Big news for fans of TV torrents. In a rather unexpected move earlier today, veteran private TV torrent tracker BitMeTV opened registrations to the public for a limited time. Why is this big news? 1. BMTV is one of the largest TV trackers in existence 2. It hasn’t had a proper open signup in almost 3 years, the last one being held in 2008. This time around the news is official and not just a rumor or gossip. Limited open signups were acknowledged by site staff in a mass PM sent to all existing members. For those of you who are new to the torrent scene, BMTV is a highly sought after private tracker specializing in television shows. From individual episodes to full season packs, you can find here almost all major TV series, both old and new.
As more experienced BitTorrent fans would remember, BMTV has been around since..well..forever. The tracker is now 6 years old and is one of the oldest private torrent sites around. However it’s almost always been a closed, invite only community throughout this time – this is why BMTV is one of the most requested sites of all times in BitTorrent invite forums and blogs.
With 29000+ torrents and an active user base of 23000 members, BMTV ranks right up there amongst top TV torrent trackers in the world. It tracks TV shows and documentaries from around the world (mostly U.S, but Canadian, Australian, British and other foreign shows are also indexed) and these are usually available for download in both standard and high definition formats. Individual episodes, complete seasons as well as a lot of internal packs may be found here. Some of the torrents in BMTV’s main index are shown in the screenshot below:
Coming back to the hot topic, yes signups are currently open. A mass PM was sent to all existing members earlier today, which simply said:
OPEN SIGNUP IS BACK FOR A LIMITED TIME
We do not know till when the doors would remain open. However, this is a very rare occurrence and in case you haven’t created an account yet, get in while you can. This is a great tracker to have if you are a TV fan.
