As of January 2016, it is illegal to watch, download or share new action movies for free without the appropriate copyright permissions. Most film owners, including those of action movies, protect their movies with very strict copyright laws that prohibit streaming or distribution of their movies for free. There are plenty of websites that claim to allow you to watch new movies for free online, but this is illegal, and there is a real risk of getting caught and fined.
Most new movies, including action movies, are available for streaming for a price on websites such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime and iTunes within a few weeks of their release. In order to watch movies on these websites, it is mandatory to setup an account and subscribe to the service. The pricing and services offered by each service varies slightly. Interested customers can also buy individual movies on Amazon.com and iTunes. The main advantage with subscription services is that they allow unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows.
Amazon.com has a vast collection of action movies and continuously adds new movies to its library. Customers can rent or buy movies or watch them for free with an Amazon Prime subscription. Movies are available with closed captioning in HD format. As of January 2016, interested patrons can opt for a 30-day free trial to test the service.
