Yidio works by showing you what movies you can watch on various websites, many of which are free movies you can watch straight from Yidio.

You can also use Yidio to find free TV shows, but similar to movies, most of them are simply links that take you to other free websites, as they aren't hosted on the Yidio website.

Yidio’s Free Streaming Movies

Yidio has all sorts of genres (around 30) where you can find free movies. Some of these are Comedy, Sports & Fitness, Western, Eastern, Classics, TV Movie, Horror, Drama, Kids & Family, Documentary, and Action.

You can also filter movies by their title or rating, such as R, PG-13, G, and others, and sort them by popularity or date added.

In addition to movies directly hosted by Yidio, there are also free movies linked to other sites like Crackle. However, some of the movies require a subscription or payment to watch the movies, such as those that are hosted on Netflix, Amazon, iTunes, and VUDU.

Dear Dumb Diary, Lion of Judah, White Rush, Bear, White Lion, Case 39, and Spirit of the Forest were just some of the free movies I was able to catch the last time I visited Yidio.
