We live in an age in which millions of people want access to free videos and movies. We have compiled a list of the best free movie streaming sites and apps that are completely legal.
Usually, the mention of free movie downloads and streaming comes with the connotation that the service is illegal or a pirate operation. And there is valid reason for that. There are hordes of free movie web sites whose contents are being offered illegally.
However, it might surprise you to find out that there are sites that offer movies, series and other video content for free without violating the intellectual property rights of the creators.
Come along with us so we can introduce you to five of them.
The Best Free Movie Streaming Sites and Apps
Below are five web sites that we consider the best when it comes to free movies.
You already know YouTube. It is a great place for finding short films and documentaries. As a matter of fact, YouTube is so versatile that some of the other free movie streaming sites pull content from it.
It has a mobile app and a mobile-friendly website.
Crackle is a subsidiary of Sony Pictures and provides ad-supported movies and videos.
When we visited the website, we got a message saying the service is not available in our region. Bummer.
If you are in a favoured location, or if you have access to a solid VPN service, streaming movies and shows on Crackle shouldn’t pose a problem.
It is good to see Sony offer free movie content as part of its fight against online video piracy. An effort like this should not be inavailable to any regions though. If available info is anything to go by, many online users downloading and streaming movies from illegal download sites are from the very regions that Sony Crackle has barred.
SnagFilms is one of those free movie streaming sites that are ad-supported. It provides independent films, documentaries, and short films. This website has lots of content covering history, politics, military, economy, culture, psychology, philosophy, and inspirational feats by people from all walks of life.
This is a movie streaming site for the more intellectual individual.
Stremio offers movies, TV series, as well as TV channels. It also offers Web channels and YouTube content. It is one of the best free movie streaming sites that has a mobile app. Loading the Stremio site on an Android phone, it immediately provides a link to download the app from Google Play Store.
Of course, you can opt not to download the app and instead use the mobile site. Not everybody wants to install another app on their already crammed smartphones.
Stremio say they have all the video content you can watch in one place. While that may not be 100% true (we doubt that they have all the movies you can watch), Stremio is one of the best free movie streaming services available.
5. Free Movies Cinema
The Free Movies Cinema web site provides access to all sorts of movies, including action, thriller, animation, horror, adventure, short films, fan films, classic movies, and Tv series.
FMC pulls some contemt from YouTube. You can watch movies without having to register and login, though the login favility is available on the site.
Perhaps this applies to videos pulled from YouTube.
100% Legal Free Movie Streaming
The above are the best 5 free movie streaming sites with 100% legal content we have seen. They all work on desktop browsers and mobile phone browsers. As such, you can stream videos regardless of what device you are browsing with.
Some of them also have a mobile app, which provides a better user experience.
Lastly, these streaming sites are legal alternatives to sites like FilMyWap, 0123, and others.
