    I see someone commented that Stremio only shows where you can watch them at a price. That's obviously NOT true. It's way better than Popcorn Time, better addons, etc and there's free movies too. There are however movies that do actually cost money but 95% are free to watch + download.

    Stremio doesn't provide content for downloading it free like Popcorn Time. It is just an app to show where one can watch them movies at a price.
