Free, legal TV and movie streaming apps on Android

Best apps for movie streaming 6
© nextpit

You don't have to pay for a cable or streaming subscription to get great TV shows and movies on your Android smartphone. Don't believe me? We've put together a list of apps which will let you stream all kinds of content legally and for free in the US. Check it out!


Hulu lets users watch premium TV shows and movies on their smartphones or tablets without paying a subscription fee. It's packed with current and classic shows, Hulu originals, movies and plenty of kids' shows, making it a perfect family tablet companion.

If you want full access to the Hulu library you will need to pay $5.99 a month with limited commercials and $11.99 without commercials, but there are plenty of gems in the free version too. If you're willing to be patient then you'll be able to find some great shows for free.

Crackle is a popular free app, which is updated monthly with new TV shows and movies. Created by Grouper but later bought by Sony, the app features ads which run at regular intervals throughout the content, the trade-off for which is that you get an excellent selection of media and an app that functions far better than some of the other TV service ports on the list.

Crackle, like Netflix or Amazon, has picked up some original content that's getting more popular. The most famous of these is 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' starring Jerry Seinfeld. It's on its eighth season and has featured some major guests like Will Ferrell, Ricky Gervais and Barack Obama.



With the CBS app, you can stream as much as you want without having to verify your cable TV subscription credentials. It comes with episodes of shows like The Big Bang Theory, Criminal Minds, Elementary, The Good Wife and Two and a Half Men, plus late night hits like The Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

The CW Network

With shows like America's Next Top Model, Arrow, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries, the CW doesn't disappoint with fun content. You don't have to verify your cable TV subscription credentials, but you do have to sit through ads. All in all, this is a good app (if you like the content) that runs smoothly.

The History Channel's app offers some fun reality shows like American Pickers, Gangland, Mountain Men, Ice Road Trucker and old episodes of Top Gear (which recently moved to Amazon Prime under the name The Grand Tour). The History app allows you to search shows by topic, like WWII or Ancient History, which is a neat feature. The only downside is that there are several ads shown per episode.

The Android SPB TV app is not region-specific and offers content from around the world via a selection of weird and wonderful stations. From the NASA channel to Comedy for Women, this app gives you a pretty healthy mix of content. 

You won't find the latest Hollywood blockbuster, NBC or Showtime on SPB TV, but if you want to take a chance on a wild card, this is the app to use. A few of the stations definitely appear to be of a more adult nature (how you choose to use that information is up to you).

Another excellent Anime streaming app is Crunchyroll. And this one is available through Google Play. It has a huge selection of the best anime available for free. The app is quite popular, with over ten million downloads and has gotten a decent rating.

Running the app is quite simple. Just browse through your favorite shows and they will run with subtitles. The default is English so you won't have to mess with the language settings. You'll have to watch some advertisements but mostly for the premium service it offers. Basically, you can pay $4.99 so you won't have to watch Crunchyroll advertisements.

Those are just a few suggestions for how to stream free movies and TV shows on your smartphone. If you tried any of these apps, what did you think of them? Are there any of your favorite apps we've left off this list? Share them with us in the comments.

    I think Mobdro is also the best online TV viewing application. Watch movies, sports news, quality music and free today. is the leading provider of this application. Quickly install and experience the latest features.

    Users in developed economies should check the local public library for increasingly good video (as well as ebook, audiobook and music) services on their taxpayer's dime, no fees. College and university students and staff should also look into what their schools make available, which can go far beyond purely educational into vintage, foreign and art film. In Toronto, a public library card entitles citizens to Kanopy and Hoopla which are both diverse and have thousands of titles. University students also get Criterion-on-Demand, with a couple of thousand classic movies. If a city library system or university fails to provide these services in the 21st Century, time to get on the barricades and demand them.

    If you want great internet radio streaming, try "Radio Player by Audials" in the playstore. Free, no ads, and no request for donation even. Tons of features, but best, is recording, while listening or scheduled in background. It's unbelievable that more don't know about this gem. Great UI, exceptional performance, built in equalizer, etc,etc,etc. If you hate the ads on Play Music, or TuneIn, or others, then check this one out.

      In my opinion this ("Radio Player by Audials") is a lame app that has never lived up to its audio stream capture promises.

      Every new version claims it will capture live audio streams (meaning grab the stream instantly - non real time which is what most folks want/need) then it turns around and just gives you standard real time recording off your computers audio port meaning if the song takes 6 mins you have to sit there and record the full six minutes which any basic audio recording app does for FREE so why would I get this paid app to do the same?

      I tried three previous purchases and finally gave up when each promising version failed again to live up to their promise of true audio stream capture.

      I really have no faith they will ever get their app to do what they always promise since that part of their app never works. Believe me I spent hours if not days with their tech support with no true tangible response regarding true audio stream capture.

    Once you figure out how to get useful streams you can do cool things like watch movies that are still playing in the cinemas.

    The program isn’t useless, but if it’s too technical for you then fine, move on. Don’t diss the program its very powerful.

        Don't worry... Just take things step by step and you'll learn new things every day. I'd get a notebook and notate anything that interests you or instructions on how to perform a task on your phone, etc. Notate apps that seem interesting to you as you come across them so you can take your time to learn about them. You're never too old to learn something new!

      Hi Saul, I just followed your link then downloaded from Googleplay. I haven't had time to work with your app as of yet, I've just signed in and connected to Google drive (Which went very smoothly) and got back to you.
      This fills a gap in the market perfectly, which I've been looking for sometime as I've uploaded hundreds of movies into Google drive but unfortunately unable to load up the movies poster's , and i'am struggling with putting TV seasons together and in order, also renaming some title's which just come with a reference number.
      From the quick look I gave your app, it appears to cover all these (so thank heaven's). I will get to know how it functions and leave you fair feedback, unlike unfortunately some have and don't know what it's for! I hope you make a paid one so people have the choice to get rid of the ads, and I hope you keep this up/in development as it serves a great purpose, and as more individuals come across it will appreciate it as an indispensable tool.
      Can't wait to start reorganising the dreadful mess which I'm currently in, and have a ordered movie streaming platform of my own, great idea this app of yours, I hope it works out and you don't mind me reporting any bug's.
      All the best for New Year.

    If you want the best stand alone app for T.V and movies download showbox. If you want a multi media centre at the touch of a finger then download KODI. KODI runs alot of different add-ons like; live sport, live T.V from multiple countries, music, pictures. It can access just about anything. You can access youtube, shoebox, BBC iPlayer, ITV, ch4 etc. Its not hard to use and there is millions of you tube videos to help you.

    Hi, I would recommend an online movie and tv shows with Daily Update. No registrations, no sign-ups, no downloads, it support PS3, Ipad and Mobile devices.

    I had the first HTC1 with this app on it and never had any problems. I just upgraded to the new HTC1 M8 and when I open the app it says "Connection error" "check your internet connection" I have full bars and 4g so I'm not sure what's going on. Please help, I really need to catch up on my shows!!

    I downloaded this app but it complains "Internet connection. Check your internet connection". I access the Internet using my Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 through my home WIFI via Time Warner Cable. I only have one bar on my wireless. I'm guessing that the app is trying to use wireless even though WIFI is available. Any help?

      I have the exact same problem with the same phone. Everyone else I know that has a different phone has no problem. I have xfinity Internet with 4 bars wifi. This sucks!

        I know what that feels like. Used to own one. Honestly? It was worth the $250 to update to a Samsung Galaxy 3-clearance. Outdated? Yes. Worth the $? ABSOLUTELY!

    Perhaps try to clear the cache or use a different player for the videos or even try using the showbox player

    A brilliant app. I've downloaded this app to my very old HTC Desire HD, my Xperia Z tablet and a Tesco's Hudl. The app works well on all three. Downloads appear to more responsive if the cache is kept cleared. This also applies when some movies say video is not yet available, when I've already downloaded it on another unit. Clearing the cache improved overall performance. Great app, well done.

    Those having issues with video can't be played try using MX Player it installed a codec and I've never had any issues.

    Doesn't work on HTC one, message says sorry the video can't be played. Also if you download one it never goes past 0%.

    This app is awesome. I can download movies and shows to my tablet and then transfer them to a USB drive to play on my TV.

    This is probably the best app I have downloaded. Entertained me on the journey home from London to Glasgow. Highly recomend. Have installed it on my g-pad and my g2 and it works really well. Love it.
