Have you ever wished that you could finally find a decent free movie streaming site, once and for all? If you are anything like me, then this is a desire that you have just about every few months. It can be very difficult to find a good site for streaming free movies – especially if we are talking about one that is consistent, safe, and legit. This is the rare trifecta that is necessary before we can even begin to think about donning a website the best free movie streaming site there is.
As far as consistency is concerned … I am sure that you can probably relate. Perhaps you have found a good free movie streaming site in the past. Maybe you did not use it every day, maybe you did not use it even once a week – most of these free movie streaming sites are at their best when they are depended on in a pinch, and it is not every day that you will require their services. Nevertheless, you had a free movie streaming site to turn to when necessary, say, for a good 6 or 7 months. But then, one day, when you need it most, you go to visit your free movie streaming site of choice only to find that it has disappeared, just vanished, or it is no longer active!
This is one of the worst-case scenarios when it comes to these kinds of sites. And, unfortunately, this happens all the time. There are always free movie sites that are going under and new ones that are going up. What’s more, it can be impossible to predict when a site is going to dissipate like that. It can also be daunting and difficult to find a replacement.
Why is it such a pain to find a replacement free movie streaming site when your go-to goes up in smoke? Well, that is because A.) safety is a big concern with a lot of free movie streaming sites out there, and B.) hand in hand with safety, most of the time, is legitimacy. You may already know it well, but free movie streaming sites do not exactly have a reputation for being the safest, most above-board sites on the web.
Frankly, some of these sites can be downright dangerous. One of the reasons that some people shy away from free streaming sites is due to the fact that they usually, in lieu of charging money, rely heavily on advertisements … and, no, we’re not talking your harmless (if annoying) YouTube ads that interrupt your video now and then and force you to watch them. The ads that I am referring to are much more insidious
Popup ads, pop-under ads, inappropriate and shady marginal ads – these and others are the kinds of invasive and distasteful ads that are commonly associated with free movie streaming sites. It would be one thing, though, if these ads were merely annoyances that got in the way of the full enjoyment of your movie viewing experience. Sadly, this is not the case. These ads are also commonly loaded with malware, trojans, trackers, and various other malicious dangers to your computer, data, and identity. So, as you can see, vetting your streaming sites before using them can be incredibly important – you have come to the right place; I would never even consider reviewing a site that I have deemed to be dangerous in any way.
Then, of course, there is the matter of legitimacy. It may come as no surprise to learn that not every free movie streaming site is, indeed, a free movie streaming site. Some sites like to pose as if they allow users to stream movies for free, but then will require you to purchase a ‘premium’ membership before allowing you to watch anything. Others, still, just won’t work, which, of course, leads me to believe that they are not free movie streaming sites at all, but traps meant to infect your computer with various forms of malware.
So, as you can see, finding the best free movie streaming site is not as simple as one would think. However, you have definitely come to the right place. I will always give you an in-depth, honest, and thorough review of every site that I take on. And today that site is called Nya Filmer.
As far as I can tell, I am pretty sure that Nya Filmer is Swedish for New Movies, giving this free movie streaming site a fairly straightforward name. Is the site itself as straightforward and upfront as its name implies? Could it truly be as simple as finding new movies on this site and then streaming them for free? Well, let’s take a closer look at this site and everything it has to offer in order to find out, shall we?
When I first visited Nya Filmer, I was a little bit taken aback by the way its splash page was designed. Whereas most streaming sites would cut straight to the chase and try to wow visitors right off the bat with the impressive library of movies and maybe TV series that they have available to stream for free, Nya Filmer does not go in this direction.
Instead, you will be greeted by a largely black page. In the middle of this negative space will sit a search bar, enabling you to quickly and conveniently search whatever movie it is that you are in the mood for. Otherwise, you can click on “Go to Home Page,” or “I’m Feeling Lucky” for a Google-inspired random search result – could be a fun way to discover your next favorite film, who knows?
For the purposes of our review today, though, let’s go to the home page to start. Now Nya Filmer starts to look more like the streaming site layout that I am familiar with. Below the site menu bar, you will find an automatically side-scrolling plater of featured movies – if any of these catch your attention, well, no need to browse the rest of the site for now. If not, you can scroll down, where you will find a gallery of recently added movies. I would have preferred, personally, an infinity scroll, I think, for a site like this, but Nya Filmer lets you browse their recently added titles by clicking through, page after page (of which, as of the time of this review, there are 586),
Unfortunately, Nya Filmer is going to require that you disable your ad blocker before allowing you to stream movies for free. Do so at your own risk. I don’t get the impression that these ads are harmful but, then again, you never really know until you run a virus scan.
Content and Features
So, naturally, Nya Filmer provides its users with plenty of new films. But the site also lets you stream classic movies and films from all genres – action, comedy, drama, horror, sci fi, history, crime, etc. Free movies are not all that you will find on Nya Filmer, though … the site also has a sizeable archive of free TV series streaming on-demand. No matter what kind of entertainment you happen to be in the mood for, Nya Filmer will have you covered.
The browsing mechanism on this site is pretty good, too, so long as you don’t mind having to search for it a little bit. From the dropdown menu, click on Movies or Series (whichever category you prefer), and you will be able to browse, filter, and sort titles however you see fit. Filter by genre(s), video quality (1080p or HD), languages, or years released. This makes it as easy as it should be to find precisely the movie or TV series you want in no time at all.
Regarding the ads … there is a way to get around them. Even though Nya Filmer requires users to disable their ad blocker, you can donate to the site and, in return, receive an ad-free experience. If you end up really liking this site, it may be something to consider.
Mobile and Desktop Experience
I was not surprised to see that Nya Filmer does not have a mobile app available (sites like these seldom do). However, I was pleased to discover that the mobile version of the site is fully capable and user friendly. You should have no issues streaming free movies from your mobile web browser.
