Watchily is a free website that lets you find sources where you can watch movies and TV shows online. It gives only legal websites which are authorized to broadcast such shows. It also shows price of the movies and TV shows on those websites, and lets you filter for results based on price, genre, content length, and much more.
There are actually many websites that provide similar functionality, but such websites most of the time also list those websites that are not authorized to host those TV shows and movies. So, even though you might be able to watch TV shows using those websites, but you might be messing up with various laws while doing that.
Thankfully, Watchily takes care of this by searching only legal websites. Some of the websites that it searches from include Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, and more.
How to Search for TV Shows and Movies Online:
Watchily is pretty easy to use. Head to the homepage of this website, using link given at the end of this review. On the homepage, you will see a big search box. Just enter the name of movie or TV show that you want to watch and Watchily will show the websites where you can watch those legally.
Watchily will show name of the website, as well as price of watching on the website. In many cases, you can watch the TV show or movie for free if you already have a subscription with those websites. Just click on “Watch it now” button to watch the TV show or movie online directly on that website.
Do note that Watchily will not be able to get around country restriction. So, if it shows a website that does not works for your country, Watchily will not be able to get around that. For that, you can use software like Hola, Tunlr, Media Hint, or even these Chrome extensions.
Filters Results as Per Your Preference:
Watchily lets you easily filter the results. You can filter the results by price, maximum length, store, content rating, as well as Genre. All these filters appear on the left side of search results page, so you can quickly get to the result that you are looking for. My personal favorite filter in this is “Free” ;)

Watchily pulls the search results from following stores:
- Cinemax Go (Max Go)
- Comcast XFINITY
- HBO Go
- Showtime Anytime
My Opinion About Watchily:
I am really fond of watching TV shows online, and end up searching across multiple websites to see where a particular TV show is available. So, Watchily is perfect for someone like me. Now I can go to just one website and find where I can watch that TV show. Also, the fact that it does not requires any registration etc. is icing on the cake.
