TV Links was a website that contained links to television programming and movies from around the world and movies submitted by users. No actual content was hosted on TV-Links, all content was hosted on external websites and the servers were physically located in the Netherlands. On 18th of October 2007, all hell broke loose when the site was raided, shut down and the owner was arrested by the police. Many people who used the site for their entertainment needs were left stranded.
As with the demise of any popular site, several more smaller sites popped up on the net to fill the gap left by TV-Links. Some of them succeeded and some of them soon went offline. Here is a list of popular TV-LINKs alternatives:
