Downloading movies and TV series using torrents is a practice that for many years has been very popular in the internet world. Unlike the classic server download, getting a file using this decentralized protocol has a number of advantages.
The first is the availability of the file: there is no longer a single access point (also known as a point of failure), but the file is distributed over multiple devices, ensuring availability even in case of deletions by the file author.
The second big advantage, in my opinion, is the download speed. Instead of downloading the whole file from a single point, you download several portions from multiple users. In this way, if one of the sources is no longer available or has a drop in upload speed, the effects are minimal since, almost certainly, most other sources will continue to run smoothly.
The great success of torrents is undoubtedly the ease with which you can download millions of contents, many of which are protected by copyright. You can find many books, movies, TV series, manga, video games, PC / MAC programs and porn movies downloadable via torrents with just a few clicks.
In this article we talk about:
Downloading files using the torrent protocol is legal?
Despite the confusion that reigns in the environment, downloading files via torrent is not DI PER SE ‘legal. The distinction between legal and illegal makes it the presence and type of copyright related to certain content.
For this reason, we at TecHLecToR assume no consequences for the irresponsible use of the information contained in this article. We only refer to those who want to obtain files that, according to what is claimed by the rights holders, can be obtained through a free torrent protocol. The infringement of copyright is a crime in many countries, and we do not take responsibility for your actions.
Below you will find what are, in our opinion, the best torrent sites of 2019 from which you can download thousands of files in complete security. If for any reason you can not access one of the sites listed below try to follow our guide on how to change DNS.
The first site on the list can only be Torrentz2. It is the best search engine for torrent files available in 2019 and maintains the ease of use of the famous predecessor.
Thanks to the closure of some rival sites, 1337x have been the most visited torrent site in the world for the last two years!
In addition to taking advantage of the misfortunes of others, this site has managed to convince more and more users thanks to a nice user interface, millions of indexed torrent files and the convenient division by categories. It is, in fact, possible to find and download operating systems, software, books, movies, TV series and hot content.
Update 30 January 2019: The main domain is inaccessible from some parts of the world. The aim has been changed: now it is possible to access the SE domain of 1337x. If this is no longer accessible, try one of the following alternative domains:
The Pirate Bay
The website with the most known illegal content in the world. Volente or nolente The Pirate Bay is one of the pillars of the web, although the various legal disputes and closures have undermined its supremacy of the most used torrent site in the world.
In 2019 the portal is still full of content and within seconds you will find the desired content unless you search for particularly rare and niche files.
If in the past he was the one who inherited the scepter of Pirate Bay, KickAss Torrents has not completely recovered from the stop he had last year because of the US authorities.
It is more than reasonable to understand how a user hardly visits a site previously closed by the authorities, with illegal content and that potentially causes millions of dollars of lost revenue every day.
The torrent search engine homepage is much cleaner than in the past, although the search results pages maintain the style of the first version of KAT.
The most important torrent site in Italy is definitely TNT Village.
TNT Village, with its forum, is not simply a container of torrent files to download. TNT is an all-Italian community among the largest in Italy and is entirely dedicated to sharing material through peer-to-peer.
The spirit of the site is based on the sharing and contribution of each user. Thanks to the strong community and the many active releasers it is possible to find thousands of people, every day, making torrents of PC programs, films, books, documentaries, comics and many other types of content available.
The large group of active users has made possible the birth of another of the distinctive features of TNT Village. In fact, I refer to Projects, that is to say, collections of files that share the same theme in common.
Some examples? University books on physics or mathematics, historical documentaries, films about a particular actor or director. There are so many and I highly recommend that you look at those in the categories of interest to you: you could find real hidden gems!
The green corsair
The green corsair is a new torrent community born in 2018. This forum was born from the detachment of some users from other famous Italians and is imposing, just a few months after its birth, among the best torrent sites of 2019.
Thanks to a good user community and to the presence of excellent real-life, it is possible to find every type of torrent file: it goes from books to programs and even to the latest high-definition movies. Thanks to the large number of users it is also possible to quickly download large files.
Alternative torrent sites to keep an eye on in 2019
