Viewster offers a broad variety of movies and TV shows to stream for free. This is sustained through advertising but if you’re not too troubled by sporadic interruptions then you can access a large amount of entertainment for free. They also offer a free mobile app for Apple and Android devices, making it a useful tool if you’re in transit, however there are no download options so you’ll have to make sure you’ve a strong connection if you want to watch anything.
Viewster is rising in popularity and it’s simple to see why. Although you won’t necessarily find the most recent or hottest movie releases on this site there are plenty of independent movies and shows to seek out, many of which are well produced. The variety is exciting, with anything from anime to foreign cinema, slasher horror to educational documentaries. The site is well considered and finding what you need is simple. You can browse a genre or perform a search, although the search feature could be better designed to help you find more specific elements of a video. If you watch a movie in several parts, or a TV series, then the website supplies quick links to the following episode, although we would also prefer to see recommendations based on your existing viewing preferences. Nevertheless, you can review movies by giving them a star rating and you can type up a review for other users to read. This can be very useful because it allows you to get a good idea of how a show has been appreciated before you decide to watch it.
The quality is generally quite high, predominantly for the very popular movies. Some videos have non-English subtitles which can be frustrating as you cannot remove them, but they can be ignored. You also need to wait for a short period before each movie starts and you may have to put up with a few rounds of advertisements, but this is all provided for free so we can’t complain too much. The website seems eager to improve and asks for your opinions, which is encouraging to see. They also provide a searchable FAQ which offered most of the answers to questions we had, but you can submit a support ticket if you still have problems.
We were happy to find that the site offers trailers and additional information on movie releases. This shows that it’s designed by genuine movie fans and isn’t just a lazy attempt at getting you to watch adverts. There is also some interesting reading to be done here if you’re not sure on what you want to watch. As well as this you can develop an unique profile, so if you discover that you share similar movie preferences to another member you could follow their recommendations, or vice-versa.
Viewster.com probably won’t have everything you’re looking for but it provides a very good range of Asian movies and TV shows that you might not have even heard of. It’s fairly user-friendly and, above all, it won’t cost you a cent! There’s really nothing to lose other than some of your time, so we recommend at least taking a look at Viewster to see if it can make some movie magic.
