10 best torrent sites for videos, movies and TV series

Stanley Kubrick’s “A Clockwork Orange” can be obtained using a Netflix subscription or rented from iTunes for $3.99. The tape is already 50 years old, the director died a long time ago, but viewers are still being asked to pay for watching it.

Although renting in cinemas has ended, the studios that own the picture can not miss the opportunity to earn more on it. In moments like this, torrents help out a lot, but finding a reliable and good site in 2021 is not an easy task.

My name is Nicolas Cuts, I am an employee of Switcherry VPN, and in our new article we will analyze which torrent trackers are better suited for downloading movies, what affects this and how to use them safely.

What to pay attention to when choosing a torrent for videos

If you plan to use the first torrent site you find, it is better to not do this. There are thousands of such resources, but there are not so many reliable and good ones.

So what are the criteria for rating torrent sites?

Speed

Torrent trackers work by file-sharing: the more people participate in the process, the faster the download. Users are of 2 types: seeds and leeches.

  • Seed — the one who downloaded the file and distributes it to others;
  • Leech — the one downloading;
  • Peers — the total number of users participating in the distribution.

When downloading a small video, the number of sharers is not particularly important, but in the case of a Blu-Ray movie or the eight seasons of Game of Thrones, the download will take a long time. Do not forget about the importance of having a fast internet.

Popularity

The best torrent sites are the oldest ones: there is well-established work, more users and content, higher speed and better moderation. Popular trackers in many countries are blocked by government agencies, making it difficult to access them. But yet it is difficult to sink a pirate ship, due to the many “mirrors” – exact copies of the site located at different URLs.

Size and updating of the library

Good torrents contain not only popular movies, but also lesser-known ones that are not available elsewhere. Therefore, the more extensive the library is and the more often it is updated, the less need to search for another resource.

Safety

Among the thousands of torrent sites for videos, there are many where the distributions contain files with malware. Reliable sites have long established a system for checking for viruses — this does not give a 100% guarantee, but it helps to weed out most of the garbage.

VPN support

Downloading something through a torrent tracker is a big risk, especially in countries where fines and imprisonment are imposed for copyright infringement. It is important that: the tracker supports VPN connection, and at the same time your privacy is not violated, and the speed does not fall.

TOP 10 torrent sites for videos

This list contains the 10 best sites in 2021.

Attention! The data on monthly visits is provided approximately, since it is difficult to calculate exact figures due to the many mirrors and constant blocking.

The ratio of seeds and leeches is given according to the average figure of 3 popular movies on different platforms.

The Pirate Bay

The Pirate Bay search page

The resource is rightfully considered the largest torrent in the world. The Pirate Bay was sued several times, it was blocked, but after 18 years it still works. The site contains millions of videos, including an impressive collection of movies. The interface is intuitive, there is no advertising, and the download speed is 6-6.5 mbit/s. It is blocked in most countries, ranging from the United States to India and Iran.

A disadvantage follows the advantages: it was possible to get rid of advertising by introducing a service for mining cryptocurrency. During the time that you are on the site, Monero cryptocurrency is mined using your device. This process uses 20-30% of the computer’s power, and is disabled by the ad blocker.

YTS

The resource specializes in movies, although it does not yet have such an extensive library as The Pirate Bay. Nevertheless, the site administrators try to provide videos in high quality, so even black-and-white movies of the 50s can be found in 1080p. YTS has a large audience, which is why there are always enough seeds for distribution, and the download speed is about 4 mbit/s.

Due to the narrow focus, you will not be able to find TV series or TV programs on the site. When searching and downloading, you will have to watch a couple of ads. The torrent tracker is banned in the USA, Australia, Canada, etc.

You can download using a magnet link, that is, the distribution is sent for download to the torrent client without the need to download the torrent file additionally. It is worth noting that this feature is also available on many other trackers.

Thanks to the rating system, it is convenient to filter out bad distributions directly on a sharing page. The download speed is about 4.5 Mbit/s. The resource is not available in Italy, Denmark, The UK, Finland and the Netherlands.

A good site where the download speed is consistently kept within 4 Mbit/s with a reliable internet connection. The resource hosts proven torrents, and the choice of movies and TV shows is quite wide. The search function, thanks to a variety of filters, helps you to quickly find what you are looking for.

However, due to the not-so-great popularity of the LimeTorretns, there are often not enough seeds on old torrents, which is why loading can be slow. Otherwise, the site is decent, and there are no more ads on it than on similar resources. It is blocked in the UK, USA, Australia, India, etc.

Over the short period of its existence, more than 40,000 movies and about 2,000 TV shows have been uploaded to the tracker. Videos are the main specialization of the tracker, so everything is done for the comfort of users: description, user ratings, duration, etc.

There are no multiple sharings of one particular movie on the site, and the number of seeds and leeches is not displayed. Instead, you can find out how many times a file is downloaded and choose the desired image and sound quality. Online viewing is also available, but keep in mind that the quality will not be higher than 720p until you sign up for a paid subscription.

WatchSoMuch — is the rebirth of SevenTorrents, which was closed due to lawsuits in 2018. The site has not yet been blocked, and the owners themselves say that they are going to find a legal distribution path, for which they introduced a subscription.

Is it legal to download videos from a torrent

The use of a torrent for file sharing is per se legal, but if copyright is violated in this way, then problems may arise. For distributing and downloading a movie from 60 years ago, it is unlikely that punishment will follow, but in the case of new movies, there is a great risk of falling out of favor with the law, especially if the picture is still being rolled in cinemas.

Lesser-known and amateur movies, from which the copyright holder no longer receives profit, can be distributed quite freely. However, there is no guarantee that the owner will not suddenly want to make their claims many years later.

Also note that a work whose creators died 50, 70 or 80 years ago (depending on the country and a number of other factors) becomes public domain. Hence, some comedies by Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and other creators have recently acquired this status, and there is no penalty for distributing them.

Let’s look at the situation by country.

USA

In the United States, there is a “Copyright Law ” – the DMCA, which penalizes persons who have uploaded a file to a torrent tracker and violated copyright at the same time. That is, for the illegal distribution of a copy of the movie, the copyright holders will file a lawsuit, as a result of which the case will go to court. The penalty is a fine of several thousand to several hundred thousand dollars, and in some cases one can go to prison.

As for downloading, everything is simpler here. Providers and special agencies are charged with monitoring the distribution of pirated content. Often, you will simply receive a letter with a warning that in the event of a repeated violation, the provider will stop providing services. By experience, there were several cases when lawsuits were filed for downloading, but they did not reach the court.

Europe

The situation is similar to the United States in a number of European countries, especially in Germany. They do not put people in jail for distribution there, but they will have to pay a fine of 150 to 1000 euros for each piece of content. The same applies to those who download, and private companies are engaged in tracking these people. As a result, after downloading the movie, you risk finding a letter with a notification of a fine in the morning.

This is in Western Europe, but in Eastern Europe this issue is in the “gray zone”. Meaning, it is legally prohibited to upload copyrighted content to a torrent, but it is rare that someone monitors compliance with this law.

Asia

The most severe punishment for piracy is in Japan, where a fine of up to $100,000 or a prison sentence of up to 10 years is the penalty for distribution, and a fine of up to $18,000 and a prison term of 2 years for downloading.

In China and India, everything is simpler: there is a fine and sometimes a prison sentence for distribution, while downloading is relatively unpunished.

Downloading all other content – songs, readings, computer programs, etc. – is also punishable. But we are ready to share with you the lists of torrents with which downloading music, books, software, videogames will be safe.

How to safely download videos from torrent sites

Besides an antivirus and a good tracker, it is of paramount importance to get a reliable VPN. Without it, they will quickly find you and at best they will issue a fine, but at worst they will send you to prison. The importance of VPN is also mentioned on many sites with torrents:
