Stressing over the final season of “Game of Thrones”? Wondering where you will get binge-worthy shows after “The Walking Dead” disappears from your weekly schedule? If you enjoy getting caught up in a series and are worried about filling the voids that your favorites are leaving behind, no worries. We have a variety of websites that offer plenty of free streaming content to have you back in binging mode in no time.
When searching for your favorite things to watch, the big players that come to mind are Hulu, Amazon Prime and Netflix. Not sure what to watch on these sites? Here is Kim’s tip on how to choose.
In addition to these providers, there are plenty of other excellent sites that offer unique content that may catch your attention such as Philo, Sling TV and Fubo TV, but those require subscriptions. If you are not interested in paying for streaming services, check out these lesser-known sites that offer quality content for free, although they are supported by ads.
How to stream classic TV series
Sony Crackle, owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment, is a free streaming service that features a library of TV shows including classics such as “Seinfeld,” “Heroes” and “The Shield.” The site also carries a variety of original programs such as “Startup” and “Snatch.”
You can view Sony Crackle with your desktop browser, stream to your television (with supported devices) and on mobile devices with the Sony Crackle app.
Streaming options for children
As a parent, finding quality streaming content for kids is essential and often frustrating. Tubi.tv has you covered with its extensive video-on-demand collection of children’s shows including “My Little Pony,” “Pokémon,” and “Transformers.” And, Tubi recently announced it intends to grow its selection this year, so be on the lookout for even a greater variety.
Tubi’s library includes movies, TV shows, docuseries and plenty of options for grown-ups. Tubi’s content is ad-supported, so if you don’t mind commercials before, during and after your free content, you won’t mind Tubi.

With comedy, action and drama as well as other genre options, Pluto.tv has your movie needs covered with live streaming or video-on-demand service. Pluto’s content is supported by ads (someone has to pay for the content), so plan your trips to the ‘fridge and bathroom accordingly.
