Last week, we brought you the news that Village Roadshow was seeking to add 40 more sites to Australia’s anti-piracy block list. ISPs will now need to ban customers from accessing popular torrent and movie streaming sites that include ExtraTorrent, Demonoid, Torrent Downloads, TorrentProject, YTS, 123Movies, and Icefilms. Here is the full list of banned websites (and how to bypass the blocks).

Following the successful blocking (on paper at least) of The Pirate Bay, Torrentz, TorrentHound, IsoHunt and SolarMovies, Village Roadshow is stepping up its attack on copyright infringers. The latest hit list submitted to the courts contains dozens of domains belonging to some of the most popular torrent, streaming, and direct download sites on the internet.

Village Roadshow’s application to the courts is essentially a repeat of the previous one, but with new domain names. Once again, the movie company is requesting ISPs including Telstra, Optus, Vocus, TPG and their subsidiaries to implement the blocks.

Here’s the full list of blocked sites as reported by TorrentFreak:

  • 123Movies
  • Alluc
  • Bitsnoop
  • Couchtuner
  • Demonoid
  • EYNY
  • EZTV
  • FMovies
  • GenVideos
  • Hdmovieswatch
  • Icefilms
  • Kinogo
  • KissCartoon
  • Limetorrents
  • MegaShare
  • Movie4k
  • Phimmoi
  • PrimeWire
  • Rarbg
  • RIsbb
  • Shush
  • Softarchive
  • Spacemov
  • Tehparadox
  • Torrent Downloads
  • TorrentProject
  • Viooz
  • WatchFree
  • WatchSeries
  • Xemphimso
  • Yify Torrent
  • YTS

As we’ve mentioned in the past, torrenting itself is completely legal and it’s not all that difficult to circumvent ISP blocking of torrent websites. Click here to find out how to circumvent the blocks.

    • Yep, I do hope the DNS server I use blocks them. I’d hate to stumble across any of this handy list of sites accidentally.

  • there are some major ones still missing from that list, google play, apple iTunes, amazon, Netflix, plus all the other streaming service that are still cheaper alternatives from them.

    when will they get it through their thick skulls, they are to expensive, and until they make it cheaper people are going to keep going elsewhere to watch.

  • Hands up anyone who has even accessed any of these sights, let alone done so with their own IP Address? Which btw I plan on doing today, just to see what’s available. Thank you Village Roadshow 🙂

  • Aaaand they’ve missed quite a few big names, like s***********

    (Censored to prevent people from searching for it. Yes, that’s the wrong number of characters to prevent people from wildcarding it.)

  • Maybe if Burke kept to his word and didn’t pull this delay nonsense he wouldn’t have to worry about piracy.

    Oh wait; the problem with common sense is its not so common now.

  • this from the company holding back the batman lego movie who said last time we learnt our lesson and we wont do it again. Stop treating Australia like crap with release date

  • How can they block sites like Alluc — which is a stream search engine and doesn’t host anything?

    And why do sites like YouTube get a free pass? There’s thousands of documentaries on there which are illegally uploaded, not to mention, most songs are too (if it’s not uploaded by the band, their label, etc, it’s more than likely an unauthorised upload.)

    • Because the lawmakers and courts have no idea how technology works. Same argument can be made against most torrent sites, there’s no copyrighted material hosted or available on them… They haven’t tried to block twitter either, from bots reposting magnet links for popular torrents…
