Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Peacock, Prime Video, Disney+, and the streaming services just keep coming. If you thought you were already suffering from so-called subscriber fatigue, then you might want to look away now as the list below includes more than ninety free and paid services you can watch right now.
Pause for a moment and imagine having to sign up, manage payments, and change between apps for more than ninety different streaming services. If that all sounds a bit too much, that’s because it is. In fact, there are so many streaming services now that it’s almost impossible to keep track. What’s more, the list below doesn’t include any streaming services that are only available outside the United States. On a positive note, you might just find your next favorite streaming service before you make it to the end of the list.
Before going any further, this list excludes any service that’s solely considered to be a digital rental or storage shop (Google Play Movies), services that have already closed down (PlayStation Vue), and any that just looked a little less legit than they should.

Hoopla is not your usual streaming service. Technically, Hoopla provides access to movies for free. In fact, not just movies, but also music, books and more. However, the service is offered in conjuction with public libraries and therefore users do need to have a library card to use the service. What’s more, the content is not actually free for the libraries with them paying each time a user “borrows” a title. Due to this, each library has a monthly borrowing cap in place for its users. Hoopla is also not available everywhere, so access will greatly depend on where you are.

Kanopy is a very similar service to Hoopla in the sense that it also partners with public libraries to offer free streaming of movies (and more) for those with a library card.

Not all libraries currently support Kanopy, and some may place additional caps on how many movies you can stream each month.
Kocowa lets you stream South Korean content including Kpop, Kdramas, and KVariety from the main South Korean broadcasting channels. Making it a great destination for everything K-related.

Mubi is a service aimed at film-lovers and therefore the content takes more of a quality over quantity approach. The selection is hand-picked and limited to around 30 movies at a time.

From Pluto TV to Tubi
Pluto is another streaming option for those looking for live TV access although unlike most of the others, this one is completely free.

Many will already be familiar with The CW as it is typically bundled with a live TV package. However, The CW shows can be watched for free via many platforms and directly from The CW website. No sign-up or subscription needed.
The Roku Channel
The Roku Channel has become a force to be reckoned with and is now more than just a channel considering you can also subscribe to other channels and premium networks.

Vimeo is a video-sharing platform and in this respect it is very similar to YouTube. However, it does have a slightly different edge to it as you will find a lot more artistic content on the platform. In many ways, it’s a place for creators to exhibit their portfolios, although with the content being user-generated you will find all sorts and something to suit everyone. As you might expect, Vimeo is free.
VRV is another service that’s focused on anime although this one goes well beyond that with access to cartoons, tech and gaming videos.

While the channels might not be the most familiar channels, the service does claim to offer access to more than 180 channels in total.
YouTube should need no introduction. However, if you are new to the service than you can expect videos on just about anything and everything. YouTube is primarily a user-uploading platform although you will find more than just user content on the platform. YouTube is free to access.
