YIFY Torrents is a BitTorrent index website for movies.

UK blocking

A case requesting a block by UK ISPs for YIFY Torrents was reported in June 2013[1][2] It was reported to have been granted, along with a block on EZTV in July 2013[3]. As of 14th August 2013 no blocking order was confirmed to have been granted and the site is apparently still accessible.

The site was ordered blocked in either October or November, and blocks appeared on the ISPs around November 21 2013[4].
