    "Extratotrent.cc was great to get torrents on! There were so many options. I could get all the movies, music and tv torrents that were up to date. There are also hundreds, even thousand more torrents. It's defiantly a good alternative to kickass torrents. "


Did you know that the number one reason why people look after torrent sites is that they want to avail and make use of its products for free? Additionally, studies also show that people rely on torrent sites because of the unavailability of the item in their region. Meanwhile, entertainment can be experienced in an instant without going out to the hustle and bustle of the city. This is possibly done through downloading motion pictures, music, ebooks, and the likes for free through BitTorrent. So what's a BitTorrent? It is a file distribution system, where you can download a torrent file containing metadata about files and folders to be distributed, and usually also a list of the network locations of trackers, which are computers that help participants in the system find each other and form efficient distribution groups called swarms. 

There are also advantages of using Torrent, as such that even if you are suddenly disconnected from the Internet or your PC shuts down/restarts, you will be able to complete the download once you’re back online. Thus, there is no need to restart from scratch. Furthermore, files are easy to find and download. However, nowadays torrent sites are getting shut down due to copyright infringement. Included in the sites getting shut down is KickAss Torrents but numerous copycats came and some even managed to deceive users. This resulted in people looking for alternative sites to Kickass Torrents. Aside from KickAss, Torrentz also shut down but an unofficial clone was launched called Torrentz2.

    "isoHunt is honestly not a very good substitute for kickass torrents, especially when looking for music and video files. I did a couple of quick searches for popular content and came up empty handed. There are so many other sites out there to try -- I'd pass on isoHunt. "

    "Layout Wise, it is no doubt one of the best altermatives to kickass to download movies from. I was recently able to download a 1080p copy of The Nun from here. There are a lot of seeders. My friend gave me a tip to look at the number of seeders and the health bar and I must say they are very useful. NO ANNOYING ADS AT ALL. THIS MUST BE ON MY TOP LIST! "

    "When I added some filters in my router to keep my kids from searching for stuff they shouldn't be looking for, I inadvertently blocked my old go-to Torrent site. Now I can't exactly go compare the offerings head to head right now without having to futz around in my router config again, this alternative does seem to have a lot of stuff I'd be interested in, and that will certainly do for now. It's not like I have anywhere near enough time to watch all of the stuff I download anyway."

    "I thought this would be the app to end all downloader apps. At first it was great, and I was loving being able to manage all my torrent downloads! It was so much better than any other torrent app I've tried. But with the latest update, I'm finding it'd getting really dodgy getting the WiFi only option to work properly. I'm pretty sure it didn't turn off the background data and I've already eaten through my plan this month!"

    "I met a guy on IRC and told him about this VPN site and said verbatim "You need a VPN before you start using torrent sites to protect your computer." And he messaged me a few weeks later getting all angry at me for not giving him a torrent site. M8 pls, you need to start listening. Anyway, this might not be the solution for this problem, but since it's already here, I'm just going to go ahead and tell you that you NEED a VPN before you start using torrent sites. Protect your PC, protect your IP. Opera has been my go-to VPN ever since I started illegally downloading shit from the internet"
