    Free movie streaming apps in the app store- Are they legal?


    I see all these movie streaming apps in the Windows app store like Movie Tube. Are these legit? Streaming movies that just came out on video free seems like a trap to me. Are these malware? Illegal? Will I get a MPAA letter from my cable co?

    Just did a quick check on Google for Movie Tube. From what I found Movie Tube has been sued and they lost the case. I would stay away from them. MovieTube Sued by MPAA: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know | Heavy.com

    Hi there

    Netflix/Amazon etc are legal -- others I'd stay away from --even some stuff on You Tube can be considered as Pirated.
