123movies is a free streaming platform where you can watch lots of TV shows and movies. It doesn’t host any actual movies but only aggregates lists of links to the services where those files are actually stored.
Why is it so popular?
It’s been around for several years now and people have just grown accustomed to using 123movies sites. Sometimes, the site moves around to a new domain and you need to Google it.
You don’t have to register or pay any money but you can start streaming TV shows and movies at once.
There’s a pretty good categorization of movies by genre so you can just browse in those categories to find some movies that you might want to watch.
As a rule, every movie or TV show episode has several links, so even if the first link doesn’t work, you should just check the rest of them. At least, one of those links will surely work fine.
123movies – like other free services for TV shows – makes money by showing banner ads and pop-ups. You just need to close those windows and continue watching your movies.
In some countries, 123movies sites can be blocked. If this is the case in your country, consider using a good VPN service to unlock access.
