Best Free Movie Streaming Sites - What to Expect

According to research, the global video streaming market size accounted for $42.6 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow 20.4% from 2020 to 2027. The popularity of movie sites and platforms such as Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video have increased considerably, also attributing to the growth. Moreover, the rapid adoption of mobile phones and growing popularity of social media platforms and other digital mediums for branding and marketing is anticipated to further fuel the growth.

In this article, we'll list the top user-friendly free movie streaming websites where you can stream movies in high definition for an ideal streaming experience. Some of these websites may also be available for download on iOS and Android.

Popcornflix

Popcornflix

Popcornflix offers a huge collection of movies and TV shows with new content added daily. Their service is accessible in a number of countries so you can also stream TV shows while you're traveling. There's a wide array of content, from big studio pictures to independent cinema, documentaries, and sci-fi. Similar to Netflix and HBO, they also offer exclusive content called Popcornflix Originals. When users choose R-rated films, you'll be prompted to enter your birth date. There are also constant popup ads before and in between films. However unlike other similar websites, Popcornflix lacks subtitle settings with the video player only displaying the play button/pause button, volume control, video scrubbing, and a full-screen button.

Pros

  • Optional signup
  • Accessible in multiple countries
  • Includes original content

Cons

  • No subtitle settings
  • Frequent commercial breaks
  • Dated movies and TV catalog

Snagfilms

Snagfilms

With Snagfilms, the variety of films offered is a bit more limited as its database extends mostly into indie movies and documentaries, targeted towards Filmanthropy. The free app also features a good selection of critically acclaimed independent movies and foreign films. You can access Snagfilms on the web, or through its app on your mobile or tablet. Signing up is optional although you will get more perks such as offline viewing, or being able to stop and start viewing at a designated time. Buffering and loading time can be encountered a bit more often than others however if you have the patience, it shouldn't be a big problem.

Pros

  • Optional signup
  • Offline viewing after download
  • Modest commercial breaks

Cons

  • Limited content, focused on indie and foreign films
  • Long buffering time
  • Thin content

Crackle

Crackle

Crackle is one of best websites and a big name in the film industry, owned by Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment and Sony Pictures. The streaming service has one of the best collections for free movies with different genres, from old classics to Hollywood new releases. Although it has been said Crackle seems to put more focus on comedy and action flicks, there is new monthly content that you can check out once they refresh their lineup of TV shows and new movies. Crackle is free in the United States and Australia but it's offered as a subscription service in Latin American and Caribbean countries. Signup isn't mandatory but if you do, you'll be able to save progress on a movie or show or tag shows as favorites to be watched at a later time.

  • Can't skip or click through ads

Tubi TV is well stocked with an array of popular movies and TV shows. Although Tubi TV boasts of an extensive library of free content, the selection you get won't be as curated as others. The service does have key partnerships with Lionsgate, Paramount, MGM, Starz and more so it keeps its listings full. New updates are added each month so it's likely that you'll hit some good stuff once in a while. Compared to a service like Roku, you'll get significantly less popup ads. Another advantage is it's easy to navigate interface with a clean homepage featuring a layout of categories to choose content from.

Pros

  • Broad genre of content with mainstream films
  • Optional signup
  • Short commercial breaks

Cons

  • Somewhat dated content

Pros

  • Offers content from popular networks

Cons

  • Truncated versions of major TV channels

IMDb TV

IMDb TV

The popular website IMDb, has become more than a place to check movie reviews and box office release dates for your local theater. If you’d like to enjoy IMDb TV, you are required to create an account on their website, with an email address, Amazon, Facebook or Google account. However what you get in return is a good selection of movie content that is quite good for a service without any subscription fees. You do get some ads in between movie or TV viewing but it is acceptable for the quality of service you get. The user interface is the surprisingly simple, without any clutter of ads that you'd usually find with free websites.

  • Infrequent commercial breaks
  • Simple, easy to use interface

Vudu hits you with commercials before your content even starts, where if you wanted to test out the first few minutes of a show, you'll be locked in commercial break. However, Vudu offers you a good amount of information (Rotton Tomatoes rating, Vudu user rating, and viewing age suggestion) on the content prior to viewing, which is nice.

When you stream content, you do get occasional ads, however, there are fewer commercials than you'd usually see on cable. All the content is also in full HD quality.

Pros

  • Growing content database
  • No signup or login required
  • Occasional ad breaks

Cons

  • Frequent program crashes
  • No original content
  • No way to skip ads

Kanopy

Kanopy

It's a public domain so anyone can go and rent out a book or movie, but it does mimic how a library works in a way that only one person can borrow an asset at one time.

Pros

  • Ad free
  • Includes ebooks, music, software and more
  • A huge database of content available

Cons

  • Login required
  • Limited selection of movies and shows

The service also provides access to exclusive shows and movies, not found elsewhere, as well as user-generated content. There are free and paid subscription accounts on CONtv, but with a free account, you will see ads while streaming content as well as access to only half of the content. However, CONtv caters to a specific niche of people who love weird, hilarious and terrifying content not found elsewhere, especially if you're a fan of Comicon.

Pros

  • Offers exclusive shows, movies and user generated content
  • Free and paid subscription options
  • Easy to navigate interface

Cons

  • Content caters to niche group
  • Free account only has access to limited amount of content

Since it’s a free-to-users service, don’t expect Hoopla to offer as big a selection as major services like Amazon Prime Video or Netflix. If you're looking for new releases, don't expect to find it in this catalog. Also, you can only check out a certain amount of content each month on Hoopla for 3 weeks at a time.
