Ever since its inception back in late 2009, BTN has come a long way as a private TV torrent tracker. The site pretty much has all major television series (both old and new) available for download, is based on a modern user interface rich with advanced features, has fast pre times and is ratio free. To put it short, BTN now rivals long standing specialized TV torrent sites such as BitMeTv.Com and TVTorrents.Com in terms of available content, site features as well as active user base. There has always been great demand for BTN membership within the BitTorrent community but getting in has become harder over the last couple of months as the site closed it’s IRC invites channel and reduced the number of invites issued to existing members. If you are one of the folks looking to get into this awesome tracker, there is finally some good news – BTN now runs on a more powerful, brand new server and in celebration, staff have re opened the IRC invites channel which was closed for months.

BTN New Server

We have already discussed in a previous post about BTN’s site features which are a major attraction for this tracker. There would be little point in repeating the same information in this article – if you are looking for a detailed overview of BTN, refer to this post which includes screenshots and a summarized list of site features. Of course, BTN keeps improving every day and new enhancements are added quite frequently. Some of the notable new additions include the auto uploader bot (which has been in operation for some time now), an enhanced search, Actors page, TV news page, improvements to series pages and series lists pages, new skins and lots more.

For those looking for updated site statistics, BTN now tracks nearly 25000 TV torrents which cover 4600 different TV shows, 13000 episodes, 4500 seasons involving 10000+ actors. Want to see how this tracker fares with other leading TV torrent sites out there? Refer to the table below.

Tracker No. Of Torrents No. Of Users
BTN 24800 18200
BitMeTV 29500 20500
TVTorrents.Com* 17000? 56000?
Freshon.TV 10000 19000?

*Statistics for TVT.Com may not be accurate – its ‘Stats’ section currently has an error which prevents actual statistics from being displayed.

As mentioned in the title of this post, IRC interviews are now open. You will be able to get a free invite to join BTN if you get through the interview process conducted by site staff. 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. We do not know for how long the channel will remain open so get in while you can. IRC channel details and are listed below:

Server: irc.omgwtfhax.net
Channel: #BTN-Invites
Direct Link: irc://irc.omgwtfhax.net/BTN-Invites

Make sure to follow instructions mentioned on channel topic. Spamming and sending private messages (PM) to staff without permission will likely get you kicked out from the channel. Good Luck!

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Unfortunately it just keeps saying 'User limit reached'. Been saying that for a while now, hopefully they'll increase the limit.
