How to Stream Movies with PS4

The PS4 stands for Play Station 4 which is the best one for movie lovers. It not only act as a Blu-ray player and also allow you to use streaming services like Netflix directly from the console. It has a complete host of fantastic movies  available for you to digitally purchase or rent directly from the PlayStation store. Recently, we found out by simply doing re-watch of all the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though, it is not the cheapest way to watch different movies in a row especially due to the fact that you have to buy certain movies because the PS Store won’t let you rent them.

While I fully intend to purchase all of the MCU movies once a complete collection is released. At that time, I really don’t have too many options other than trying to point out how I could watch some of the films for free directly from my PS4. So, I started doing a bit of research and ultimately found a few different ways to do it, and most of them are accessed through the one PlayStation 4 app which doesn’t really get used a whole lot… the PS4 web browser.

Google Your Movie

The first step is to simply use the search bar and type “(Movie title) free online”. You’ll get an overwhelming amount of results from a variety of different sites, and the best way to find one that’ll work for you is to simply start clicking and see what works and what doesn’t. You may have to exit out of more than a few pop-ups, but I very quickly and easily found movies this way.


This is one of the biggest free movie sites and will often be at the top of your search results if you use the previous method. It’s usually a safe go-to and will almost always have the movie you’re looking for on the very first page that you land on, saving you from having to click through a bunch of different (and potentially dangerous) links. Watch out for pop-ups when you press “play.”


Another site similar to Putlocker, Movie-Tube has a wide range of popular films available for you to watch at a moment’s notice. When you are pressing the “play”, you can run into a pop-up but holding Circle should immediately close it out. Make sure to press the right video as this site has been known to confuse some visitors with a lot of fake links.


Suppose, if you are having a lot of digital movies on your PC and want to watch them from your PS4 without doing any sort of wired file transfer, you can simply download the free app “Plex”. It will helps you to watch movies in your own library on any device that has the app downloaded, and the PS4 app works wonderfully. This is perfect for tor-renting movies on your computer and then watching them directly from your PlayStation.
