At the risk of derailing the thread,I don't see what's wrong legally with downloading free streamed stuff, so long as you don't intend to sell it or rent it out to someone or whatever. Given that you have to go to the site to download the things anyway, they're still getting the hit counters to please the ad guys, and you get to watch the things whenever you want.
So long as the thing is going to stay online for the time it takes you to watch (and delete) it on your HDD, I see no issue.
