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

There's a free Popcornflix 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 and for Android 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.

Where Popcornflix Movies Come From

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.
