TV Website, tv-links.co.uk raided

The arrest and the closure of the site - www.tv-links.co.uk - came during an operation by officers from Gloucestershire County Council trading standards in conjunction with investigators from Fact and Gloucestershire Police.

Fact claims that tv-links.co.uk was providing links to illegal film content that had been camcorder recorded from cinemas and then uploaded to the internet. The site also provided links to TV shows that were being illegally distributed.

Ugh! Why do they have to raid it before Heroes Season 2 episode 5, Fight or Flight? Couldn't they have raided it after that show? Well, not as if I use the link. I just heard about it.. nyuk nyuk/

Well, here in the Philippines, it seems they're rushing to put out the second season of Heroes out on air lest they lose viewership by putting it off any longer.

Anyway, I did like tv-links.co.uk. Too bad it's permanently down now. It was a virtual TV/Movie heaven for junkies like me. Specially for us in the Philippines where stuff like Penn and Teller Bullshit, Doctor Who, The IT Crowd aren't even aired.
