Editor's Note: Popcorn Time.io has been indefinitely shut down. This new version is the Community Edition. As an alternative you can also try Time4Popcorn.

Popcorn Time! is the result of many developers and designers putting a bunch of APIs together to make the experience of watching torrent movies as simple as possible. The new and improved Popcorn Time allows you to watch movies and TV shows online for free, in HD or SD with subtitles. Now also available for Android.

We are an open source project. We are from all over the world. We love our movies. And boy, do we love popcorn.

Great movies

We're constantly searching all over the web for the best torrents from the most important sites.

No restrictions

Watch any movie as many times as you want. All you need to get started is a proper internet connection.

Awesome catalogue

If the movie is out there, Popcorn Time will find the best version possible and start streaming it right away.

The best quality

Watch your movie instantly in HD and with subtitles. And then keep watching.

Recent Improvements

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 watchedEye 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.

Advanced settings

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!
