I weighed all the pros and cons listed here and at TBP and took the plunge here today. It seems like a decent value but it continues the trend of studios not doing their brand any justice by having a mediocre site.
The biggest sin here, as noted by several reviewers, is that there are a lot of broken links. Exotics4me noted that you can get around that because sometimes the link to a lower resolution file is still there, but my experience is that if one link is bad, the others are too. There are whole DVDs where no scene has an active link. When that occurs a pop-up appears saying that it痴 a dead link with a clickable link to report the problem. But, surprise, surprise, THAT link is broken too. I知 still working on some of the first DVDs posted when the site opened, so I知 hoping to see some improvement as I work my way through the site. But for now, I知 seeing maybe 10% of all links to be dead, which is far more than should be acceptable. Especially since the problem has existed for a long time.
As for speeds, I知 not having any problems there at all.
I値l post a full review once I致e downloaded and viewed more, but it does appear that this is another studio that sees the internet as a second-tier way to get their product to the customer.
I've been disappointed with quite a many studio sites that release ojnly part of the material through the site or just keep a slow steady trickle of updates coming through so that a whole film takes 4-5 updates.
Do these guys release their films at one go and when they come out on DVD/Bluray as well?
Over the past four days or so I have been having serious issues with downloads at the third movies network. At first, the issue was only with downloading the hi-def movies but now it's with every file. I've tried to troubleshoot the problem by disabling my DL manager, using a different web browser, etc. with no luck! Now when I click to DL my browser completely freezes up!
I'm not going to breakout in expletives here, but I am fucking pissed!!! This network has some of the highest quality movies on the net, but what good is it when you can't watch them? Really?
I've submitted several complaints over the last few days with NO response. I would ask for a refund but with the customer support at this site, what chance do I have? Oh well, I paid for a month and got about fifteen days worth of a functioning site.
Is this just an isolated case? Anyone else a member at Third having issues?
As of yesterday downloading HD quality content on the Third Movies network has slowed to a crawl. I'm currently seeing DL speeds of 100-350 kb/s, making the enormous 1GB+ files take well over an hour to complete. Also, it appears DL managers are no longer being supported. However, this slow down does not seem to affect any lesser quality file types as they remain at a speedy 1.8 - 2 mb/s.
Any other members experiencing this?
I submitted my complaint/question to customer support, but for now it's poor quality vids for me....sucks!
Great Site - many of the older issues seem to have been resolved
I would have written a complete review, but the others have covered almost everything, so I'll just add a couple of updates.
DRM - there are still some files that have DRM on them, but of the 100+ scenes I downloaded I only found maybe 5 that still had DRM (mostly in older videos).
DL Speed - I know that there have been a few complaints, but I don't see a problem. My average DL speed is 400kb/sec. That compares very well to Video Box, for example, where I average less than 200kb/sec.
Updates - I've been a member for less than a month, and given the number of movies already on the site it will be a while before I have to worry about that. When I do, I'm sure I'll agree with the people who complain about the lack of regular updates.
Sound issues - no one has mentioned this before, but I've found that the sound isn't in sync with the video on many of the scenes. It isn't off by much, but enough to be annoying.
Over all, this site is well organized and worth the money. Yes, I know that some have complained about the cost, but Third is an excellent studio and it is worth it. Bundled with Zero Tolerance makes it an amazing value. If Third and Zero are to your liking, you can build an impressive collection quickly.
I give full marks to studios like this who make good movies, and then make them available on the net at a reasonable price with no DRM. I only hope that this business model continues to get picked up by other studios.
