Free Online Movie Comparison
Compare the genres & features of the most popular movie streaming websites
I keep a large, updated list of the the best places to watch movies online, but how should you determine which one to start exploring first? One way to start is to look through this comparison table.
Every movie streaming site mentioned below offers action and comedy films but not all of them include popular genres like horror, drama, and movies for kids; and some genres like foreign and Latino are even more rare.
Just check out the table to see how they compare with one another.
Most of these sites include free TV shows, too, in addition to a large collection of free films. Some might have higher quality videos than others, and a few let you pay for more content that what's offered with a free user account. Different filtering options are available with some of these websites to help you find your favorite movies or help you stumble on something new to watch. There are even free mobile apps offered by most of these movie streaming websites.
Given that there are different features included at these sites, a comparison chart like this one is extremely helpful in deciding which website you should start with without having to visit each of them to see what they offer.
Note: Remember that this table only shows five free movie streaming websites. There are several more you can check out in my list of the Best Places to Watch Free Movies Online.

 YouTube has a free app for many different devices but it's built for music and other videos, not necessarily for browsing for free movies like the desktop website offers. Visit YouTube on Devices to download the mobile app.
 Some of movies on YouTube and Watch Documentary do contain advertisements, but several of the movies I tested out had absolutely none.
If you'd like to download free movies instead of stream them from a browser or mobile app, see Where to Download Free Movies Online for some ways you can do that.
