Project Free TV, YIFY, PrimeWire blocked in the UK

Project Free TV, YIFY, PrimeWire blocked in the UK
Mittal Mandalia

Movie industry in the UK is having a ball as far as blocking of sites allegedly involved in piracy is concerned as courts have asked UK ISPs to enforce a blockade on Project Free TV, YIFY, PrimeWire and others in its latest order.

ISPs in the UK have given up on the idea of standing up against the blockade and copyright right holders have made it their point to expand the blocklist as much as possible. About two weeks back, a court ordered blockade of SolarMovie and TubePlus, which will be enforced sometime next month.

This week the High Court has asked all major ISPs including BT, EE, O2, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media to block access to YIFY-Torrents, PrimeWire, Project Free TV, Vodly, and WatchFreeMovies. It seems that Sky has already implemented the blockade on YIFY-Torrents as our sources have revealed that Sky is displaying an “Access Blocked” message while visiting the site.

Getting a torrent or steaming site blocked in the UK is a mere paperwork formality since ISPs have completely stopped defending against these orders. As it stands a total of 33 sites have been blocked in the UK including The Pirate Bay, BitSnoop, ExtraTorrent, Torrentz, 1337x, Fenopy, H33T, KickAssTorrents, among others.

The Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU) of the City of London police managed to successfully order take downs of several major torrent indexes including ExtraTorrent, SumoTorrent, and MisterTorrent without any sort of court orders in October.

    ok, no problem, also exists yify.tv or viooz.co

  • Joe Nolan

    OK no problem I will just change my ip address

  • 2dogsnacat .

    use opera browser, click on off road and it all works as before the block :)

  • Not impressed.

    If you use chrome just use Hola unblocker….very easy to get around if you know how to use a proxy!

  • Shit Off

    Dear ISPs you are all cunts. Stand up for the customers who pay for your services you massive barrel of sh*t cunt cunt cunts.

  • Alexandria Taurus

    i see the politicians and major ISP’s are still not blocking the pedo sites or sites that promote violence against women,rape torture mutilation and a whole lot more gruesome sites,but there again these sites are getting so many hits from the houses of parliament and other governments offices it wouldn’t surprise me if these sites are protected by laws to ensures unrestricted access,but taking down harmless sites such as yify seems to be the main goal of these perverts

  • Alexandria Taurus

    lets face it,if the UK government cant tax it,it then becomes illegal,this is and will always be about greed,nothing else

  • Gryphy

    Hola has allowed me to see shows on mtv i couldnt but still blocking freetv

  • Maren Preußler

    i am furious!! no more project free tv???

  • Tom Wilkinson

    shit better not go on google chrome and use Hola

  • Cat S

    I concur!!!!!!!!

  • heather

    For goodness sake, just because the gov can’t tax these sites -.- Meanwhile, they make anyone with a tv pay for the BBC so arses like Jeremy clarkson can get payed dumb amounts of OUR money for doing a few episodes of ‘driving like a prat’ every year, I don’t even watch anything on the BBC, I’d rather have sites like project free tv where I can watch mainly american documentaries, all the 100s of crappy sky channels don’t even have. As for sites like Netflix etc, they’re no substitute. They don’t even keep as up to date with simple tv as these sites. They’re just tryna cash in on these sites getting ‘outlawed’ anyway. The internet is meant to be a place full of sharing information & we all pay for those internet licenses anyway when will the moneybags draw the line!

  • Dan Cox

    Try http://yify.unlocktorrent.com/browse-movie That works and you can still download!!!

  • Negrakitty

    This is soooo phuckin out of order! I just tried to catch up with my latest us tv show and biitch Sky broadband blocked it! I am bereft at the idea that all these brilliant streaming sites are going to be blocked in the UK which provide better and more up-to-date content than their paid-for sites and pose less harm to your laptops. Ridic the kind of BS avail on the internet and this is what they attack. Praying that new sites will be created and FAST!

  • Negrakitty

    Pls pls could you elaborate further for us who don’t know such technological wizardry and are scared of having to return to pay through the nose to watch films in cinemas full of oinks that won’t shut up

  • Negrakitty

    Is that possible when you use an ISP?

  • Negrakitty

    Ok – I seem to have bypassed this by using a website that hides your IP address phuck you entertainment moguls who want to suck us dry :-)

  • wethrowpie

    The UK has become an absolute police state. They arrest you in the middle of the night for saying bad things about muslims.

  • tupac shakur

    what so they block a torrent movie site. the other day I was watching the news a ten year old boy hook on hardcore porn raped a seven year girl but know porn sites were blocked at all why to go judge

  • tupac shakur

    linked worked fine thanks am from the uk

  • John Mc

    Time to use a VPN. I’m not a computer wiz, but surely UK based ads won’t appear now, right? So that’s unfortunate -_-

    Soon everyone will be using VPN’s and it will look like nobody is online in the UK. I’m never buying a DVD ever again.

  • John Mc

    Doesn’t Hola slow you down?

  • John Mc

    Who wants to pay £30 a month for Sky when its all a scam? LET ME CHOOSE THE CHANNELS I WANT TO WATCH!!!!!!

  • pearla

    They are a bunch fucked assholes. They bothered about profit shares in the entertainment industry instead of live changing issues.

  • Jo

    Where else can I now watch tv shows online ?

  • Steven Htid Cunliffe

    proxykat.me is still up and running

  • Steven Htid Cunliffe

    u can still download movies at proxykat.me

  • chris

    tvlinks.cc still working in the uk

  • Steven Htid Cunliffe

    proxykat.me works also

  • Simon Lambert

    wow what a surprise another site blocked don’t they realasie another address will become available. my three main site that are still working. http://yify.unlocktorrent.com/ http://www.kickassunblock.net/ and http://www.torrentday.com and thats on virgin media. if that fails and you run out of options tor project https://www.torproject.org/ and use the masked IP to access the sites you require its not just an access point to the dark web but a tool there will always be a way round accessing the site.

  • Matt Thompson

    I agree. Look at the profits movies are still making e.g The new Thor movie, currently at $36.6 million profit…..there’s more than enough humans out there for movies to be paid to be seen and movies to be downloaded. If the people who are downloading from yifi get stopped i doubt they are going to start paying to watch movies, so if the greedy self centered government somehow stop downloading the profit values would barely change anyway. The dumbass government thinks if they prevent and stop sites like Yifi that all of the sudden the user will be converted to doing what the government wants online. The internet is just a wide area network, they will never stop us sharing what we want!!

  • Sinister Lord

    Absolutely infuriating! Interesting to note too how it’s the City of London Police those guardians of the banksters that are enforcing this.

    Never give in folks – they must realise how ineffectual all this paperwork is. A lot of these sites now have ‘proxy’ addresses such ‘xxxxxxxxproxy.com’ which currently work fine, so you may have to update your bookmarks. Failing that, try a VPN which will make it appear that you are outside the UK – a good free example is Cyberghost but see what’s best for you.
    This will also go a long way towards anonymising you and so piss off the GCHQ spooks.

  • Paul

    Just went to watch the latest episode of The walking dead on project free tv there: Error – site blocked. FUUUUUUUUUU

  • Connor Trigg

    The thing thats annoyed me the most is the fact that they blocked project free tv before i had a chance to finish breaking bad

  • Paul

    Found another site that they haven’t blocked yet. http://watchseries.lt/serie/breaking_bad You’re welcome.

  • Altroot

    Over and above, this is a class war.

    Those who are poor are to become outsiders it would seem. I really do think were on a path of dismantling everything as we know it today, and its as if the big corporations that rule the day want those affected to rise up so we stick out to be ridiculed.

    And for those who yell

    “if you cannot afford to watch or play then go without.”

    You must have no idea how hard it is being interdependent who’s paid under the legal wage whilst spending your food money on heating and travel fares after tax and rent and other household bills from the job that is just about keeping you alive.

    Whilst I’m aware that not everyone falls into this bracket, give a moment before you spat at us for feeling disappointed about this clamp down.

  • alice martin

    http://movi-watch.com is a great site

  • Jack Lawson-brown

    This is horseshit, why are they banning Project Free TV? it was the only source where i could watch american only programs either that or wait 2 years for Channel 5 to show it (I.E Castle) which is currently on season 6 on ABC yet on Channel 5, i think season 3? tried Netflix for more seasons but that only has the first two seasons, is movie piracy or illegal streaming really more important than other more serious crimes being committed on the internet? oh and they missed Isohunt of the list.

  • Yvonne Murdoch

    Download a program called spot flux, once it’s running it will mask your i.p address meaning that sites like project free tv etc won’t be blocked from you any longer – simples :)

  • Yvonne Murdoch

    Download a program called spot flux, once it’s running it will mask your i.p address meaning that sites like project free tv etc won’t be blocked from you any longer – simples :) This very thing allowed me to watch the latest episode tonight online…enjoy!!

  • Trevor DjTrevin Parkins

    Firstly I clap my hands to all those who stick up for freedom and democracy for to long these fat corporate/government wankers and I really hope there reading this have shit on joe public for to long. Have they not forgotten who put them in power. And secondly get some fucking back bone all you ISP if we joe public decided not to use your products are you then not going out of business. Its nothing but government control oh unless your a sick pedo MP or you work for BBC. Ps good luck keeping pirate sites offline. Rant over

  • Frackin Hell

    This is good. Point the spotlight on the sites that work by posting links to them. Great idea. R.I.P Project Free TV, you will be missed. Die UK censorship. Once again, this government, that wasn’t elected in (not that it really matters, they’re all heartless, faceless, suited, perverted monkeys), has taken another harmless enjoyment. I refuse to pay for a licence to be brainwashed. Fuck the BBC, il choose my own programmes tah.

  • Miketg23

    You all are bitching because they are finally finding a way to slow down piracy? It was only a matter of time and what exactly makes you feel like you have a right to watch copyrighted material for free?

  • Connor Trigg

    Thanks!

  • Mark

    hidebux.com

  • T.T.Jade

    ok but what if you need to watch a season of a tv show were eles can you watch it cause i dont think you can get season 1 on bbc iplayer?! (wolfblood). How about this block movies but keep tv its not like they’re giving us tv programmes not out yet (project free tv) plus I CANT GET SOME TV PROGRAMMES ON DVD YET! plus project free tv has helped me with homework for media, so therefor i think the only thing you should block is newest movies and not old movies and tv programmes. Thank you for listening

    No need to use any extension or third-party program. Just use a proxy. A very reliable and privacy-aware proxy (it’s an anonymous proxy, the best kind), is KPROXY.

  • Negrakitty

    THAAAANK YOU! None of the other hide your ISP sites worked – this is perfect :-)

  • http://dylricho.com/ Dylan

    Just use Kproxy.

  • john

    where do I click on off road?

  • 2dogsnacat .

    Top left corner click the opera button , on the drop down menu it says off road mode . Tick that :)

  • anon

    snap….. ive just started watching and got hooked half way through series 2!! nooooo

  • Bertie O’hern

    i only really use piratebay and kat and i have the hidemyass toolbar for FF which works like a charm

    stop watching tv and films and playing video games – its all mind control social conditioning anyway – worship man and the material world, hate on each other becuse of race religion and nationality/regionality, and be afraid and consume.

    if you pay taxes and earn less than £1000000 per year – YOU’RE A NIGGER AND SO AM I – were all niggers so stop hating each other and lets build a future for us by us not by the ruling class.

    If half the population gave a fuck we could get what we want. Unfortunately getting 31 people to agree on something is difficult, let alone 31,000,000+

    we should shoot every prime minister in the head until the party in power isn’t under control of the bank of england and international corporations – pirate party or anyone with a shred of decency/dignity common sense.

    The time for revolution is now not in 10/20 years when america is bankrupt and we have martial law and its too late – see v for vendetta.

    im not a terrorist im a fucking patriot and im also a compulsive liar so none of this is true (cough cough, wink wink) ROFLMAO

  • Aleesha Lewis

    Such BS! And now more countries are doing this too. Kind of ridiculous considering how easy to get around. I use the torch browser to surf the web and it comes with a site unblocker that does the trick. Plus, there’s always the dark intnet. Down with censorship!

  • aintno preacher

    They can tax drugs like Marijuana and yet they are illegal.

  • aintno preacher

    And I don’t really agree it’s “always about greed”, often it is just a total and utter lack of ability to assess social context. But I don’t dispute your general point; most of the decision makers are out of touch greedy arse holes.

  • Cat

    Yes. Read about VPN services [virtual private networks].
    Easy!

  • DopAdministrador

    Simple… Yify.tv

  • Dean Smith

    The thing i dont understand is the ones like Primewire (formerly 1channel) which is my fav site and im a regular on. Because its not technicaly breaking the law is it? As it doesnt actually host any content, so why the heck is it being banned. It would be like arresting someone for pointing the way to a drug dealers house, even though they don’t actually sell the stuff themselves…it would be like banning the yellow pages cuz a couple of the contacts were into a bit of dodgy dealing….i mean whats next, censoring phone books because you can access the numbers of people who break the law. I understand the torrent sites, they have the content on them, but not sites like Primewire and SolarMovie etc. There’s a reason i think these sites are good, and comes in the form of a comment i once read on such a site, posted under the film cars 2 when it was out in the pictures, i’m paraphrasing here but it was something like ”thank you so much for whoever made this site, i have a severely disabled son who’s disability leaves him unable to leave his bed, let alone his house, and when he sees adverts on t.v. for movies that have come out, its nice to know that he can watch them at the same time as people who can leave their house to watch them in the pictures. before this he would see the trailers and it brought a tear to my eye seeing his face watching them, because i knew he was wishing he could go to see them, and now thanks to sites like Primewire, he can feel a bit closer to being as normal as other people who get to see them when they first come out” Well i’d just like to add, to the greedy bastard entertainment industries that have taken this gift away from people like that, because the wods of cash in your pockets still isnt enough, because we all know you don’t lose that much money from sites like this, if you did, you wouldn’t be able to pay the artists you employ truckloads of money you pay them for what they do, and you wouldn’t be able to make the media you say these sites are stealing from you in the first place would you? Its ok for doctors,nurses, police, fire services etc to get paid pittance in comparison for what they do, but god forbid the entertainment industry loses a couple of Mill from the Billions it makes a week anyway. we love what you do, but we don’t steal it cuz we love it, we do it cuz we know you have enough fucking money in your pockets as it is. So take a bow for taking away the one thing that kids like the one i mentioned had to look forward to that gave them any sense of normalcy in the world, well done, great job…you greedy dicks. Comes to something when britney spears makes more for singing about…whatever the fuck she spouts, than someone does for saving other peoples lives. and then complains in an ad campaign they’re losing money to spend on fancy clothes and shit because of internet downloads, even tho you know they probably get the fancy crap for fuck all anyway, and they’re only losing a couple of mill from the hundreds of mill they still get. So again, Stand up and be proud entertainment industry for being the greediest fucks in the world, and not being afraid to let us know you are…well done you…….Now i must step down from my soapbox to find a proxy server in which to access my blocked sites from :)

  • kerryanneg9

    Is there a version to download for an android device to get around this block? As my galaxy s3 mini nor my tablet support zenmate. :( zenmate works perfectly on my pc to get around the problem. (BT- Chrome. ) Thanks

  • kerryanneg9

    http://proxykat.me/ now blocked for me :(

  • Eulicia Horne

    That does not work any more, just tried to access primewire.ag and I’ve been banned.

  • David Troy Barrass

    blocking sites is all well and good but there is always proxy servers out there that let you bypass all of the checks by your isp and then theres programs such as xbmc which can be installed on your pc,apple,android and even some mobile phones wich gives you access to to install a few good apps to watch the latest movies old movies live tv and much more instead of wasting time trying to block these sort of sites block pedo sites i agree totally with that because we all waste money on movies tv subscriptions and the way i see it we pay to watch repeat after repeat especially with sky

  • Louisa

    Oh, well. Back to television that I actually pay for. Such a shame that I don’t actually watch the tv that I pay for because shows are either repeats or completely banal, daft drivel.

  • David

    Torrent sites do not host the content themselves, they provide the tracker for the torrent, the files on torrent sites just point the way too. Torrents are shared over many computers, you may connect to a hundred different hosts to download a single torrent, they are completely decentralized. This is more of the same and it is still completely disgusting.

  • AuralVirus

    utter waste of their time. all they’ve succeeded in doing is bringing to my attention other sites i hadn’t heard of to add to a proxy/vpn and then access as normal.
    takes less than 5 seconds to learn via a google search on how to avoid the blocks.
