Download 'Terminator Salvation' for free (legally)
Okay, so most people thought the movie sucked. It's still something for nothing. You do, however, have to jump through a few account-setup hoops to get it.
I've always been a fan of the "Terminator" movies, even the much-maligned third one. But having wasted considerable hours on the generally awful "Terminator" TV series, I never bothered to go see "Terminator Salvation." Just figured I'd rent it someday.
Well, I'm glad I waited. CinemaNow and Divx are offering the movie absolutely free. After downloading it, you can play it on your PC, burn it to a DVD, or watch it on any Divx-certified device (like a PlayStation 3).
To get your freebie, follow these steps:
- Head to the "Termination Salvation" promo page.
- Enter coupon code TS201023 and click Next.
- Create a CinemaNow account if don't already have one, or sign in if you do.
- Install the Divx player if you haven't already done so, otherwise click Download to start.
The download will actually take place within the Divx player, which requires you to have a Divx account (also free). So, yeah, there's a bit of hoop-jumping here, but in the end you get a free download of a movie that would otherwise cost you $19.95.
Mine is downloading as we speak. It's pretty slow going, but I can verify that the coupon works. Also, you can start watching before the download is done; on my system, playback kicked in at around the 7-percent mark.
By the way, this qualifies as a "download to own" title, not a rental, so you can view it as many times as you want.
