Dozens of pirate streaming websites and torrent portals – which offer free and illegal access to Netflix, Sky TV and Prime Video content – have now been blocked in the UK. The Motion Picture Association (MPA) – whose members include industry giants such as Netflix, Disney and Warner Bros – have successfully obtained another blocking injunction this week which will see popular piracy sites banned for millions of users. The list of the now blocked domains was published by UK internet service provider (ISP) TalkTalk, and includes pages such as 123movies.online and watchserieshd.tv.
The latter, according to website traffic tracking tool SimilarWeb, pulled in almost 9.5million visits last month.
Here is the full list of piracy websites that have now been blocked, as reported by TorrentFreak…
flixtor.gy, flixtor.nu, putlockernew.site, couchtuner.rocks, couchtuner.show, couchtuner.cloud, ww1.123moviesfree.net, 123movies-one.com, www5.bflix.to, ww1.fmoviefree.net, myflixerhd.ru, myflixer.it, myflixer.pw, myflixer.to, soap2day.cx,, europixhd.net, europixhd.pro, europixhd.io, 123movies.online, 123moviesto.ch, 123moviesfun.ch, 123moviess.online, ww1.123movies.online, watch123movies.ch/home.html, levidia.ch, www.levidia.ch, www1.levidia.ch, levidia-ch.303.si, tinyzonetv.to, tinyzone.tv, tinyzonetv.cc, watchserieshd.tv, www1.watchserieshd.tv, www2.watchserieshd.tv, www3.watchserieshd.tv, www4.watchserieshd.tv, watchserieshd.io, and watchserieshd.co
If you visit one of these pages in the UK you’ll now be greeted with a message saying the site is unavailable, after a High Court order was issued preventing access to the site.
In another blow to internet pirates, the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE), who are an anti-piracy coalition that the MPA is part of, have now seized control of more IPTV websites.
IPTV stands for internet protocol television, and as the name suggests is a TV service delivered over an internet connection.
There are a number of legal IPTV providers, the most famous example in the UK being NOW (aka NOW TV).
However, the vast majority of IPTV services tend to be offered by internet pirates, who illegally bundle together paid-for subscriptions such as Netflix, Sky TV and Prime Video at a price that’s a fraction of the cost it would pay to watch this content legally.
So far the ACE has managed to seize control of the websites of over 200 IPTV providers, with any visitors now seeing a notice informing the site is “no longer available due to copyright infringement”.
And in the past couple of weeks the ACE has blocked access to the websites of even more IPTV providers.
The sites which no longer are available are smart5gtv.com, dynasty-tv.com, dynastytvrepair.com and cinemaqualidade.li.
Visiting these sites will now display the message: “Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment.
“This website is no longer available due to copyright infringement.
“Do not put yourself at risk by using or subscribing to illegal streaming services.
“You will be redirected to alliance4creativity.com.”
