As the Internet continues to grow in nature and complexity, more and more people are starting to get their media fix (eg TV, movies, music, videos etc) directly from 'over the top' providers and not from their cable or satellite suppliers. I've written a series of four articles focused on streaming media which are linked below.
This article focuses on the Best Free Streaming Movie sites that you can view. Also, as I review these sites there may be some questions around definition eg what's the difference between a movie site and video site? Well, movie sites are a subset of video sites. For this page, movie sites will focus on movies that are more similar to feature length and typically show in movie theaters. Unfortunately for movies, they are rarely supported by advertising so you'll end up having to fork over a little dough to see these.
- Netflix - requires a subscriptioin, but it's < $10/month for unlimited streaming movies.
- Amazon - my favorite as you get loads of free movies, as long as you have Amazon prime. I imagine this will just increase
- Hulu - nice database
- Apple Itunes - you can download individual movies to your compatible iPhone / iPad
- Blockbuster - offers 24 hour downloadable movies
- Crackle - free movies
- XFinity - offers streaming movies, mainly for people who have subscriptions through their cable service
