TVMuse.cc says original TVMuse was hacked, reveals backup domains

It was sometime in the beginning of January, when we started seeing reports from TVMuse users that the service is down. As the official website TVMuse.com went down, users started looking for alternatives that offer similar functionality – high quality streaming links for latest TV Shows almost immediately after they air.

But then arrived a linker from the original website, who started sharing links on one of their own web pages.

Shortly after that, it came to our notice that a site called TVMuse.cc has been launched. The banner at the homepage of this new site said the following:

Unfortunately we lost our domain tvmuse.com, we are working on recovering our database, in a few days we will have the website ready. Please bookmark our new site (Ctrl-D). Thank you!

The reason behind the loss of domain, however, wasn’t revealed then. But things have changed now.

If you take a look at TVMuse home page at the moment, it says the original TVMuse domain (tvmuse.com) was hacked. In addition, the team behind TVMuse.cc has also revealed two backup domains.

Our old domain tvmuse.com was hacked, thats why we created 2 more sites where you can watch your favorite series | QUICKEPISODES.CO | KIZISERIES.CO

You can visit both these domains as both are up and live at the moment. There were some issues accessing these sites recently, but those have been fixed.

The TVMuse.cc controversy

It’s worth mentioning that there’s no confirmation that TVMuse.cc is being run by the same team that was behind TVMUse.com. There’s also no information to confirm Pop Alexandru was a linker at the original website.

Adding to the confusion, Pop Alexandru never agreed TVMuse.cc is officially the new TVMuse home.

Interestingly, someone who also claim they were linker at the original TVMuse website came out in support for TVMuse.cc, accusing Pop Alexandru of promoting their own blog. Here’s their response to Alexandru’s tweet:

So you can see, there are still a lot of grey areas, but the fact remains that TVMuse.cc – which recently offered update on upcoming features – is working fine after the demise of TVMuse.com, and now they have added new backup domains just in case the main website gets hacked or something else happens.
