Popular high quality pirated movie torrent site YIFY has shut down permanently. YTS (the website) has stopped working two week ago and it has been responsible for some of the best movie torrents on the internet, releasing high quality movies which are mostly compressed to smaller files.
TorrentFreak has cited trusted sources that confirms its demise despite any official statement made from the group itself (YIFY).
As far as we can tell, YIFY has not been tracked down by law enforcement agencies; and the closure is voluntary.
We can safely assume that there will be other groups that appear to fill the void left by YIFY, but it is unlikely that they will be able to achieve the same quality and consistency of releases. It seems like it’s the end of an era for online piracy and movie downloads.
YIFY is the primary supplier of content for many of its forks, and the closure of the group could potentially affect the number of new releases available to the app.
There also a number of fake YIFY and YTS sites have appeared over the last week and users are advised to avoid any of these sites for security reasons. Download at your own risk.
