Best sites to stream free movies, TV shows and live news 2022

These days there are a ton of sites where you can stream video free to your heart’s content. As you may be aware, between cable bills and premium streaming services, the cost can add up to quite a large amount per month. With a little digging here and there, though, we’ve done the research for you to find some great free sites to stream content.


HBOMax, Netflix, AppleTV+

While you certainly can subscribe to some of these premium services, I have wrangled up a list of free video streaming options. You’ll note that what makes these services free is the integration of commercials that are next to impossible to skip.

Better yet, many of these free options don’t require you to sign up with the site.   However, you may want to create a free profile if you’d like to save your selections for future watching.  Let’s get you to the list of the 2022 best free streaming sources.


How to Stream Free Movies and TV

    • Peacock – Lots of great familiar content.  While there is a paid version of this site, you can watch lots of great content here.  You will need to sign up for a free account
    • Roku Channel – Looks for the blue words that say “FREE” under the title.  You can watch content without signing up for any sort of account
    • IMDB TV – Good options here. Will require you to sign up for a free account
    • Crackle – Another good option. Does not require you to sign up for a free account
    • Tubi – Another good option. Does not require you to sign up for a free account
    • Popcornflix– dedicated to movies only with over 1500 films available.  Many films here seem obscure, but I did recognize a good number of films. Does not require you to sign up for a free account.
    • Pluto TV  and Xumo – Not only can you watch movies on these platforms, but you can also watch an assortment of live TV news. These platforms also have a slick “guide” like interface for changing between channels.  Does not require you to sign up for a free account.
    • NewsOn – This streaming service offers over 275 local news streams.  Not a huge amount of stations, but check to see if your local news station is here.
    • Amazon Prime – While this isn’t technically free, if you are already an Amazon Prime member you are granted free access to their library of films and tv shows.

And if you’re looking for an affordable new device to stream this content on, I’ve got a great suggestion for a brand new laptop for around $279 (at time of publishing).  Yeah, you really can get a brand spanking new laptop for this little! The HP Chromebook 14 has an Intel Celeron N4000 processor, 4 GB/RAM, 32GB eMMC in this lightweight laptop with a built-in webcam, dual mics, and long battery life of up to 13 hours and 30 minutes of wireless streaming on one charge.
