New TV season has arrived and this is a busy time for scene and p2p groups who upload their releases to scene topsites & BitTorrent networks. Brand new episodes of hit shows such as How I Met Your Mother, Stargate Universe, Two & A Half Men, Smallville, Family Guy, Heroes, House, Dexter, etc have begun airing and these episodes often become available on BitTorrent networks across the world, often just a few hours after original air date. Since there are many TV torrents being uploaded, it’s easy to miss the latest episode of your favorite TV show. Well here are three online services that’ll ensure this doesn’t happen.
One of the easiest ways to stay up do date on new TV episode releases (or any other releases for that matter) is by subscribing to an RSS feed on a BitTorrent tracker. However most BitTorrent tracker sites do not offer separate RSS feeds for each TV show. A single feed that contains updates of all TV episode releases is what you usually get – not very helpful. However, did you know that there are specialized sites out there that offer customized RSS feeds for separate TV shows (which make life much easier)? Given below are summarized information about three such free services.
Site Name: ezRSS (http://ezrss.it/)
Signup URL: Signup not required
Stats: 200+ shows & 20000+ users
Description: ezRSS is a service that provides custom RSS feeds for all EZTV released TV shows (which are available on eztv.it). In other words, you’ll find RSS feeds for almost any US/Canadian show on this site. You can either subscribe to a pre defined feed or subscribe to a feed based on a search term (new results that match this term will be pushed via RSS). ezRSS was launched by EZTV when the popular service tvRSS was shut down.
Site Name: showRSS (http://showrss.karmorra.info)
Signup URL: http://showrss.karmorra.info/?cs=register
Description: showRSS is another successor to tvRSS. It’s a great service which supports over 100 different TV series. Site has a uder friendly interface and discovering and subscribing to feeds is very easy. All feed items come complete with appropriate .torrent file for easy downloading.
Site Name: http://www.xtvi.com
Signup URL: http://www.xtvi.com/torrents.php?mode=signup
Description: XTVi is actually not a TV RSS feed directory. While the site offers custom RSS feeds for almost every show, it primarily acts as a public TV torrents index. To find the full list of shows and associate RSS feeds, select “All TV Shows’ link from the top left menu. You can read our detailed review of XTVi from this link.
