    One of the world's most-used pirate film websites TV-Links has been closed after providing links to illegal versions of major Hollywood hits and TV shows. The first closure of a major UK-based pirate site was also accompanied by raids and an arrest, the anti-piracy group Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) said today. A 26-year-old man from Cheltenham was arrested on Thursday in connection with offences relating to the facilitation of copyright infringement on the internet, FACT said. Read the full story on Jack Schofield's blog.

    maybe in the future but i cant see it happening within the next couple of years mainly because the genius behind the site, is currently behind bars!

    Yea, it's shut down.. there's plenty of alternatives tho. www.sidereel.com is pretty good and uses a lot of the same videos that tv-links used to.

    FACT: I am now forced to download family guy instead of watch it on TV-Links. Notice the opposite effect here.
