We all enjoy watching movies and TV shows during our free time, while travelling, or even while procrastinating. The pleasure of watching movies and TV shows intensifies when we can stream them for free, since most of the websites come with a subscription fee. One of the biggest File Hosting Index type of website, called Putlocker, allows users to stream movies and TV shows online for free. The website started back in 2012 in the UK and gained popularity quite rapidly. Moving forward, by May 2016, the website was taken down within the UK by the High Court of Justice in London for obvious reasons. In addition to that, Putlocker was even threatened directly by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), since Putlocker was recognized as a prime piracy threat. Following the fiasco, Putlocker changed their domain name several times but most of them would face the unfortunate event of getting blocked. Different versions of the website can be found online, but they are hard to access in many countries as the Telecommunication Departments of the respective countries have blocked them.
Now that we’ve gone through a brief a history of Putlocker, here are the 5 best alternatives to Putlocker:
