Enjoy – (v.) To experience with joy; take pleasure in.
You know Netflix right? The red thing where you can watch movies. But you have to pay for it. Who likes paying if you can watch movies and series for free. You might have heard of the new phenomenon Popcorn-Time. A new application where you can watch movies and series. The app is created by, as they call themselves, a bunch of geeks. They were tired of the industry’s rules and they thought that watching a movie should be easy and instant. The app is a great idea and initiative.
Is it legal?
Is Popcorn-Time legal though? One might say it is another says it’s not. First of all it depends on the country you are from. All countries have different laws on streaming movies. In most countries it is legal to watch a movie online or for free but illegal to offer movies online.
To get into the technical aspect, how does it work? The app streams unauthorized copies of movies through Bittorrent. Bittorrent is the global standard for delivering high-quality files over the Internet. It’s a way to stream movies online. If you don’t understand what Bittorrents are click on the link and it will describe it for you.
Looking at the interface of the app it looks very clean. You can see the covers of the movies and it is easy to search for the movie you are looking for. On the top right you can also see your watch lists, favourites, information and settings. There is also an opportunity to filter the movies so you can find the right one for you.
I believe that in a couple of years nobody will use Netflix anymore and everyone will use Popcorn-Time. Logical right? It’s free and it’s easy and fun to use. Off course it is nice to go to the movies and have a date night. But people are always looking for ways to make life easier. They are always looking for ways to spend less money. So when they want to relax and enjoy their time. They wouldn’t want to spend a lot of money on an app or device to watch movies. So who doesn’t want to watch their favorite movie, or watch the latest movie from their laptop. It only takes a minute to download and you can watch a movie in good quality with subtitles. Hence for now, It’s Popcorn time!
