BTN has opened IRC interviews once again. This popular TV torrent tracker has so far managed to justify the huge hype it received during launch. In fact, we can boldly declare that BTN is one of the most innovative and feature rich private torrent trackers to be launched during the 2009 – 2010 period. This specialized ratio free TV torrent tracker has great content, good download speeds and of course, very fast pre times. Despite being an excellent torrent site, BTN is not out of reach of the average BitTorrent user. Although it remained completely closed (no user invites and closed down invite applications) for several months, this tracker is once again accepting new members through an IRC interview process.
If you’ve been browsing BitTorrent forums such as TPS or FST recently, you may have stumbled across threads which compare BTN to the likes of BitMeTV, TVTorrents.Com and Freshon.TV, the leading TV trackers in the world. This prompted us to check some statistics from these sites - here’s how BTN compares to other leading trackers of the same niche, in terms of number of users and active torrents:
|Tracker||No. Of Torrents||No. Of Users|
Is this tracker really the king of TV torrent sites? Not quite, but it’s definitely getting there. As you can see from the table above, BTN’s main ‘weakness’ compared to other sites is the lack of users. Existing members of the site would know that this isn’t too much of a problem but the current open interviews should help expand the user base in any case. Also remember that we’re comparing a tracker that’s only a few months old with some of the oldest private trackers in the BitTorrent scene. BitMeTV for instance is over 5 years old. Anyways one thing is clear – BTN has done exceptionally well in the short period of time it’s been online (oh and in terms of site usability features, BTN beats the hell out of all other sites mentioned above).
Since our last mention of the site, BTN has added several great new features. Once of the most attractive of these is the autouploader bot – this means that more scene releases will be added to the tracker at even faster pre times. A number of other usability features including enhanced search, Actors page, TV news page, improvements to series pages and series lists pages, 1 new skin (woodenglass), etc have also been introduced. For a detailed account of BTN’s features and screenshots, we suggest you check out this article.
As mentioned in the title of this post, IRC interviews are now open. The interview itself is not likely to take a lot of time but due to heavy demand, you may have to wait in a pretty long queue. IRC channel details and a few other helpful resources are listed below:
