Welcome to Indiemoviesonline.com
Now that you’ve found us, don’t forget to bookmark the site. And if you haven’t already, please take a moment to sign up for a free account. Registration allows you to comment on stories and post in the forums. We can also send you an email each week with details of the new films we have licensed, that you can watch free on the site.
Speaking of licensing, we are often asked if the site is legal and above board (probably because it all seems too good to be true). The answer, you will be pleased to know, is yes indeedy! You can see indiemoviesonline.com listed on the Industry Trust website, a coalition of legal online distributors like Xbox, Apple, Blockbusters, the BBC and Sky.
Indiemoviesonline.com has a proper distribution license from the individual rights holders to show every film you see on the website. Indiemoviesonline.com is proud to be 100% legal and official.
Similarly, we won’t ask you to fill out bogus surveys, or sign up for a paid-for account to get faster access or anything of the kind. Nor will you ever have to break the law, as pirate and file sharing sites do.
Every film on indiemoviesonline.com is free to watch. We don’t charge at all. Nor do we require you to sign up (but if you do, we really appreciate it).

Frequently asked questions
Q. Is there a limit to the amount of free movies I can watch on Indie?
A. You can watch as many films, anytime, as many times as you want!
Q. How can this service be free?
A. We show advertising on the site, in front of the movies – and this generates revenue, which is paid to rights holders as a royalty.
Q. Can I watch the films on my TV?
A. Yes, it’s entirely possible. If you are using a newer flat screen TV, you can just connect your computer via a VGA or HDMI cable.
Q. How do I watch the latest [Insert name of current blockbuster showing at the cinema] on this site?
A. Well, we don’t have those movies – because the rights are not yet available for ad-supported (free) streaming.
Q. But I see them on lots of other sites…
A. Well, those sites are not licensed. Granted most internet users don’t care, well apart from the ones who get a massive fine, or get their computers infected or unwittingly become slaves to spam. What we can offer is to provide a safe and secure way to watch films online for free, and legally. And when there are more sites like ours around, then the illegal ones won’t be needed. Until then, we say: don’t spoil the wonder that is film – go see new ones at the cinema and support the industry. And watch older ones streamed at better quality on indiemoviesonline.com.
First off, the films only play if you are living in the UK, USA, Canada or Australia. We will be adding new countries soon.
