Using the Torrent Time plugin, anyone can stream movies or shows torrent like they would in on Netflix or YouTube.

“Why would I pay for Netflix when I can get everything on torrents?” is a hard question to fed off especially when Netflix isn’t offering all their content in India. But, Piratebay and Popcorn Time do. Using the Torrent Time plugin, anyone can stream movies or shows torrent like they would in on Netflix or YouTube.

The Torrent Time plugin has been developed independently but can be implemented by any website. Unlike tirrent clients such as BitTorrent or Nutorrent, the plugin for your browser on Mac or PC lets you play the videos in your browser without having to download it. For someone with 128GB of storage but constant access to WIFi, it is a lifesaver.

All you have to do is install Torrent Time, integrate it with Chrome, FIrefox or Safari. Then find the movie or show on Popcorn Time or Piratebay and you’re good to go. On Piratebay, the option to stream the torrent appears right next to the “download torrent” or “get this torrent” link.
