The corona virus pandemic has led us all to stay indoors. With movie theatres shut down and other avenues of entertainment out of reach, an interesting rise in the % of people streaming films and shows online has been observed.

Naturally with limited resources to keep us occupied throughout the day, Streaming service search engines are on a constant hull to find the film/show of your choice. While the internet is booming with so many online streaming options, it gets tricky and time consuming to find the right streaming services.

A lot of these streaming search engines and websites either are cramped up with unnecessary ads or redirect links that redirects you to nasty websites and sometimes to complete roadblocks; places that don’t even have the film/season/show that you were looking for, in the first place.

It can be so problematic especially when your food is sitting right next to you, waiting to be devoured, getting cold, asking you peacefully to be consumed while you are struggling to get that link to work so you can watch your favorite show. We all have been there. In case you’ve grown tired of that and landed here to see what works and what doesn’t, then don’t worry. You have landed at the right place, we won’t redirect.
