The the “Netflix of torrents” is coming to the Chromecast

Despite efforts from content owners that spare no expense to stop piracy on the internet the fact remains that it is almost impossible to stop the flow of pirated content online. Even in this day and age when DMCA notices and lawsuits are commonly served upon infringers a service like Popcorn Time not only exists but thrives. Initially the service did fall down to legal eagles but it has existed as an open source project since with several forks coming online. One such fork has not only released a Popcorn Time app for Android but is now also working on support for Chromecast. Popcorn Time is a free service that many have dubbed as the “Netflix of torrents.”

Popcorn Time is a miracle: It lets you stream torrents of movies and TV shows as though they were on Netflix or Hulu. Is it illegal? Probably! But it’s also awesome, hard to trace, and soon, it’ll work with your Chromecast. Recently, we’ve been following the development of Time4Popcorn, a very popular and fast-developing fork of the open source Popcorn Time code. (The original Popcorn Time team hung it up earlier this year.) In recent months the Time4Popcorn team has launched everything froman Android app to VPN support. Now, you’ll be able to stream movies to your Chromecast so you can watch movies on a big screen with no wires. Today, the Windows version of the app with Chromecast support is inalpha, and the shadowy team says that Mac and Android support for Chromecast is on the way too. Development has been moving very fast so we’d expect updates in the near future. Keep on keeping on you magnificent coders.
