Movies, Movies, Stream, MeMovies or movieshub was a network of file streaming websites operating from Vietnam which allowed users to watch movies for free. It was called the world's "most popular illegal site" by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) in March 2018, before being shut down a few weeks later on foot of a criminal investigation by the Vietnamese authorities. As of February 2019, the network is still active via clone sites.
The site went through several name changes after being shut down from different domains; sometimes the name appeared as "Movies", and other times as "movies". The original name, and URL, was movies.to, which changed to other domains including movies.is before redirecting to movies.to and later movies.is. It was changed to stream.is before being moved briefly to memovies.to before changing to movieshub.to/is and remaining there until shutdown.watch free
