Did you know there is a secret untapped and little known source of full length movies on the web? No i didn’t either until i heard about free to watch public domain movies.
These are films that are usually of a vintage nature (that means a few years old to you and me), or sometimes more modern films that have slipped out of copyright and entered the public domain. Alternatively sometimes the film’s owners decide to contribute it for public consumption and they forgo any royalties.
This means that no one owns copyright on the films and you can watch them for free. So if you can look past the age of the movies, then you get an amazing number of classic full-length motion picture films, b-movies, cartoons, documentaries and other videos for no cost.
It’s paradise city for those of you cutting the cord, and as a bonus many can be downloaded for offline viewing.
You can watch most of these movies from any connected hardware that can run a browser, and from anywhere in the world. From smartphones, tablets, computers, Macs and streaming boxes. No fees, software, or registration is needed to download or play the movie.
The only slight problem is determining whether a movie is out of copyright. You can sometimes gauge it from the year the film was made. For instance any film made before the mid 1920’s will usually be copyright free. But many films made up to 1964 are also free to use,view or download.
But the good news is that you don’t need to worry about copyright details, you can just visit one of the many websites that cater to free public domain movies. We have compiled a list of the best public domain movie websites here.
