Megashare works by embedding video content hosted on other websites. Many of the movies featured on Megashare are illegal to stream for free in the United States. The best way to avoid streaming illegally uploaded content is to use licensed streaming services instead of Megashare.
Legal alternatives to Megashare include Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Instant Video. Netflix is a subscription service that allows users to stream an unlimited number of movies and TV shows from its catalog, with the option to enjoy high-definition content, rent DVDs and Blu-Ray discs, and view content on multiple devices simultaneously. Disc rentals, high-definition content and multiple-device viewing are all add-on features that incur an additional fee.
Hulu offers both free and paid streaming, and its service is ad-supported. Paid users still see ads, but receive access to a larger content library. All users can stream an unlimited number of movies and TV shows from the Hulu catalog. Hulu also offers an optional Showtime subscription, giving members access to Showtime's original programming for an additional monthly fee.
Amazon Instant Video offers unlimited streaming of its Prime Instant Video catalog to members of the Prime service. Non-subscribers can access Amazon's video content by paying a rental or purchase fee per video.
