EZTV has offered seamless downloads of torrent files for latest TV shows for a decade, but the recent fiasco has left many users lost in the hunt for the next reliable source.
The popular torrent site announced that the site is shutting down for good after battling hostile takeover for months. EZTV was left in a dormant state for weeks but it now appears that the site has resumed normal operations.
If you have been under the rock for the past weeks, it is important you know that EZTV is no longer run by its original owner, largely believed to be Novaking, but has been taken over by a third party group. The site is being updated with the latest TV torrents but there is a lot of scepticism around the files that may be fake.
Popular torrent sites like The Pirate Bay and Kickass Torrents have issued warning to its users to be aware of fake files. In addition, they have suspended or disabled the official EZTV account, Torrent Freak reports.
While fellow-torrent sites have cut ties with the once-popular EZTV website, it is worth noting that Google itself expressed its disregard towards the website. When you search for EZTV.it, which is EZTV.ch now, using the term EZTV on Google, the official website link is not displayed on top. Instead, that has been replaced by news articles about the website's expiration raising questions on the authenticity of the site.
However, EZTV is not completely inaccessible for those who still wish to get their latest TV shows from the revived site. After importing torrent files from other groups in the initial run, the person running the show announced that EZTV is releasing their own torrents.
"We have a great news for you. [eztv] has started releasing torrents again. No more nested/unneeded files/folders you have complained about. The same quality like before," a person pretending to be Novaking said in an announcement earlier this month.
