JustWatch: Find out where to watch your favorite Netflix or HBO movies
The offer of movies and series on the Internet is immense thanks to the multiple streaming platforms that are available. Each of them has its own catalog and exclusive productions, so you can't always watch the same movie on two platforms or more. For this reason, you need an app like JustWatch to know where to watch a movie or series from your mobile.
There are many services you can subscribe to, such as Netflix, HBO, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, Star, fuboTV, Rakuten TV and many others on the Internet. When a new series comes out or you want to watch that movie that made you get up from the sofa a few years ago, this tool allows you to quickly find the platform that has the rights to said production.
How to know where to watch each movie or series with JustWatch
JustWatch has a fairly easy-to-use interface that saves you the trouble of searching on each platform to see if the movie you want to see is on or not. The app presents you with a main screen with a catalog divided by categories, as if it were a letter of suggestions in case you're not sure what you're going to see.
When you click on a movie or series, the app shows you a complete menu with all the details of the work. In other words, it tells you its synopsis, its score and even other similar productions. However, the most important thing is its ability to show how many services that movie or series is available on, which tells you on which platform it is fixed, on which you can rent it for a limited time or on which you can buy it.
All platforms appear with their corresponding logo, but they also act as direct access. Thus, if you click on any of them, it will take you directly to the service's web page to watch the movie from there. Its database is so extensive that it contains any movie or series you can think of, both the most popular and the most recent and unknown, which you can find in the New section.
How to configure JustWatch on your mobile
Until now you know everything that the app offers in terms of content, but it allows you to do much more. JustWatch has an algorithm that is capable of adapting to the tastes of each user, although for that you have to follow a series of steps. First of all, you have to log in with an account to enter your most basic data, such as age or country of residence.
Next, you can add the platforms to which you are subscribed or those that you usually visit more, so that the app can filter the search. At the top of the main page, you can configure the services you want to have included in the JustWatch algorithm.
On the other hand, the interface allows you to give your opinion on each movie or series to filter the searches so that the app can show you content that is more appropriate for you. You just have to press Like or Dislike for each of them. Signed in, you can also connect your TV with JustWatch to watch that movie directly, whether it's Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, LG or Samsung.
You just have to download the app on your TV and enter any movie from the mobile version. Next, press the Watch on TV button, and by typing in a code provided by the app, playback will automatically start on your TV. The app is available for both Android and iOS, so you won't have any compatibility problems.
