Torrent sites are the source for every type of online content you can ask for and more importantly from pirated sites, you can get all of those for free. To make things clear from the first, using torrents is not illegal.
There are contents that are official and can be downloaded with the help of software like BitTorrent.
But to be honest, most of the content users download from torrent is pirated content and downloading or distributing those content are illegal.
Still, here is the list of the top 15 torrent sites accessible from where you can download movies, music, games, or software for free.

The user interface is not the best I have seen, but their extensive collection does make up for that. One can find TV series from different countries and various languages.
NOTE: The above list mostly mentions torrent sites, and torrent search engines are absent. You can find some of the good torrent search engines including Torrents.me, Torrents.io, Veoble, XTORX, Snowfl, Torrentz2, and many others from our list of best torrent search engines.
Though The Pirate Bay might become your number one choice as the best torrenting or torrent site for downloading your favorite stuff, it is possible that there is a unique file that you might not find on this torrent website since we stated before that, not all websites are perfect. Instead, try browsing other alternatives and see if your luck starts there.
Before hopping on any of these entertaining websites, again I would suggest you use a VPN connection for security and accessibility reasons and an ad-blocker will be the cherry on the top for the best browsing experience.
