Long gone are the days when movie bootleggers were forced to take the time to download the films that they wanted to watch via torrents. Now Popcorn Time has just released a streaming service that is basically a Netflix for pirates. All they need to do is to access their website and they will be presented with a long list of films that they can immediately stream at their will.
The website called PopcornInYourBroswer.net was launched yesterday and obviously, it has become an over-night success among users. While it should be expected that the site will be shut down in the near future, for now it is up and running and it is offering a very generous movie list.
Previously, Popcorn Time users has to use torrents to download the films into their devices, but now it has just become much simpler, since downloading the files is no longer necessary. All the films lay just one click away.
The website has most likely already received an abundance of take-down notices for the majority of its content, but for the moment, this should not be able to prevent users from accessing the less-than-legal content.
Popcorn Time has received the very pertinent nickname “Netflix for pirates”, because it is so similar to what legal streaming services offer their users.
There is also an app available on several platforms, including Android, Mac, Windows and iTunes, that enables bootleggers to access films at their will for free. Back in 2014, the Popcorn Time app was taken down from Google Play Store within 24 hours from its release, but this did not stop users to download it elsewhere.
Since then, the pirate company has grown bigger and stronger, even managing to enable users to stream illegal movies onto their TV screens.
With an enormous amount of followers, it is quite hard to put an end to its victorious legacy and it looks like they always seem to find new and improved methods of making films available to their users for free.
While PopcornInYourBroswer.net is not the only streaming and torrent site of its kind, it is quite possible that it is the most convenient one at the moment, because it has made its films so easily available. No muss, no fuss, no download necessary, users can just click on the movie they want to watch and it will start playing within a few seconds.
