Watch 2015 Oscar Nominated Movies Free With 1Channel

2015-Academy-Award-MoviesCongratulations 2015 Academy Award Nominees! The 87th Academy Awards will take place on February 22nd, 2015 on ABC. This gives you plenty of time to watch all of the Best Picture Nominated films this year before the big awards are given out. Luckily it’s award season which means DVD Screeners are sent out to all of the members and voters of the various award shows. Inevitably the screeners get leaked online which makes it incredibly easy to watch every movie from the comfort of your couch, absolutely free!

This year the nominated movies include American Sniper, The Imitation Game, Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), Boyhood, Selma, The Theory of Everything, Whiplash and The Grand Budapest Hotel. You can watch every single one of them with Kodi and the add-on 1Channel.

Install Kodi (Formerly XBMC) Onto Your Device

The first step is making sure you have Kodi installed on your AppleTV or computer. If you don’t have Kodi installed, follow the post here on How To Install Kodi or XBMC on Your Mac or PC. If you already setup continue to the steps below for adding 1Channel.

Step 1: Download the 1Channel add-on here and save it to your Desktop. This is a zip file that needs to remain zipped in order to install it on Kodi. Do not unzip it, it won’t work.

Step 2: Assuming you have Kodi opened, navigate to System>Settings>Add-Ons>Install from zip file

Step 3: Once you select Install from zip file, a file browser will open on the right side of your window. Navigate to where you saved the .zip file you downloaded earlier and select it, click OK. Wait a few seconds and you’ll see confirmation in the lower right hand corner of your Kodi window once it’s installed and enabled.


Step 4: Click the Home icon in the lower right hand corner of the window. Now navigate to Video>Add-Ons>1Channel

Step 5: You are now inside the awesome 1Channel plugin! There’s plenty of content to search through, but let me show you the easiest way to find the newest released movies. Click on Movies then go down to where it says Featured. This is where you will find the hottest movies listed in chronological order of the day they were released online. Select the movie you want to watch, a set of links will appear and you can choose a link. Sometimes links don’t work, or the copy may not be as good as you want. That’s ok, just go to another link until you find the best one. Believe me, there’s always a PERFECT copy online, it just takes a few minutes to get the right one.

 2015 Academy Award Movies Free on 1Channel

So there you have it, the simplest, easiest way to watch all of the 2015 Oscar nominated motion pictures in the comfort of your own living room, absolutely free. Some tips to help you out are to pay attention to the names of the links you use. I find some of them to be super-reliable all of the time, so I try those first. HugeFiles and MovShare are a couple of my favorites. Also, look in the title for descriptions of the quality of the movie. If you see CAM, you’ll know it’s a movie recorded by someone in the theatre with a camcorder. If it says DVD or SCREENERS, it’s a DVD rip, 720p or Bray Rip are Blu-ray rips and 1080p are blu-ray rips at higher resolution.
