Putlocker does not cost money to use. There are two ways to use Putlocker, either by streaming the movie from the website directly or by using one of the third-party website links provided.
Using Putlocker, individuals with an Internet connection can stream movies for free. As of 2015, Putlocker has thousands of movies, everything from new releases to classics. Movies are constantly being uploaded and changed.
One downside to Putlocker is the potential illegality of streaming movies that are copyrighted. Putlocker strives to take down any infringing content. However, this may not extend to the third-party websites Putlocker also uses. Another risk is exposure to viruses through ads and other content associated with streaming the movies.
