Best Free Online Streaming Services for 2021

Okay, free streaming services!

Of course, you won’t find the catalog as good as Netflix and Hulu, but you will be surprised how far they have come in recent days.

In this video, we'll share our favorite free streaming services, that not only have new movies and TV shows but are also 100% legal and work on all platforms.

For example, you can watch movies and TV shows such as - How to Train Your Dragon, Schitt’s Creek, Bachelorette and much more.

And the best part is, these free streaming services don't require any credit card, registrations and they even support multiple platforms include computer, Android, iOS and Android TV etc.

The only caveat is, you have to watch few ads here and there, though the number of ads can be lower than traditional cable.

Also, some of these free streaming service is only available in the US, but if you are living outside of the US, you can use the Smart DNS Proxy VPN.

Let’s get started, shall we?


The first free movie streaming app in the list is IMDb TV.

IMDb TV was launched couple of years ago and lets you watch free movies and TV shows, as you all know. But there are couple of new updates.

While IMDb TV doesn’t have the biggest selection of titles like Netflix and Disney+, it does have new and highly rated movies that tend only to be seen on paid-for streaming services.

For example, big names like How to Train Your Dragon, Schitt’s Creek, Lost, 24, Mad Men, The Big Lebowski are present.

And the best part is, these are not only free, but the ads are also non-intrusive. For example, while watching Captain Phillips, there were only 2 ads in it. Although, this could change as the service become more popular.

As of now, IMDb TV is only in the United States but you can use SDP VPN to change your location and it works fine.

Do check out IMDb TV.

The Roku Channel

Moving on to The Roku Channel.

The Roku Channel is an app for watching free movies and TV shows that is attached to the popular Roku streaming devices.

Now, we know what you are thinking. Can you watch the Roku Channel without a Roku device? You absolutely can.

You can watch The Roku Channel without access to a Roku device, but that may require signing up for a Roku account.

Simply, open the Roku Channel in any web browser or their official app. This gives you access to a broad selection of TV programs and movies.

Moreover, you can open the Roku Channel's Live TV page in any web browser. More than 20 live TV channels can be found on the service. This page is dedicated to Roku's lineup of live TV, which includes news, sports, and other programming.

Peacock TV

Okay so Peacock TV - how's that in this list? Isn't it paid?

Well, yes, Peacock TV has a paid tier, too, which unlocks even more features. But even without paying anything, you watch free ad-supported version.

Although, there's a difference between Peacock free and paid. Below, you can find a full cost breakdown of Peacock’s three membership tiers.

Peacock TV Free: The free, ad-supported plan allows users to access 13,000 hours of content.

For $5 a month, you can upgrade to unlock those other seasons, movie series installments, and other premium selections. For $10 a month, you can watch it all without ads. But the free plan has plenty to keep you entertained until you hit that wall.

In simple words, Peacock TV free tier will give you the first two seasons of The Office, the first three Harry Potter movies, for free. The point is that the selection is really, really good. There's even a buzzy original, the Tina Fey-produced Girls5eva.

Peacock also throws in a few “channels” in case you've got decision fatigue, with dedicated streams of The Tonight Show, Today, and yes, a 24/7 Real Housewives fix for those who need it.
