video has become increasingly irrelevant.
