Good news, the new website Kickass Torrents is back live. Back in July 2017, the United States authorities shut down the famous BitTorrent platform Kickass Torrents (KAT cr) after the arrest of its creator Artem Vaulin. After The Pirate Bay went offline the peer-to-peer file-sharing site became the world's largest piracy hub.
Now, shortly after the law enforcement shut down the original KAT domain, a group of devoted web staffers launched the Katcr.co website in hopes of getting the KickassTorrent download sites back to their former glory, early.
A new torrent website has now been launched by Katcr. co team and looks similar to the original Kickass app. It hosts a large range of torrent files and magnet connections for torrent videos, tv shows, apps, games, and torrent songs.
With some of its initial employees and devoted uploaders, the new Kickass Torrent site (https:/katcr. to/) is back live.
"We have all our big uploaders on board, and they continued to post relentlessly even before the launch of the torrent engines. The torrent group will now expect to see uploads from all the names they love and trust."
Elsewhere, Australian ISPs, including Pirate Bay and Isohunt, reportedly blocked access to 5 major torrent download websites.
Since the closure earlier this year of the original KickassTorrent forum, several mirror pages have sprung up online, pretending to be the actual reincarnation.
Yet all of these Kisass proxies and mirrors at KickassTorrent have malicious copycats. These sites are trying to access personal information and passwords from people with credit cards.
The team behind the new KickassTorrent promises on its web site that the pirates are safe and stable.
"We wanted to restore and maintain only secure components and keep our participants healthy. Given the fact that a restoration took longer, our community's well being comes first," one of the team leaders told TorrentFreak.
The members of the KAT cr team also claim the original Kickass Torrents website operators can walk free of charge.

Along with KAT cr, internet users have discovered some of the best alternatives to KickAssTorrent.
While we do not advocate any breach of copyright, here are some of the better solutions that people post on social media:
The PirateBay is among the best replacements to the KickAss Torrents. Yet other ISPs have banned it and its twin domains for copyright violations.
However, consumers often need the best-secure VPN service or a proxy to circumvent limitations on service providers to access the website.
The PirateBay is one of the popular search engines used worldwide for torrent. TPB includes pirated content in the form of apps, video, and music magnet connections.
The peer to peer file sharing site has long been around making it a reliable and prominent site. Like KickAssTorrent, 1337x provides a basic search bar with no complicated interface.
Torrent files and magnet connections can also be indexed by type. Or you can head the most leading torrents on the website to its Top 100 list.
TorLock is one of the best torrenting sites allowing users to download torrent files and magnet links of high quality.
Torlock is a popular website selling music, games , apps, the new TV shows and free videos.
Torlock is committed to listing only 100 per cent checked torrents with "No Fakes Torrent Page" as the official slogan. The platform also invites users to locate bogus torrents and get a $1 offset for any discovery.
Often known as the YTS torrent server, this tool is yet another great alternative to KickAss Torrents. I 'm sure all the film lovers are aware of YTS films. But for streaming YIFY videos this isn't the original YIFY torrent website.
The initial platform went dark after their chief in New Zealand Jurisprudence pleaded guilty. YTS.am is a perfect alternative to the original website. But you need to look out for other bogus torrent pages that advertise themselves as YTS.
Of others, ExtraTorrent is also an impressive alternative to KickAssTorrent. ExtraTorrent has once been the most popular torrent sites and the best. But on May 17, 2017, the site disappeared, with a shutdown message on its web site. Now ExtraTorrent is making a comeback with a new domain.
Because the government keeps a close eye on the BitTorrent protocol, users prefer Kickass proxy sites to hide IP address and KickAss access in front of their torrent clients.
But you should remember that there is no legal way to stream movies which are already in theaters for free.
You should seek legal means of viewing high-quality films online. Here's a separate article we've listed top free movie streaming sites that provides a pretty decent set of videos and even learning how to access files and apps using uTorrent.
