CartoonHD sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Yes, it is the one with all the controversies surrounding it. For the uninitiated, Cartoon HD is one of the biggest movie and TV show streaming apps that originated back in 2014. It created an uproar because it launched in Apple’s iStore and then Google Play Store but some time later was found to be completely illegal (still is!) as it streamed and displayed content without the right permissions. It made a name for itself because, firstly, it tricked both the tech giants Apple and Google to think it was legal and allow it into their respective app marketplaces. Secondly, it became wildly popular because it streamed content absolutely free without any registration or signing in hassles.
CartoonHD came to be known as the Illegal Netflix because of the similarity in their looks and their functions. This app is currently not to be found in any marketplace but is available on the Internet (like most things do!). You type in CartoonHD, and you will see millions of results where websites are offering it to you.
