Most people today use streaming services like Amazon prime, Netflix, and Hulu to watch their movies and TV shows. That’s a great option as long as you have a subscription and don’t need to go offline.
If you’re looking to download your movies or TV shows for free onto your Android device locally to watch later, you might want to switch from a streaming service to one of the following Android apps.
These apps allow you to watch your favorite television offline and for free. Pretty useful when you’re on the road, or if you forgot to renew your Netflix subscription.
1.) Cinema HD
Best for the Absence of annoying pop-up ads inside the app.
Cinema HD is a popular online streaming app that also allows you to download movies and watch them locally on your Android device. Its main advantage over other similar apps is the absence of annoying pop-up ads that you have to get through to watch your favorite films.
Cinema HD supports HD quality, but you can choose any resolution when downloading the films. There’s also plenty of foreign language movies that you can watch with subtitles. The only downside is that Cinema HD isn’t always available to download from the Play Store, so you might have to download the APK file and then install it on your smartphone manually.
2.) Free HD Movies
Best for: A wide selection of titles and the app works fairly well.
This app has a good choice of new and older movies and the quality of the movies is very good. You’ll also see the app has a lot of high ratings, which is pretty rare if you look at most of the free movie-watching apps on the Google Play store.
Importantly, you can download any of the movies onto your device for offline viewing. There is also a nice search function that will help you find movies to watch.
Almost all content on Free HD Movies is available in HD quality and has subtitles for a great number of languages.
Best for: Integration with other services, like YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Instagram, and Soundcloud.
VidMate is a free movie streaming & downloading app where you can find most of the latest movies as well as the classics. Two things about this app that you have to bear in mind: The selection of titles is different depending on your region, and the fact that VidMate isn’t available on the Google Play Store. So, you’ll have to download the APK file from the site before you can use the service.
The feature that makes VidMate stand out among the other apps on this list is the ability to watch and download content from other platforms, including YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, as well as Instagram, and SoundCloud.
