Coke and Popcorn now re-directs users to Netflix. Will that work? Apparently not, as users have quickly flocked to these top alternatives.
(Updated November 2017 with seven fresh links to Coke and Popcorn alternatives)
Looks like Coke and Popcorn users will have to find another source for illegally streamed content. Late last week, the owner shut down the popular website last week.
Prior to its surprise closure, users had noticed the lack of updates on the site. The announcement on their website explains why.
As many of you noticed, the site has not been updating for quite some time.
It’s time to say goodbye. Sorry to announce that Coke & Popcorn had closed down for good. 🙁
There are now a lot of other better places to enjoy online TV. We recommend Netflix.”
Coke and Popcorn’s operator didn’t specify why the site had suddenly closed its doors. Instead, the site’s owner warned users against using copycat websites and direct fans to use Netflix.
Coke & Popcorn will NOT return.
If you see other fake duplicates of CnP in the future who claim to be us, we urge you NOT to use them as they all will probably serve harmful virus & malicious ads and hidden software that WILL harm your computers & steal your private information.
Please be careful and use only safe, alternative sites like Netflix.”
Coke and Popcorn never received the illicit fame and controversy that surrounded top torrent sites. However, Netnames listed the website in a piracy advertising report back in 2014. Netnames classified the website as a medium-sized linking site that possibly brought in hundreds of thousands of dollars in ad revenue.
The site’s operator didn’t classify whether legal pressure forced the site into closing its doors. However, a sudden drop in advertising revenue may have forced the site owner to bid its users farewell.
In the message now posted on the site, Coke and Popcorn once again urged users to use legitimate streaming service Netflix. It even provided a link to the website.
The site’s operator has yet to issue a comment that specified further details into Coke and Popcorn’s closing.
Ignoring the operator’s request to use ‘safe websites,’ users have quickly flocked to these top Coke and Popcorn alternatives. Check them out below.
