Binge watching is just a way of life these days, but all the different streaming services and their subscription costs can pile up enormously and create a pile of bills that no one can watch.
If you want to increase your entertainment resources without hurting your wallet, then the idea of a free streaming service sounds too good to be true. However, that’s not the case, there are plenty of free streaming services that are completely legal. The real downside is that most of these have ads. But beggars can’t be voters and all that.
These are the best places to watch movies and TV shows completely free.
IMDb might be the place to go if you’re trying to figure out why you recognize an actor in the movie you’re watching, but IMDb can also be your go-to for free streaming. The site is essentially a free offshoot of Amazon Prime with select TV shows and movies available for free.
You guessed it though – you’ll have to be patient and fix some ad breaks. (Although we won’t tell anyone if you download an adblocker.)
IMDbTV has a great selection of popular titles, so we definitely recommend that you browse the site. Some notable titles include John Tucker must die The Grand Budapest Hotel, and The maze runner
We will acknowledge Crackle’s site looks like a bit sketchy, but it’s a completely legit Sony site with select TV shows and movies that the production company has produced over the years. There is a lot of niche content, but there are also popular titles such as Charlie’s Angels Keanu, and The other guys
However, if you want to get around Crackle’s ads with an ad blocker, you have something else. The videos will not play unless you turn it off, so you will be forced to watch commercials.
Pluto TV is a great place to watch movies and TV shows – especially popular older content from Ignorant The King’s Speech to Leverage 90210There is a wide variety of genres and what’s even better is that Pluto TV has a number of live channels that you can watch too. Finding a free live stream service is like finding a unicorn in the woods, so this site is definitely worth bookmarking.
Wondering what the caveat is? This site is not the one you visit if you have something specific in mind – there is no search function. Pluto TV is best if you are unsure of what to watch and are willing to go through the options.
Before you scroll away from this suggestion for not paying for Roku – hold on. You can head over to the Roku Channel site whether you have a subscription to their service or not and choose from their library of shows and movies. Some of the more impressive titles include Merlin 24 White board Donnie Darko and Xena Warrior Princess
It’s worth bearing in mind that if you believe in watching TV shows from start to finish and in chronological order, this site might drive you a little crazy. Some of the shows they’ve listed feature alone some of the seasons and they are not always the first.
Our final recommendation for free TV and movie streaming. The site offers tons of options – and even better, it’s completely ad-free. We honestly don’t know how this site works, but you don’t need to create an account either.
There really doesn’t seem to be any strings attached to using Tubi, but you will have to accept that much of what is offered on the site is a bit older or not very popular. However, there are some nice options for movie night. From Spy Kids Stuart Little to American bustle Mortdecai there is probably something for everyone.
