5 Best Free Movie Apps For Galaxy S9

Tired of shelling out all of that cash for digitally renting movies and purchasing season after season of your favorite TV shows. That can easily add up into the hundreds of dollars, which is way more than anybody wants to spend on movies and TV shows. So, why not use a free app to watch your favorite movies and TV shows? You’ll never have to spend a dime again!

Here’s the best free movie apps you can get for the Galaxy S9.

Tubi TV

Tubi TV is first up on our list, and for a good reason — it’s easily one of the best ways to watch free movies and TV shows. Download it for free from the Google Play Store, and you’ll get access to thousands of titles right at your fingertips. They have a massive library that you can access right from your Galaxy S9, no subscription fees or credit card information required. Just download and start streaming! Tubi TV is regularly adding fresh content to its lineup as well. That said, you’ll never run out of new stuff to watch.

Next up on our list is Netflix. You might be shocked to see the app on a free movie app list, but there’s actually a couple of ways that you can watch Netflix without paying a dime. First, you can take advantage of their 1-month free trials. You can easily bounce between these with new emails and credit card information. Or, you can consult your phone carrier for any current promotions going on — some phone carriers, such as T-Mobile, are offering promotions where you switch or buy a new phone and you’ll get 12-months of Netflix for free.

Download it now: Google Play Store


Popcornflix is next up on our list. You can snag it from the Google Play Store for free, in which it’ll give you access to hundreds of titles for free. You’ll have plenty of content to keep you occupied for hours on end. And with no subscription fees or credit card information required, you don’t have to worry about any recurring billing. Download Popcornflix to your Galaxy S9 and start playing new content immediately.

There is a small con with Popcornflix, and that is that the video quality just isn’t that great. It’s essentially DVD quality, so you won’t be getting any 4K resolution out of this app. However, it’s still all fine to watch, and you’ll be able to see the picture clearly, just not in the high definition that you might’ve hoped.

We really like Crackle because it’s an easy to use streaming service that’s put on by Sony. Sony has had some trouble getting it up and running with licensing content and all that, but there’s still plenty for folks to watch. Just don’t be expecting a library as big as Netflix or Hulu once you download it and activate it on your Galaxy S9. You’ll be able to watch shows like Seinfeld and movies like Annabelle or The Karate Kid. There’s plenty more to choose from, but that’s just a small taste at what you’re looking at.

Cracke is completely free to use — all you need is that activation code for the device that you’re using it on. Download it at the link below.

Yidio might be last up on our list, but it’s a great way to find where you can watch your favorite movies and TV shows for free. Yidio has a library of one million titles and counting that it can access, and will tell you exactly where you watch that content for free, or at least for as cheaply as possible.

With so many titles in their library, you can search for almost anything and get a good result for where you can watch that title for free. The neat thing is that you can download the Yidio app from the Google Play Store as well — it’s not something that you have to sideload onto your Galaxy S9.

Don’t want to pay for movies and TV shows on your Galaxy S9 anymore? Then the apps we listed above will help you do just that. Your best options are easily Netflix, Crackle, and Tubi TV, but Yidio and Popcornflix are able to fill in the holes with the content that those other services just don’t offer.

Do you have a favorite Android app that you use for watching movies and TV shows for free? Let us know what it is in the comments section below.
