Viewster: Free, Legal Movies & TV Shows

Use the website or app to stream free movies anytime you want

Viewster closed down in September 2019. There are lots of other places to find free movies if you're looking for a Viewster alternative.

Viewster is a legal and free online movie website that has thousands of Hollywood and independent movies, as well as a limited number of free TV shows.

It's very easy to browse through TV shows and movies at Viewster because you can scroll through them on the homepage.

No registration or download is required to enjoy the online content at Viewster, but you will have to view some ads.

Read our review of Viewster to learn more about its features and our experience using it to stream free movies and TV shows.

Another way to see what free films are available at Viewster is from the homepage. You can sort the movies by latest additions, most viewed, feeling lucky, mixed, or staff picks. These are good ways to browse through the movies so that you don't have to pick a certain genre.

You can also filter the results by language so that only English, French, German, or Spanish films are shown on the homepage.

Viewster also has some of its movies hosted on YouTube. This might be a good way to get a few of Viewster's movies considering that other free movies are available on YouTube, too, from other companies.

It may be a good idea to follow the official Viewster Facebook page if you're looking for an easy way to be alerted of new movies. They also have a Twitter account: @viewster.

Viewster's Free Streaming TV Shows

While Viewster has plenty of movies to watch, they're rather new to the TV show arena, so there really isn't a huge selection of shows here. You'll find mainly foreign television shows and lesser known shows from the United States.

The TV shows are organized in the same genres as the movies. Just choose a genre and then uncheck the MOVIES filter at the top of the page to only show the videos that are a part of a TV series.

Again, like browsing through the movies, you can find Viewster's shows on the homepage, too, and sort them just like you can the movies.

Other animation, gaming, and comedy videos that Viewster has are sectioned off in the Channels part of the website, accessible through the menu at the top of the website. There are videos from channels like SMOSH Pit, ItsSuperEffective, The Racka Racka, So Krispy Media, Mike Diva, and Rizen Visual.
