When it comes to watching free movies online in Australia you don't have to type for very long to find them. In Australia we still have relatively well resourced free-to-air television.
Those traditional stations who for so long ruled the broadcast world, have embraced the competition and offer a fantastic range of movies.
SBS ON DEMAND
Top of the ladder when it comes to free movies is SBS on Demand. You may be one of those people who, apart from tuning into their sporting block busters, have never watched our multi-cultural broadcaster in your life.
If so you are missing out. SBS on Demand offers action, adventure, art house, comedy, drama, classic and they're in whatever color you like including rainbow
The majority of titles are American or in English but if you can stretch to sub-titled movies you'll be well rewarded. There's more than 600 free movies available at any time and they stay up for a month at a time, sometimes longer.
Sure they're not the latest Hollywood blockbusters, no one offers them for free, but you can get recent Academy awards winners.
Also present on SBS on Demand are programs they broadcast on their free to air station. You won't miss an episode of what was on over the past month.
When it comes to offering free movies our other government broadcaster, the ABC offers, ABC IView. Unlike SBS there's no separate library of films but whatever movies and tv programs they've had on free to air over the past month are there and accessible.
Sony have come to the free movie market rather late but Sony Crackle have an impressive collection of movies across a range of platforms.
Again there's not a lot that's latest release but the quality and range is there particularly with horror and sci-fi.
It's easy to sign up. Once you've activated your device with the code they send you you can start using with ease within minutes. I found the site user friendly and easy to navigate.
Well worth a look.
YOU TUBE FREE MOVIES
There is a bewilldering range of movies legally available on You Tube. The most important thing to know is the correct title of the movie.
Again latest release stuff is unlikely to be legal but if you have an urge to watch a specific title it's worth including youtube early in your search. Just be aware you'll often be redirected and asked to sign up before being given access.
The industry giants Netflix, Foxtel, and Stan offer free one month trials before their subscription kicks in. There's a world of free movies there. But beware you have to give up your credit card details before signing on but the days of lock in contracts for extended periods are numbered. You can cancel anytime.
