By popular demand, our second Awesome-HD invites giveaway is here - we are offering 100 more free invites to this private tracker (our Twitter followers should have had a heads-up on this). If you didn’t know already, Awesome-HD (AHD) is a gazelle based BitTorrent site that specializes in high definition movie and TV show releases. Founded by EuREKA (ex-HDBits.org encoder), AHD has quickly become one of the better places on the net to find and download scene and non-scene HD encodes. If you are looking for well seeded, high quality HD rips (including some internal encodes), this is a tracker you should definitely check out.
So what exactly can you find on Awesome-HD? It’s mainly movies, music and TV shows – all in High Definition formats (lossless when in comes to music). Releases indexed on this tracker usually meet the following standards:
- Movies - DXVA 2.0 compliant 720p/1080p x264 encodes + DTS/AC-3 + English subtitles in a Matroska container
- TV – Only Blu-Ray / HD DVD sources. Only complete seasons.
- HD-Audio - DTS-HD, TrueHD, LPCM, FLAC
As mentioned earlier there are both scene and non-scene releases indexed on AHD. In fact, majority of the uploaded torrents are encodes by p2p groups such as EuReKA, ESiR, CtrlHD, BTT, DON, iLL, etc. It’s worth mentioning that AHD generally provides excellent download speeds – torrents usually have plenty of seeds.
Although it’s only been about 6 months since the launch, AHD has managed to sign up close to 5000 active members and upload 550+ torrents. This feat was achieved amidst the chaos of several downtimes and of course migration from XBTIT to Gazelle codebase. Initially the site was open for signup but it soon became an invite only community, which brings us back to the invite giveaway.
AHD admins have been kind enough to give 100 free invites exclusively for FILEnetworks Blog readers. These will be served on a first come, first served basis. You are not required to provide ratio proofs or speedtests. Please do not abuse this opportunity – do not request invites if you have no intention of being active on the tracker.
To obtain an invite follow the steps below:
- Create a new email message with the subject ‘Awesome-HD’. In the body of the message clearly specify the E-mail address you want the invite sent to (write the email message in the format email@example.com – do not use the address[at]provider[dot]com notation as you did in previous giveaways.
- Send the email to firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE: Within 4 hours after posting this, we have received 140+ invite requests. The first 100 requests will be sent an invite. Please do not sent any more requests since this giveaway is now officially over.
