The best sites to watch free movies online

Now that the UK’s broadband users have got used to superfast upload and download speeds, many are trying to use the internet for a bit more than looking up answers to queries and answering Emails. Watching TV online thanks to on demand services like Demand 5 and 4oD is something everyone does but if you want to watch films, where can you find sites to watch free movies online?

Can I Stream It

Before you part with cash and take up a Netflix subscription, why not take a look at Can I Stream It? The site’s basically a portal that directs you to well-known streaming and rental websites. You have to be careful because not every site it checks offers free films but canistream.it is an easy site to access and it has cool features like its Email service which messages you when a movie becomes available.

Classic Cinema Online

If you like older movies then classiccinemaonline.com is the place to go. You’ll find a collection of black and white classics here so if that’s your thing, grab some popcorn and turn the lights down.


Crackle offers a great selection of recent films but it majors on movies made by Sony. That’s hardly surprising given that crackle.com is owned by the Japanese firm. There are time limits attached to some of the movies so make sure you watch the ones you like the look of before the expiration dates.

Popcorn Flix

You’ll find a wide collection of indies movies atpopcornflix.com. Unfortunately there are adverts within the movies but since you’re not being asked for any money, how can anyone complain?

Amazon Prime Instant Video

You can also get free movies on Amazon Prime Instant Video but you’ll have to start their free 30 day trial and then cancel before your first chargeable month.
