There are many obvious benefits and drawbacks to streaming TV and film content online. On one hand, they’re easily accessible and completely free. They differ in terms of quality, with some streams in HD while others are in low quality for easier loading times. On the other hand, they’re pirated content and it’s technically illegal for them to stream content that isn’t theirs. Putlockers movie 2016 is essentially Mega Upload reborn, with it serving as a pirate’s dumping ground of all sorts of the latest or rarest of movies as well as popular TV series. It’s Pirate Bay for people who stream and don’t want to bother downloading content through torrent. The war against digital piracy continues, but many consumers don’t care much about how they get their content, especially if it’s free.
The Dawn of the Digital Era
1. It’s the dawn of the digital era. People want to watch TV and films as conveniently as possible. In the past, people scheduled viewings at theaters or went home early to catch a favorite TV program or sports event. Nowadays, thanks to streaming and digital distribution, you can save time from trekking to rental boxes or video stores or waiting around your TV set to watch whatever you want to watch.
2. You also don’t have to find parking, search the aisles, ask the attendant or cashier about their recommendations, and so forth just to get your hands on your favorite titles or series. It doesn’t take a phenomenal amount of effort to search the database of a steaming site. Also, if you don’t get what you want, there are about a thousand more streaming pages out there you can search via Google anyway.
3. Sure, many of these sites can get DMCA’d and Put Locker itself has been banned or blocked in places like the United Kingdom. However, as long as piracy remains even more convenient than TV (wherein “free TV” is bombarded with commercials) and cable (which also has commercials advertising itself and its programs), it will remain to thrive. The actions of Netflix and Hulu is a step in the right direction when it comes to better adapting to the digital age.
