We live in a world with an embarrassment of riches when it comes to


channels, but subscribing to Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, HBO Max, Amazon Prime and a half-dozen others can be as pricey as an old-fashioned cable subscription — or worse. The antidote to endless streaming subscriptions are free movies online. Here are seven of the best options for watching movies for free.

The Roku Channel

Roku offers a mix of contemporary and classic films for free.

Roku isn’t just an excellent streaming media device; the company also has a free streaming channel that you can access from any Roku device or the web. Here you’ll find an impressive array of TV shows and feature films you can stream for free. The selection isn’t enormous, but there’s a mix of classic and contemporary movies (“Driving Miss Daisy” to “Syriana”) to choose from. There’s no need to create an account (though you can if you want to) and ads, while present, are not overly intrusive. 


You might be surprised to learn that YouTube has a sizable collection of free films.

YouTube belongs on this list because in addition to being the place you go for cute cat videos and the clip from last night’s late night talk show, YouTube offers hundreds of free movies, making it a convenient one-stop shop. Also, YouTube is one of the few sites where the content is rated by users and you can read  comments about the movies as you watch them. You don’t have to randomly search for free stuff; YouTube has arranged all the free movies in a single category. 


You can purchase and rent movies at Vudu, but the service also induces you to visit with thousands of free movies.

Dave Johnson

Vudu is the streaming video arm of Fandango and offers both free and paid videos. It’s easy to find the free content thanks to a Free link at the top of the page, and there you’ll find thousands of movies, both new and old, popular films, and schlock. The site also does a good job of sorting the movies into categories (like Most Watched, Big Time Movie Stars, Family and Dramas) for easy browsing.
