Popcorn Time is a multi-platform application and BitTorrent client using peer-to-peer technology to stream and play back movies and TV shows instantly. Popcorn Time lets you watch the video content for a free alternative to subscription-based video streaming services such as Netflix.
Popcorn Time provides a free streaming service like Stremio, however, Stremio aggregates the video content from any sources by installing addons. It means Stremio doesn't support an illegal act of free-watching copyrighted material on its nature of service.
