Torrent Freak recently reported that popcorn time must be blocked in the UK by all the major ISP’s. The popcorn time team have issued the following statement.
We’re pretty disappointed from the judicial system in the UK and feel pretty sorry for the citizens of England for their basic rights, like the freedom of speech and net neutrality being revoked so easily.
We hope to see some sort of protest from the citizens of the UK against this order, but given how easy it is for the judicial system there to hurt their basic rights, we doubt they will do so.
We find this move they made pretty predictable and we’re sure that this is not the last of it. We’re working full force now even more than ever on making Popcorn Time fully p2p and soon the software will not be depended on any domain or centralized server to operate.
Now if you already have popcorn time installed you should be ok to continue watching it however if you find yourself currently blocked you can always use a VPN, we recommend Private Internet Access as they allow users to buy a year service anonymously.
