Another popular pirate android application has come to its demise as Terrarium TV’s developer has announced that the service will soon be out of the game. Terrarium TV has been a highly popular and one of the most preferred online streaming and piracy application around the world.
NitroXenon; Terrarium TV’s developer announced the shutting down of Terrarium TV by publishing this message:
Terrarium TV gained popularity because of the variety of content it had in its library and the amazing user interface, which will surely be missed by the users. Terrarium TV provided streaming links for movies and TV shows by scrapping different providers and hosting sites without their permission.
This is not a shocking thing to hear as far as I see it, because the anti-piracy authorities have started tightening their grip and this has pressurized all the online streaming sites involved in piracy.
Many torrents have been taken down in recent times and now they are going against applications and devices as well. Recently, the sale of loaded Kodi boxes was banned because they had add-ons that provided pirated streaming links.
Terrarium TV was also facing a lot of heat from anti-piracy advocates and bloggers just like Kodi. Therefore, I believe that this decision take by NitroXenon is a result of the pressure he had been facing for quite some time.
Another possible reason might be his absence from the industry and inconsistency. He used to update the application after every few months but then his consistency broke and he started being absent from the scene. The most recent update available was in May and he has also been away from the social media on and off.
Nevertheless, the legal aspect in this regard might be the major reason for this shut down. Many mirror apps emerged recently, claiming that they are the new Terrarium TV sites, which were, obviously swindles. Now that the news of Terrarium TV shut down has emerged, many mirror applications and websites will start popping up, claiming that they are the new domains of Terrarium TV to take advantage of this situation.
Online streaming lovers and Terrarium TV users will definitely be heartbroken by this news because it was indeed the most reliable online streaming application for Android, which provided free content.
Nevertheless, the users can always opt for better alternatives like:
Terrarium TV might have been under scrutiny from the authorities like MPAA or ACE, but whatever the truth is, Terrarium TV ha shutdown in 2018.
