Our experience using Popcornflix
We found that Popcornflix is very user-friendly. Whether you are watching from an app on your TV, streaming device, or from a PC you can easily navigate around the app’s interface. Currently, there are many movies in which you can stream right now without having to have a user account. You can also watch dozens of free TV episodes of several TV shows.
All the different genres can be accessed through the menu, such as Comedy, Action, Thriller, Drama, Family, Old School Cool, Foreign Films, Mystery, Standup Comedy, and Documentaries, among others. Within each genre, the movies are listed without any sorting options. However, you can instead pick the New Arrivals or Most Popular link to see those movies, regardless of the genre.
When it comes to the quality of the stream you should expect to see DVD quality. It’s hard to say exactly what the quality is since you are not able to change the quality of the stream. However, even with the DVD quality that you get, you are still given a decent streaming experience.
While watching a few movies at Popcornflix, you might notice a trend with the advertisements. More often than not, a 15–20-second advertisement will display at the very beginning of the movie, with more commercials throughout the video.
Since using Popcornflix we have not experienced any issues with buffering. Many users claim to have issues with buffering or streams that only play for a bit before crashing. There could be a number of reasons users experience such issues however we have yet to experience any of these issues. As long as you have a decent internet connection with good download speeds you should get the same results as us.
Should I use Popcornflix as my main streaming app?
Although Popcornflix is a great streaming app that has a lot of decent content we do not recommend this as your only source for movies and TV shows. There are many other apps out there that offer more content with better quality. You can find other streaming apps by seeing our install guides.
Having more than one app for streaming is always recommended. Streaming apps are constantly changing and shutting down with little to no notice so having a backup is always a great idea. Popcornflix is a great backup source for movies. The TV content is a bit lacking on Popcornflix so if you are looking for another backup source for TV we suggest looking into other apps.
Our final thoughts about Popcornflix
If you are looking for free access to movies and some TV shows then Popcornflix is a great source. There are many things that Popcornflix could improve on such as the amount of content and quality. The advertisements that are shown before the stream begins and during the stream do not take away from your viewing experience. Having a backup source for extra content is something all cord cutters need and Popcornflix is a great backup app. For free content with reliable streams, Popcornflix is perfect for any cord cutter.
