On-demand television platforms such as Netflix or HBO have made online and streaming movies and series very popular. These providers offer extensive catalogs of films and all kinds of television productions. However, other alternatives let you enjoy audiovisual content; one of them is Popcorn Time.
A service based on torrent connections
Unlike the platforms mentioned above, which use their own closed video compression system for you to watch content accessing their web or desktop client on PC, Mac, or smartphone, Popcorn provides service through torrent connections that download the video into a temporary folder starting from the beginning of the footage. That is, you can start watching a movie or episode from the beginning while the rest of the video is downloading.
Good video quality and an incredible catalog that grows every day.
And this is no crappy app. Quite the opposite: install the APK on your cell phone or tablet and access a carefully designed and well-organized interface where you can browse content.
- Movies and series streaming.
- Integrated search engine.
- HD quality when available.
- Latest news.
- Films and series in original version with subtitles.
- Sort results by rating, genre, or year of release.
- Download video for offline viewing.
As you know, this service first appeared for Windows, Mac, and Linux desktop, and you can now enjoy it (as in this case) on Android smartphones and tablets and even on iOS devices such as iPhone and iPad (via a jailbreak, of course).
This is a long-standing service that has been providing series and movies to its users for several years, so there is no reason to think that it may stop doing so soon. The service is surprisingly stable and is updated almost daily with the latest content and good quality. In short, if you missed the newest movie release or want to enjoy that childhood show you liked so much, chances are you will find it at Popcorn Time.
