The reason I started researching this website is because I was tricked into clicking on the following advertisement:
A Flash Player Update is Required to View this Content

Clicking on the advertisement took me to the website www.cinechest.com.
The advertisement had nothing with do with the upgrading of my Flash Player, but was a deceptive move by Cinechest to get me to visit their website.
Some of the Many Complaints made by Unsatisfied Customers of cinechest.com:
- "please do not sign up for this, such a scam, only very old movies and hidden charges to your credit card. very dissatisfied!!!!!! then they charged me $1 to cancel my supposedly "free" account which I only needed a credit card to confirm my identity!! I will be spreading the word of this sham."
- "Very expensive and only old films: They said that I signed in with my credit card only to ensure my identity. That was in the sign up process. Then when I got in the ovies was very old and I really just wanted to get out and cancel my memebership. After only a few days they charged me 3 times the amount that Netflix costs in my Country! When I visited the website I still couldn't find my account to close it down. Then after searching carefully I found the account and I closed it down.in the signing up there should be a warning that "ok, we use your credit card to establish your identity and after 5 days we charge you for the next month" and then when you get the "welcome" mail there should be an unsubscribe link. All in all just a hoax to make money!!"
- "CineChest.com give a 5 days trial to test the service but never talk about the fee after trail finishes. They charge automatically $49.99!!! I never saw a movie because all of them are really old maybe because they don't pay copyrights for them. Stay away!"
- "When I signed up at cinechest.com, there was no disclosure that the membership is free for 5 days only. First, I was charged $1.05 CAD which I consented to based on their advertisement that it is a one time charge for unlimited download and then there was NO indication that there will be a recurring charge. I looked at my visa statement and I was charged $51.63 within 5-day period. What a scam!!! I phone the customer support for a cancellation. I was given a Cancellation Reference#: 1633995. When I asked if I can have this confirmed by email so that I can have traceability, the customer service refused indicating it's not their standard practice to email customer. This is yet another indication of what a scam this is."
Based on these complaints and personal experience with this website, I would not recommend signing up or registering for this service.
