There has been some good news on the HD Trackers front in the past few days. Earlier today HD-Bits.Ro opened signups (now closed) and now we feature another specialized HD torrent tracker that is open for public registrations. HDChina is a BitTorrent tracker of Chinese origin which has a lot of English, Chinese, Taiwanese, Hong Kong, Japanese and Korean HD content including movies, TV shows, documentaries and music videos. HDChina is an underrated HD tracker- people seem to get turned off by the Chinese interface but there is actually a lot of English releases available on this site.
Something that most people don’t know is that there is an option to change the language at HDChina. Once logged in, just click on the English flag icon on the top left corner of the page to set interface language to English (there are 3 more language options – Chinese, Japanese and Korean). Also note that this site labels almost all torrents including English only releases using both Chinese and English wording. Just because a torrent has a Chinese name does not mean it’s a Chinese localized release.
Language woes aside, HDChine is in fact a decent HD tracker. It has a 25000+ strong user base and tracks over 10500 torrents. Torrents found here includes US, UK TV shows/movies as well as Asian content (see categories below for more). Asian releases can usually be identified by the following tags on torrent title: CN – Chinese, HK – Honk Kong, TW – Taiwanese, JP – Japanese, KR – Korean. Both scene and non scene p2p releases can be found on this tracker.
There are some great packs online on HDChina. Some of these are pretty huge. Largest I found was a massive 436GB pack which included 68 Blu-Ray movies released by group ESiR. Some packs however seem to be taken (stolen?) from other torrent sites such as TheBox and HD-Bits.Ro.
Signups for HDChina are usually closed and when they do open it’s usually for a short period of time. This time however signups will stay open till the 29th of April:
Free signups will be open from 2009-04-24 12:00pm to 2009-04-29 12:00pm (Beijing time). Please inform your friends about this. Duplicated accounts will be banned! So, please tell your friends to register for just one account.
If you are looking for a place to download HD content at good speeds, this site is worth checking out – get in while you can.
