- Now, you need to find a reliable torrent website. Here are our suggestions when it comes to the best torrent sites. In case you’d like to be sure that you’re on the safe side of the law, check out legal torrent repositories. For the sake of giving you an example, we will use ThePirateBay.org, which is perhaps the biggest torrent repository on the Web;
- Once you open The Pirate Bay in your Web browser, you will get to see a prominent search bar. You can use it to find a specific movie, or you can click on ‘Movies’ to browse the category on your own;
- No matter which route you go, The Pirate Bay will display a long list of results. Please note that torrents at the top of this list are usually the ‘healthiest’ which means that you’ll download them faster than the others. This is because these torrents have more seeders than leechers;
- Once you find the torrent file, go ahead and click on it. The Pirate Bay will show a nice overview;
- To download the torrent file, click on ‘Get This Torrent.’ If the link doesn’t work, you can right-click on it and open it in a new tab. The movie torrent file will now download to your device.
- You can double-click on the torrent file to open it in uTorrent;
- Alternatively, you can open uTorrent and then go to File > Add Torrent. A pop-up will appear that you need to use to find the locally stored torrent file;
- Depending on your uTorrent settings, you might be asked where you want to save the files once they are downloaded. If you don’t see this pop-up, uTorrent will download them to its default location (usually in the Downloads folder);
- That’s it. uTorrent will now download the files on its own by connecting to seeders. In the meantime, others will be able to take bits of data from your computer.
So, that’s how you download movies using uTorrent. Once the download is done, it’s advisable to keep uTorrent active for a while. This means that you’ll be seeding the torrent file and helping other torrent users to download them.
