EZTV, the go-to place for many torrenting TV fans, has suffered its fair share of troubles in recent months.
The torrent distribution group meanwhile continued to operate from the new EZTV.ch domain name, but during the past few hours this new home went through some changes as well.
Instead of hosting official EZTV torrents the .CH domain now links to the same content as the ‘unofficial’ EZTV.it site. While there are plenty of TV-torrents available, these are sourced externally from RARBG.
And there are more signs pointing to a takeover. Users are not able to login for example, and the scam warning that was previously listed on the .ch domain in gone as well. In addition the site now serves various ads including popunders.
Upon close inspection it appears that the domain name was taken over at the registrar level. The WHOIS information was updated and now lists the UK-based “EZCLOUD LIMITED” as owner, which is the same company that registered the .it domain.
TF reached out to ETZV’s Novaking to find out more about the apparent takeover, but we have yet to receive a reply. EZCLOUD director Hernandez Dominguez Emmanuel hasn’t responded to our inquiries either.
