There's nothing better on a day off than curling up on the couch and relaxing with a movie. The pandemic has changed the way people watch movies, with more streaming options available. Paying for movies can be costly, though. Luckily, there are plenty of apps offering free movies, and you probably already have access to them right on your smart TV. Below I'm sharing my four favorite apps to find free movies.


1. Vudu

When I'm looking for a movie, Vudu is my first choice. They have a variety of free movies and TV shows available, with new titles added regularly. The benefit of Vudu extends beyond their free options. You can connect your Wal-Mart account, and every time you buy a new movie with a digital copy, it'll automatically add it to your Vudu library. Vudu recently partnered up with FandangoNow, so once you migrate your account, you will have access to all of Vudu's features in addition to your library and watchlist.

What I also love about Vudu is the ability to buy or rent titles. They often offer early purchases of the latest releases as well as deals on renting movies. It's always a one-time fee and often cheaper than other on demand rental services. Vudu also conveniently accepts PayPal as a form of payment.

2. Pluto

Everyone knows about Pluto's free TV service, but did you know they also offer a wide selection of free movies on demand? Simply open the Pluto app and select the on demand option at the top of the screen. You'll be taken to their library of free movies and TV shows, broken down by category. They have one of the best selections available, with over ten different genre categories. There's something for everyone!

3. Peacock

Most of Peacock's appeal lies with its subscription service. The app is always worth a peek, however, as they sometimes offer awesome titles for free. Around Thanksgiving last year, I was delighted to find the Back To The Future trilogy available. In December, my husband and I enjoyed watching Die Hard and Die Hard with a Vengeance.

When you're ready to settle in for a movie, be sure to check and see what Peacock has to offer. You may be pleasantly surprised to find a favorite waiting for you.

4. Tubi

Last, but not least, is Tubi. This app is generally hit or miss, but it's always worth scrolling through to see what's new. They have a wide range of movies and TV shows available, even old cartoons. There's something for everyone! Last summer, my husband and I enjoyed watching old episodes of This Old House and Ask This Old House. We also found Fluffy's Food Adventures and binged all the episodes available in one afternoon.
