The U.S. government?s anti-piracy crackdown on popular torrent sharing website KickassTorrents (kat.ph/kat.cr) and another popular torrent search engine Torrentz has left downloading fans in a bit of crisis. The daily dose of free games, movies and television shows seems to have stopped for now.
However, torrent sites have knack of evading the law enforcement agencies as new websites tend to replace the ones that have been ousted. Numerous clone and mirror sites of Kickass appeared since then but almost all of them were copies hosting the cached content of the downloads available earlier.
The sudden shutdown of the two most viable sources of free content have led to millions of users seeking alternatives with fresh content.?Here?s are the top five alternatives available that are available to downloading community:
The Pirate Bay has appeared as the most popular choice of peer to peer sharing fans since the unfortunate demise of KickassTorrents. The former number one which was once shut down and is likely to be again is now leading on top of the traffic charts as the world’s most visited torrent sites.?The website is blocked in several countries but several proxies seem to work around the blocks.
ExtraTorrent has emerged as second most popular and reliable torrent sharing website. The end reign of KickassTorrents too led to increase in traffic to the website. TorrentFreak quoted ET?s Sam saying: ?So far we got 200% signup, and 300% traffic increase at ExtraTorrent.??Here?s the link – http://torrentpw.com
Although the website is blocked across several countries including United Kingdom and Denmark, RarBg (https://rarbg.to) is once again a popular torrent sharing website.
The one of most popular Hollywood movie sharing sites, YIFY movies was mysteriously shut down last year. However, the website is now back at a new address Yts.ag.
The yify movies are known for better quality of movies at relatively smaller sizes with 720p movies around 700MB and 1080p around 1 to 1.5 GB.
The 1337x.org is too said to be receiving an increased wave of users as one of top five alternatives to KickassTorrents. The website is also?blocked across several nations but the proxies seem to provide access to the unlimited content available on the site.
