Some of them are streamed right there on Yidio's website but others are hosted elsewhere. You can also use Yidio to find free TV shows. Similar to movies, most of them are simply links that take you to other free websites because they aren't hosted on Yidio. Our Experience Watching Movies & Shows at Yidio Yidio's Free Movies Twilight, Scary Movie, Groundhog Day, The Passion of the Christ, Ninja, Alien Convergence, A Girl Like Her, Jurassic City, and Lionheart were just some of the free movies we were able to catch the last time we visited Yidio. There are multiple ways to find free movies at Yidio, so you shouldn't have any problem deciding what to watch next. For one, Yidio categorizes its movies into over 30 genres like Comedy, Sports & Fitness, Western, Eastern, Classics, TV Movie, Horror, Drama, Kids & Family, Documentary, and Action. You can also filter movies by their raing (NR, R, PG-13, etc.) and IMDb score. As if those filters aren't enough, you can sort the results, too, by popularity or recently added. You can see it's really easy to find free Yidio movies. In addition to movies directly hosted by Yidio, there are also free movies linked to other sites like Tubi, The Roku Channel, Pluto TV, Vudu, and IMDb TV. However, some movies are only available through a movie streaming service that you have to pay for, like Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, and Google Play. You can definitely filter the Yidio movies by source like HBO Now or Freeform to see movies that are only from that service, but the Free section is the only way to see movies you can stream at no cost. Watch Free Movies at Yidio Yidio's Free TV Shows A few TV series we've been able to watch at Yidio include Riverdale, Legacies, Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy, The Flash, Law & Order: SVU, The Blacklist, This Is Us, South Park, Sistas, The Oval, A New Leaf, and Rainbow Ruby. Similar to when using Yidio to find free movies, you can browse free Yidio TV shows by source (e.g., ABC or Cartoon Network), title, and genre. They can also be sorted by popularity or recently added. You can also find free TV shows online via the TV Channel section. This lets you filter the shows by the channel they aired on, like, CBS, Lifetime, NBC, Freeform, TLC, A&E, FOX, MTV, Discovery Channel, and many others. Not every episode of a show is necessarily available for free, but you can filter the results to show just the free TV shows offered by Yidio and other sources. Once you're on the TV series page, you'll find a section for Free Sources which lists all the episodes that are available for free streaming. Watch Free TV Shows at Yidio Yidio’s Video Quality Most videos found at Yidio are of DVD quality. However, your experience watching shows and movies through Yidio will depend on your own internet speed as well as which website you land on (like The CW Network). In our experiences, we didn't run into any buffering issues or slow video loads. How to Avoid Buffering Issues When Streaming Video Benefits of Registering With Yidio If you create a free account with Yidio, you can get email alerts pertaining to movies and shows you add to your favorites list. Custom options are available to trigger notifications when new episodes air and/or are available online, a news story is released, and/or when new clips become available. You can also use your account to add movies and TV shows to a queue and then refer to it later to watch them all in one place. Making a Yidio account also lets you subscribe to Yidio Premium to remove ads and get real-time alerts. Yidio App Yidio has a free mobile app for Android, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Amazon Kindle devices that lets you watch free movies and TV shows at Yidio on the go. Something to keep in mind when watching movies and shows through the Yidio mobile app is that because many of the videos are hosted on other websites, you'll most likely also end up installing apps that belong to other services, such as Vudu's or Tubi's. Other Free Apps for Watching Streaming Movies Where Yidio Gets Its Movies Lots of the content found at Yidio are hosted on other websites, but there are also some that are streamed directly from Yidio. Some of the websites Yidio gets its movies from include Amazon, Vudu, Google Play, Microsoft, Tubi, iTunes, YouTube, IMDb TV, FlixFling, and FandangoNOW.
