Popcornflix

Popcornflix is a perfectly legal website that lets you watch full-length, free movies in both the U.S. and Canada. You'll see a lot of actors and actresses you recognize in movies you've heard of and some you haven't.

No registration is required, so you'll be enjoying your chosen movie or TV show in seconds. This video streaming service is ad-supported, however, so you'll have to sit through a few commercial breaks.

Where Popcornflix Gets Its Movies

Popcornflix is owned by Screen Media Ventures, a large independent movie distributor, and that's where it gets its films. This is a partnership, so the movies are completely legal to stream.

You Get A Wide Variety of Free-Streaming Genres

Popcornflix has a nice-sized collection of free streaming movies in common and popular genres like comedy, drama, action, horror, romance, documentaries, family, nostalgia, and foreign films.

The staff also puts movies in additional genres like Espanol, National Geographic, National Geographic Wild, critically acclaimed, sci-fi/mystery, wild West, extreme sports, and rock stars. These extra genres can sometimes change.

Popcornflix also lets you watch episodes from several film school originals and web series, such as Regenesis, Women Behind Bars, Cheaters, Sonic the Hedgehog, Legend of Zelda, and America's Dumbest.

You can search for movies by their titles or check out the New Arrivals or Most Popular pages. There are also links to featured movies and shows, staff picks, and more.

Where to Find More Popcornflix Movies and Shows

Popcornflix has two entirely separate websites as well: Popcornflix Kids and FrightPix. They both look almost identical to Popcornflix but the first offers only movies for kids and the second features horror films.

Some of the more popular Popcornflix videos for kids include Eye of the Dolphin, Cinderella, The Nutcracker, The Good Witch, Popeyes Greatest Tall Tales and Heroic Adventures, Jack and the Beanstalk, White Lion, and The Little Mermaid.

Watch Popcornflix With Free Apps

There's a free movie app available, too, so you can watch Popcornflix's movies on your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. There's also one for BlackBerry, Amazon Kindle, and Android devices.

If you'd rather watch the free movies and shows at Popcornflix on a larger screen, you might be interested in the app for Roku, Xbox, or PS4 devices. There's even one for Samsung TVs.

The Popcornflix Kids website has a mobile app, too, for iOS devices. This app is different from the regular Popcornflix app in that there are only kids' movies here, just like on the website. This is a good idea for children so they don't accidentally stumble on scary or inappropriate content.
