One of present delights of many Internet consumers are the websites and portals that offer movies and TV shows in a streaming regime, similar to Youtube, without and traditional downloading required. Movie2k was one of the most popular streaming movie portals known in the past few years. In February 2013 was rated as the 240th most popular website in the world, and in Germany it was rated as the 19th, which placed it in front of Amazon, Apple and even Twitter.
In May 2013, it was unfortunately shut down by MPAA, evidently due to copyright and infringement concerns. Various sources state that the owner of Movie2k, voluntarily closed down the server and canceled his contract with Voxility, the hosting company that provided housing for Movie2k.
