Torrent streaming site declares war on ‘righteous content monopolies’ – and it might win

To the dismay of content rights owners, which Popcorn Time calls “righteous content monopolies,” the popular streaming service isn’t quite ready to be wiped off the face of the Earth. The “Netflix for pirates” is here to stay and it’s about to offer pirates a major new feature: streaming movies and TV shows directly to any Internet browser. That means you won’t need a Popcorn Time client on your computer, smartphone or tablet, as you’ll be able to stream whatever you want right inside your preferred browser.

Chaos envelops ‘Netflix for Pirates’ as its most popular version shuts down

Popcorn Time is an online service that lets users stream pirated movies and TV shows on computers and mobile devices. Its main feature is the easy-to-use UI that reminds some users of Netflix’s interface – that’s why the illegal streaming service is often called “Netflix for pirates.” Unfortunately for its many fans, one of the most popular forks for Popcorn Time went down over the weekend, and it doesn’t look like things will change anytime soon.

‘Netflix for pirates’ now streams movies directly to your web browser

An app released earlier this year called Popcorn Time caused quite a stir. Whereas downloading stolen movies with torrent applications had previously been something that “mainstream” users stayed away from, this “Netflix for pirates” app made stealing copyrighted movies and TV shows as easy as streaming a video on Netflix. The app provided a beautiful interface that rethought the multi-step, multi-app torrenting process and combined everything into one simple app.

Thanks to a new project spawned by Popcorn Time, the process has been further simplified and you don’t even need to install an app anymore. More →

Popcorn Time blames Hollywood for popularity of illegal streaming

As the unofficial Netflix for Pirates, Popcorn Time has made waves ever since it debuted back in October of 2014. With an intuitive interface that puts other BitTorrent clients to shame, Popcorn Time makes it easier than ever for users to stream their favorite TV shows and movies from within a browser or even right from their smartphones.

Not surprisingly, Popcorn Time’s arrival has been resulted in an appreciable increase in overall piracy rates across the globe. Underscoring the threat that Popcorn Time poses to traditional industry revenue streams, Netflix a few months ago even called out the service by name, painting it as a strategic threat to its core business.

With an intuitive and easy to use interface, Popcorn Time has become the go-to service for users who, let’s be honest, want to pirate TV shows and movies. Underscoring how much easier the service is to use than traditional BitTorrent clients, the ascension of Popcorn Time has resulted in an absolute explosion in piracy since its 2014 launch. Norway in particular has experienced a huge increase in piracy, with some estimates claiming that 15% of the population there has viewed pirated content within the last 12 months.

It begins: Movie studio sues individual Popcorn Time users for infringement

Often described as “Netflix for pirates,” Popcorn Time users are now being targeted for infringement. Originally reported by TorrentFreak, the makers of a film called The Cobbler recently initiated a lawsuit against 11 Popcorn Time users in Oregon for copying and distributing the aforementioned film without authorization. The Cobbler, in case you’re unfamiliar, stars Adam Sandler and was released in early 2015 to tepid reviews.

Though no individual names are mentioned in the suit, the makers of the film list out the 11 John and Jane Does by their IP address alongside their ISP (in this case Comcast Cable) and the date and time they accessed the movie.
