Top 5 TVShack Alternatives

Top 5 TVShack Alternatives

TVShack remains to be one of the most sought after website for streaming TV that is seemingly not making a return. The website continues to generate interest to this day and some even have started up clone sites to replace the site. Regardless, it doesn’t look like the site survived to see the light of 2011, so we have compiled a list of alternatives to the famous streaming site.

TVShack.net, the original TVShack, had its domain seized back in July last year. Then, in what appeared to be an act of defiance, the website was back up under a different domain name a week later, namely TVShack.cc. Then, in November, the websites domain was seized again. Many were expecting the site to make a return like the last time, but as time went on, it gradually came clear that the only thing that would return is the numerous clone sites that have since popped up.

We here at ZeroPaid have received numerous e-mails asking whether or not the site would make a return:

Hi !

i was googleing around to shed some light on the recent closing of TV SHACK”CC . i read a previous article on the transition of domains from .net to .cc that you had written. i would be interested if you could shed some light on the matter, like you previously did.

thank you

Dear drew! im a big fan of tvshack and wish you a speedy recovery! please if you could keep me posted on any new domains it would be greatly appreciated!

hey there drew…i am very glad that you kept all of the fans and users of tvshack updated by informing the transformation of tvshack.net to tvshack.cc
but…now again it is taken over by the government people.can you please help the users once again….??
thanking you,

Well, we’ve looked and waited, but it looks like the last raid might have ultimately finished off the original site. There’s been many clone sites that have started up to take its place, but the original seems, at least at this point, gone for good. This doesn’t mean that there are alternatives out there though and we are happy to share our top 5 alternatives to TVShack:

1. BlinkX

From their ‘About’ page:

blinkx is the world’s largest and most advanced video search engine.

Now, with an index of over 35 million hours of searchable video and more than 720 media partnerships, including national broadcasters, commercial media giants, and private video libraries, it has cemented its position as the premier destination for online TV.

My favourite site is moviewatch.in. It redirects you to a site that is amazing. The best streams are from sockshare. I give it a 10/10! Easy to use! You can create a "to watch" list and a "favorites" list. It's great!

cuevana.tv is by far the best one. I can't believe nobody names it

TvShack.bz hasn't been working today in Canada (Aug. 9, 2011). Thing is sites like Down For Everyone Or Just Me say it's working fine; that's incorrect. So I don't know what's going on, but it ain't working and it comes just a day after IceFilms was forced to leave GoDaddy.com because RIAA/Government threatened.

Fastpasstv is a good alternative and the ones listed by drew - BlinkX and TVDuck - TVShack at the bz extension is still a good site and works. I always download Ad Blocker Plus on all my MAC computers so that I don't have to be subjected to pop-up ads or malware stuff in the background. That's the way to go!! Also I use Real Player Downloader and capture FLV copies of all my fav shows while I'm out and about - opening about 3 to 5 windows at a time and putting them each on pause giving them time to buffer and watching them later with VLC player. Awesome!!! Cheers

Wow, how's MAFIAA gonna fight this? It's like 1 goes down, 1 person writes 5 alternatives, a bunch more pop into tge comments. MAFIAA is probably just planning to make money off an unwinnable war, seems to be the US' only production these days: unwinnable wars and overprocessed "food". Well, as long as the top 1% make more this year it was worth it :)

I'd rather not list them given that some of them have been known to try and get you to install who knows what. Other's are a small collection of older links elsewhere and are filled with ads. I've seen one that asks you for your e-mail addresses that supposedly will allow you to get a link to a secret version of TVShack, but I wouldn't even consider submitting an e-mail address because it's probably run by spammers hoping to amass a collection of e-mail addresses for the purpose of either spamming or sending worm viruses for all we know. So, rather than run the risk of posting links that lead to potentially malware sites, it's probably best to stick to an alternatives list instead.
