Well this came as quite a surprise but it’s true – The DVD Club (TDC) is currently open for signup. TDC is a private BitTorrent tracker that specializes in movies and TV shows in untouched DVDR and Blu Ray formats. Almost every file sharer is probably familiar with DVDRips and BRRips that are found in countless general/0-day trackers. The DVD Club is not just another tracker that indexes movie and TV rips – in fact, you won’t find any DVDRips, BRRips, etc on TDC. It only has untouched, non-ripped versions of DVDs (Or Blu Rays) that come complete with interactive menus, bonus features, extras and all the other goodies that usually aren’t available in rips.
We’ve seen several new DVDR trackers popping up in recent times but TDC is one of the oldest trackers catering to this niche. It’s been online for more than three years and is a well established site tracker in the BitTorrent scene. As of 21/10/2009, TDC has an active user base of 8400+ registered members. That’s over 2400 new members added since January 2009, and the site was in invite only mode for the most part. Also keep in mind that TDC purges inactive members very frequently – collectors don’t stand a chance on this tracker.
Speaking of the content in TDC, you can find both movies and TV shows here. TDC initially began as a DVDR only tracker but it expanded with the arrival of Blu Ray, etc and caught up with the times. Now, untouched DVD5/DVD9/R5 (both PAL and NTSC) as well as x264 encoded Blu Ray movies are plentiful on this tracker.
As you can see from the screenshot above, TDC has a nice clean layout, well organized search features and easy-to-identify color coded torrents. They are currently running a Halloween theme that’s why the category icons look a little odd. Speaking of Halloween, expect to find a lot of horror movies on TDC as they only recently ran the Horror Fest 2009 competition.
The DVD Club is usually closed for signup – there was a time it didn’t open up for years but open signups have been more frequent during end 2008 and 2009. However this is the first open registration in almost 4 months so they are still not that commonplace. Following is quoted from site homepage:
Open Sign Ups - [Oct-19-2009]
We are open until some undisclosed date/time, so hurry and let your friends know. Just remember cheating/trading will get you banned so think twice before doing it, we are watching
Also please use the site(leech/seed) if you are a collector you'll get disabled in no time WE WANT ACTIVE USERS!!!!!
What they say about collectors is true. If you don’t plan on using it, don’t even bother to register. But if you actually are a fan of untouched DVDR/Blu-Ray content, this is one of the best trackers there if for that niche.
