During the past few days we’ve continuously been posting about new private torrent trackers. Well here’s something different – SweNews is related to private trackers but is not a private tracker. It’s a web based service that traces torrents from 8 leading Swedish private torrent sites. It’s somewhat of a cross between reduced functionality version of Tottler and a pre database. The homepage of SweNews indexes a list of HDTV releases, DVDR releases and HD movie releases. Clicking on a release name takes you to a separate page which includes not only an NFO but also torrent racing information such as which tracker was the first to index that particular release.
SweNews is a pretty new service which is still in its early days. It currently extracts release and tracer information 8 leading Swedish private trackers including XNT, SparVar, TTi, SweTV, SweBits and SceneHD. Releases that fall under the following categories are indexed - DVDR PAL, HD 720p, TV SWE, DVDR CUSTOM, HD 1080p, TV-SWE 720p, DVDR TV, HD-TV 720p, HD-TV 1080p. It’s interesting to note that no XViD releases are not indexed at all.
As mentioned earlier, clicking on a release name takes you to a detailed description page which looks something like the screenshot below:
If you are interested in ‘torrent racing’ this site might be helpful. It does not require you to connect to an IRC channel, offers an easy to use search feature as well as category based sorting. However the limited number of trackers it features as well as the limited number of release categories used for indexing might be turn offs for some readers. Anyways the service is free and requires no registration – check it out.
