    Good afternoon!
    Dear participants, a wonderful project, please tell me where you can now watch the latest 2017 movies and TV series in high quality, namely the latest series of new seasons?
    And recently there has been a tendency of infringement of the rights of ordinary users in RuNet, and throughout the Internet too. The site has just appeared normal, you start to get used to it, watch your favorite movies and TV shows online there (some could download the torrent immediately), and then BAM doesn't have a website, or it changed its name, or it was completely excluded from the Internet, it is not clear. And we remain in the eternal search, "where you can watch online movies and TV shows in good quality."
    It is clear that there are a lot of pirate websites, but there are very few really good online cinemas, as a rule, those who upload movies (new 2017) and TV shows in good quality.
