While we don’t support any service offering ways to download paid for movies for free, this choice is your own, we do like to highlight developments in this space from both the consumer perspective and legal outcomes like we mentioned when the Cartoon HD app closed down.
Today, we noticed some tweets from the official FliXanity page that likes to call itself “The New Cartoon HD”. The FliXanity service has a database of movies and TV shows to stream online from computer, iOS, and Android, but should they be trusted and is this all legal? We’ll let you debate the latter question, although interestingly FliXanity has raised a concerning factor about privacy with Popcorn Time in the last 24 hours.
After one Twitter user asked about alternatives to Cartoon HD, FliXanity replied with a claim that Popcorn Time takes personal information from devices or even uses your device. This is a massive claim by FliXanity, especially considering one of the most positively mentioned services has been Popcorn Time on the likes of TechCrunch.

Wild claim or founded? You can see the tweet by FliXanity above, although we cannot confirm if they’re blowing hot air with wild claims or if there is some fact to this. We’ll leave our readers to debate this in the comments, and of course the very idea of streaming movies for free with services like this.
