Popcornflix to add over 70 Paramount films to library
The ad-supported movie and tv-streaming service Popcornflix has announced an agreement to license 70 films from Paramount Pictures. Among the wide range of titles to be made available to Popcornflix viewers are The Virgin Suicides, Paranormal Activity, Rugrats Go Wild and Jacob’s Ladder. The films will rotate in and out of the Popcornflix library on a monthly basis.
