Since its launch, it has operated under many subdomains, including .com, .xyz, and .fr. You do not need to make an account to use the service, but it obviously won’t have as clean a format as paid services like Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. CouchTurner might be free but also has numerous downsides.
Here are some of the most common questions about CouchTurner:
Is it legal?
If you want to plead plausible deniability, this is where I suggest you stop reading, but…no. It is not legal. It helps you pirate stuff, and anything with the word pirate in it tends to be illegal.
The site owners have not paid for the content they allow you to stream, so technically, they have violated copyright laws. It spreads content from different media sites that do have a license to distribute that content…and that is frowned upon, to say the least.
Is it safe?
CouchTurner does let you stream your content without getting your system infected. However, it has several advertisements that make you feel like you are walking in a minefield. If you are suddenly asked to sign in or update your media player, it is not CouchTurner asking you to do so. It might very well be some kind of virus or malware that will infect your computer the moment you click on it. It is technically safe to use CouchTurner, but you still need to watch where you click.
