    British private BitTorrent site thebox.bz has decided to close its doors.

    The site specialised in television shows from the United Kingdom and advises it will disappear as of September first, with the following message to members posted to numerous torrenting fora:

    It is with great sadness that we must announce the closure of TheBox.bz, effective on September 1st. This decision has not been an easy one but, given the increasingly hostile climate towards torrent sites as of late, we feel it's a necessary move.

    On September 1st, the torrent section of the website will be deactivated.

    As TheBox has always been as much about community as about sharing, forums and private messages will remain functional for a while longer.

    Afterward, we will securely wipe all account details before retiring the server for good.

    Discussion and farewells are welcome

    Thank you for being a part of TheBox. It's been a fun ride.

    Well, then. Download and reupload. Save it for future generations?
