On the Tinyzone website, you can find a large number of films and series for free streaming, but we will clarify here whether this is really legal.
Big blockbusters, smaller indie films, and plenty of high-profile series. Tinyzone offers all of this. The website is completely free to use and does not even require registration. Is this new competition for Netflix and Co. or maybe not legal? In the article, we explain it to you.
Netflix itself has a large selection of films and series. Many of them are self-produced and therefore only available on Netflix.
Streaming on Tinyzone is illegal
If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Streaming on Tinyzone is illegal. How to find out? There are several details to look out for if a website seems odd to you.
Tinyzone offers various films that are currently still running in cinemas or are at least very clearly assigned to a certain major streaming service. “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” is the latest entry in the MCU and is still only shown in cinemas in Germany. This means that Tinyzone does not have the necessary licenses to offer the film here.
- Let’s stay with Doctor Strange. Tinyzone offers the film in CAM quality. In principle, this means nothing other than that the movie was filmed in the cinema with a video camera. You know that’s forbidden.
- It’s the same with series. For example, Tinyzone offers the South African drama series Savage Beauty. The series is a Netflix original and should therefore only be found there. If you’re fans of the series, you’re probably wondering if the show will get a second season.
What is the risk of illegal streaming?
Since Tinyzone does not have the licenses for some of their offers, it can be assumed that they do not have any licenses and are therefore an illegal streaming service. This used to be treated as a gray area, but since the European Court of Justice ruling in 2017, the laws have been tightened. If you are caught streaming illegally, you can expect a fine of 150 euros. So it is better to limit yourself to the usual streaming services. There are many beginner-friendly offers here.
- 1 month of free streams on Amazon Prime Video
- Stream series for 4.99 euros in the first month with Sky Ticket Entertainment
- Joyn offers its users a free trial month
- Netflix also offers a free trial month
