You will hardly find a person that dislikes watching movies. True, the tastes may differ significantly, but who doesn’t like to relax in front of the screen for a couple of hours and snack on popcorn (or any other guilty pleasure) without a worry in the world? If you’re an avid cinema goer, then you’re painfully aware that going to movie projections is all but cheap, which is why many of us choose to wait it out until a watchable version of the movie shows up online.
However, finding movies to watch online and if at all possible for free is proving to be a daunting task as internet restrictions are becoming worse. Thankfully, there are still places you can go and watch movies online and we will mention some of them here today. We’ll say from the very beginning that you will have to pay to play for some services, but some of them are free and at your disposal.
Ok, we’ll start with a well-known platform that has made many lives better over time thanks to the library of movies and series it offers to all its users, both those who are having a free ride and those who pay for premium membership. The main difference between paying and not paying for the movies you want to watch is how long you’ll have to wait for them. It’s very easy to use Hulu, all you need to do is create an account and watch away. If you want to watch series on this platform, prepare your nerves for one-week wait until the latest episode is available, unless you’re a Hulu Plus user, in which case, you will have access to everything practically as soon as it’s out.
2. Can I Stream It
Can I Stream It is a “scanning” service that allows you to easily search across various platforms for movies that you want to watch, it’s not a streaming website per say. This service covers all the big names of streaming, including Hulu, Amazon sites and pretty much everything else that comes to mind. This method really makes it easy for you to find what you’re looking for and enables you to skip the part where you google the hell out of a movie title until you’ve found a suitable version of it. However, Can I Stream It will give you all the options for certain movies, even when you have to pay to watch, so don’t be too disappointed when you see this. Also, if the movie you’re looking for still isn’t out, you can set an alert and an email will be sent to you as the movie appears.
3. BBC iPlayer
This method for finding movies online is one of the favorite ones for millions of people. Crackle has made its duty to give its users everything they’re asking for, so you can pretty much find anything here, as long as your timing is right. Unlike other streaming platforms, Crackle circulates the movies, so not all titles are always available, but the most popular ones pop up frequently. Many of these movies are available for free, which is another great perk that sets Crackle apart from hundreds of other platforms and even the most popular movies are available here, so feel free to give it a shot.
They’ve got around 2,000 movies at your disposal – does that say enough? Popcornflix is one of the rare websites that doesn’t require you having an account on it to watch whatever they have to offer, which is great news for your privacy. We like that they’re constantly working on adding new movies from different genres, so you’ve got a plenty of them to choose from, be it horror, drama, comedy, documentary and anything in between. Basically, all you have to do is go to Popcornflix, find what you want to watch, press play, take your popcorn and you’re all set.
Watching movies online is really not that accessible anymore and using any of these platforms and methods to find what you want to watch will definitely make your life easier. All of these methods are legal, so you don’t have to worry about that aspect either, all you have to do is find your “poison” and enjoy. – Thomas Milva
