KickassTorrents has come up with its personal release group named KATRG. The team has already added several movies during the recent days and there are more to come. Brooklyn, Room and The Peanuts Movie are a few to name. Fans as well as the authorities are already paying attention to the fresh launch.
During the last decade very different versions of release groups have been launched. There can be large groups run by the top players in bittorrent world and also so called lonely wolves doing it alone. There aren’t actual limits or requirements to create such a group.
Some run a release group to gather fame, others use it to promote their torrent sites. The goals can really vary from side to side and these groups are also created for both public and private torrent trackers.
Many popular torrent sites have had their very own release group and now KickassTorrents has joined them. The team behind KAT is sure they can serve their visitors even better with the fresh release group connected to the site’s brand. There is an experienced encoder behind it whose identity will remain private.
Copyright holders have already made the group take down a lot of releases but KAT is working on a solution to provide even those files that have been taken down from the website. There is an active forum thread, which supports the activity and lists all the releases from KATRG.
At the moment the release group of KickassTorrents is not that popular yet, but the name KATRG is being promoted on other websites, so the popularity is expected to increase very soon.
Update: The release group was not an official one of KAT and it has been removed from the site.
