After a brief stint without a home, Popcorn Time is back online at Popcorn-time.tv. I give it two weeks until the site is pulled and it pops up somewhere else. Meanwhile the installer is actively traded on torrent sites and back on GitHub, showing that a program can exist, but perhaps not thrive, without a flashy front-end website.
This cycle of being a virtual rolling stone is the result of the shady nature of the program. Popcorn Time is without question the easiest way to watch pirated, and illegal content. By constantly moving, the program is staying somewhat hidden in the belly of the Internet — that is, until we shoot the new address to the masses. Sorry ’bout that.
