Top 6 Free iPhone Apps to Watch TV Shows and Movies Online

[sd]Have you ever wanted to watch movies or TV shows online on your iPhone ? Well, there are very few iPhone apps and websites which are offering movies and TV shows online for free, and I think this is because of lack of flash support in iPhone.

But if you are using a WiFi connection on your iPhone, there are few websites and apps which will allow you to watch free movies, TV shows and lots of other cool stuff related to videos. And the best part of these choices that they are totally offering a legal way to watch them online.

So, in this article, I am compiling a list of 6 best apps and websites for iPhone that allows you to watch movies, TV shows or videos online for free.

1) B-Movies :B-Movies is an free app to browse the Internet Archive’s Moving Images library of free movies, films, and videos. New version allows you to browse the movie archive through Edge/3G but you till need Wi-Fi connection to watch movies.

You can alos bookmark your favorite videos, search the categories and also choose videos from Low, Medium and High Quality basis.


2) Hollywood Pocket : This is another cool website which allows you to watch movies online although the collection is not big but surely ahead in terms of video quality. You have to visit the site from the iPhone Safari browser and choose the list of categories which contains News, Action, Comedy, Sci-Fi/Horror, Drama and Documentaries.

You can pause, fast forward or rewind the movie as these movies are in Quicktime format. It has some good old movies collections in its categories. You will get the time details of Run Time of a video in front of the movie cover.

    Hey that is a great list!! Another one that is amazing for watching TV you already subscribe to is the DISH Remote Access with DISH Network. Being a DISH employee I can honestly say that this would be the best way watching TV on my iPhone. I watch live TV and my DVR recordings. Check it out guys.

    Also keep an eye out for a XBMC app — I heard it should be coming soon. XBMC is a pretty cool piece of light software that scrapes tv streaming from the internet and aggregates them in one place, also by topic since users often contribute plugins based on topics.

    Do you have list of free apps which offers hindi moviews (Bollywood as well). Current listed apps only allow hollywood movies.

    I can see that except that Justin tv for which we have to 10$ all others are not that useful, Apple sure has to give some permissions this just sucks that we cannot watch tv in iPhone :(

    Nice set of Apps. But watching a movie on Phone is really tedious. I prefer doing so on Computer.
