Is Couchtuner Illegal?

Is Couchtuner safe to use?
Now, that you’re aware of the fact that Couchtuner is illegal, you might be wondering with the fact that is it safe to use? Well, I had the same thought, so I decided to dig their revenue model. How the makers of this website earn money?
Well, as far as earning is concerned, Couchtuner generates its revenue by online advertisements on their website. So, if a user clicks on ads (accidentally or intentionally) on their sites, they’re redirected to other sites. In return, the owner of Couchtuner gets revenue from these ad networks.
Now, if you ask me, I really hate all these ads, especially when sometimes, as a user I get popup ads on the site. Moreover, even if I clicked any ad accidentally, I was redirected to some unknown or unreliable third-party sites.
So, is it safe to use these websites for watching tv shows & movies? Yes, but only if you access these sites with full precaution otherwise you might be redirected to websites that might actually harm your computer with malicious files, viruses, adware, etc. So, now, the main question is how anyone can protect themselves from these types of Malware?
Precaution you must take Before accessing Couchtuner.
Here is the answer to your last question. Follow these precautions if you want to protect yourself from viruses or unauthorized access:
- Whichever browser you’re using, you can find adblocker plugin from their respective store. This plugin will help you hide all the adultery on the website.
- Install a pop-up blocker from the respective store of your browser. This plugin will help you from annoying pop-ups that might download any malicious files to your computer.
- Install antivirus in your PC along with its extension in your browser. How an extension of antivirus will help you? Well, it’ll help you in blocking websites that might be harmful for you in every possible way.
11 Alternatives of Couchtuner
What’ll you do if Couchtuner is not working? Well, in that case, you have to rely on its alternative streaming sites to watch any tv shows or movies. So, here on the list, I’m providing some of the reliable alternatives of Couchtuner. Let’s find out about them one-by-one:
First & foremost, I’m listing one of the best alternatives of Couchtuner- 123movies. Well, as far as popularity is concerned, 123moveies is one of the oldest & popular streaming platforms on the internet to date. Moreover, it has been blocked several times worldwide. However, every time it has returned with a new proxy URL address. Here is a complete list of accessible 123movies proxy:
These are some of the 123movies proxy URL’s that are accessible at the time of writing this post. Besides, I will continue to update this proxy list so that you don’t face any problem in accessing 123movies website.
From the last decade, Rainierland has been one of the most popular videos streaming platforms. Now, that the internet is available in every country, Rainerland has its fixed audience from developing countries.
Now, coming back to the rainerland site, although, it’s free for everyone, it contains a lot of advertisements. Moreover, because of pirated content on their site, some countries have even blocked its URL.
Don’t worry, if the site is blocked in your country. Just google Rainerland & you will find several other proxy sites of rainerland. However, if you’re still unable to access this site, then the option you’re left with is a VPN (Virtual Private Network).
Now, if you ask me which streaming site is trending these days then my only answer will be GoMovies. Although, most of the content on this site is in English everything that you’ll find, will be in good quality.
However, as compared to the other sites, it isn’t that much easy for anyone to stream movies or tv shows on this site.
First of all, you need to sign up for an account on the site of GoMovies. Confirm your email id & that’s it. Now, after signing up, you’ll be able to watch the content for free at 1080P high definition quality.
Search for your favorite tv shows, movies & start watching it. However, if a particular movie or tv show isn’t available, then you can request it by filling out a contact form.
Are you looking for a way to watch classic old movies & tv shows? Well, then, PrimeWire is one such option for you. Although, it is banned in some of the countries because of no proper licensing & pirated content.
However, to make sure their users do not face any problem, PrimeWire site goes live with different URL’s every time it’s blocked in any country. But how it’s possible? Won’t the makers of PrimeWire get caught? Well, actually, all the videos of this site aren’t stored on their server. In fact, it redirects to third party links.
You can say it’s a legal loophole that’s helping them running this site. Now, coming back to the site, you get several options with it such as new releases, TV listing, how to watch, search show, etc. You can use these options to find to navigate your favorite movies & tv shows easily.
However, before recommending you this website, let me warn you with one thing, sometime this site might redirect you to porn sites. So, if you’re planning to watch movie on this site with your family than I recommend you to choose any other platform. Otherwise, you might embarrass yourself in front of your family.
Similar to PrimeWire, Vimeo does not store any files on its server. Now, don’t start comparing both of these two-video streaming platforms as both of them have different categories of videos. On Vimeo, all you have to do is click on the image of the movie you want to watch & the server will automatically redirects you to the video.
As for as content on their site is concerned, Vimeo clearly mention on their site that they’ll not be held responsible for any kind of copyright issue.
The best thing about Vimeo is that you don’t have to sign up for the platform. You can directly watch you watch your favorite movie or tv show just by clicking the picture link. Although, this streaming platform works better as compared to others but it does show adult 18+ content on their site. So, make sure to avoid this site from children.
Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, US or UK. You name it what kind of movies you want to watch. On Bmovies, you’ll find every movie soon after its release. Moreover, all the content on this site, is available in different languages.
Alternatively, you can visit the direct link https://bmovies.nl/bmovies.to

However, to access this website, create a new a put locker account using your email id. Once you’re done, you’ll get a popup to install the google chrome extension. But why? Well, according to the site owners, to get a smooth experience of the movie, you must install the chrome extension. “Put lockers” has provided free movies for all but you need to sign up to access the contents.
But as far as I’m concerned, I would never recommend you to install anything from these websites as now one know what harmful thing it might contain.
Sounds like Netflix, right? Well, out of all the alternatives of Couchtuner, Pureflix is the only mentioned site that provides access to its site with a subscription fee. But why they’re charging when other players in the market provide access to their site for free? Well, the main intention of Pureflix is to provide a seamless experience to its users. So, if you access this website with a subscription fee the unlike other mentioned sites, you won’t see any ads or popups on their site.

Before watching any movie, what would you do to find a movie that is good or bad? Well, as far as I’m concerned, I’ll look for the IMDB ratings of those particular movies & tv shows. Well, if you do the same, then Movie4u is one such website that is made for you. Is it that good?
All the thumbnails for a movie or tv show display its IMDB ratings. So, from now on, you don’t have to waste your time looking for it manually. All you have to do is find your favorite movie & see it’s IMDB score to decide whether to want to see that movie or not.
Now, coming back to the most irritating part, as soon as you open the website, you can clearly see advertisements across the top & bottommost part of the site. Moreover, some countries where the laws are strict for pirated content regularly blocks this site’s URL with the help of ISP’s. If you face the same issue then you can google movie4u to find several proxy websites or you can even access them from a virtual location using VPN service.
