The "must have" application for all film addicts is now here!

Popcorn Time

Popcorn Time was the original name of a BitTorrent client and media player. The program was a free alternative to subscription-based video streaming services such as Netflix. Popcorn Time used sequential downloading to play unauthorized copies of films listed by the website YTS, (yts.re, formerly YIFY) (although other trackers can be added and used manually).

Following its inception, Popcorn Time quickly received positive media attention, with some comparing the app to Netflix due to its ease of use. After this increase in popularity, the program was abruptly taken down by its original developers on March 14, 2014 due to pressure from the MPAA. Subsequently, Popcorn Time was independently forked by other developers to maintain the program and produce new features.

How it works?

Skip the downloads! Watch the best movies & TV shows on Popcorn Time instantly in HD, with subtitles, for free! Available for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android.

Hard to believe? See how it easy works:
1. Open Popcorn Time and select movie or episode
2. Select quality and subtitles
3. Click play and enjoy!

What happens to the movies after I'm done?
Your movies will stay buried in a temporary folder somewhere on your drive until you restart your computer. Then it will be gone for good. You can choose to keep the downloaded files in the settings.

My rate: 4/5
I found this app very useful and I couldn't be happier because of the subtitles. There is no subtitle in my native language, but watching films with English subtitle is an advantage considering that is a worldwide spoken and needed language in almost every area (work, studies etc.) I also prefer not downloading movies/series so I also found that as a benefit.

Got a bit disappointed because it is going slow, maybe the fault is in my Internet server, I really don't have any idea where is the mistake.

Overall, it is worth trying. Enjoy
