Meet the movie pirating service that Netflix is afraid of

Movie pirating used to be something that happened quietly behind closed doors. Unscrupulous Internet users would swarm to peer-to-peer file-sharing services and download bootleg copies of films, trying to hide their tracks as best they could.

People flock to Reddit and other online forums to openly discuss movie theft, and the most popular means of downloading stolen movies are widely publicized services like The Pirate Bay and Popcorn Time.

And when it comes to the latter, it turns out Popcorn Time isn’t just a tiny little piracy tool. The industry has taken notice and now Netflix, the biggest streaming movie and TV show service in the world, has directly named Popcorn Time as a threat. More →

Meet movie studios’ worst nightmare: IsoPlex, the free torrent-streaming movie app

Popcorn Time is an amazing online service that allows users to stream movies online free of charge instead of downloading them via Torrent services.

However, Popcorn Time had a short life, and was quickly removed, before resurfacing again. More →

With Popcorn Time, a single download gives you access to hundreds of high-quality streams from the genre of your choosing — the catch: it’s all very illegal.
