As of October 2015, there are no available television shows to watch on Megashare. However, popular movies available to watch on the site include "Horns," "Playing it Cool," "Into the Storm," "Wer" and "The Guest." Additional titles available on Megashare are "Iron Man 3," "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Man of Steel" and "Snowpiercer."
Megashare launched in 2010 as a branch of MegaUpload.com. In January 2012, the United States Department of Justice shut down MegaUpload.com amidst accusations of copyright infringement. Megashare continued to grow in popularity from 2010 until 2014 in spite of questions regarding the site's legality.
On April 21, 2014, Megashare released a message on its site stating that it was closing down and that no new movies would be uploaded. The main reason for shutdown, according to Megashare, was problems with the site's video hosting company. On April 28, 2014, Megashare stated on its homepage that its video hosting company removed most of the videos it hosted because of copyright infringement reports.
As of October 2015, certain movies are still available to watch on the site, though the selection is much smaller than the thousands of movies and television shows that were available to watch on Megashare prior to April 2014.
