We like watching movies and TV shows, right? And we really love them if they are free. On the other hand, Apple products are famous for their price and free streaming is exactly what you need after you get paid for the hardware.
1. Tubi TV
Tubi TV is a direct application. I mean it doesn’t simulate TV channels, so you just scroll. Before scrolling, you first select a category. And app makers have come up with some real smart categories here like “Not on Netflix” and “Highly Rated on Rotten Tomatoes”.
This is really interesting when streaming services don’t pretend to not know about Netflix. You can get the latest Lionsgate and MGM content here. However, variations in content are still far behind paid services. Where Tubi does not feel limited in categories such as “Cult Favorites”, documentaries, foreign and indie films.
You cheer after you get the real movie because there is almost no buffer or loading. Content does not always have the highest resolution but it is never too low. One thing that disturbs a pleasant user experience is that you can’t miss it.
+ no traffic
+ enough content with adequate quality
– and * n ads cannot be ignored (DARNS)
Easy navigation here, explore whatever you want. Crackle supports streaming to any size screen. It can run for days without any problems at all. This ad-supported collection of films is more likely to have films than in the past few decades. Newer films are usually available for a certain period of time and then expire. You should check into Crackle often if you don’t want to miss. Crackle also has original shows and films, including Comedy Seinfeld at Cars Getting Coffee. TV shows include Seinfeld, Married with Children, Dilbert, All in the Family, and The Larry Sanders Show. There are regular commercial breaks during the film, which is an exchange for free content. But the advertising train is shorter than what you see on TV networks.
+ fresh content
+ subtitle settings
– DARNS (but Viagra ads are very fun!)
Popcornflix is another application without buffering for you. Also, all categories, such as Comedy, Action, Thriller, Drama, Rockstars, Before They are Famous, Family / Children, TV Series, Horror, Wild West, and Documentaries are available here.
The New Arrivals category makes users hope that the latest films will come. Video quality is mostly the same as what you find on DVD, but sometimes it is better and that is certainly enough because modern TVs have an upgrade option. Full screen button makes all distractions disappear. It’s easier to deal with advertisements here because usually the movie trailer is shown before your film as it would in a real cinema.
+ film in Spanish
– mostly DVD quality resolutions
4. Show Box & TV Movie Hub Cinema
Another great free platform for watching movies on Apple TV. One of the best features is that all films are presented in the original language too – so that it can be used not only by English speakers. Movie variations are more than decent, starting from Hollywood blockbusters ending with classic films.
In addition, Show Box includes not only movies, but also the most popular TV shows. Another interesting feature of that is that it includes the upcoming movie trailers. Each film has a detailed description.
– Not found
If you are obsessed with Korean drama, this is the time. Viki offers a variety of TV shows and films from Korea, China, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand.
Some popular shows are translated into 150 languages, you can also change subs. TV series from the US include classic films such as The Lucy Show, The Beverly Hillbillies, Ozzie and Harriet, Popeye, Felix the Cat, Casper the Friendly Ghost, The Lone Ranger, and The Adventures of Robin Hood.
+ the comment feature is fun.
6. Pluto TV
This application simulates cable TV services. In other words, it has a watch guide with channels, with special streaming programs at certain times. The viewing guide is still organized into categories. The application is as good as the others.
