The rise of streaming service is a testimony to the transformation in content consumption. The shifting patterns from traditional to digital mediums have brought about a complete overhaul in how we watch movies, TV shows, sports events, and other entertainment content. While premium streaming services such as Netflix, Prime Video, and Hulu have taken center stage, there are many free streaming services that have been a real pain to them.
Why? Because netizens don’t prefer spending $40-$50 on various streaming services when they can get the content in HD quality for free. Among the popular free streaming platforms, PrimeWire has made quite a name for itself. Users love to stream on this platform because they get access to all the top content in the best quality for free. Viewers can watch the latest titles from popular franchises such as Transformers, Star Wars, Avengers, Fast & Furious 7, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Terminator.
What is PrimeWire?
PrimeWire is an online streaming site where users get to watch the latest movies and TV shows. Unlike its sibling PrimeWire.ag, which is known for its music streaming services as well, PrimeWire has rebuilt its reputation, which was tarnished back in 2008. Now, It is among the most comprehensive platforms out there, offering users a complete media streaming experience.
What went wrong at PrimeWire.ag?
I think it’s important to share this information with you, so you know what you’re getting into. In the first of 2018, the piracy boards were flooded with claims regarding the website. Many users suggested that the website was no longer reliable and had fake links, phishing Trojan, and third-party VPN software that almost destroyed their devices. Thus, it’s not surprising that PrimeWire decided to drag its name out of the dirt and make a comeback as one of the most trustworthy streaming sites.
Has it been successful in doing so? Yes, it has, to a great extent. The design, user-interface, and controlled ads showcase the developer’s psyche. They are no longer hungry for money or spamming people. I’m not sure if it’s a group or just an individual who disbanded from the group. Whatever may have happened, it all worked out for good as PrimeWire has been able to restore its position by building trust among its audience.
Why should you stream on PrimeWire?
People flock to PrimeWire because it’s packed with content. You can watch over 1000s of movies and TV shows on this platform. From trending content to the top-rated IMDb content, you literally have it all on this website. The website stays fresh and is updated every alternate week; thus, you can discover thousands of titles and still find the content being added every week.
One of the best dark-themed websites I’ve seen in a while. PrimeWire is not just aesthetically pleasing, but it’s technically sound too. With a mesmerizing Thor banner in the hero section, you certainly get off to a great start. The red and white color combination may not be distinctive, but the crimson red really helps this website as opposed to the ‘blood-red’ used by many popular free and premium streaming networks.
Sure, as a new streamer, you can get overwhelmed by the number of titles available on the homepage. However, with user-friendly features such as the Content filter, you can sort content in no time. There are multiple ways in which you can sort content using the content filter. This includes using options such as ‘Last Added,’ ‘Most Viewed,’ ‘Name,’ ‘IMDb,’ and ‘Release Year.’ That’s not all; you even get to sort based on ‘Quality,’ ‘Content-Type,’ ‘Subtitles,’ ‘Genres,’ and ‘Countries.’
Rating based search option
While many websites clamor the homepage with recent blockbusters, only a few are capable of providing a genuine experience. With PrimeWire, you get to watch all the critically acclaimed movies and TV Shows by referring to the ratings on the website. You can check out various titles and sort them out using filters and then start streaming via the in-built player in a hassle-free manner.
How to access PrimeWire?
There are multiple ways in which you can access PrimeWire. 1. Search for the term ‘PrimeWire,’ and you’re likely to find the website on the first page of your search results. 2. Since there are so many fake portals surrounding the brand, it’d be better if you use the following link: PrimeWire to access the website.
Before you access the website, just remember that it’s an illegal platform, and thus it’s advisable to use a VPN. A VPN will help you protect your data as well as your identity from hackers and regulatory authorities. In most countries, the website has been blocked, and thus a VPN will help you bypass your local ISP.
I’m fascinated with the design of this website. The moment you visit the landing page, the dark theme and the sharp Thor banner grabs your attention instantaneously. The crimson red and white color combination flows well with the dark layout. The menus, content sections, and various other elements really add a lot to your overall browsing and streaming experience.
The header section on the website has nine options towards the left – ‘Home,’ ‘Genres,’ ‘Release,’ ‘Country,’ ‘Last Added,’ ‘Movies,’ ‘TV-Series,’ ‘Top IMDb,’ and ‘Top Watched.’ Towards the right, you’ll find two additional options and a CTA button, ‘Feedback,’ ‘Filter,’ and ‘Buy Premium.’
The hero section has an intriguing static banner in the background and has seven sliding banners. These mostly consist of the latest movies and are updated from time to time. When you visit the website, you’ll likely come up against various offers and banners which look hideous as they don’t match the website’s visual tone.
The body section is packed with thumbnails. There are as many as nine thumbnails in a single row. You can choose between ‘TV Shows’ and ‘Movies’ under the Most-Watched section. Towards the right, you have the ‘More’ button, if you want to check different titles. Overall, there’s a lot of content in this section, but it’s been arranged quite seamlessly, and thus, it doesn’t feel cramped.
The footer section is the simplest part of the website. There’s a newsletter bar followed by four navigation options – ‘Home,’ ‘Sitemap,’ ‘DMCA,’ and ‘Other Brands’. It looks spotless thanks to the B/W background-text combination complemented by a crimson red accent.
Unlike EuropixHD, PrimeWire does have a player that looks contemporary. There’s a massive in-built stream player, which sources content from credible links. Under the stream, you can find various server options. Under that, you’ll find options such as ‘Episode,’ ‘Season,’ and ‘Schedule.’
There’s absolutely no dearth of content on PrimeWire. If you were to judge the content strength by the homepage, you’d be pretty impressed with what it has to offer. Let’s check out some popular content that you can find on this site.
My Spy, Bloodshot, The Invisible Man, The Gentleman, Like a Boss, Underwater, Sonic: The Hedgehog, Birds of Prey, Bad Boys for Life, Dolittle, 1917, The Gentlemen, Jumanji: The Next Level, Gretel & Hansel, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Red Dragon, Smiling Friends, The Hand Bag, 8 Slices, Shaft, Troll 2, and Knives Out.
Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family, The Walking Dead, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Supernatural, The Flash, The Blacklist, How to Get Away with Murder, Transplant, Harley Quinn, Top Chef, Super Dragon Ball Heroes, The Profit, Bloom, Brew Brothers, Ocean Girl, Tommy and Station 19.
It’s clear that PrimeWire doesn’t host the content on its server. But all the links that you find on the website are legit. The developers haven’t thrown hundreds of links and rather provide you 3-4 best working links. I tried most of the links for multiple titles, and all of those seemed to work fine. Thus, let’s give credit where credit’s due – PrimeWire does have commendable streaming capabilities.
Plans & Pricing
While PrimeWire is a free streaming website, it also offers a premium package if you want an ad-free experience. It has four different plans – $5/month, $13/Quarterly, $25/Half-Yearly, and $45/yearly.
Suggestions I have for PrimeWire
While I do support the idea of charging a premium fee for an ad-free experience, the current browsing experience has left a sour taste in my mouth. There are just plenty of misclicks and notifications popping out from every corner. All of which is good enough to rub a user the wrong way.
While the rebranded PrimeWire doesn’t seem to carry on with any shady business, the fact remains the same – It is illegal. That is the reason why the service has been blocked in multiple countries. However, it may be because of its previous records. Nonetheless, as a streamer, you get to access links from the deep web, multiple sources, helping you watch the latest blockbusters.
