It offers pirated movies, and apps of that sort usually have a short lifespan and/or extremely slow downloads. StreamKing used to be a good one, but it only lasted for about a year before it stopped working. MovieBox downloads were so slow it that it was worthless for most. You're better off just torrenting if you want content like that.

Sounds like they had to pull the plug on their servers. It's not surprising considering the content they offered.

I been a member with bigU since 2008 and never had any problems. In July they were updating their servers but now everything works great. I just downloaded Captain Phillips, Gravity, 2 Gun and Dvd of Man of Steel.

If you get a chance, go see Gravity on the big screen in 3D. I can't think of any other movie that will lose more (in terms of the spectacular visual effects) than that one when you compare it to the big screen 3D experience. And it will be even worse when it's a low quality cam torrent that was re-uploaded to bigU, which is likely what you just downloaded.

Yeah that be nice if I could afford to pay $14 to see it. The r5 copy looks almost like dvd copy to me.

I don't know about you but I'm using LTE network and I'm getting download speeds if 3.2 MB per sec. 900 MB movie only takes me ab 4 mins to download.

Sorry my friend but bigU has a new app and you may have the old one. And you might to clean out your browser cookies or something if you don't see the updates. And it still is the best movie source out there.

All I seeing is cams. Frequently they label them as higher quality than they really are. But even if it's an r5, it's still lower quality than a regular DVD and it's compressed quite a bit. My point was that I don't think this particular movie will be anywhere near as good even on a store-bought Blu-Ray and a 60" TV. But yeah, not everyone can afford the ticket.
