Popcornflix is a website and over-the-top service that allows users to stream free ad-supported video. The site is owned by Screen Media Ventures. In 2017, it was acquired by Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment. While it still maintains its free model, users are able to subscribe to a paid subscription service.
While most AVOD services charge a monthly fee to use their services, Popcornflix is free to use. The service allows you to stream hundreds of feature-length movies and TV shows for free. While the service does have ads interspersed throughout the videos, they are minimal and won’t distract you from your watching experience.
The Popcornflix interface is easy to use. The app is divided into separate categories, so you can easily find and select what you want to watch. The app is available for both Android and iOS devices. It also supports smart TVs. To access Popcornflix on a smart TV, you must have a device with an internet connection such as a Roku TV, Apple TV, Xbox One, or Android TV.
Unlike many free streaming services, Popcornflix does not require you to register. You can stream videos without signing up, and you can sync your progress across your devices. The app also offers a watchlist for future content.
