In another article, we talked about paid alternatives to Netflix, the king of video streaming services. Here’s a list of alternative services for those who like me, don’t want to spend money to watch their movies and TV shows:
This platform is like Netflix but for free. It has a solid selection of movies and TV shows from various genres.
You won’t find as many new releases as compared to Netflix but there’s plenty of other titles you won’t find on Netflix.
You can watch movies and TV shows from Popcornflix online through your laptop or computer at Popcornflix.com.
Owned by Sony, Crackle offers quite a wide selection of movies and TV shows, although not quite as many as Netflix. You will find titles from a range of genres, all available for free
You can watch indie films, blockbuster movies and a wide variety of TV shows, so there’s something for everyone on the platform.
You could try searching for full-length movies on YouTube. There are plenty of movies you will find there
Just search the title of the film you want, followed by the term “full movie” and see if it comes up.
You won’t always find what you’re searching for, but it’s worth taking a look. This is especially true for new releases.
Alternatively, you can type in the term “full movies” into the search bar, hit enter and then scroll down the page and you’ll see tons of free full movies.
Tubi TV is a streaming platform, like Netflix, which allows you to watch a variety of movies and TV shows on demand. It’s completely free and you will find all popular titles spanning across multiple genres.
On SnagFilms, you’ll find more than 5,000 titles, including movies, TV shows, and documentaries.
It mainly focuses on independent movies, so if you’re a fan of those types of films, you’ll enjoy this platform. Their collection of movies is much smaller. Mainstream movies are not available. You will find a bunch of content you won’t find on Netflix.
Vimeo is a video-sharing platform. It’s primarily an alternative to YouTube. You can search for movies in a similar fashion as YouTube
You will find movies, TV series and shorts from independent film-makers. There is a bunch of original content on this platform which compensates for the dearth of blockbuster content.
My Thoughts on Netflix
I have been a Netflix user for some time now. There are alternatives to it but I still feel it’s worth the price. That said, I do use other video streaming services that complement Netflix for wholesome entertainment.
