Popcorn Time fork Porn Time is a huge hit

It is no surprise that Popcorn Time, the super-slick ‘Neflix for pirates’ app that lets users stream the latest movies and TV shows direct from torrent sites, is wildly popular. Perhaps more surprising is that it took developers so long to release Porn Time, the xxx-rated version of Popcorn Time. As Porn Time developer Richard noted,

How can it be, that Popcorn Time has been around for over a year and no one has made Popcorn Time for PORN? Since everyone knows that the Internet is for porn.

First launched around a month ago, some commentators questioned the need for such software in a world where there is no shortage of websites that offer streamed pirated porn. However, within even less than a week, Porn Time was downloaded some 450,000 times!

We’re pretty shocked and find it a little hard to believe and amusing in a way. But Porn Time, the Popcorn Time for Porn, became an Internet phenomenon just one week after it went live!’

This is a success that has only continued, and Porn Time now boasts over 598,580 active users, who were responsible for crashing both the Porn Time websites servers, and those of Pornleech, the torrent tracker site Porn Time pulls its content from,

We weren’t prepared for such an eruption of people coming to get Porn Time and our servers crashed. Twice. Pornleech also crashed!! They just couldn’t handle the heat. It took them a few days to get their act back together and got back online just recently. In the meantime we went and fetched some more sources of content, The Pirate Bay for example, which made our users happier and more addicted.

Now it should be noted that Popcorn Time fork Popcorn4ever.to has included an x-rated category for some time now, but this does not seem to have caught the public’s… er… imagination… in quite the same that the dedicated Porn Time app has.

In addition to Windows, OSX Mac and Linux versions, PornTime is now available for Android devices, which is only likely to increase its popularity,

Anyone can understand why an app like this on your personal mobile device is the best thing that has happened to humanity since bread came sliced. Creating the first Android app was pretty easy because of Popcorn Time’s awesome Android app. We just took their app, made some cosmetic changes, and voila! Now you can see content that puts a smile on your face.

iOS users shouldn’t fret too much, though, as the PornTime team promises a version should be available for their platform in less than a month.

Porn Time can be downloaded from here. Please do remember that as with Popcorn Time, content streamed on Porn Time is usually copyrighted, and because Porn Time uses the BitTorrent protocol, streaming using the app looks to an outside observer exactly the same as downloading. We therefore strongly urge all Porn Time users to protect themselves using a good VPN service.
