Best Movie & TV Streaming Sites for your PS3 Browser

32 Comments | posted

Why pay hundreds of dollars every month for cable and movie rentals when you have a game system capable of streaming nearly any TV show or movie for free, without commercial breaks? If you own a PS3 and have high speed internet, then this applies to you. By using the custom PS3 browser, users can watch movies, television series, documentaries, cartoons, and anime.

However, not every video player works with the PS3 browser. Using this guide, you will be able to find some of the video players that have been tested to work on the PlayStation 3 browser.

The following websites are by far the best I’ve found. They provide easy navigation to what you are looking for and without the memberships, surveys, and pop ups.

FastPassTV

FastPassTV makes things simple and easy to navigate through, especially with the PlayStation 3 browser. When first loading up the site, you are presented with the choice of which type of media content you’re looking for. This option definitely speeds up the process and has you on your way in no time.

Once you pick your category, you’re presented with a dictionary-like setup that makes browsing through television shows and movies quite easy. It also means you can find pretty much whatever it is you’re looking for as well. Out of all of the streaming websites online, this is by far the easiest and most user friendly to date.

ProjectFreeTV

ProjectFreeTV isn’t as simple and as user friendly as FastPassTV, but it gets the job done. While you’re automatically presented with a flurry of poorly coordinated colors upon entry, it’s easy to find what the top content being watched consists of, however, if you want something else, you’ll need to dig a little deeper.

Project Free does offer the chance to select categories and does offer a simple-to-use search function, but on an overall level, I don’t believe it offers as simple of functionality as FastPassTV. Thankfully, despite the poor design, once you’ve selected your category up top, you’re presented once more with a dictionary-like presentation and from there on, it’s as simple as any other website to use.

Standard Instructions

Once you’ve picked a show or movie to watch from FastPassTV or ProjectFreeTV, pick from the following video players (in order of quality/load times): VidX Den (FLV), WiseVid, Megavideo, Videoweed, and Novamov.

Note that MegaVideo only allows for 72 minutes of watch time, before asking you to become a member. If you use MegaVideo and your timer is up, you have to wait an hour and a half before getting another 72 minutes.

Also, for those wondering about the illegal content available through some of these sites, it’s a bit of a gray area when it comes to being a viewer of streaming content. While the MPAA will tell you it’s just as illegal as downloading (via torrent or P2P), copyright attorney Steve Englund says that those watching that material may not necessarily be guilty of anything.

“It is a little more complicated question whether it is illegal to watch it when someone else has put it online,” he said.

So just keep that in mind when browsing through all the new wonderful videos available through these sites. If you have any favorite sites that you know work for the PS3 browser, let us know about them in the comment section below.

    Megavideo FTW! lol, I’ve seen A LOT of online movies on my PS3 browser using megavideo…. A LOT

    Playstation fanboys are so incredibly stupid, you hate when piracy hits the PSP/PS3 but have no problem highlighting ways of stealing other media?

    Wow.

    “Playstation fanboys are so incredibly stupid, you hate when piracy hits the PSP/PS3 but have no problem highlighting ways of stealing other media?
    Wow.”

    if you have a netflix account what difference does it make?

    • DNelson

      It isn’t piracy and it isn’t stealing. It is perfectly legal because the shows are broadcast by the content providers over the internet. FCC rules declare that these over the internet broadcasts are freely accessible to all people the same as the over the air broadcasts.

      seems like the “fanboys” are smarter than you.

    • Brent

      I would if netflix had anything to view.

      Ever see the tv show offering on netflix canada. I can tell you it ain’t much, unless you like reruns of things like murder she wrote. ICK!

  • movie buff

    netflix u have to pay dummy fastpasstv.com you DONT!! totally FREE!!

  • Tom Ato

    Why am I not surprised RROD – Box 360 fangirls are here talking trash on a PS3 article? I know you kids don’t have anything better to do with your lives, since the Xbox 360 doesn’t have any exclusive games to keep you entertained but you should still find something more productive to do than troll Playstation websites like diseased rodents. Maybe you could try making some friends, or baking, or better yet, get a decent job so you can afford a PS3 and then see what REAL games look like.

  • Megaupload

    i wouldn’t stream movies to my ps3 in the browser.
    i always dl the movie or tv show first with megaupload,[on my pc]then watch it by streaming with a media server.

    ps3divx.net is a great place to stream and download movies using the ps3browser. It is designed specifically for the ps3 browser and content is added often. The streaming movies section hasn’t got near as many movies as the download section but a wonderful site none-the-less.

    Have you recently done the filmware update on your PS3? New features are being added! Most of you may be unaware that your PS3 already has an EXCELLENT movie program already installed! CRACKLE. Its under the internet browser (where facebook and youtube is). 100% FREE. New movies are added weekly! Also has tons of TV shows. Anyone that cracks on the PS3 online browser does so ,because they just dont know what they are doing! Mine has a perfect picture NEVER cuts in and out! I can stream all the tv shows dirrectly from ABC CBS syfy, ect.! PERFECT quality! To make this work correctly, you MUST have DSL. Secondly, you MUST have a newer version router (if your going wireless/I am 100% wireless)! It works better if you use ethernet cable. I dont see any differnce because my router is up to date. To all of you DOWNLOADING illegal content, BE WARNED they WILL catch up to you! A freind of mine just GOT SERVED! Internet provider banned him for life, he got a list from them of every movie he ever downloaded! 3 movie companies are taking him to court for millions of dollars! All internet providers have been COURT ordered to report ANY illegal downloads!Redbox is a MUCH safer alternative! Pay the $1 and make a copy to watch anytime you want! Then you can use any of several free programs to stream through the PS3/hdtv. Not to mention quality will also be perfect! You can also do blu-rays if you have a blu-ray player in your computer! You dont need a burner only a player! Also, you can get a video capture card for your computer and just run the cable directly from ANY blu-ray dvd player to the card! This is only legal for your own personal use!

    Tom RTO. you sound mad that the xbox runs better and smoother than the Playstation I own both systems, and a wii even, but I use my xbox by far more because of how better the servers are, the friends system is, party system. etc.

    • balso

      i just recently smashed my xbox to pieces for pissing me off and got a ps3, was living in a house with 4 people and we had 3 xboxs break with 3 different errors, RROD, disk stuck in xbox and some weird error 754 or something. you tell me xbox runs smoother, fuck they hardly run at all. anybody with any loyalty to Microsoft just amazes me, to even release a console with so many bugs and errors is proof they righteous twats

  • JD

    shut up Brandon. i just got done selling our xbox 360 slim (second time i’ve sold one) and there is nothing superior about it. the servers are not better, most games on the 360 are P2P whereas ps3 exclusives have dedicated servers, psn is free, and the party system is overrated and can even compromise online gaming. sorry but the 360 does not run any more smoother than the ps3. you’re just a fanboy.

    The resulting final list spans a serious panoramic selection beginning with Xanadu ($160 million),

    Try to consentrate returning to the last time which you entered a show theater and watched some
    celluloid images about the big screen which was intent on selling you ideas
    rather than selling you small plastic figurines, T-shirts, lunchboxes,
    and Happy Meals. Kimmel chose the most side-splitting ‘Silverstoned’ reactions and broadcast them on tv Monday

    He died in 1985 but this very personal museum is a lasting reminder of the very remarkable man.
    So far, reactions for the acquisition, as well as on the announcement in the new
    business model, are already mixed, but only time will inform whether
    or not just a revamped version from the massively popular peer-to-peer website will probably be as successful as its predecessor.

    There can be artifacts left on the screen, especially during hockey games for some reason. You will most likely find that your own computer is ready to work with the software. With You – Tube, you can also set up playlists of all your favorite music videos and listen to them on the go.

    Thank you, I have just been looking for information about this topic for ages and yours is the best I’ve came upon till now. But, what about the conclusion? Are you certain in regards to the source?

    In my opinion, highly problematic foods like wheat, dairy and sugar should continue to be restricted from a child’s diet until his immune system is fully developed after the onset of puberty. Stress causes severe adrenal failure over a period of time, normal thyroid function is dependent on effectively functioning adrenals which again so often leads to the assumption that the thyroid is the failing organ. Remove any foods out of your diet that you feel you may be allergic to or that you feel might be adding to your problems and see what are the result’s.
