BitTorrent community has many specialized TV torrent trackers including veteran sites such as BitMeTV as well as promising new trackers such as ShareTheRemote. There are however not many ratio free TV trackers around - BzEe.TV is a site that aims to fill this gap. BzEe is a brand new ratioless tracker which indexes international Television series (mostly from United States) and tracks both individual weekly episodes as well as complete season packs. You may have not heard about this site before but it’s not an uber secret elite tracker that’s impossible to get into – BzEe.TV is currently open for signup and anyone is free to register an check it out (they have plans to close registrations once user limit hits 1000).
We wouldn’t categorize BzEe as the first ratio free TV tracker as there are several other similar sites that are ‘close’ to being ratio free. TVTorrents.com for example is based on credits system (which still closely resembles a ratio system) and TVTorrentZ employs a unique system which combines seeding hours, adoption, etc. BzEe on the other hand does not enforce any minimum global ratio rules on its members – only requirements is to seed for at least 72 hours within the first 7 days since download completion. The actual amount of data you upload does not matter as long as the seeding time requirements are met – should be good news for those with low bandwidth internet connections.
However, keep in mind that BzEe is a brand new tracker. The site opened signups to the public just two days ago so don’t expect to find the same level of activity of BitMeTV on this tracker. Torrent index is also small but new releases seem to be added at a decent pace – as of 23/10/2009 there were over 500 active torrents. Both XViD releases as well as HD x264 encodes are available for download. Speaking of the UI, if you are used to somewhat modern tracker scripts such as Gazelle you might find BzEe’s layout (which is based on TorrentTrader) to be slightly dated. However it has all the basic functions usually found on a private tracker so this shouldn’t be a serious problem.
Signups for BzEe are currently open. According to a post on their forums, registrations will close once the user limit reaches ~1000. If you are looking to be part of a new ratio free TV tracker, go ahead and check the site out.
