EZTV – Uptime Status, Mirrors and Alternatives

Did you try to access EZTV and found it blocked? And are you searching for a way to unblock it? If so, you should know that there are a lot of options available to access this top torrenting site, especially if it is blocked in your country.

There are plenty of EZTV mirror websites and proxies for users who want to access it from a restrictive country. What’s more? They are all free. The proxy websites we’ll list below contain all the files that you will find in the original domain. They have the same index and get the same updates. So the only difference between the two is that proxy websites have a different address than the original website.

EZTV is known for gigantic collection of TV shows.

In this guide, we’ll share some of the most reliable and safe mirror websites and proxy services. Along with that, we’ll walk you through the ways to remain safe and secure while using these sites. We’ll also list some alternatives you can try out if EZTV isn’t for you.

Read on to find out more.

What Is EZTV?

Reportedly, the administrators behind the torrent site faced a hostile takeover and had to go through a lot of trouble to get the website’s domain from the previous owners back in 2015.

Nevertheless, that did not stop EZTV from becoming one of the top TV torrent sites in the world. If there is a good TV show out there that you want to watch, then you can bet it will be available on the site.

The official homepage has a reasonable design in the sense that it is good enough to enable users to easily see the TV show list along with a countdown tab and a calendar. It also allows visitors to sort their torrent search results in different video qualities such as 480p and 720p. There are also daily shows and WebRips if that is your thing.

How to Access EZTV

Before we get to the steps, you should know a thing or two about the reasons why you may not be able to access EZTV in your country. Assuming that the main site is working internationally, but you are unable to access it in your country, this means either your internet service provider or your network or even one of your government agencies may have blocked the site in your area.

At the time of writing this guide, law enforcement agencies had blocked access to EZTV in several countries including Australia, Ireland, the U.K., the U.S. and Canada. Now, if you find that your ISP has also blocked the site in your country, then the simplest way to get everything back in order is by using the Tor browser or a VPN. Most of the time, this should allow you to access the site.

In that doesn’t work, you may need a couple of tools to make sure you can access EZTV in any country and at any given time. We’ll get to those tools in an upcoming section, so keep reading.

For now, let’s consider a case in which the official website is permanently down. In cases such as these, people have figured out a way to access their favorite sites even if the main URL is offline or has shut down for some reason.

You’ll need to use an EZTV proxy portal and/or mirror website to access the site if it’s not working. Proxy sites allow users to download movies and TV shows without going through the hassle of installing anything on their system or web browser.

Here is a list of working EZTV proxy sites which have been tested not just for status but also speed and availability. Before moving forward, keep in mind that using proxies or mirrors takes a bit of experience to fully understand how these services work. A proxy website or mirror website may work for us one day and not work for you the other. Similarly, it may be fast today but slow tomorrow. Keep that in mind as you go through the list below.

If you want to let us know you could not access any of our below-mentioned proxies and mirrors, then please share your thoughts in the comments section at the bottom of this article.

With that out of the way, let’s take a look at the list:

Malware can infect any device. People who use torrent websites have higher chance of getting infected.

Now, even though the proxy sites and URLs we’ve mentioned above allow users to access the original website indirectly to download files, keep in mind that these URLs are not completely safe.

Whenever you do something on the internet, you have to take some type of risk, no matter how significant.

Even if you access sites like EZTV via proxies and/or mirror sites, your internet service provider can still see your torrent usage and track your activities. Then, internet service providers have the opportunity to join hands with law enforcement agencies to penalize you for downloading any kind of pirated content.

We suggest you make use of a good VPN service. Once you install the VPN, you get access to the tools you need to hide your online traffic and stay undetected.

The top three VPN services recommended for torrenting are:

  1. NordVPN
  2. IPVanish
  3. Ivacy

Now, the market is filled with lots of VPN services that claim to unblock each and every website for their customers—and they may be telling the truth. But the point is simple enough already: There is not a single VPN service provider that is the best VPN service provider for all online consumers. Just like each consumer is a bit different from the last consumer, each VPN service is a bit different from the other one.

Ultimately, you should sign up for the VPN service that caters to your needs the best rather than just going with the top result on Google.

To help make things easier, we’ve produced a complete guide to VPNs for torrenting. This can help you make an informed decision about which VPN service you should sign up for.

Now, a bit about the benefits of using a VPN service for accessing EZTV.

The first thing you should know is that VPN services can help you unblock all sorts of torrent and streaming websites, not just EZTV. VPN services can help you unblock sites like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube (if it is blocked in your country) and other torrenting websites like The Pirate Bay and 1337x.

Secondly, VPN services not only unblock websites—they also boost your privacy by hiding your IP address. VPN services work by giving you a new IP that belongs to the country of the VPN server that you have connected to. If you connect to a United States-based VPN server, you get a U.S. IP address. Using this new IP, you can browse the internet as if you were living in America.

Thirdly, VPN services not only hide your traffic by routing it through their secure tunnel but they also encrypt your data. That adds an extra layer of security around all of your online activities in case your data is leaked.

Unblock EZTV with a VPN Service

Here are the steps you need to take in order to access EZTV:

  1. The first step, as always, is to sign up for a good VPN service provider. (We covered this briefly above.)
  2. Download and install the VPN app for your computer and connect to a server located in a country where EZTV is not banned.
  3. Once connected, you can go to EZTV’s site or go to mirrors/proxies to get started on downloading movies, games, TV shows, documentaries and audio content.
  4. The next step is to click on any of your favorite TV shows or movies from the homepage. You can also perform a search via the search box on the home screen.
  5. Once you have selected a TV show or movie, you should download the torrent file for it. That can be done by simply clicking on the show.
  6. Once you do, the site should take you to the dedicated page for the torrent. From there, either download the magnet link or the torrent file itself.
  7. Then open the downloaded torrent file with the help of a torrent client. There are many good torrent clients on the market today, but Tixati and uTorrent are tied for the best. EZTV’s download page also allows you to download TV shows directly for some files, so keep an eye out for that if you don’t want to use a torrent client for downloading torrent files.

Best EZTV Alternatives [2019]

What if you don’t want to use a VPN to unblock/access EZTV and don’t want to use proxies or mirrors?

Then you have no other choice but to say goodbye to EZTV and try out one of the alternatives below:

Kickass Torrents

One of the oldest and the best torrent sites is just sitting there waiting for you to switch from EZTV to it, since 2008. So if you can’t access the site, then Kickass Torrents (or KAT) is your next best option.

KAT has a huge torrent database, with over 5 million active/working files. The site also has a massive community of avid users. People often leave comments on the site’s listings that will tell you a lot more about the file than the file description itself.

LimeTorrents

This is another decent option that you should check out as an EZTV alternative. The LimeTorrents database has a wide range of content to choose from, with millions of active torrent files.

Some reports say that LimeTorrents adds more than 100 new files every day. Most of the content on the site falls under categories such as anime, web series, movies, TV shows, comics, games and software.

The homepage is clean and looks modern enough compared to some of the other torrent websites.

RARBG

RARBG has been providing the torrenting community with good torrents for over 11 years now. Sometimes the number of visitors goes so high that RARBG has to shut down its website for maintenance.

This torrent website does a fantastic job of sorting torrent files, which makes it easy for users to download torrents and start using them.

Do make sure you are using a VPN service while visiting RARBG or any other torrent website though. You never know who is watching what, when.
