Check out the top 3 alternatives to MegaShare
MegaShare, was one of the largest video streaming portals for TV shows and movies on the Internet. However, MegaShare abruptly shut down in the year 2014, due to trouble with its video hosting provider.
The shutdown announcement read, “Because there are problems with video hosting company, MEGASHARE is closing and not updating new movies in future. Thank you for your support!”
MegaShare didn’t host any of the videos itself but it depended on files from third-party sites such as Google, Putlocker and Sockshare. It was one of the streaming portals that used Google as video hosting provider.
Back then, Google was criticized for allowing “pirate” movie streaming portals to use its servers to distribute copyrighted material. The search giant was backlashed for not doing enough to prevent pirate sites from showing up in search results. Whether the shutting down of MegaShare was related to the “video hosting troubles” is still unknown.
Since its launch in 2010, MegaShare enjoyed steady growth and operated from .sh and .info domains until its shutdown in 2014. Several clone websites cropped up to take its place. However, recently Google has removed MegaShare and its clones from its search results.
