Tubi TV

We’re looking at Tubi TV first on our list, as it’s easily the best way to watch free movies and TV shows on the Google Pixel 3 XL. Tubi TV can be downloaded straight from the Google Play Store, then you create an account, and can start watching your favorite movies and shows almost immediately. There’s no credit card information required! On top of that, Tubi TV has an endless amount of content available on it — it’ll keep you busy for hours on end.

It might surprise you to see Netflix on this list, but what might surprise you even more so is that there are a ton of folks that don’t pay for Netflix. As you probably already know, Netflix allows you to sign up for a 1-month free trial before committing to the service. There are a lot of people that cancel their subscription before the trial ends, and then make a new account to take advantage of another 1-month trial. The other option is to watch out for a promotion from your carrier — they’ll often offer a free month of Netflix with a new line or phone purchase.

Popcornflix comes up next, and we really like it because there aren’t any subscription fees. Instead, it uses advertisements to support the free content it offers. That said, you’ll be met with an ad every few minutes while you’re watching a film, but you won’t have to pay for Popcornflix straight out of your pocket. You do still have to create an account to watch Popcornflix, but you don’t have to enter in any credit card information or anything.

We really like this service because, even though it is free to use, it still has plenty of content available to watch. The only real “con” to Popcornflix is that the video quality isn’t as good as it could be — you’re really only getting quality close to a DVD, unfortunately.

Crackle is a great option to stream movies and TV shows for free. It’s actually an option that you probably haven’t heard of before, but this one is actually put together by Sony itself. All you need to do is download Crackle on your Google Pixel 3 XL, get an activation code from Sony, and you’re good to go. It’s that simple!

There are just a couple of things to keep in mind, though. Crackle isn’t necessarily a great replacement for getting rid of your paid subscription services. This is because Crackle doesn’t have a whole lot of content on it. There’s content, but not nearly as much as, say, Netflix or Hulu. You’ll still be able to watch many of your favorites — Crackle does have things like The Karate Kid and the entire series of Seinfeld available.

Yidio comes in as last up on our list, but it’s a great way to find out where you can watch your favorite films and TV shows for free. Yidio isn’t a streaming service itself, but it is an aggregator — that means that you can search for a film or show, and Yidio will pull up where you can find it to watch for free, or at least at the cheapest price point. Yidio has access to a database with millions of different titles, so you’ll be able to find almost anything with Yidio.

There are plenty of legal options on the Google Play Store to watch free movies and TV shows on the Google Play Store. However, which one is the right way to go for you? If you’re looking to get the service with the most content, playing the Netflix free trial subscription game is a great way to go; however, both Tubi TV and Popcornflix are great alternatives if you don’t want to put that much work into watching something.
