Here’s some more news from the torrent tracker scene – this time about three veteran trackers. LeechersLair (LL), a General/0Day torrent tracker has opened registrations to the public after a rather long pause. LL is not the only tracker to open registrations though – one of the best untouched DVD trackers in existence, The DVD Club has also opened signups for one day only. The occasion? They’re celebrating 4 years of being online. Speaking of birthdays, another major tracker is celebrating their birthday today – the popular TV torrent site BitMeTV is now 5 years old. BMTV doesn’t have open signups like the rest but its members may be in for a few surprises if what’s stated on the homepage is correct.
The DVD Club (TDC) is open
When it comes to downloading untouched DVD5/DVD9/BD5/BD9 torrents, the DVD Club is one of the best resources on the net. TDC indexes movies and TV shows in their original DVD/Blu Ray format, complete with menus, extras, bonus content and more. You won’t find any XViD rips here but there are some x264 encoded torrents which needless to say have excellent video quality. TDC will be open for signup and have sitewide free leech today, in celebration of their 4th birthday. You can read a detailed review of this tracker here (also includes screenshots).
LeechersLair registrations open
LeechersLair (LL) is one of those private trackers that’s gone through a lot. The site has undergone multiple URL changes, server issues and faced numerous other obstacles but in the end they’ve managed to survive. There are still intermittent uptime issues but LL is still a great General/0Day tracker with a good community and decent download speeds. They’ve opened registrations to the public after having last opened doors in last August. You can read a full review of this tracker from this link (screens included).

BitMeTV is 5 years old
Almost everyone who knows about BitMeTV dreams about getting into the tracker. It’s simply one of the best (if not the best) TV torrent trackers around. Although unnoticed by many, BMTV is one of the oldest private trackers in existence. It is now celebrating the 5th birthday which is a great achievement since not many trackers (private or public) survive for that long these days. BMTV is still going strong and have amassed around 22000 members and close to 25000 torrents as of 4/3/2010. It is currently unknown what benefits its members will receive as part of birthday celebrations – the site homepage simply says:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BITMETV
BITMETV IS 5 YEARS OLD!!
STAY TUNED FOR SURPRISES!!
What the ‘surprises' mentioned are currently unknown. It’s also worth noting that during their 5 years of being online, the site has only had open signups 2-3 times with the last open registration happening in August 2008.
