“I downloaded this app back in February of this year, and I continue to be majorly impressed with Tubi. I use it heavily, every day and choose it first over my other movie apps. I have never had any issues whatsoever with movie playback. I am a horror lover, and the selection is awesome, surpassing other popular movie services.

10,000,000+ downloads


Pluto TV is a free video streaming app that doesn’t require a subscription or any type of registration. Creating an account is optional but I created one to save TV channels to my favorites. There’s a lot of video content in so many different categories. There is a decent amount of sports, cooking, reality TV, news, and comedy channels. It also has a lot of free video content for kids. The amount of commercials that play are reasonable considering it’s a free app.

Useful Review:

“Kind of mind boggling, but it really is a completely free video streaming platform. The commercials are no worse than what you’d get from Hulu or YouTube, and while it doesn’t have all the latest movies and TV shows there’s still plenty of stuff I’ve heard of and would like to watch.”

  • Watch over 200 LIVE TV channels (similar layout to cable or satellite TV).
  • Free to use without required subscription. Creating an account does allow you to add channels to favorites.
  • Searching for movies and shows is easy using this app.

FREECABLE TV has a lot of streaming video content. It has thousands of free movies, TV shows (full episodes), sports channels, cartoons, music and 24/7 movie channels. The LIVE TV channels section works a lot like normal cable and satellite service. This app makes it easy to find channels that I want to watch by breaking up the programming into sections. Overall, this is a nice app to download. I’m happy with the amount of movies and TV series that it has and having LIVE TV included is a bonus. You may find that this free app can replace your paid cable or satellite service. This app is ad-supported but commercials play with my paid satellite TV so this is no different.

Useful Review:
