Free Movies Online

What do you think when you hear the phrase “free movies online”? Is it suspected of copyright infringement, dark-looking download sites, or enthusiasm for the tremendous display possibilities? While the checkered past of free movies online has some people wary, let’s be clear about the right places to watch free movies online.

Some of the new players are Crackle, EPIX, Fancast, and SlashControl. Crackle is backed by Sony Pictures and has hundreds of free movies like Ghostbusters, Godzilla, and St. Elmo’s Fire. EPIX is the newest movie site for Paramount, MGM, and Lionsgate, and it’s the perfect place to watch Ironman, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and many more popular movies. Fancast is backed by cable giant Comcast and has hundreds of more movies, including Chaplin, Captain America, and Naked Gun 2.5.

SlashControl was started by AOL TimeWarner and has many more movies like Sparticus, Ronin, and the classic western Hang ’em High. Those sites join the other mainstays of free movies, including Hulu, Veoh, and Joost. Even YouTube has jumped on the bandwagon and legally hosts free movies online, like classic Shirley Temple movies like The Little Princess and Heidi.

Several television sites also have movies online, including American Movie Classics (AMC), Syfy, ABC Family, and TNT. If you have a Netflix subscription, the Instant Watch feature is free for the owner’s account. The best movies to watch online include Wall-E, Bolt, The Nightmare Before Christmas, as well as the extensive list of STARZ games. So if you’re going to watch a movie on a computer, here are some quick tips:

1. Change the screen saver and power saving functions to longer than film life.

2. If you are looking through an inexpensive wireless router, such as the ones offered by AT&T U-Verse for free, make sure the router is well ventilated, as prolonged viewing could cause minor overheating, causing the router to would restart and cause the movie to take an unexpected intermission.

3. Otherwise, sit back and enjoy.
