Covid-19 Guide: How To Watch Movies Online With Your Friends? | SonderBlu

It’s always awesome to get together with your friends and hunker down on the couch to watch or binge must-see movies. Unfortunately, this pandemic situation has taken its toll on this type of entertainment as well, but don’t worry we are going to give you some options that let you enjoy watching movies with your friends while keeping social distancing. Although you can stream and text, Facetime, or share your screen on Zoom, still that doesn’t bring the whole watching-movie-together experience.

Luckily there are some interactive streaming services that allow you to enjoy your favorite online content, no matter where you are. Thanks to technology, whether you are in a long-distance relationship, move away from your home, or want to stay connected to your friends – check out this list to host watch parties digitally.

1. Netflix Party:

If you are particularly interested in Tiger King, Enola Holmes, or other Netflix originals, Netflix party Chrome extension is your savior. Netflix subscribers can use this extension to sync and enjoy movies in HD quality while interacting with each other in a shared live chat. This service was first introduced in 2015 by a former Airbnb engineer and actually not owned by Netflix. It may raise eyebrows about the data privacy, we recommend checking their privacy policy about this. You will find all the details on how Netflix Party treats your data. This service is free as a Chrome extension which means anyone with a Netflix account can use it. Only thing is, it is only available on Chrome browsers on desktop computers or laptops. There is no limit on how many people can watch Netflix together. Simply start and share the link with the person you want to invite.

2. MetaStream:

Metastream is a jack-of-all-trades platform that really enables you to get creative with online content consumption. It is also an extension that works on both Chrome and Firefox. It consists of three tabs: one with users, one that doubles as a watch list, and the third one for chatting. It has a sleek interface and compatible with many online streaming platforms and services. One problem with it is that it is a little buggy, which isn’t surprising given that it’s still in beta.

3. Hulu Watch Party:

The mammoth of American on-demand TV, Hulu became the first major streaming site to introduce an in-house watch party. There are few limitations, as Hulu Watch Party is only available to owners of an ad-free membership. This also means anyone you invite to the virtual movie-watch-party also needs to have an ad-free subscription. The content available for Watch Party is also very limited. If you own Ad-free Hulu + HBO, you should know that HBO is not supported via this interactive feature. Although it’s a bit frustrating, still it’s a pretty good deal for people who own an ad-free Hulu subscription.


Rabbit allows you to play third-party streaming platforms i.e. Netflix, YouTube, and other online movies (even games) with whoever you want to invite. All you need is to create a chat room, invite your friends and family, and just start binge-watching. Since users can share their browser via Rabbit, the collaborative streaming possibilities are endless.
