Zona is a BitTorrent client for watching streaming video content. Described as a "Popcorn Time beater",[1] the application provides a free alternative to subscription-based video streaming services (such as Netflix). In addition to on-demand movies and television series, Zona offers streaming music, live television channels, news, live sports, and games.[2][3] Zona has been criticized for being closed source as well as having an installer that has been implicated as malware.[2]
