Popcorn time was'nt free. It was infested with either mal or spyware. Ive seen it in action once, the amount of time you had to wait in order to buffer a movie made me switch to premium stuff like disney, netflix and so on.

I can see why Popcorn Time shut down, I recall going to it in the past, it'd list virtually every movie. But, I assumed based on the links returned that it was like "new" Napster, didn't realize it was simply that nobody was providing links to it.

I found it amazing that the same people that fill their diapers whining about Windows and games security\privacy have no problem using something like PT, so they can steal stuff. True character shines through.

Excuse me? I'm paying for my content. It would be actually cool when the content would be fair more newer rather then years old or having the impression I'm surfing through a 5$ bin with prices off DVD's in terms of netflix.

Sorry man, but I was extending your comment and what I said was in no way aimed at you. I agree with what you said.
