Zune Downloads | Downloading Free Music & Movies

By: Davion W

Perhaps you just bought a brand new Zune player and want to find a place where you can get unlimited Zune downloads for your new player. The trouble is many of the paid sites offer downloads at $0.99 per music download. It costs even more if you wish to download movies for your player. You may have contemplated downloading music, movies and videos at some of the free online services that provide you unlimited Zune downloads. Sounds attractive but should you?

While the idea of getting free music, movies, videos and games sound great, it is hardly an affair to applaud about. Here are some risk factors you need to consider carefully if you want the free zune music downloads, movies and other entertainment media offered at the free resources.

1. Exposure to Harmful Software

Did you know that you are exposing your computer to harmful software applications like adware, spyware, Trojans, worms and the like when you download them together with the Zune music and movies you found at the free resources? It was never your intention I am sure but it does happen. What results is a loss in computer processing speeds, and data. The same can happen to your Zune media player.

In the worst case scenario, some of the adware and spyware are revealing your private information such as your surf history, important passwords and so on to the software client. Other users have complained that it was impossible to delete the malware

2. Download Speeds

Let us face it. Free sites cannot spend resources to maintain the entire network. Whenever many users get online to download Zune media files, they consume tons of bandwidth especially if they are movies or videos. In order to limit that, these free resources would cap the speed of downloads. This brings everything to a crawl and it takes ages to download. So much for free unlimited Zune downloads.

3. Incomplete or Corrupted Downloads

What if you spend one full hour downloading the latest movie for your Zune, and when you think you are done, you get an error message that the file is either incomplete or corrupted? That is going to be such a huge disappointment especially if it is a nice weekend evening when you are all set to watch the latest Fantastic 4 - Silver Surfer. Even songs can be corrupted. You would never imagine downloading Gimme More by Britney Spears only to find out it is corrupted and doesn't play on your Zune.

These are the risks you got to take when downloading free movies, music, videos and games at the free sites. They "look" free but seriously, on second thoughts, you may not think so anymore. Why not pop over to my Zune blog and download some of your favourite songs and music at affordable paid membership sites for unlimited Zune downloads? It does not even cost you more than $40 for a lifetime membership.
