Popcorn Time is a free and multi-platform media player that streams content via the per-to-peer bittorrent network. In the media, Popcorn Time has been called “the Netflix for pirates” as it streams unauthorized copies of films, without the many restrictions forced upon the legal service providers.

The project is open soure and several forks (versions) has been developed for the main operating systems, Linux, OS X, Windows and Android.
