With the recent instructions for most of us to stay indoors, many of us have struggled to keep ourselves occupied. Boredom has been hitting pretty hard. COVID-19 isn’t stopping for anyone, but not everyone is lucky enough to have a plethora of entertainment to hand. Not all of us have streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime. This has left many with next to nothing to do while stuck inside of our homes. So what’s the next best option?
Well, there are more options for people out there who aren’t subscribed to streaming services. All people need is an internet connection (and the patience to sit through ads). The cinemas may have closed their doors, but you can still watch plenty of films!
One simple life hack many don’t know is that YouTube offers everyone the chance to watch certain movies for free with adverts. There are tons of films available, including the classic Teen Wolf if you’re feeling nostalgic. YouTube adds movies every day, and with what’s been happening recently, they are bound to add more.
With news of new movies postponed indefinitely, the cinema has taken an extreme hit, with the highly-anticipated Bond film as one of the first to push back its release due to the coronavirus. But Pluto.TV is letting people watch free movies, including fan-favorite James Bond films such as Diamonds are Forever. If the crime films aren’t up your street, then you can also watch films such as Thelma & Louise, or King Kong. There’s plenty of choices, get searching!
Another service many are unfamiliar with is IMDb TV. The world’s go-to platform for information on upcoming movies and shows (except us of course) now offers people with a free IMDb account to watch free movies and tv series. There’s something for everyone, from animated Scooby-Doo to blockbuster Blade Runner 2049. And if you are in the mood to start binge-watching a new series, then shows such as Heroes are free to watch. Amazing to pass the time!
Tubitv is one of the largest platforms to offer free movies for anyone to watch, as it updates regularly to ensure people aren’t bored with the same content. There’s is currently tons available to match any kind of genre your feeling. In the mood to jump out your skin? Annabelle should do the trick! Need a good rom-com? Legally Blonde and Failure to Launch should get you in the feels. Want to watch an action movie to keep you on your toes? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles should accomplish that.
So there’s no need to worry, there’s plenty of content out there for people to watch without having to subscribe to anything. If you do have a Netflix account, then check this out!
