|After KickassTorrents has been shut down and its alleged owner detained, another “pirating” service has vanished from the Internet: a popular streaming website Solarmovie became unavailable without explanation. Some believe that its shutdown is connected with KAT.
KickassTorrents shutdown was the most dramatic turn of events since the raid of The Pirate Bay 2 years ago. After having been the world’s largest torrent site for the past 18 months, KickassTorrents went offline following the arrest of its alleged founder, Artyom Vaulin, whose entire operation had been well and truly compromised by the US Department of Homeland Security.
When such major takedowns occur, it is common for other websites in the same niche to reconsider their positions: for example, once MegaUpload was raided in 2012, sites such as BTjunkie took the decision to shut down voluntarily. This time, most other torrent sites remain online, but at least one casualty did follow the recent KAT drama.
Solarmovie has been one of the most popular “pirate” streaming portals for a long time, with multiple domain issues – from .com to .ph. But mere hours after KAT seizure, Solarmovie completely disappeared from the Internet, without posting any official announcement. Perhaps, this is because the criminal complaint filed against KickassTorrents’ owner indicated his close connections to Solarmovie.
So far, the DHS obtained a copy of KickassTorrents’ servers from its Canadian host and gained access to KAT’s servers in Chicago. In Vaulin’s email communication, the investigators found that an IP address for a KAT server was previously used to host Solarmovie.com.

|Damn. Kat was good. Now I don't torrent heaps and my knowledge on other sites is such that I can only name 3 - TPB, KAT and ET. Seem to me ET will be the next to vanish.|
Serious sad face!

|Not Cool...Not cool at all|
|It was a sad day when KAT went down. As others have said, ET is a great place and a lot of KAT refugees including myself came over and are uploading and downloading.. ET rocks....|
|Yes LMT it was sad, but something had to change, the deletion was so out of hand.|
I nearly quit uploading behind it. And in truth deletion served no real purpose.
|The only thing I just would like to get answered is why? Why has the global war on torrentsites developed so extreme? At first I did get it. There where a lot of uploaders that sold torrents like books, music. And like the most of us whe dont want to make profit but just love to share for free. otherwise I dont get the hole war because they will never stop sharing torrents. They can take out a site but while one gets down about 10 more go up. I just dont get it. Its not like the blockbusters and artist really get harmed. The most really good torrents are only really downloaded after they are out on dvd or bleuray. And everybody knows thats not the big profit but just peanuts. Look I get is when governments hunt down uploaders who sell torrents but come on this is going to far. This which-hunt should end. Its so much better to keep torrents on the web visible that way everybody gets to see what is going on. The only thing that this war will do is torrentsites lock down so you can only acces if you are a member. And that would be so bad. We all know that if that gets through the most terrible things are going to be shared. I love extratorrent because it has good rules. Uploaders who try to upload terrible shit are kicked off and blocked. I know I can write it all down here and nothing will be done with it. But damn I just dont get it|

|I just noticed Bitsnoop has gone : /|
|What other good sites are available and what happened to Silver torrent??|
|I'm so disappointed and in disbelief that KAT has gone so suddenly. I just thought it was a few minute thing with the page down. Never realized how much I have enjoyed seeing what was available to make my life happier and gotten so addicted to visiting there. I hope that the person arrested isn't made an example of and that He/She will have the best legal advice. Such a Bummer! Glad I like visiting ExtraTorrent but here and KAT were the only two places I trusted so I hope this site doesn't disappear as suddenly too. Makes you really appreciate even more so the people who put so much time into sharing shows and movies. Don't get to say goodbye or thanks even.|
|ffs 1 door closes another opens get over it.|
|sad sad sad sad day,but I found a new home and that is here|

To all ye of little faith - it was sudden and unexpected alright but KAT will be back on sooner or later...
|Don't you KAT users come here doing your illegal shit.|
Extra torrent is strictly Legit. No Funny Business here.
Long live Extratorrent.
I think its called Withdrawal Symptoms. Torrents are a Drug.
Enjoy ET All.
|When the day will come that they will shutdown all torrent sites|
Is very sad
But do you know that we as people have more power then they have i mean the fbi's
If they shutdown all torrent site
We as people simply have to spread the word to everybody in this world
Not to buy any movie or music
And if people are going to do that
Then you will see that the movie and music industry will collapse
Then the movie and music industry will be sorry for shutdown torrent sites
I really wanna see the music and movie industry fall down
So they have to find one day a real job you know as we all do working hard for or money
And not like them standing all day in the spotlights and camra's and eating lobsters

|Yes it is sad about Kat I hope they do get back up and running again but ET will always be better in my opinion the best thing about Kat was it told you the time line on how long ago a torrent was up loaded other than that ET has and always will be better|
