Free online movie streaming sites to keep you busy during quarantine

Streaming is on the rise for everyone, and if you’re stuck at home and you’ve streamed everything you want on your current library, you may be looking for something new.

Fortunately, it’s possible to get access to new content without signing up for another service. Here’s a look at some of the best free online movie streaming sites to keep you busy during quarantine. Most of these are ad-supported, so you may have to sit through some commercials, and most of these are available either as an app or just through a browser.

Pluto TV
Pluto TV is a free streaming service that has both live TV and movies. They actually have a pretty large collection of free movies to stream (they claim thousands), including titles like Officer Down, The Stranger, UHF, Road to Perdition, Barbershop and more. There’s even an extensive selection of James Bond films, and no account signup is needed.


A glance at Tubi’s movie selection showed somewhat recent titles like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Shrek 2, The Conjuring, Boondock Saints, and more. You don’t need even need to sign up for an account to start watching.

Sling TV

Sling TV is known for their live television subscription service, but they have a free content section that lets you watch more than 1,000 movies and 4,000 television shows without being a subscriber. If you’re a horror fan, check out their horror section, as it’s significantly larger than other services.


Crackle has actually been around for a long time, and offers many more movies than TV shows (including some original content). No account setup is necessary, but if you do set one up, you can restart streaming if you pause. The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3 is among the more popular movies on the service at the moment, along with several Ernest titles, Glory, Little Women, the Longest Yard, and Look Who’s Talking.
