YouTube Movies has a wealth of free online legitimate movies and in this guide I’ll show you how you can watch anywhere in the world.
If you haven’t yet heard of ‘YouTube Movies’ then you’ve been missing out.
While the service is available in most countries allowing you to purchase both new and old movies it’s the American edition that really stands out.
Unlike the British, Australia, Canadian or other versions of YouTube Movies, the American one doesn’t just let you rent movies but it also lets you watch them free (albeit with ads).
There’s everything from Rocky to Terminator and Zookeeper to Legally Blonde. Best of all, they’re all FREE to watch.
If you’re in the United States you can just visit the YouTube Movies page to start watching but if you’re outside you’ll need a little workaround to get started. Below I’ll show you how.
How to watch YouTube Movies free outside America
If you’re outside America then the free YouTube Movies will be locked from viewing.
If you do try to sneak around the back door (and by that I mean visiting the page directly) you’ll get slapped with a big fat “Video unavailable – The uploader has not made this video available in your country” message.
I can hear your disappointment from here.
The neat news is there’s an app called a ‘VPN‘ that will let you jump to another country (virtually) so you can watch all the YouTube Movies for free in any country.
- A VPN allows you to disguise your real location.
- A VPN will allow you to watch free YouTube Movies
- A VPN will allow you to watch in ANY country
Where can I get a VPN and what’s the best
There are so many VPN services these days you’ve got plenty of choices. Although YouTube Movies are free a VPN will cost a couple of dollars per month.
The best way to save money is to take a 12-month subscription such as the one on offer from ExpressVPN. They throw in 3-months completely free which makes the service nearly 50% cheaper than paying per month.
Not all VPN apps are great and some are too slow for streaming video so it pays to shop around.
Luckily I’ve done the testing for you and found the following three best for the job:
- ExpressVPN: Fast video streaming with a huge 30-day money back guarantee. ExpressVPN is top rated across the internet in reviews and user comments. This makes them great for watching video such as YouTube Movies.
- IPVanish: An industry veteran that allows you to use the service on an unlimited number of devices at the same time, if you’ve got multiple family members then they can all watch with one account. They’ve got a handy 7-day money back guarantee.
- NordVPN: This VPN provider has super simple apps and is great if you’re a beginner. They work on all major devices and they’re one of the most user-friendly. They also have a 30-day money back guarantee allowing you plenty of time to test it.

How to use a VPN to watch YouTube Movies
To watch YouTube Movies in your country you simply need to choose one of the three recommended VPN services from above.
My favourite is ExpressVPN and below you can see the simple steps you can follow that allow you to watch YouTube Movies for free in any country.
- Sign up for one of the three VPN services from above, I used ExpressVPN which you can get by clicking here.
- Download their app from your regular app store or the ‘Products’ section of their website.
- Open the app and login when required.
- Press ‘Selected Location‘ (1) and then press ‘United States‘ (2).
- Depending on your device the app may connect automatically, otherwise press ‘Connect‘ (3).
- Once connected head over to YouTube Movies.
You’ll notice the movies available are now priced in US Dollars which means everything is working correctly.
You can head directly to the free YouTube Movies section and browse through the available selection of movies that are available for free.
I recommend checking out ‘Hackers’ and ‘Rocky’, two classic movies if you haven’t seen them already.

Can I watch YouTube Movies on a mobile device?
The VPN solution works on both regular desktop and laptops and also on mobile devices such as phones and tablets.
It’s exactly the same process. As you can see in the image below it works well with mobile devices too.
Just sign up for ExpressVPN and download their mobile app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, connect to the United States and then open the YouTube app as normal.
You can now search for the YouTube Movies page and watch all the movies you like.
