Shutting down ExtraTorrent does not prevent distribution networks

Ettv and EtHd continue despite the fact that ExtraTorrent closes permanently

ExtraTorrent

This week, the torrent community received a big blow when a decade of torrent - ExtraTorrent - was permanently closed. The move was made without any obvious reason that SaT Manager of ExtraTorrent simply stated that "it's time to say goodbye." However, the good thing about this story is that the community managed to overcome this sudden incident and move on.

The Great Migration

A few days after news release, things have started to work out, with ExtraTorrent users moving to other websites, with The Pirate Bay, Torrentz2 and RARBG to report a significant increase in their users. What has also been reaffirmed - certainly defeating the fears of many users - is that many distinguished uploaders and sender groups did not close with the site.

Last Thursday, just after the site was closed, the ExtraTorrent SaM administrator said the ETRG movie torrent distribution team would also close forever. At the same time, however, it was mentioned that this may not be the case for every person who is downloading.

And really, these teams have raised crowds torrents in other torrent areas, to great satisfaction of the masses, thus keeping the spirit of ET alive. A number of torrents have been detected in The Pirate Bay, which marks a move of uploaders along with users. Another popular DDR uploader has also been confirmed to continue to upload torrents.

The Torrent Heritage

ExtraTorrent's legacy will continue to live in the form of ExtraImage - an image hosting site that was the chosen hosting service for many. A sad news, however, accompanies positivity. ET's internal FUM encoder, known for high-quality TV shows, will also stop working.

The full impact of the emergency shutdown will occur in the coming days. While a large community has closed this week, with a lot of uploaders losing their base, this incident - like many similar before that, proves the resilience of the torrent community.
