When you talk about top TV torrent trackers in the world, BitMeTV, TVTorrents.Com, Freshon.TV and BTN are usually the sites that come to mind. However, you don’t often see ‘TV-Vault’ being mentioned as a ‘top’ TV tracker. While TVV may not index newest episodes of modern television shows, it pretty much kicks any other torrent tracker in the ass when it comes to rare, classic, old series that are hard to find. Just a couple of weeks ago, this site surpassed the 2000 indexed TV shows mark making it one of the best online resources for retro TV content. “Because Chuck Norris Karate Kommandoes is clearly better than that Lost shit” was a tagline the tracker used when it launched back in 2008 – if you tend to agree, you might find yourself at home on TV Vault. For those who still haven’t become members, signups are open and around 1500 free slots are currently available.

TV Vault

A project started by the crew behind Cinemageddon, TV Vault has been online for more than two years. This was one of the first trackers to utilize the now famous Gazelle codebase and it remains to be one of the best Gazelle implementations you can find to date. Over the years, TVV has done pretty well in terms of member recruitment and expansion of the torrent index. It currently tracks 6000+ torrents related to 2200+ different television shows and the registered user base hovers somewhere around the 13500 mark.

Although most major TV torrent trackers do index classic TV shows to a certain extent, nothing ever comes close to the vast array of content found on TV Vault. From black and white TV serials made in the early 1930s to relatively new shows made in the 2000s, this site is a heaven for fans of retro content. TVV’s 6000 strong torrent index looks mediocre at first but there is actually a lot more content than it meets the eye. Most of these torrents are full season packs, each carrying around 10-20 episodes of a particular show – this would easily amount to 25000+ torrents on a regular TV tracker. Season packs are grouped together so that finding all available episodes of a show is very easy.

    Thanks Filenetwork.

    I was looking for complete series of Alfred Hitchcock Presents all 7 seasons with all episodes and Alfred Hitchcock Hour all 3 seasons with all episodes. I finally got that.

    Tried to find these on various private and public torrents sites and all those DDL forums and sites but not everything was available.

    Also i would agree with you that it is the best Gazelle implementation around.

    The site has now been down for like a month. I think your article on the site must have gotten it reported and shut down. Damn shame :(

    Wow thanks. No one even told us members. So strange. Just go the old site and doesn't load with no new link.
