Everybody likes to get something without paying for it and the contentment is doubled when it’s from a firm like Apple. We’re going to help you get access to great free movies on Apple TV but not to get your hopes too high. These don’t immediately release latest theater flicks. But you will find classic shows such as Seinfeld, public domain flicks, documentaries, indie, international films, and much more. Check out below our list of the best apps to watch movies on Apple TV.
The 10 Best Free Apps to watch Quality Movies on Apple TV
The apps mentioned below feature movies from the public domain which means that they’re free to download by the public. Additionally, apps that feature classic films don’t need to resort to money to pay for content. However, latest content released on Apple TV does require a fee. Which is why the apps below such as Crackle and Tubi TV offer superb content. But with short advertisements in between to pay for the service.
1. Tubi TV – Watch Movies & TV Shows
Tubi TV streams new anime the day after it’s released in Japan so that’s great news for anime lovers and it has surprisingly latest movies on Apple TV for an app. Get this app from here.
2. Crackle – Movies & TV
This app sports those short bursts of advertisements we mentioned earlier but the ads are much lesser as opposed to what you’d see on network TV. It’s much more suitable for modern audiences featuring some popular movies of the decade like Rudy, Ali, The Legend of Zorro, Roxanne, Birdy, The Net, The China Syndrome, About Last Night, Crash and La Bamba etc. Get this app from App Store.
3. Free Classic Movies
This is a great app for sifting through the true revolutionary classics like Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps, Charlie Chaplin silent movies, film noir and even cartoons. Download this app for free.
4. Rakuten Viki: TV Dramas & Movies
You can categorize your content in this app featuring international and national channels by choosing your country. Although Viki itself has more content related to China, Korea, Japan, and India. There aren’t any advertisements as far as my own experience is concerned. Get this app from here.

5. Public Domain Movies
I personally love this app because it has over a whopping 100 movies that are in the public domain and here’s the best part. You can sort by director, actor, writer, and year, as well as by genre. That’s a game changer and makes everything so easy to search movies on Apple TV. You can download this app from TV App Store.
6. Popcornflix – Free Movies
Another great app for free movies is Popcornflix. This app has full-length movies that will make you make you cry, laugh, scare, or inspire you to hug the person you love. It allows you to watch documentaries, foreign films, and unique original web series. Popcornflix is the most user-friendly movie destination on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. You can download this app for free here.
7. Show Box & TV Movie Hub Cinema – Anime, Gaming & Fandom TV
Show Box has free anime, movies and tv shows which are ad-supported. And what makes it unique are the independent or foreign-language originals. These haven’t had a theatrical release or haven’t been shown on regular TV channels. Get this app from here.
8. Pluto TV – Live TV and Movies
Pluto TV simulates a cable TV service. Instead of movies/shows on demand, it has a viewing guide with channels, with specific programs streaming at specific times and viewing guide is categorically organized e.g. the Memory Lane category including channels like Drive-In Movies, Classic Movies etc. Download this app for free.
