Popcorn Time

Popcorn Time

Think of Popcorn Time like Netflix, just with movies worth watching. Find a title and click “Watch It Now”. The media catalog is impressive. Everything from first run movies to classics like Hook are available to watch. Frozen, American Hustle, Gravity — even Delivery Man if you’re a touch masochistic. Captain Philips, Dallas Buyers Club, and the Bridge on the River Kwai are there. All the videos are free. And slightly illegal.

Popcorn time has no any connection to Netflix or Netflix servers..It buffers movies from torrents.And in this latest version 2.9.1 They have added an all new category for TV shows

What’s New in Version?


You can now drag and drop subtitles (.srt files) on the player to load them. This means you can now drag and drop an external torrent, and an external subtitles to stream it on Popcorn Time.

Last time, we added a “watched” icon on an episode you’ve played, and now we add the possibility to manually set a video as watched, so you can easily update you progression.


Eye icon indicating whether a video has been watched

And we didn’t forget our power users. It has been a request since we took over the project and with Popcorn Time beta 3.1, you have the option to keep the downloaded files after you quit Popcorn Time.


Files are not shared over P2P after you watch it.

But wait, it’s not over: general performances have been improved, our subtitle selection has been refined, new languages [ Hello Croatians, Thais and Vietnameses, please have some popcorn! ] and… get a look to a rather exhaustive changelog at the bottom of the post. :)

One more thing…work on the Android app is under way!

We are again thrilled by the huge support we get from all over the world : THANK YOU! <3
