If you are a movie lover, you may know about OnionPlay. OnionPlay used to be the best website for watching free movies and TV Shows online. However, the site’s popularity is declining daily for some definite reason.

First, the site started showing lots of ads, which has reduced the quality of Movies & TV Shows. Second, now many premium video streaming services are available on the internet, allowing users to watch movies & TV Shows legally.

Is OnionPlay Safe?

Streaming with OnionPlay is as safe as other free websites that provide Movies & TV Shows. There’s always a security and privacy risk when using sites that share copyrighted content.

However, whether OnionPlay is safe or not depends on various factors. But the most important thing is that you will find newly released movies on the site, which is enough to think of piracy.

Also, you will need a VPN to access OnionPlay in several countries since it’s banned by either authorities or ISPs. The site doesn’t ask you to register; you are anonymous.

But still your IP Address is forwarded to the site owner; you can hide it using a VPN app for your PC.

10 Best OnionPlay Alternatives for HD Movie Streaming

If you avoid piracy, OnionPlay is not a site for you. It’s not legal to stream movies on OnionPlay, and you may have to use a VPN or Proxy server to unlock the site in many regions. To avoid all these messes and safety issues, it’s best to use OnionPlay alternatives that are genuine and legal.

In this article, we have listed some of the best OnionPlay alternatives that allow you to stream endless hours of videos. All the sites listed in the article are safe, and you must purchase a subscription to watch movies & TV Shows. Let’s check out.

1. Popcornflix

Many people think Popcornflix is not a legal source for movie & TV Show streaming, but it’s not true. Popcornflix is the best and safest free streaming service available out there.

The good thing about Popcornflix is that it hosts thousands of movie titles you can watch absolutely free. You can watch the movies unlimited times without any restrictions or limitations on the video quality.

The user interface of Popcornflix also needs a special mention as it’s clean and nicely organized. In addition to that, Popcornflix also has its apps available for both Android and iOS devices.

So, even if you don’t want to use the Popcornflix website, you can use mobile apps to satisfy your daily entertainment needs.

2. Tubi TV

Tubi TV

Tubi TV is another best movie streaming site to watch movies for free legally. It is one of the rare video streaming websites that only hosts movies & TV Shows.

It is legal to watch movies on Tubi TV because it has partnerships with popular movie studios such as Starz, Lionsgate, etc. You can watch endless hours of movies on Tubi TV.

However, the only thing you need to do before streaming movies is to create a free account. The free account doesn’t ask you to link your credit/debit card; you can instantly watch thousands of hours of free content after creating an account.

Regarding compatibility, Tubi TV works with every popular web browser and operating system. Also, it has apps available for Android, iOS, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and more.

3. Vudu


Vudu is an obvious choice if you prefer quality over quantity. It isn’t your regular movie streaming site that hosts thousands of flop or badly rated movies. Vudu focuses on quality and has limited content.

The database of Vudu isn’t as big as that of Netflix, Disney+, and PopcornFlix, but it does have many popular titles like Predator, Undisputed, Rocky series, etc.

Another thing to note is that not every movie on Vudu is available as a free watch. Yes, most of them are free, but there are some titles you need to pay to watch.

Regarding availability, Vudu is available in every region, but there’s no app available for Android, iOS, or any streaming device. You solely need to rely on the web browser to access the catalog of Vudu.

4. Kanopy


Kanopy is basically an on-demand video streaming service that offers films, TV Shows, and documentaries to public and academic libraries. The site is basically designed for University students or professors, and you need to be either of two to watch the films.

You can also access the catalog of Kanopy if you have a public library card. If we talk about the user interface, Kanopy has one of the best ones we’ve ever seen. The site’s user interface matches the one seen on Netflix.

Content-wise, Kanopy has popular classic movies such as Lady Bird, Moonlight, Mr. Hublot, Captain Fantastic, etc. Along with it, you can also enjoy Kanopy on your mobile since its app is available for both Android and iOS.

5. Crackle


If you are in search of a site that keeps refreshing its content at regular intervals, then Crackle might be the perfect pick for you. Sony backs the site, and it’s a completely free service.

Crackle is 100% free; you don’t need to sign up to use it. While the database of Crackle isn’t as big as Netflix and Prime Video, it’s still growing each day and gaining new users.

Everything is top-notch on Crackle, from the user interface to the video quality. However, the ‘Free’ term used to describe the video site costs you ads. There are ads on the site that pops up while watching movies. This is something movie lovers may hate.

Another thing is that Crackle is only available in some regions. At the time of writing, Crackle is available only within the United States and its territories. Hence, even though it’s a legal streaming site, you may still have to use a VPN/Proxy to unblock it.

6. Netflix


Netflix is the best movie streaming service on the list and the best OnionPlay alternative. While the site is not free like OnionPlay, it will satisfy all your video streaming needs.

With a monthly subscription, you can unlock all content of Netflix. The contents include top-rated Movies, TV Shows, the latest Movies, Documentaries, etc. Also, Netflix is known mainly for its exclusive content you won’t find anywhere else online.

If we talk about availability, Netflix is available in all popular regions. And, even if you fall from a non-supported region, you can still unlock the site using a VPN or Proxy server.

From the user interface to content quality, everything is good on Netflix. However, you must carefully pick the plan because only some plans unlock high-quality videos.

7. PrimeVideo

Amazon Prime Video

PrimeVideo is part of an Amazon Prime subscription and is one of the best OnionPlay alternatives. While PrimeVideo doesn’t have as much content as Netflix, it still has many exclusive contents.

The good thing about PrimeVideo is that you can also watch Live TV and Sports channel. Along with it, you also have movies & TV Shows that you can watch without limitations and in Ultra HD quality.

The pricing of PrimeVideo is pretty affordable, and you can purchase it individually or purchase the whole Amazon Prime subscription. Amazon Prime Subscription provides access to features like Prime Gaming, Amazon Music, Prime Reading, etc.

If you are searching for the best site like OnionPlay, for streaming Disney and Marvel movies, then Disney+ might be the best pick. Disney+ houses almost all popular Marvel movies, such as Iron Man, Avengers, Loki, etc.

Disney+ also has an extension called Hotstar that’s only available for Indian users. The subscription price for Disney+ Hotstar is affordable, and you can pay monthly or yearly.

You can subscribe to those channels and watch videos for free. However, expect something other than the latest and popular movies, as YouTube is pretty strict regarding piracy. You can expect movies that are available as free watch.

Another thing is that YouTube has a dedicated section to rent movies. So, even if you can’t find your favorite movie on any channel, you can rent it from YouTube.

You can access YouTube on your mobile, computer, or streaming devices. The user interface is clean, and it also has the option to download videos for offline playback.
