Quick Look: Popcornflix offers hundreds of movies, all free, and no registration required. You won't find many Hollywood blockbusters here - most of these films are straight-to-DVD or made-for-TV releases - but you should still be able to find hours of entertainment among the many available titles. And if to watch ad-free many videos can be rented for $0.99 each through your Roku account (you will need to have a payment method on file).
Films are available in more than three dozen categories. You'll find the usual genres like Documentaries, Comedy, Drama, and Action, but there are also more unusual categories like Nostalgia, Fic To Flick, Screaming Now, and All Time Scares. Content isn't limited to movies, either. Look for videos under Extreme Sports, RockStar, and National Geographic.
If you're looking for a specific title, you'll find a title search function at the top of the channel's main screen. That's also where you will also find settings that let you turn continuous play on or off. And an added benefit for hearing-impaired viewers is the availability of closed-captioning, which can be enable at the start play, or can can be turned on and off during play by pressing the * key on your remote.
