Streaming free movies on PS4 & PS3 with PlayStation apps is one of the best ways to use your console for watching all those movies you’ve been torrenting on your PC.
We all know that a PS4 allows users to take advantage of services like Netflix, HBO GO, HULU, etc as well as renting or buying movies directly from PlayStation Store. The problem is that this is far from FREE, and you’ll end up spending a lot of money, especially if you’re the “marathon” kind of people.
But that’s not a reason for not taking advantage of your PS4 Blue Ray’s capacities, and using them for streaming your favorite movies.
Best Apps for Streaming Free Movies on PS4
Plex is a really easy way to stream movies from your computer to your PlayStation. This way, you don’t have to limit what you can watch the content available on the app but use the content you’ve downloaded.
Plex works by connecting every device in the room that has the app downloaded. So, simply go to the PlayStation browser, search for “Plex app” and download it on your PS4. Then, register on the Plex server in your computer.
Once you’ve done both steps, run the app and use your library for reproducing the free movie on your PS4.
Crackle is another good way to watch HD films on PS4. As simple as going to the PlayStation Store and typing “Crackle” on the search bar you’ll be able to watch blockbuster movies and original content. The disadvantage of this app is that you will be limited to the content it offers. Movies are available in HD 720p.
Similar to Plex you simply sign in and can enjoy your personal content wherever you go. By downloading it to your PlayStation, you’ll find out that it works perfectly as an Emby client.
With this app, you’ll be able to synchronize your content in the cloud so, when you run it on any other device, you can access that content by signing in.
All you have to do is downloading the Emby app on your PlayStation while you register on the online server right in your computer. Once you’re done, simply run the app on your computer, synchronize the content and therefore run the app on the PS4 and select the content you want to watch from your own library.
This app is very similar to Crackle but with a wider selection of content. Even though it includes blockbuster movies, it’s mainly directed to tv channels. The good news is that as we all know, lots of TV channels also have a great selection of movies so you will find a good variety of free movies for PS4 by installing Pluto TV.
Simply go to the PlayStation Store and download Pluto TV also for free. Another good advantage of this app is that all shows, movies, Live TV, and content, in general, are available in HD 1080p.
With these Playstation apps you can watch free movies on PS4 anytime you want.
