ICYDK: JustWatch Is the Best Place to Find Where a Show or Movie Is Streaming

So you want to watch a specific movie. You can manually search for it on Prime, Netflix, Hulu, Sling, YouTube TV, or wherever else you watch movies. Or! You could open JustWatch and find where it’s streaming all in one place. Seriously, it’s the bomb dot com.

Welcome to ICYDK (In Case You Didn’t Know), a series where we offer tips and tricks that aren’t necessarily new but may have gone under the radar or otherwise not be well known.

I’m not sure how I didn’t know about JustWatch before, but I only recently learned about it. And if you didn’t know about it before either, well, you’re in for a treat.

The idea is super simple: you look for a movie or show, and JustWatch shows you everywhere you can stream it. It covers free services, as well as paid rentals and even where you can buy the flick digitally. It’s a massive time saver.

If you’re looking for something that may have a common name or share a name with another show or movie, you can use filters to specifically display the type of content you’re looking for. You can also filter by year, genre, rating, and even age rating. And of course, you can display only the services you use, which is great.

If you’re not sure what to watch, JustWatch can help with that, too. It covers new releases, as well as a list of currently-popular titles. Hell, you can even keep a watchlist here (instead of 19 different lists on literally every service out there), so you can plop down on the couch and just catch a flick without having to really think about it. Easy peasy.
