Vudu

Vudu is Walmart’s reply to Netflix. While the service is better famous for at-home movie rentals, there are several of ad-supported movies you can see completely for free.

Although there are a few downsides to the service, they balance out. The key problem is that you have to log in to see any movies, and lots of free movies move off the service relatively fast. However, the several of high-quality movies makes a little hassle worthwhile. Vudu also puts in new movies on a regular basis, so you aren’t likely to be out of films to entertain you anytime soon.

Since its introduction in 2014, Tubi TV has been working hard to up its library of content, which it claims now includes some 40,000 titles. That number is attractive, but Tubi TV’s roster still pretty light on recent common films and somewhat padded with filler titles you’ve probably never heard of. Also, it does offer connection to films from the libraries of MGM, Lionsgate, and Paramount Pictures. A more recent cope with Starz Digital adds some independent films and TV shows from that channel. Other pluses contain a decent selection of international programs and movies, and a good-sized collection of kids’ TV shows and movies from networks like Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon.

There are few recent blockbusters, however you can find older yet well-known dramas such “Glengarry Glen Ross,” comedies such as “Get Shorty,” and the action-adventure flick “Aeon Flux.” There are also cult classics, like “Killer Klowns from Outer Space.”

There are almost 40 genre kinds to opt from, which can help reduce the choices when you’re browsing. In addition to the basics ones (Drama Movies, Comedy Movies, etc.), there are also niche-oriented kinds, such as Black Cinema, Anime, and Korean Dramas. Novel kinds include Cult Favorites, Highly Rated on Rotten Tomatoes, and Not on Netflix.

Featured content is at the top of the display, with the genre kinds listed below. Tubi TV doesn’t ask you to make an account. However, if you do you can sync your movies across several devices, and save movies and programs to a queue for watching later. Click on a title and you immediately has a commercial, and new ones tend to run every 15 minutes or so.

Because Tubi TV is largely supported, you can get it on iOS and Android devices, Roku streaming players, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung smart TVs, and Xbox One game consoles.
