I prefer to download episodes in full rather than streaming. Better quality and less hastle.
I use two methods:
From Sharethefiles.com using eMule ed2k links
Sharethefiles is grand, no popups, no viruses, no messing, but eMule can be difficult to setup, opening ports and setting up the online servers. Be sure to download it from eMule-project.net nowhere else. eMule can be searched in it’s own right, but stick to links from sharethefiles for genuine downloads.
From Thepiratebay using bittorent links
Anything I can’t get on eMule I then try brave The Pirate Bay. It keeps getting blocked so search “the pirate bay proxy” and you’ll get a list of current servers. The site itself is full of popups and viruses so you’ll need a good firewall and popup blocker and antivirus. They have something going on now where they can hijack your cpu to generate bitcoin (don’t ask), so be carefull. Bittorrent is easier setup than eMule. No messing with ports and servers.It just seems to run from startup but is full of every kind of add.
There are plenty of others sites, but a great site for educational, documentaries and Natural History is MVGroup.org, it has both emule and torrent links. Top quality site. If you need any help just ask.
