Review of LetMeWatchThis
Updated: August 31, 2018
LetMeWatchThis is a free movie streaming site which is part of the same network as movie streaming sites PrimeWire, and 1Channel. The site offers free movie streaming “without paying the ridiculous theater prices” (in their own words), with an offering of over 21,000 films, including vintage (pre-1960s) and modern films such as new releases.
LetMeWatchThis and its sister channels PrimeWire and 1 Channel are among the most recommended free movie streaming sites, especially on Reddit. But, are they legit? Are they safe? And will you face legal repercussions for watching?
Is Let Me Watch This Legit?
Let Me Watch this is one of the most popular free movie streaming sites, offering to let you watch thousands of movies online. But, when I first brought the site up for this article I clicked on what looked like the menu bar at the top of the site and immediately got 3 new windows popping up. Although sites that do this can usually be expected to be up to no good, just doing this is only annoying. Unfortunately, one of these pop-ups tried to download something that I can only assume was a virus (why else would you trick someone into downloading something?).
Aside from this, the site does use hidden ads to earn money, which can be dangerous if you click on links. For example, it may link you out to a site which attempts to download malware onto your computer, and you may click on a link that attempts to download adware or other similar unwanted programs.
If you really insist on trying the site, be sure that you are running good anti-virus software.
Overall, if you’re not accustomed to spammy websites and don’t know when to click download or accept, you may find yourself with malware or spamware on your computer. For the best results, never use this site without an antivirus program, a firewall running, and a tool like Ad Block to prevent ads.
Let Me Watch This links out to a lot of other websites, which means that you may face different and unknown safety issues when you click on a movie to watch. The site primarily gets around copyright regulation by linking to films on the deep web, rather than hosting them themselves, which I am sure they are hoping will save the site from being responsible for pirated content. We’ll see how that goes.
Overall, Let Me Watch This is kind of a decent site, but it does offer illegal content. If you’re looking for free movies and tv shows, there are plenty of safer and more legitimate sources to choose from. If you’re looking for new releases and more modern films, there are plenty of subscription options like Amazon Video and Netflix that can be a safer solution.
Would I use it? No way! If it doesn’t give you a virus, the sites they link out to are undoubtedly logging what you watched illegally and it’s probably a matter of time before they are busted and those logs are confiscated.
If you insist on really, really wanting to try this site then get a VPN and protect yourself from those logs!
