You can stream movies, television shows—even download music—for free to your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Android device with “Hoopla Digital”, according to a Feb. 12 report in Scarsdale Daily Voice.

The free “Hoopla Digital” app lets you download and watch thousands of movies and television shows for free through a partnership between Midwest Tapes and your local library, giving you a mobile “Netflix'”style experience—but for free. You can also stream music and audiobooks through this app as libraries move away from physically lending CDs and other media.

Besides being convenient and free, what's so great about this service is that you can watch streaming movies and television shows as soon as you tap a title, there's no waiting time. There's also no waiting list and no overdue fines.

After you download this free app from the App Store, choose Sign Up and Next to see a map with the local public libraries that offer the “Hoopla Digital” service. Tap the pinhead that represents your library, then the arrow and enter your library card number. If you don't see your library listed, then you can sign up for a newsletter and “Hoppla Digital” will let you know when your library offers it.

The other excellent and legit way to watch free streaming movies and television shows on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch is to download the free app “Crackle”. This free app offers you new hit movies and shows each month with unlimited, on demand viewing. You can even create your own Watchlist so you can view what you want, when you want. What's more, there is no sign-up and no fees.

“Hoopla Digital” is rated 12+ for violence, gambling, references to alcohol, tobacco and drug use, sexual content, nudity, profanity, crude humor, horror and mature themes. This free app requires iOS 6.0+, is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and is optimized for iPhone 5.
