FilmOn have discontinued free SD watching and the respective Stremio add-on is affected.

You may have noticed that recently a lot of FilmOn content has been unavailable on Stremio. The reason for this is that FilmOn have changed their policy and no longer allow providers such as us to source content from their platform.

Until now, this licensed broadcaster has been a reliable source of free TV movies and social channels, which in turn we had been able to offer to our users. Unfortunately, however, the FilmOn management has taken the executive decision to quit offering their free services and to go paid-only. Here’s an official statement from the FilmOn customer support team:

Unfortunately, we need to inform you that we are no longer offering the free SD watching due to contractual requirements with our content vendors.

We’re very sorry and apologize for the inconvenience. We had no possibility to let our customers know about this change in our service in advance.

This means that the FilmOn.TV add-on for Stremio no longer function properly. Some of the content is still available but given the changes, we cannot guarantee the stability and performance of the add-on.

Fortunately, there are a number of official and community add-ons that you can use on Stremio, and we are positive that despite being inconvenient, the cancellation of the FilmOn.TV one will not spoil your user experience. You can see the entire add-on library here:

And if you are a programmer who would like to contribute to the project by developing your own add-on, we encourage you to do so! Check out the Stremio Add-on GitHub or get in touch with if you have any questions.
