Nowadays there’s a TV tracker for almost everything. You have BMTV, BTN, TVT.com etc for US & Canadian TV shows, UKNova, The Box and TVChaos for UK TV, DesiTorrents and a lot more others for Indian/Pakistani shows and so on. Here’s another private tracker that specializes in somewhat rare TV content – Diwana is a BitTorrent site that tracks television shows from Australia and New Zealand. Apart from drama, documentaries, comedies, lifestyles shows, kids shows, etc, Diwana tracks a whole lot of sports content including cricket and rugby torrents. We did an article on this tracker way back in 2008 – the site is still going string with more content and more activity so it’s time to do an updated post. Speaking of updated articles, there’s no better time to write them than when signups are open.
Last time we featured Diwana, it tracked 17000 torrents and had 20000 members. These stats have further improved during the past few months and the site now tracks in excess of 25000 torrents and registered user base has surpassed 32000. Needless to say this is a tracker with very good activity. The number of torrents could have been a lot higher had they not moved new sports releases to http://acrossthetasman.com (AcrossTheTasman is Diwana’s sister tracker and is currently closed for signup – however, existing Diwana.org members can request a free invite from staff).
Speaking of content, majority of Diwana’s torrent index consists of Television shows from Australia and New Zealand. This includes both full season packs and individual episodes of primetime TV, comedies, drama, soaps, game shows, science/medical series, telemovies and so on. Note that Diwana no longer indexes new sports content – sports torrents are still available but all of them are releases made in 2009 or before.

Built on TS Special Edition codebase, Diwana comes with all basic features of a private tracker. This includes a seed bonus system, requests, re-seeds, forums, advanced search, separate subtitles section, etc.
As stated above, signups for Diwana are currently open. They are known to open and close regularly so get in while you can. Note that accounts will be deleted after 60 days of inactivity.
