  • When you got Kaspersky Anti-Virus or Kaspersky Internet Security then even redtube is perfectly safe.

    This part kind of confuses me: "How dangerous is it to download TV shows from sites like this onto your computer to view when you don't have internet access?"

    -if you have no internet access then you couldn't even open Google, yet to stream TV shows...

    • I mean download while you have internet in order to watch when you leave the internet.

    • Streaming is the same as downloading, the only difference is that your browser doesn't notify you about it and automatically deletes that file once you close the website.

      When it comes to safety there's no difference, as I said - get a good anti-virus and you'll forget about such kind of issues.

  • Of course it is completely safe to download tv shows form the Internet provided you use only safe and trusted websites. I'd like to recommend you http://tvstock.net I always download episodes there and have never had any issues.

  • It's relatively safe...and if you have a virus program it'll let you know if there's a virus in it. However, you probably shouldn't download it to your computer, as it will eat up your memory; get an external hard drive (the bigger the external drive, the more you'll pay)

    • Yeah, hard drives today are SO small that there totally are no place for TV shows...

    • Thanks!

  • I'd suggest trying Netflix or Hulu. TV shows are probably the worst thing to download as far as viruses are concerned. It doesn't matter where you go.

    • I'm sure those might be better options, but the point here is that I want to be able to download stuff and keep it on my computer for a time when I don't have internet access. Does Netflix allow you to do that?
