Are you a fan of movies and you are looking for the best sites to watch movies free online from the comfort of your home?

In this article, I’d listing some of the best sites to watch movies online, some with subscriptions, some without.

If you love movies as I do, you’d know finding the right sites to get the movie of your choice can be daunting sometimes. So, I have taken out time to compile this comprehensive list for your selection.

Now, the word “best” could mean different things to people. I might find oldies pretty interesting and you might not. So, this list is ranked in no particular order. Just find one that suits your preferences and you are good to go.

Now, let’s dive right in and find out the best sites to watch movies for free online.

12 Best Sites to Watch Movies Online

1. Netflix

Probably one of the most popular sites, Netflix needs no introduction of its own. I am a big fan of Netflix and its movies.

Netflix creates content just for its platform and is an ideal site to stream some of the in-demand series and movies.

They have an uncanny ability to produce a series that captivates and keeps you glued to your seat. The minimum subscription for Netflix is N1,200 while the premium plan is placed at N4,400.

2. Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime makes the list of best sites to watch movies online. Its catchy quality is in the number of movies and series you can find on the site.

Also, the movies available are of great quality and sound. So, you can be assured of the best movie experience.

However, with quality comes a great price. To have access to Amazon Prime, you need to pay a monthly subscription fee of $5.99.

3. HBO Max

Ever wondered what HBO stands for?

HBO is short for Home Box Office. HBO Max is one of the newest streaming platforms and also one of the best.

First, you have access to some top-notch movies. Then the icing on the cake- you get to watch all HBO originals. You remember Game of Thrones, yes? Now, imagine having access to top series like that and more!

Currently, HBO max is unavailable in Nigeria.

4. Crackle

Crackle makes the list of one of the best sites to watch movies for free online. It is owned by Sony after it acquired it in 2006. It’s a not-so-popular site, yet it offers some of the best collections of movies you can find on the internet today.

Furthermore, it has a library collection of movies produced by Lionsgate, DreamWorks, and of course, Sony. And yes, you do not need to pay a subscription fee.

It is entirely free and legit. Well, with a few ads. But then, that’s a small price to pay.

5. DisneyPlus

When you hear the word “Disney”, what comes to mind? Did I hear someone say, children?

If you are looking for the best site to watch all things, Disney, from animations to movies, DisneyPlus is your best pick.

It has a library collection of all Disney movies and animations with additions from Marvel, Pixar, and many more.

As a big fan of animations, I recommend DisneyPlus with my full chest. Although, you’d need to subscribe to have access to these amazing collections.

6. Tubi

One of the best sites to watch movies free online is Tubi. It is owned by Fox Corporations which gives you access to their contents.  It has a decent library with movies from big shots like Warner Bros, Paramount, and a host of others. Also, it has a wide range of trending movies of high quality.

What more?

There is a section dedicated to kids where children can watch fun cartoons with parental control settings.

Did I mention again that you do not need a subscription fee to use Tubi?

7. Hulu

Hulu is an online streaming platform with a collection of both new and old movies making it a good selection if you want to see what classics felt like.

With a monthly subscription of $6.99, you get access to some pretty decent movies.

You can also add some premium channels like HBO and Showtime if you are using Hulu with Live Tv.

8. IMDbTv

Now if you’ve ever searched for a movie or producer or video game online, you’d have come across the word “IMDb”. It stands for Internet Movie Database.

It is a website that gives information about millions of movies, series, production crew, ratings, and the like.

IMDb TV is the online streaming service of the platform owned by Amazon. It is one of the best sites to watch movies free online.

You can access it through Amazon Prime with loads of quality movies you can choose from. However, because it’s free, it has a limited collection compared to Amazon Prime.

9. Kanopy

Lately, I’ve been pretty obsessed with classics and I’ve had a hard time watching them. Classics like Charlie Chaplain have had me in a chokehold. Well, it’s been hard searching until I found Kanopy.

Kanopy is an online streaming platform with an entire library of classics. It has a vast collection of oldies making it a valuable site to reminiscence on old times.

All you need to access Kanopy is your library card or registration number. You can search for your school’s library using the signup page.

10. Popcornflix

Popcornflix ranks among some of the best sites to watch movies free online. It is a free streaming site with over 2000+ movies in its catalog.

The good thing about Popcornflix is that you do not need an account to use the site. All you need is your data and you’re good to go.

You can easily download the app from the site and enjoy your movies from the comfort of your home.

11. YouTube

Did you know you can watch movies through YouTube?. I once watched the documentary “the greatest bank robbery” on YouTube.

YouTube might be your go-to site for fun videos, but that’s not all the features. There’s a movie and show section with some movies available to watch.

It is entirely free and legal to watch.

12. Northflix

Northflix is a movie streaming platform with a library of northern movies and documentaries aimed at exposing the rich culture of the North.

It has a monthly subscription package of N1,499 that gives you access to quality Hausa movies online. The app can be downloaded on your smart devices for easy access.

There are different genres of movies and documentaries available for your entertainment with subtitles.


Now that you have some of the best sites to watch movies free online, you are one step away from enjoying premium entertainment from the comfort of your home.

However, you need to know that for free sites, you’d have to cope with ads popping up. The movies are free thanks to ads.

I am quite picky when it comes to movies. I love Netflix and HBO productions a lot. What’s your go-to site for watching movies online? Drop your answers in the comment section.


What are the best sites to watch Hollywood movies free online?

Some of the best sites include IMDb, Popcornflix, and Crackle.

What sites can I watch free movies online without registration?

YouTube and Crackle are legitimate sites that do not require registration before you can access their content.

What are the best paid streaming sites?

Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, and HBO max are some fantastic streaming sites to get your money’s worth.
