Pirated Movies Through Chromecast

Pirated movies may soon become more available once everyone realizes that Google Chromecast is now compatible for Windows users.

The news was broken to the public by Popcorn Time, a streaming service for pirated movies. They also added that Chromecast-ready update is also in the works for Mac users.

Chromecast is Google's US$ 35 streaming device, which sends video from your Chrome browser or from services like Netflix and YouTube to your television. Google announced a series of pending updates for Chromecast last month, including the ability to mirror anything on an Android phone or tablet on your TV.

Popcorn Time, an open-source project launched earlier this year, has gained popularity thanks to its simple interface and its commitment to covering users' digital tracks.

Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but it's safe to say the company won't be thrilled with this development – Popcorn Time says it was removed from the Google Play store within 24 hours of its debut there in May.
