Online Video Streaming Services That Are Free To Use

August 17, 2018

While Netflix, Hulu and Amazon offer hundreds of on demand movies and TV shows, the monthly fees can add up and believe it or not, there are many TV streaming services that are free to watch on your Roku, Fire stick and Apple TV. Pluto TV is a free streaming service that offers live channels, TV shows and movies. Surprisingly they’re some recent movies like Shutter Island and True Grit on the service. An added bonus is if you have a Vizio TV with SmartCast, you can enjoy "Watch Free Wednesday" with about 100 free, ad-supported channels. While those who have Roku know you can watch free shows and movies via The Roku Channel that broadcasts free, ad-supported streaming channel.  But now you can enjoy the service on your computer without a Roku and soon the company is launching an app you can use on your Samsung Smart TV. Crackle has been offering free movies for quite some time and as long as you don't mind a few ads spliced in between your movie, they offer the Sony Entertainment library of movies.  Crackle has also began to develop it own content too.  VuDu is the Walmart supported platform where you can buy or rent movies and TV shows but the service recently expanded its free, ad-supported content lineup to include more movies and full seasons of TV programs, which you can find under the “Vudu: Free Movies & TV” page.
