Top 3 Putlocker alternatives when it’s down

Sharing is caring!


In this post-modern era of technology and the internet, we no longer have to visit a theater and pay for the movie tickets to watch a recent flick. There are plenty of websites where you enjoy a recently released blockbuster, and that’s not illegal. Yes, I know that you started to think of putlocker and sites like that, but I am not talking about those sites that dwell in the gray area of illegal movie streaming. You don’t have to visit those sites, and you don’t have to compromise with the low-quality audiovisuals that those shady sites offer with their pirated collections. I’m talking about high-quality full HD or Blu ray movies that you can watch right now in your home, and those are 100% legal. So, without further wasting your time, I’m jumping into today’s topic about how to watch movies online free, yet legally.

  1. Hotstar: Hotstar is a video on demand, primarily a Hindi entertainment website that belongs to Star India. Now, people outside India will have to access Hotstar using a VPN. They have a vast collection of free Hindi movies and TV shows such as Drishyam, Jolly LLB 2, and Masterchef India. But the entertainment doesn’t stop there, and you can also watch live TV, sports, comedy series and news. Furthermore, it also has movies in other languages, including English, Telugu, Malayalam, etc. The latest content on Hotstar cannot be downloaded, but some of the older movies can be. Also, their apps on the App Store and Play Store are very well-designed and can give you the perfect on-the-go viewing experience. The Premium membership will surely open up a lot more options, but there is enough free content to make you come back to Hotstar again and again.
  2. Retrovision: The second website on our list is Retrovision, which is a platform for all those who love the classics. It has a great collection of some amazing classic movies and TV shows such as Sherlock Holmes and Godzilla. The best thing about Retrovision is its genre-specific menu. This categorization makes it very easy to browse through the website. Another great thing is that this website can be accessed from anywhere in the world as it’s not a location-specific service. Now, it’s a streaming site and therefore doesn’t allow you to download content. And it has an Android app as well, which is called Classic UHF. You should definitely try Retrovision if you’re a fan of Classics.
  3. PopcornFlix: Coming to the 3rd website, PopcornFlix. First of all, let me take a moment to appreciate the name of the website. PopcornFlix is such a cool name that it has won my heart with the name itself. And it has stayed true to its name as it’s got plentiful amazing movies and tv series such as The Adventures of Tintin and the Paddington Bear. The genres include action, drama, comedy, romance, sci-fi, and many more. You get the point, it covers almost every genre possible. Now, its owned by Screen Media Ventures and even though it was initially available only in the US and Canada, it recently launched in 36 more countries. Sadly, most of its content is still not available in many countries, so a VPN would help you for sure.
