Netflix For Pirates Available In Web browser Now
Netflix has introduced a feature Popcorn Time for web browsers.
Netflix has taken a viewer-friendly measure. Hollywood’s long lasting war to safeguard copyrights sales revenues has entered a new phase with a new network browser edition of Popcorn Time enabling people to view content free of charge with just a few mouse clicks. Called “Netflix for pirates”, Popcorn Time has earlier existed as desktop software, which is required to be transferred to the user’s computer in the first place.
Netflix news exclaimed that before the application, piracy had needed a little more tech awareness, with BitTorrent client as the method of choice and browsing for Torrents. Torrents are known as files disseminated and stored across several users’ devices through “peer to peer” technology rather than downloaded and stored from, say a webpage.
Popcorn Time is utilizing torrents, but the software performs all the sound work in the background, offering a slim user interface based on Netflix and other transmission applications, aiding files to be transmitted promptly rather than waiting for them to be transferred fully.
Netflix news today disclosed that in the current times, users do not even require transferring an application — it is just all about typing web address into a browser, tapping on anything you are interested in, and then start eating Maltesers. The catch is that the web software would target users with popup advertisements spruiking dubious “get rich quick” and the like. These could effortlessly be worked around even with a simple advertisement blocking browser extension.
Film studios, such as Voltage Pictures, which is yet battling in an Australian court to gather the personal information of more than 4000 Australian citizens who it thinks copied its movie Dallas Buyers Club, have now initiated the process of moving after Popcorn Time’s individual customers.
Tech news site, The Verge, has reported that the newly introduced Popcorn Time web software is an earlier edition’s rehash, and that the new edition was produced by a teenage Serbian boy named Milan Kragujevic, who by no means is linked with the original application’s pioneers.
Netflix Breaking News informed that Milan said he designed the webpage because of geo blocking, content’s high cost, studios requesting on digital rights managing application that confines customers from being able to disseminate content, and transmission webpages not being offered across the globe in many languages.
He stated, “I live in a country where copyright law is almost non-existent, and simply I don’t care”. It could be claimed that the organization’s measure would play a role in appeasing its fans.
