Despite numerous attempts to shut it down, Hollywood’s worst nightmare, Popcorn Time, just won’t die. It’s little wonder it’s been the target of studios’ ire: the service lets users stream high-quality movies and series for free, and its attractive and intuitive user interface means its popularity grows daily.
It’s been called the “Netflix for pirates”, but Popcorn Time offers even more for even less. A wider catalogue, more recent content and a price that can’t be undercut — free. Originally the service only offered movies, but last month it added TV series. Frankly, the only thing it lacks is a recommendation engine, but for that one can always turn to the likes of IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes.
