It’s always good to hear about BitTorrent trackers teaming up instead of having online flame wars and hostility towards one another. BTN and TehConnection (TC) are two latest private trackers to enter such partnership deal – this was officially announced on both sites roughly 6 hours ago (at time of this post). BTN is a feature rich tracker for TV shows and TehConnection is an equally good resource for downloading movie torrents. The said partnership is primarily based on invites to each site being offered on the other. Ultimately, it’s a win-win situation for users of both trackers - if you have an account on one of these sites, getting into the other just became a whole lot easier. Both BTN and TehConnection are closed for public signup and the only way into either one of these sites right now is through recruitment partnerships such as the one just announced.

TehConnection, a project started by the crew behind SceneTorrents (ScT) was launched to the public back in 2008. It’s a specialized movie tracker which allows its members to download a ton of movies both old and new (in SD/HD formats), at pretty good download speeds. Based on a customized version of What.CD’s Gazelle codebase, TC sports an elegant look and feel which is a pleasure to navigate. During it’s early days, TC did open signups to the public several times but later this was limited to invites being offered through their IRC channel. Now, even the invites channel has been closed down and the only way you can become a member is through recruitment threads on other trackers such as What.CD, StB and BTN (unless you know someone who can invite you). If you are an existing member on any one of these trackers, obtaining a TehConnection invite could just be a PM away. The announcement on BTN is quoted below:

We believe that relationships with other trackers is always a good thing, so we have partnered with TehConnection to help our communities grow!
TC is one of the best, if not the best, film sites in the torrenting world. Going with quality over quantity, they have a great selection of high quality movies for everyone to enjoy. Boasting an epic site design and code, great selection of movies and awesome community, I'm sure any movie lover would enjoy this site!
That said, if you want to get in over there, its easy; send a PM to ONE of these users

Make sure you give it at least a day or two to get a response, these guys are busy running a tracker so spare time isn't always easy to come by.
Beware, if you don't put your email in the PM, your PM will be ignored!

Tehconnection currently tracks over 13600 active torrents. There are 10500+ movies indexed which involve over 200000+ actors, 6500+ directors and 13000+ writers. The site’s active user base as at 10/7/2010 was 11500. For more information on TC please read this post.

BTN, a much younger tracker than TehConnection, started off its operations in early 2010. The site was an instant hit among the BitTorrent community thanks to it’s impressive set of features and it’s ‘ratio free’ download system. Based on a heavily customized version of Gazelle codebase, BTN made discovering and downloading TV shows a pleasure with it’s great design. The site constantly kept improving and is now packed with seedbox hosted torrents, autouploader bots and great organizational features such as separate pages for each TV series. (for detailed list of features including a comparison between leading TV trackers, read our full BTN review here). Ever since its inception, BTN has never had an open signup and registration was only possible through invite applications or IRC invites (both of which have now closed). However if you are an existing Tehconnection member, you now have the chance to join BTN just by sending a PM to one of the BTN reps on TC. The announcement on TehConnection is as follows:

In the past we had a partnership with What.cd, invites to each site being offered by the other. That line is still intact, and now we offer another line: BTN!
BTN is a ratio-free TV tracker running on a well customized Gazelle base. Lots of good content, good pretimes and good speeds, this tracker is the up and coming rookie to keep your eye on.

BTN currently tracks over 13300 active torrents. This includes ~8000 different TV shows and 2500+ TV series. The site’s active user base hovers somewhere around 5000.
