Putlocker is a platform that allowed us to watch movies and series, although, for some time now, many people have not been able to access the site anymore . Why? The answer is in the first section of this post.
Whether or not it is working, let us tell you that it is not the only one that allows us to watch series and movies without any payment. To prove it, we leave a list of ten sites with different but very good characteristics that you will surely love.
On the other hand, we warn you that these free contents are not very reliable, if you ask yourself why, here we will also show you the dangers to which we are subjected.
What happened to Putlocker? Doesn’t it work or has it been closed?
Putlocker is a site that allowed us to connect through streaming technology to watch audiovisual products such as series, movies, documentaries and many other things. His way of working was to offer content that is originally private (pay to view) for free.
For this reason, many of the countries considered this site a total threat, also because it was discovered that through it, many of the connected PCs suffered from a large virus infection.
For a long time, access was forbidden in many countries, but for about two years now, access has been denied to the entire public. If it is a fall or a page closure we do not know, since there is no accurate information about it.
If we try to enter the site we will see that a screen similar to the one shown below appears, informing us that the page is down. Obviously it does not show more information as to why.
Out of curiosity we entered the domain in a domain search engine
https://www.cdmon.com/es/dominios/whois, to answer the great question of many, if it was that the owners canceled it or it simply expired and never renewed.
As you can see in the image below, the domain has an expiration date of October 23, 2022, that is, it is still active.
In conclusion, the site is down, but we do not have concise information on the reasons or causes. Although, many have tried to enter by changing their IP they have not succeeded, confirming their fall worldwide.
List of the best alternative websites to Putlocker to watch series and movies in streaming
Putlocker is not the only place where we can watch movies via streaming, there are other pages that offer these same services. Next, we will show you a list of 10 sites well valued by their users, where you can see all the content you want in a free way:
This page has a huge catalog, offering more than 2000 movies and television shows. Its billboard is always updated to trends, a characteristic that ensures that we will find everything we have in mind to see.
Unfortunately, it is a rather complicated site to download files, because if we give even a single click out of place we will see an avalanche of pop-up windows on our screens, which will leave us inactive for a few minutes.
To avoid this bad moment, it is highly recommended to install ad blockers, since it is the only option if we want to navigate the site in a calm way.
It is a site that describes itself with its own name, made up of a large repertoire of HD movies. The main objective of this site is to provide audiovisual content for free.
In Popcornflix we will find the latest in cinema in its original language and also with subtitles. All the films are divided by categories, in a way that facilitates our search.
If we are completely addicted to TV shows, then this is the place for us. Here we can find all those famous series and see even the most current chapter. Although, the great defect of this platform is the number of ads that appear for each click. All its contents are of high quality and the best thing is that it has different servers offering loading speeds adapted to us.
123 Movies is one of those sites that offers us high Asian content, including novels produced in that continent and anime. It is considered to be a high alternative to Putlocker, due to its great ease of use and that it is completely free content.
Like many sites, it works with links to other websites where we can download or view them directly, so it does not store any content on its server. The fact that it is only a bridge means that in a way it is a more legal place.
SolarMovie is one of the sites with the greatest organization and neatness in its design, it has one of the best transmission lines, in addition to keeping a billboard always updated to the latest cinema content, this being a quite striking feature.
This website is rated as one of the best to watch movies, and according to the details that users most seek from this site, we can make the request for content that we want to see and it is not found on the web. Don’t you think it’s fascinating ?
Movies FM is a site with an architecture very similar to Solar Movie, although of course with a little more content. This has the appropriate optimization so that we can navigate quickly through all its corners, it also offers a huge variety in terms of language.
There we can find movies, TV shows, talent shows, documentaries and many more. It is an almost perfect platform, what does not allow its total perfection is the large number of invasive ads it has, although this can be fixed with a good ad blocker.
Even though you think Popcorn Time is the same as Popcorn Flix, let us tell you no. This more than a web is an application that allows us to watch movies from our computer with Windows, Linux or Mac. It should be noted that it also offers a version for Android.
To use it, we only have to install the application correctly on our device and enter the search engine by typing what we want to see, we select it and it will be reproduced immediately.
MovieBox, which in its translation means movie box, is an application that gives us the opportunity to watch endless movies through streaming technology. Previously, it was called ShowBox and due to some technical problems they decided to upgrade to a better platform.
This is a multiplatform software known as Sony Channel for LATAM and in other countries as Crackle. Obviously it is owned by Sony, so all its contents are licensed, that is, there is legality in them.
Although well, it does not contain many films because its strength is the series. Its interface is quite simple and clean, and it also has an excellent content player that equalizes sounds very well.
List of the best payment portals to watch series and movies legally
The portals to watch series and movies can become very important for our lives, however, due to the different risks that use the free service portals, it is more advisable to make use of those where we must cancel our subscription.
Here is a list of the best payment portals:
Netflix today is the most famous platform, founded with the intention of entertaining people. Its service consists of streaming technology, which offers audiovisual content from one point to another direct that is the client.
It has different subscription offers, and we can find it available all over the world. On the other hand, one of its best features is its multiplatform architecture, allowing us to download it to our PC and mobile equipment.
HBO is the second most requested program and it is because it offers excellent series, but this is not the only thing, because there we will find the highest grossing films. It’s stiff competition to Netflix and it seems a lie, but if you get a bigger boost in viewership, you can beat it.
Amazon Prime is one of the excellent platforms to watch videos or access quality books. This platform became known for the reproduction of the documentary A Head Full of Dreams by Coldplay.
Although many people do not know how to use this site, let us tell you that it is really simple, and because it is from the same company as Amazon, it is a completely reliable place that has quite entertaining content.
RTVCPlay is a platform that offers content on demand from the Colombian public media system, with a large number of series and movies. It is true that at the beginning of this section we commented that the platforms on the list were paid, but this works as if it were, so it has totally free audiovisuals.
Finally we have Disney + known for the successful alliance with the world of Star Wars and Marvel. Although it has not yet been fully released, in it we can enjoy all the Disney content.
It is said that if the platform continues to be perfected, it could attract the view of the entire child and youth community, as we know it is a large population, which would not hurt this company.
What are the risks of watching videos on “pirated” streaming platforms?
Watching movies or novels on the Internet is very dangerous, not only because it is a somewhat immoral activity, but it can also bring risks to the health of our PC and privacy.
As we already explained, when we see these contents we must close several pop-up windows, as well as avoid downloads that are activated automatically. Every time a download is completed, a computer virus is installed on our computer, stealing all the information as quickly as possible.
This strategy of injecting viruses through advertising campaigns is called adware or malvertising, which is currently the most widely used modality. If you wonder what personal information they can steal, then think about your bank codes, credit cards, home or work address, person with whom you negotiate something and others.
Its danger is great and it is not something that we should take as a game, for this reason we must always use a good antivirus with a legal license that is usually paid, since these are the only way to guarantee greater security.
If you have any questions, leave them in the comments, we will answer you as soon as possible, and it will surely be of great help to more members of the community. Thanks!
