Crackle.com and Hulu.com allow users to watch free 2014 movies, but some films might not be in HD quality. Both services also provide a large selection of television shows and movies from other years. Streaming movies also feature video advertisements during the films. Hulu.com only allows some content for free, and other content requires a paying subscription membership. Both services can be viewed online and on other devices, such as smartphones and tablets.
Crackle.com allows all of its video content to be streamed for free. Video content can be watched without an account; however, more features are available by creating one. Creating an account is free and allows members to create a watchlist and add videos to watch later. Accounts can also be created with a Facebook account, and this allows users to share favorite videos with friends.
As of 2015 Hulu.com subscriptions begin at about $7.99 per month with limited commercials. The option of subscribing with no commercials is also available, but this requires a higher monthly subscription fee. Hulu is the only subscription service that also offers current season content from several American broadcast networks.
Popcornflix.com and Viewster.com are other websites that also allow viewers to legally watch free movies online.
