There are plenty of free streaming websites on the internet, but not every website is safe. When streaming online, you must take care of your privacy along with data and identity. The streaming world is filled with websites waiting to pounce on you. Forget streaming and clicking on an ad, even a mere visit can be a terrible idea. On the other hand, there are websites that are extremely safe and are designed with the intention of delivering the best service.
One such website which has been the safest streaming site over the past few years is Vumoo. If you’re looking to watch movies and tv shows online or download the content, you’ve likely heard about Vumoo. This beautifully designed website is no Netflix, but it sure can offer you quality content for absolutely free.
Given that every single premium streaming service starts at charging $7-10 per month, the streaming service in itself can bundle down to reach $40-50/per month. And that certainly surpasses many people’s monthly budgets. Thus, if you’re looking to reduce the cost or cut it off completely, you need to rely on free streaming platforms such as Vumoo. Sure, it’s not a legitimate place for streaming or downloading movies but in this day and age, nothing comes for free. So, you can either pay the price or stop moral policing. The choice is yours.
What is Vumoo?
Vumoo is an online streaming site that allows you to find an endless movie and tv series collection. You can stream the content and even download it based upon your preference. Vumoo, as a platform, falls in a grey area because it doesn’t host the content. It’s merely a registry or a content directory where you’ll find links to other websites that host the content. For instance, if you search for a title on Vumoo, it’ll scan the internet and provide you with quite a few quality links where you can watch the content. Since Vumoo isn’t hosting the content, it isn’t in trouble because of DMCA Policy.
Why should you stream on Vumoo?
There are plenty of reasons why I like to stream on Vumoo. The website feels safe and doesn’t engage in any malpractices such as hosting malware, adware or any other virus. But that’s not the only benefit of streaming, there are plenty of other benefits such as:
Searching content via a credible engine
Vumoo is basically a video search engine where you stream movies and tv shows online. You can even download your favorite content. Vumoo is able to put together quality links by trusting powerful content providers such as Vidbux, Putlocker, Filenuke, Vidxden, MovShare, MegaVideo, Vidbull, Vidbux, Vidto, GorillaVid, SockShare, Movreel, and Videozed. With Vumoo, you’re practically dealing with the original uploaders when downloading the content, Vumoo is just providing you the information.
The main reason why users are attracted to the platform is that it is free. You can enjoy your favorite movies and tv shows without worrying about paying a dime. It’s an imperative factor that allures the customers towards free streaming. There are many viewers who can’t afford to pay $40-50/month for entertainment. Furthermore, the content library on such free streaming sites is much bigger as compared to premium sites.
Unlike many other free streaming services, Vumoo doesn’t require you to register. You don’t have to give any data to the website and you can stream for free. This makes streaming safe if you use a VPN. No registration allows you to access the content directly without any delay. Just head over to the official page, choose a title you want to watch and you’re good to go. You’ll find all the latest movies and tv shows and you can watch all of them without signing up.
If you’ve been streaming on Vumoo for a while, you have to agree that it does pack a clean design. The white/black/red color combination reminds you of Netflix. Though the UI/UX is not on the same level, you have to remember that this one’s a free website. The content arrangement, layout, and thumbnails are clean and thus browsing and navigating across the website feel seamless.
Is streaming on Vumoo safe?
Yes, on the surface it does look safe. However, that’s from the safety and security aspect. Every time you stream, your IP address becomes accessible. So, if the regulatory authorities and the original content owners want to crack down on illegal streamers, it won’t be as safe as it appears. Since Vumoo isn’t hosting the content, it won’t claim any responsibility and when streaming or downloading content, you’re dealing with pirate sites, so in a way, it’s never safe to stream such websites.
How to access Vumoo?
You can access Vumoo in multiple ways. First, you can search for the term ‘Vumoo’, and you’ll probably find the website on the first page of your search result. Second, you can use the following link: Vumoo to access the website directly.
Before you access the website, just make sure to use an active VPN. You cannot trust a free streaming website with your IP address. A good VPN will help protect your identity as well as your data and device from hackers and regulatory authorities. Moreover, a VPN will allow you to access the platform in case the website is blocked in your country.
Vumoo looks like a ripped-off version of Netflix. The black/red/white combination does flow evenly throughout the website. I mean it terms of UI/UX of a free streaming site, you shouldn’t expect any more than what this website has to offer. The menus are designed well along with the homepage banners. Navigating around the website is quite pleasing and there are no intrusive ads.
The header section on the website has a black background with the logo on the left. Besides the logo, you’ll find a search bar and two options – ‘Movies’, and ‘TV Series’. I would’ve liked this section to be denser but the developers have taken a minimal approach.
The hero section looks exhilarating. There are three well-designed banners which grab your attention instantaneously. These are optimized for all devices such that they adapt as per your screen resolution. Apart from the banners, you’ll also find supporting content in the form of title, summary and CTA button. Under this section, you’ll start seeing thumbnails.
The body section of the website is filled with movies and tv show thumbnails. There are as many as four rows in the body section highlighting the top content on the website. There are eight banners in every row and that’s the layout approach on every page.
The footer section has no navigation options. There is a copyright disclaimer towards the left and alternate streaming platforms towards the right. Apart from that, there is no crucial information.
The inner page that is the most appealing is the streaming page. I clicked on Bohemian Rhapsody and entered the inner page. Apart from the video player, there is crucial information such as ‘Server’, ‘Title’, ‘Summary’, ‘Genres’, ‘Directors’, ‘Writers’, ‘Release Year’, ‘Actors’, ‘Countries’, ‘Runtime’, and ‘IMDb rating’. Under these options, you’ll also find the related keywords.
While the homepage isn’t the most appealing one in terms of titles, be rest assured that this website is packed with quality content. There are more than 5000+ movies and tv shows on this platform. You’ll find some of the most popular content titles including ‘Bull’, ‘Tribal’, ‘Tommy’, ‘Murder’, ‘Twenties’, ‘Young Sheldon’, ‘Sweet Karma’, ‘Indebted’, and ‘Station 19’.
I had a decent time streaming One Direction: Where We Are on this platform. The stream was steady and there were no hiccups. Many times, the website redirected me to a third party website which required me to log in but I didn’t fall for any bait. Thus, the moment, you’re redirected, just close the new window and try clicking on the play button again. If it doesn’t work, just drop the website and don’t stream on it.
Suggestions I have for Vumoo
While I can tolerate ads, I certainly cannot handle the redirects. Especially when I’m streaming on my mobile device, the moment I get redirected I just close the session. I suggest the developers work this out so Vumoo can become a mainstay for free streamers.
If you’re looking for a clean website where you can watch your favorite movies and tv shows, you can give Vumoo a try. Sure, it’s not the best free streaming service out there. But if you stream without any expectations, you won’t be disappointed.
