Chill with Netflix!

But how can one chill when you have to pay to do so. I know that it has a wide range of movies, shows, and documentaries that you can watch without going through the trouble of downloading them. But imagine doing the same free of cost. Yes. You read that right. Which means all you have to pay for is your monthly Internet subscription. And if you have subscribed to Spectrum Internet like me, that won’t cost you much either. And who doesn’t like to save money? Well if you are the one spending it, you’d definitely want to save every cent that you can.

As I am always looking for free services wherever possible, I bring you some of the best (according to me) websites to stream movies online.

Sony Crackle

Owned by Sony Pictures, this website ought to be the best among the free ones. The likable things about this website include:

  • A buffet of films to choose from
  • Good (not just acceptable) video quality
  • The mobile app works great
  • So many video player options to choose from

The array of full-length movies that Crackle has to offer to include the blockbusters. And they are movies with stars you most certainly know about. You know the big names? Of course, you know them. And the high-quality at which these movies are available on this website to make them watchable on almost all screen sizes that you wish to. However, there is one flaw. A rather irritable one. And that is that the website displays a lot of ads in between the movies. It is more than any other movie streaming website. But I guess, you have to make a compromise on something.

Popcornflix

Another great website to satisfy your movie streaming needs is Popcornflix. The website is constantly being updated with the latest movies via Screen Media Ventures. Which means that you can never run out of options to watch a movie. In fact, the website has over 1,500 movies that include

  • Action
  • Horror
  • Romance
  • Drama
  • Family
  • Documentaries.

That’s a huge variety to choose from. And the best part about this website is that all the movies play in a large video player. An even better part and the ones that millennials will love is that the website allows you to make GIFs from the scenes. You can even make comments on parts of the movies which will be pinned. However, there are a couple of downsides as well. The first one being that there is no option for subtitles. And the second one is that video quality needs a bit of improvement. Apart from that, it is a great website.

Yidio

This is a website that further has several categories that direct you where you can watch movies. One of these categories is designed for the sole purpose of viewing free online movies. A bit unconventional but it is a great site. The best parts about this site include:

  • Makes it easy for you to find free movies on various websites
  • You can filter films based on the genre and MPAA rating
  • You can sort movies according to their popularity
  • You can view the rotten tomatoes scores of movies

Some cons of using this website are that the movies are of DVD quality. Apart from that, there are many advertisements in between movies.

SnagFilms

Although a bit newer than the websites mentioned above it is a favorite among online movie streamers. It has over 10,000 movies from which you can choose. And you get the option to choose according to the genre, most viewed, most popular and newly added. One of the best things about this website is the huge collection of movies that it has. Apart from that, the movies are grouped into unique collections. And the best part yet is the minimal ads that the website shows. However, the site does not display subtitles. And at times you might have to wait as the video might buffer when you fast forward.

Tubi

This website gives you access to thousands of movies and shows for free. Although, you might have to rent them. But the majority of them are free. Moreover, you can choose from an array of genres. In fact, it even has a ‘not on Netflix’ section. Wow! However, unlike Netflix, it plays a lot of ads throughout the movie.

The list does not exhaust here. But these are my all time favorite options to choose from when in the mood to watch a movie online for free. Good for me that my house comes under the Spectrum customer Service. Because the cable provider itself has an array of movies to show. At all times. So, in case the Internet’s posing an issue, I can always rely on the movie library that the company has.
