4. YouTube: (Channels like Aforevo, Moreplex)

So far in 2022, we will say YouTube is the popular online website for streaming and watching video and audio (Visual audio) content. Movies can be downloaded on YouTube as well, but nits not legal to do that.

YouTube prefer their users to rather stream contents uploaded there online. This is a way to monetize video content and also help them run their businesses like showing advertisements and many others.

In this guide we won’t be encouraging our readers to violate the terms of businesses. So we would advice our readers to rather stream these videos or movies and then later add them to their save or watch later list. 

In this case, they will find it easier to locate these movies again if they are not able to finish watching when they first started. Another alternative is for individuals using Android mobile phones.

There are YouTube apps already installed on these phone when bought. You can stream these movies on there, save it and watch it later even if your are off line.

GenYoutube is a website like Tubidy, they allows their users download all videos on YouTube. They are also like Vidmate, but they can be accessed online only for now. 

GenYouTube was added to our free listing because its one of the popular and most searched sites for downloading movies for free online in Africa. 

Just as said earlier downloading content on YouTube is a breach of terms and one can be sued for performing such activity. 

We will recommend our readers rather stream these movies online or pay/buy subscription and download their favourite movies on the below listed websites.

6. Light downloads (Lightdlmovies):

Light downloads is also popularly known as lightdlmovies. Light downloads is a website for downloading movies just like Netnaija. It has a huge catalogue of movies from TV series, Hollywood, Bollywood, drama, documentary, comedy, biography, crime, history, sports, movie trailers etc. and also added games, software and anime to it’s current website.

To download a movie on light downloads, all you need to do is to select your preferred movie, and then proceed to download. You are also allowed to select the movie quality sometimes.

One astounding thing about this website is, it has a huge catalogue as said earlier and you can locate your preferred movie easily by using the categories and search bar.

The only con about light downloads is that, the website seem to look very crowed and is full of pop up advertisements, and redirects which can be annoying sometimes.

To preserve yourself from all this, we will advise our readers to turn on their “pop up block” setting in their browser and also use the search button if the category button seem to look crowded together.

Currently, we will say it one of the best entertainment website on the internet now considering its broad

7. O2TV Series:

O2tv series is also a free website were you can download all new and popular released series for free. Not only download, you can also stream all your series as well. I personally love the interface and how all movies are arranged in catalogues. The only con about the site is, the serach bar on the site somehow malfunctions.

Thus, when you search for a keyword in the title of your preferred series, its like you won’t find it in a pop up after the search.

But if you get the time to glance through the list well you might find it. Talking about list, all movies are categorized by their first Alphabet. So lets say to download or stream the SWAT series. You have to hop on the S catalogue of movies. Another example, lets say you want to stream or download Sex education series. You’ll also have to hop on the S catalogue.

Downloading there is easy compared to other free websites. There are not sort of ads and pop ups. You can use and ad blocker to access the website freely and smoothly with encountering any discrepancies.
