Was having a few glasses of red with gourmet pizza last with a mate who I only see 2 or 3 times a year. Him being an ex video VHS rental shop owner in the 80's & 90's we got talking about how can franchises like United Video etc survive in today's SVOD market. Anyway long & short he was telling me about this torrent site, which a mate of his uses out in some place in the back blocks where there is no terrestrial TV only satellite (which he does not have) but does have fairly decent UFB. Anyway this mate swears by this Popcorn Time Torrent site which apparently?? is free.


What can forum members tell me about this site/service. Is it actually FREE?? What are the pro's & con's?


Never really trusted torrents due to their reputation of harboring infection nasties etc.

I've removed the link from the OP. And as per the FUG we won't be discussing such sites here.

Keep calm, and carry on posting.
