The 5 Best FREE Streaming Apps for Apple TV





There’s a lot of great content available on streaming devices for free if you know where to look for it. In this post, we’re sharing five Apple TV apps that will allow you to watch shows and movies at no charge.

1. Pluto TV

Pluto TV gives you over 100 channels of live TV for free. With over 1000 movies and TV episodes, you’ll always have something new to watch. The channel lineup includes major channels like NBC and CBS, along with exclusive channels like Anime All Day and Food TV.

2. Popcornflix

Popcornflix is 100% free streaming app with no subscription required. After downloading to your Apple TV, you can use the app to stream full-length movies and TV shows. The streaming service is ad-based, but includes a large library at no cost.

3. Sony Crackle

Crackle has a good variety of TV shows, and an even better lineup of movies, all available for free. You’ll find new releases, classic movies, and binge-worthy originals from Crackle. With the app, you’ll be able to filter your search by genre and create a Watch Later list to organize the content you want to see.

4. Tubi TV

Tubi TV is another streaming service with a library of both TV episodes and movies with no credit card and no subscription required. While Tubi TV is ad supported, the streaming service says you’ll see less ads than you would with cable TV. From comedy to drama to kids to classics, there’s a category for everyone in the family on Tubi.

5. Vudu

While the Vudu will let you rent or buy movies, the app also has a large library of movies available for free. You can watch these thousands of movies with occasional ad breaks on your Apple TV or download to watch later on an iPhone or iPad.
