ProjectFreeTV Blocked In UK: Streaming Piracy Site Becomes 33rd To Go Down. Which Free TV Show And Movie Sites Are Next?
What happened to ProjectFreeTV? Has it been blocked? Are there alternative sites, proxies or workarounds so I can watch free streaming TV shows and movies online without Project Free TV? These questions and more have been flooding social media as UK fans of the popular free TV show and movie streaming piracy website found, to their dismay, that the site had indeed been blocked. ProjectFreeTV along with YIFY Torrents ( which we've been expecting to get blocked for a while), PrimeWire, Vodly and WatchFreeMovies were all blocked in the last week by 6 popluar UK ISPs. The sites joined the ranks of nearly 30 other piracy and free streaming TV or movies sites which are now blocked in the UK by 6 popular ISPs including BT, Sky, Virgin Media, O2, EE and TalkTalk.
Where Can I Watch Free TV Shows And Movies Now That ProjectFreeTV YIFY Torrents, PrimeWire, Vodly and WatchFreeMovies Have Been Blocked?
While there are still a number of alternative sites and proxies available which provide free TV and movie streaming like ProjectFreeTV did, the number and quality are diminishing quickly. In the beginning, some ISPs tried to fight the blocks requested by the movie industry (MPAA). It seems, however, most of them have now given up the fight and are complying wherever a court order is given. In the words of a Virgin Media rep, when questioned about latest site blocks by TorrentFreak,
"We obey court orders when addressed to the company." '
ProjectFreeTV Blocked. Which Sites Are Next?
The efforts to rid the web of piracy sites, particularly in the UK, have been quite rigorous, as each month we hear of more free streaming TV and movie sites online shutting down or being blocked on ISPs. In fact, two more sites where fans can watch free movies and TV shows online are already being primed for the kill. According to Virgin's Gareth Mead, SolarMovie and Tubeplus will also be blocked next month.
Here is a full list of sites blocked so far by the UK.
Primewire, Vodly, Watchfreemovies, Project-Free TV, Yify-Torrents, 1337x, Bitsnoop, Extratorrent, Monova, Torrentcrazy, Torrentdownloads, Torrentreactor, Torrentz, Ambp3, Beemp3, Bomb-mp3, Eemp3world, Filecrop, Filestube, Mp3juices, Mp3lemon, Mp3raid, Mp3skull, Newalbumreleases, Rapidlibrary, EZTV, FirstRowSports, Download4all, Movie2K, KickAssTorrents, Fenopy, H33T and The Pirate Bay.

EZTV down? For those in the U.K. it might as well be. The TV torrent site is just the latest of illegal file sharing sites to be blocked and censored in the U.K.
As a result many are wondering if there's an alternative proxy or torrent site like EZTV Movie2k, Kickasstorrents or Piratebay? Or Is there a way to unblock these sites? The answer surprisingly is, yes, according to popular torrent news site TorrentFreak. Scroll to the bottom of the article TorrentFreak's feedback on how a new proxy can unblock EZTV ezRSS, Movie2k , Kickasstorrents and Piratebay and allow you to watch free movies online or download favorite TV Torrents.

What Happened To EZTV? Popular TV Torrent Site Goes Down Due To ISP Blocks
Earlier this year U.K. residents saw the block of Kickasstorrents and the Piratebay and have become increasingly more disgruntled as FACT and the MPA continue to work aggressively to squelch the access of all sites that illegally distribute copyrighted media such as movies, TV shows and music. It appears, however, those who support the free and open use and access of torrent sites like EZTV and ezRSS have come up with ways to get around the blocks. Indeed, they've figured out a way to unblock sites which have recent been blocked by UK ISPs such as movie2k, Piratebay, Kickasstorrents, EZTV and ezRSS.
Initially many sites responded to the block by setting up proxy servers such as Movie2k.sx or Piratebay.sx but even these proxies are becoming blocked by ISPs in the UK. TorrentFreak shares however, that a new alternative for file sharing and downloading TV torrents and watching free movies online has become available. A new free service called Immunicity is able to unblock torrent sites, proxy servers and even the latest porn filter.
New Web Based Proxy Offers Alterative To EZTV While Unblocking Torrent Proxies
The new unblock tool, Immunicity, comes from the makers of Torrenticity and is a web-based tool with an embedded torrent site and proxy unblocking service. Here is what the makers of Immunicity had to say about their free torrent site unblocker to the staff at TorrentFreak:
"We are angered by the censorship that is happening in the UK and in other countries across the globe, so we got our thinking caps on and decided to do something about it ... we saw that there was a gap in the market for anti-censorship services. VPNs are great but they often require a subscription, Tor is great too but it's very slow and getting it running just to browse a few torrent sites can be cumbersome. Immunicity is different because it is free and implemented in such a way that the end result is seamless access to previously blocked content."
So how does Immunity work to bring back Torrent sites like EZTV that you thought were down? Fairly simply. In fact, it seems all that is needed is a change in your browser settings. Here is how Immunicity creators described the process.
"All it needs is for the user to change one setting in their web browser, then when they next attempt to access a blocked site, it will be seamlessly routed via our proxy servers to get unblocked."
Here is a list of current torrent sites Immunicity can unblock, while new sites are being added daily.
The best part of all? Immunicity is free and easy to use. So for all those who feared that their free movie watching days were over or that downloading TV Torrents from EZTV would soon be a distant memory, are mistaken. There is a way to get around EZTV being down.
One thing users need to be aware of is that this activity is considered illegal, as is any form of piracy, and iDesignTimes does not condone the illegal viewing distributing or downloading of copyrighted material so proceed at your own risk.
