Popcornflix is a legal website where you can watch full-length streaming movies for free in the both the U.S. and Canada. You'll see a lot of actors and actresses you'll recognize here in some movies you've heard of and some you haven't.

No registration is required, so you'll be enjoying your chosen movie or TV show in seconds. However, this video streaming service is ad-supported, so you will have to sit through a few commercial breaks during your movie.

Popcornflix has a nice-sized collection of free streaming movies in common and popular genres like Comedy, Drama, Action, Horror, Romance, Documentaries, Family, Nostalgia, and Foreign Films.

Though they may sometimes change, the Popcornflix staff puts movies in additional genres like Bros Movies, Espanol, National Geographic, National Geographic Wild, Critically Acclaimed, Sci-Fi/Mystery, Wild West, Extreme Sports, and Rockstars.

You can also search for movies at Popcornflix by their title or use the All Movies link, which shows five movies in every genre on one single page that's easy to skim through. There's also a New Arrivals and Most Popular page that shows dozens upon dozens of the new and popular videos at Popcornflix.

In addition, Popcornflix lets you watch episodes from around 30 film school originals and web series, like Regenesis, Good News, Beer An Insiders Guide, Women Behind Bars, Cheaters, Sonic the Hedgehog, Legend of Zelda, Road Cops, Art of Fighting, Alaska State Troopers, Urban Legends, Americas Dumbest Criminals, and Untamed With Davey Hughes.

Where to Find More Popcornflix Movies & Shows

Popcornflix has two entirely separate websites called Popcornflix Kids and FrightPix. They both look almost identical to Popcornflix but only have movies for kids and horror films, respectively of course.

Some of the categories of scary movies at FrightPix includes Scary Good, Sexy Horror, Paranormal, Demons, Vampires, Slasher, Zombies, Cult, and Creepy Documentaries.

Popcornflix Kids categories its movies in sections just for Cartoons, Pop Junior (1-4), Pop Junior (4-10), Girl Power, Fairy Tales, Fun For the Family, and some others that are specific to some particular TV shows for kids.

Watch Popcornflix With Free Apps

There's a free movie app for watching Popcornflix's movies on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. There's also one for BlackBerry, Amazon Kindle, and Android devices.

If you'd rather watch the free movies and shows at Popcornflix from a larger screen, you may be more interested in the app for Roku, Xbox, PS3, or PS4 devices. There's even one for Samsung TVs.

The Popcornflix Kids website has a mobile app too, for Android and iOS devices. This app is different from the regular Popcornflix app in that, just like the website, there are only kids movies here. This is a good idea for children so they don't accidentally stumble on a scary or inappropriate movie.

Note: I also have a list of other free movie apps that you can download for these devices that let you watch movies from websites similar to Popcornflix, like Crackle and Yidio.

Where Popcornflix Gets Its Movies

Popcornflix is owned by Screen Media Ventures, a large independent movie distributor, which is where it gets is films.
