IPTV Torrents is an awesome tracker. It’s awesome because it tracks unique content that you pretty much can’t find anywhere else. I’ve been using BitTorrent trackers since 2004 and IPTV Torrents is the first ever tracker I’ve come across that specializes in video podcasts and internet shows. Now, this is a torrent site made especially for geeks and tech fanatics – the site tracks individual episodes and complete packs of popular video podcasts such as The Digg Reel, Systm, BSoD, HAK 5, ROFL, Food Mob and a number of other internet shows, both old and new (for those who are unfamiliar with the term podcast, it’s a series of video/audio files released over the web in an episodic format – something like a TV show but broadcast over the internet). The site is still brand new but with a lot of unique content under its belt and with a dedicated staff team developing the site, IPTV Torrents’ future looks very bright.
Quoted below is what the owner of IPTV torrents posted on Reddit’s /r/trackers SubReddit:
I run a little website called iptvarchive and a few months ago, myself and a few online buddies put together IPTVtorrents. So if you happen to like all the old video podcasts like infonomicon, packet sniffers, hacktv, or even the newer ones like shows from Revision3, we are trying to make a sort of one-stop-shop for shows.
I know it doesn't look like much, but we are passionate about internet shows and if one person finds something they like, that makes the whole thing worthwhile. Currently, I am really the only person making uploads, so if you have something you'd like to share, pop by and say hi. Otherwise, leech your heart out!
As of 8/3/2011, IPTV Torrents tracked around 110 active torrents and had a registered users base of 50 members. It’s still new and hasn’t had much publicity yet - expect the statistics to increase as days progress. Note that this is a niche site targeted at geeks. While the tracker might not find as large a following as a general/0doay tracker, it’s uniqueness will definitely act as an advantage in recruiting new members.
As you can see from the screenshot above, IPTVT tracks a lot of complete seasons of popular internet shows. Some of these are of older shows that have now ended. They do index new episodes of modern podcasts but we understand that there is a wait time for new uploads – this is to ensure that shows creators do not get ripped off and they too get adequate traffic for the content they created. To put it short, this trackers aim seems to become a repository of video podcasts, but not to pirate everything and cause damage to original publishers. As per the owners comment on Reddit, IPTV Torrents even has permission from some original authors to publish their content as torrents. On a side note, if anyone reading this has his/her own internet show, this tracker might be a good platform to distribute it to the masses.
Registrations for IPTV Torrents is currently open. If you are a fan of podcasts and internet shows, this is an excellent tracker to have.
