This is probably old news (unless you have been watching our Twitter) however since we got several E-mails asking why it’s not posted, here goes. ScienceHD, the hugely successful private tracker for science fiction movies, TV series and documentaries, has increased user limit and opened public registrations. As a regular reader of this blog you may already have a membership on SciHD since it’s been featured multiple times on FILEnetworks before – including when the tracker accidentally opened signups for several hours back in August 2009. Anyways this time around it’s not an accident – ScienceHD is officially open and interested members are free to join.


If you are hearing about this site for the first time, you might wonder what all the fuss is about. Well let me put it this way – SciHD is well on its way to become the BitMeTV of documentaries and science fiction content. After being launched back in April/May 2009, site has undergone significant improvements in the past few months, both related to indexed content as well as site features. It now has a strong community of close to 5000 registered members and over 2600 active torrents containing a wealth of infotainment. Download speeds on most of the torrents are pretty good. Site navigation and usability has also improved over time with additional customizations added to the already versatile gazelle codebase that Sci-HD uses.

Speaking of the content on SHD, they can be grouped into two main categories;  science fiction movies/TV shows (entertainment) and documentaries/other educational content (infotainment). From TV shows such as Heroes, Eureka to HD documentaries from premium publishers such as Discovery Channel, National Geographic, The History Channel, etc, SHD should be a paradise if you are into shows like this.

ScienceHD categories
Some of the torrent categories on SHD – there are lots more but we don’t have room here to display the full list 

As mentioned at the start of this article, SHD is open for signup. Site will continue to accept pubic registrations either for 1 week (5 more days from today) or until the membership count reaches 7000 – whichever comes first. Following list of summarized rules (quoted from forum) should help you survive on this tracker:

1. Use your Account: Inactivity rules here ==> kb.php?id=7

2. Use a valid Client: rules.php?p=clients

3. Keep a good ratio: rules.php?p=ratio

4. Follow the upload guide carefully and ask questions if in doubt before uploading: forums.php?action=viewthread&threadid=28

5. Follow our Golden Rules carefully. Especially do not get caught uploading SciHD materials marked "Exclusive" elsewhere, and do NOT trade our invites: rules.php

Keep an eye on their inactivity rules as this is a tracker that only seeks active members.
