Although BlackBerry World itself will gladly rent or sell you movies, for those of you in the US, another option is now available. PopcornFlix is an online service the offers up streaming of movies for free provided you don't mind a few ads here and there.

The content is mostly independent films and webisodes created for the site but that's not to say there aren't a few gems in there. With over 700 movies already available and more being added on a daily basis, there is sure to be something to keep you entertained in the mix. Comedy, Romance, Horror, Drama, Action and more is all there on PopcornFlix and it's all available for free with no viewing limits. Well, aside from your data plan.

Do you realize you're unofficially "first" because a staffer hijacked the prized top comment box? lol

thatplaybookguy

Do you realize yet that not one F**K is given.

birdman_38

Dude, chillax. Just trying to have a little fun.

playbookster

"Unavailable for this device". Why does this happen? Stl100-1 in the Caribbean. No movies or music on BlackBerry world either. Isn't my money any good?

via z10 on cb10...

Read the posting. Only available in the USA right now.

Why should we expect people to actually read?

Iamanonymous62

Is it not possible that he's asking why apps like this, and movies from BB world are not available in the Caribbean? Don't tell me to read the post, I've read the post twice and still don't see the answer to this!
Why isn't his money any good? Why is this happening?

BruvvaPete2

I do see your point. Thanks for sharing a different perspective. I actually believe apps shouldn't be region specific (if all things are considered equal). Every now and then it's nice to get a point of view that didn't seem apparent.

buylocal_getaBB

It's happening because the adds that pay for the app are from American advertisers who don't care about people from the Caribbean or any where else. Sucks but that's the way it is

Iamanonymous62

What about Movies etc. from BB World?

sirk25

Oh man. You took the coveted 'first' spot. Haha

Okay I'll insert...Netflix in Canada sucks and we can't get this but sounds much like Crackle.

Crackle Is better, get the android port

thatplaybookguy

Crackle absolutely sucks. Never recommend it. Movies that are 50 years old and still have commercial. yes commercial, the same one over and over and over again.

AssetMobileLLC

Sounds like all the other streaming services that started for free now you have to pay to much for mostly crap videos and still get the "few ads here and there"

Gunsmoke_12

Not available for me, STL100-4 in good ol Georgia. Anything is better than nothing. I wouldn't even mind seeing Crackle.

It takes a lot to not shake my head when reviewing some comments. The first world problem of reading and comprehension seems to have skipped some folks.

hindsketchup238

STL100-3 Rogers.... just downloaded and watching a movie

Z10?..yes it can!

thatplaybookguy

Weird, im on rogers as well and its a o go. how you do it man?

I'm confused I did a search in app world and couldn't find it...

Posted via CB10

Rootbrian

Because its not available to Verizon users due to no updates.

athomas917

Crappy movie selection but it works well on AT&T. I recommend watching shake dance.

Posted via CB10

D.Vader

What category do you find Shake Dance?

Jimcmf

Netflix is dead.
TV and movies will be FREE soon.

D.Vader

@Jimcmf

Well expect the production quality to be reduced to Amateur YouTube videos. You won't be getting Iron Man 3 quality if there are no financial incentives to work 70 hour weeks producing Computer Generated SFX.

J Johnstone

Crackle works great from the BB10 browser, dropped netflix till they make a BB10 app (most of the content was old anyway). Don't watch a lot of movies on my zd but travel with my hdmi cable so I can use hotel tv to watch Z10 content.

Unavailable for this device nd doesn't come up when I search for popcorn!? ... im in Qatar on my z10.

Is it because I am in Canada that it is unavailable?...

Posted via CB10

...and it's another content store app not available in Italy/Europe. I don't even know who's to blame.

Posted via CB10

Rootbrian

American company who made the app and the website?

treaker

Can't get it in Canada!

Read the article again, it said usa only.

Zahi Ali

Not available for me here in UAE! (STL100-1)

BK_NY_RAY

Didn't know about this, will check it out. Hope it works outside of US though.

For those who don't know, Crackle is a site that offers free movies and TV shows and supposedly has a few ads but I have never experienced any, at least not from my PC, it's really amazing, highly recommend it.

Lastly, no Netflix on Blackberry is total BS and so is their excuse to not add Netflix because they don't think they will get that much new customers. So, Netflix thinks they will get more new customers by adding Netflix to video games consoles like PlayStation 3, 3DS when it has a small ass screen and PlayStation Vita when I don't even think it has sold three million yet? but not the millions and MILLIONS of Blackberry smartphones and Playbooks out there?

D.Vader

Do we have to interject Netflix (and formerly Skype) into every App announcement? :) Can't we just be happy Popcorn guys worked it out for BlackBerry?

Rootbrian

Netflix and SKYPE are assholes to be honest.

cali122

Not available on my z10... because of my country (switzerland) ? again...!

I wish I could receive it in the Netherlands..

LordofFlatbush

AT&T in NY...works just fine for me. You're not going to have top notch HBO on demand videos, but im sure u can find quite a few good ones in the bunch.

IgotsThis

Blah, streaming a movie will kill your battery by the time it's finished, unless you're using the hdmi or are plugged in while you're watching it.

Z10? Why yes it is.

Chris Westwood

Not available in the UK yet either :-(......

Can someone in the states get the .bar file and post it? This would be a cool app

Posted on my Z10

Mikey Gardner

Can someone in the US get the bar file and post it up for us to download? That would be nice, us Canadian did that for you guys :D

Posted on my Z10

D.Vader

May still block your country. Probably a licensing limitation.

toneytone

It really is a decent app and it works well.

djgup68

to bad this new popcorn app says it is not for my device when i scan the code i have a new z10

thatplaybookguy

Wow, so far this only works on ONE Person's z10, in the entire world. Great App.

D.Vader

Works fine for me. Likely the people it works for aren't complaining about it -- you know working. :)

blueblood2013

If you are on Verizon it won't work. If you aren't in the United states, it won't work.

Rootbrian

Laughs at everybody that didn't read the blog post and assumes its available everywhere.
