An Introduction to FilmRise

But first, what exactly is FilmRise?

FilmRise is an on-demand streaming service that gives you free access to a massive catalog of movies and TV shows. Just create a free account and you can start streaming their library of over 20,000 titles.

The service launched in 2012 and has since raised over $100 million in funding to acquire rights to popular movies and shows.

FilmRise is able to make this content available for free by showing a few short ads when you open the app or start playing a video. But otherwise, you get unlimited on-demand streaming without any subscriptions or fees.

The FilmRise library includes a diverse mix of titles such as:

  • Major Hollywood blockbuster films like The Terminator, Gone With the Wind, The Last Samurai, Ghost, and many more.

  • All-time classic movies ranging from black & white films to 1980s cult hits.

  • Popular TV shows across every genre including comedies, dramas, true crime, reality shows, and documentaries.

  • A wide range of family-friendly kids movies and shows.

According to FilmRise, they add over 100 new titles every month to keep the library fresh.

Now let‘s look at all the ways you can start streaming the FilmRise catalog by installing their app on various devices. We‘ll start with two of the most popular streaming platforms – Fire TV and Roku.
