Find The Shows & Movies You Want

Saturday, April 29th, 2017 by | Filed Under: Android, Free Downloads, iOS, Multimedia, TV Tech

Remember back in the day when you could just open up the TV Guide and see everything that was available to watch? Or even later on, when hitting the grid button for your cable or satellite provider was enough to tell you what was available. Now, I know many of you have cut the core or use several streaming services in addition to regular satellite and cable programming. There’s a great site and app called that can help you find what you’re looking for.  Not only can you check streaming services, you can also look for movies playing in theaters.

To search for a movie or program, just type it in the search box at the top of the page.  You can filter out results by new programs, popular programs, or by movies currently in theaters.

Here’s what it looks like if you’re using the app on your phone or tablet.


There are several filters you can apply to that search. Search across dozens of services like Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Google, Hulu, and Vudu or just select one or two.  You can choose to only search movies or TV shows.


Choose Release year and adjust the slider to pick the year you want. This is helpful since there are often multiple shows and movies with the same title.

Choose price and you can sort by free, subscription, ad-free, and whether it’s available to buy. If you’re using the mobile app, you can also be notified of price drops on programs you’d like to buy. You can even choose between standard definition and HD.  Genre allows you to sort by categories like comedy, crime, drama, sports, and kids’ programming.


Just click the Reset icon to remove any of the filters.


Let’s do some test searches. First, I’m going to search for 1980s sitcom “Perfect Strangers.” I saw the cast members being interviewed and was suddenly seized with the urge to watch. A quick search shows me that it’s not available for streaming, but is available for purchase in several places. I can click on the icon for Apple or the other service to be taken to the page to purchase the item.

When I search the show Supernatural, I come up with two streaming options and several purchase options. You can also create a watch list to help you decide what to view next.

You can also choose New or Popular releases and just scroll through looking for items that interest you. This site is a great way to get an idea about what’s available to watch. The JustWatch app is also available in the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store for your mobile device.
