I still use Pirate Bay mainly, but every now and then they block the proxies and it is a hassle.

Any decent alternatives, I haven't looked for years! :)

Torrent reactor usually has good links to other torrent sites. I'm using project free tv for straming stuff at the mo.

I use Torrentz (dot eu). It's basically a search engine for torrent sites. Just type what you need/want, and it'll display results across all major torrent sites.

From the results, I'll usually go to the Pirate Bay, Monova or bitsnoop, in that order of preference.

Pirate Bay is blocked by UK ISPs. We can use proxies but they get blocked frequently.

I hate using the referral sites that send you to another site. Too much hit and miss. Pirate Bay is very reliable and if it is not on there, it is not generally available.

Seems daft they have to block that and not all the rest!

Cheers for the suggestions.

Yeah my mistake, I meant Torrentz, not torrent reactor.

I use Frostwire and I think it's brilliant.

When did they do that, wasn't long ago I used them and I don't use proxies.
If you can grab the torrent though then just open up the p2p tracking options.

ExtraTorrent is pretty good for new Movie releases.

KickAss Torrents is a good all rounder.

EZTV for TV shows

https://tpb.pirati.cz/ Is a good Proxy for TPB. Almost always online.
