Android TV is reunited with a working Popcorn Time Again

The past year or so something has been missing from my Life that something is a working version of Popcorn Time for Android TV, that’s changed in 2019 - We have a (mostly) working version of Popcorn Time. The last versions would crash very often and not even allow you to play anything at all. Which was a shame because there’s something good about navigating through a Native Android TV app to watch any film you want, kind of like the Netflix of Piracy. Casting is okay but to do it all on the screen with a remote is much more comfortable for me and probably a lot of you out there.

The developers working hard on getting the App in a working order have made a great effort to squash major bugs, the bulk of them are gone and we even have a updated user interface thanks to the new Leanback Libraries for Android TV, a bug that didn’t allow you to play Films because the tv remote couldn’t navigate to the Stream Quality is now fixed, a bug that caused the App to crash upon playing a Film has also been fixed!


"Popcorn Time for Android TV is not yet perfect"

Popcorn Time for Android TV is not yet perfect, I ran into issues when attempting to watch TV Shows, I would select one to watch and it would show nothing but ‘No Synopsis Found’, I found a workaround by going into the ‘More Shows’ Filter and choosing ‘Most Popular’ and then all of sudden all the TV Shows work, but if you do that then Movies have the same issue and you’ll have to do the same but with the Movies Filters. It’s a little annoying but at least there’s a workaround until the bugs have been fixed by the Developers. This particular issue has been reported and should hopefully be fixed soon. The Screenshot below shows the issue and another, where the Hero image is missing:

Don't Make it easy for them...

This App is a must have for anyone with a Android TV or Amazon Fire TV, there’s no other App that has this many films that’s made specifically for Android TV with high quality 720, 1080 and even 4K.

I can’t recommend this App without giving caution, it would be wise to only use this App with VPN as it is possible for your ISP to track exactly what Films you’ve been watching, they may penalize you somehow with fines or cut your internet off completely! I recommend using NordVPN, they’re the only VPN service I trust. You can save upto 40% with our affiliate link for NordVPN

Another great alternative is TorGuard, I've worked with TorGuard to bring you 50% off if you use the Coupon 'A-hAAn' at the Checkout.

The New Builds are a lot less confusing

The Developers have made it a lot easier to find the correct build, there's now only 2 builds for Android TV
