Popcornflix is an over-the-top (OTT) video streaming service. The site is owned by Screen Media Ventures, which in 2017 was acquired by Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment. It was founded by Kevin Murphy and is based in New York City. It offers a wide variety of movies, TV shows, and cartoons.
The website is free to use and offers a variety of content. Full-length movies, comedy series, dramas, and webisodes can all be found on the site. From classics to cult favorites, Popcornflix features something for everyone. Users can even watch classic cartoons and games from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. However, it is blocked for users in countries outside the US, but there are several ways to get around this restriction.
Another drawback of Popcornflix is that it is ad-supported. Users must watch short commercials while watching a movie, but these are usually only fifteen or twenty seconds. The ads are not too intrusive and are not detrimental to the user experience. Users also do not have to worry about privacy as the company does not require a name during the optional signup process. Users simply have to register with an email address and a password.
Popcornflix also includes original content that isn’t available on other streaming services. The service features a wide variety of movies, TV shows, and documentaries. It also includes many independent films.
