The controversial Putlocker (putlocker.is and putlockertv.is) is an online index of hosted files and a website used for streaming entertainment media such as films and television series. Controversial, that is, not to the user but, rather, to the industries it impacts.
What happened to putlocker?
Put simply, Putlocker is a media streaming website which is free to its users. Started in January, 2012, the site immediately received 800,000 visitors. It was blocked by a court order in May 2016. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), among others, has made it clear over time that it considers Putlocker to be a freebooter in the area of piracy of its product.
As of November 2, 2016, the putlocker.is is active again, but just for the apparent purpose of redirecting users to putlockers.ch. This .ch site was disabled on February 27, 2017, after a ruling in favour of the Belgian Entertainment Association (BEA). Following the seizure of the putlockers.ch address, the previously used putlocker.is domain was made functional again.
So with Putlocker down a lot, no matter what its extension, are their alternatives?
The point should be made, first of all, that there are “legal” sites like Hulu, Netflix and so on that offer inexpensive alternatives to going to these free streaming sites which, by their nature, come and go in similar manners as the Putlocker group.
Having said that, here are, in alphabetical order, are websites that may help you find free media streaming. This is provided that the sites themselves are up and running and if the sites that may be recommended with the sites may be up and running as well. There are hundreds.
