You’re stuck at home and have already scrolled through all of Netflix and you don’t want to dish out the extra cash to stream more entertainment. That’s OK. You don’t need to.
With just your computer, there are plenty of free sites where you can legally stream more things to watch. Take the time to introduce your kids to some of the old favorites or step out of your own comfort zone and watch something different.
IMDB TV: This site isn’t just for looking up information on your favorite celebrities. IMDB has plenty to binge for everyone, such as ’80s dramas “Dallas,” “Rockford Files” and “Columbo” that you can binge, kids movies’ like “Scooby Doo,” “The Smurfs,” and “Shrek,” classic movies such as “Bull Durham,” and documentaries such as “Craigslist Joe.” IMDB also has its own original programming so you might just find your new favorite show.
Tubi: All free, all the time on Tubi, where the kids can watch “Ella Enchanted,” “Rugrats the Movie,” and “All Dogs Go to Heaven” (we won’t tell if you watch, too). After the kids go to bed, you can watch horror flicks like “Annabelle,” and “Wolves,” or watch some cutthroat cooking competitions like “Hell’s Kitchen.”
The wee little ones even have their own preschool section.
Go back in time to watch “Father Knows Best,” “The Commish,” “Groucho Marx,” “The Weird Al Show,” or the family favorite “The Donna Reed Show.” My favorite part is the “Not on Netflix” section.
Hoopla Digital: With your library card, you have access to so many free movies and free television shows through Hoopla Digital. From Nickelodeon’s “Paw Patrol” or “iCarly” to musical movies such as “Into the Woods” or behind-the-scenes like “Hamilton: One Shot to Broadway.”
These are just a few and we’ll add to this list. What is your favorite way to stream free, and legal, entertainment?
