As a result of the UK High Court ruling, media will all be forced to comply as much as they have with popular Bittorrent websites like ThePirateBay even if those blocks have later on been rendered as useless.
Judge Briss cited the real motive of Popcorn Time is used in order to watch pirated content on the internet and it is becoming obvious that it is the app’s purpose. The judge said that no one really uses Popcorn Time to watch lawfully available content.
None from the existing internet service providers in UK opposed the order of the High Court. But accordingly, it is just a matter of time until popcorntime.io, flixtor me, popcorn-time se, and isoplex.isohunt.to are also blocked.
But since Popcorn Time uses p2p protocols, those already using the software should not experience any issues.
It can also be recalled that when torrent sites like Kickass Torrents and EZTV were curtailed in the UK, hundreds of websites came out in their places and proxy sites helped users evade the blocks on original websites.
