    BitMeTV


    BitMeTV is widely considered to be the best tracker for TV series. It holds an unbelievable amount of series, and is a must of every TV junkie. Episodes are usually uploaded to the tracker within minutes after their release, and there's also a requests section for specific torrents. Initial versions are usually the basic 350MB/45min episodes, followed by HDTV versions for most popular series. The interface of BitMeTV is very good, and makes it easy to find what you want. The coding of the site and tracker appears to be excellent - they are both very stable, with almost zero downtime.

    Categories:

    BitMeTV contains a huge amount of categories, some of which are general (News/Drama/Cartoons etc.), while others are more specialized categories for certain (popular) TV series.


    Forums:

    The forums are very much alive and contain the usual categories.


    Invites:

    Recently (Sep-28-07), the invite policy was changed, apparently due to abuse of the invite system. In the new system, PU and above may hold up to 3 invites at a time. Used invite slots are automatically renewed every 30 days depending on the ratio and downloaded amount in the 30 days prior to the invite renewal, according to the following "formula":

    Ratio is 0.90-0.999 and downloaded 1-7GB = 1 invite
    Ratio is 1.0-1.049 and downloaded 7-10GB = 2 invites
    Ratio is 1.05+ and downloaded 10GB+ = 3 invites

    While there are a lot of BitMeTV invites out there, most newcomers may find it somewhat difficult to get one. This is probably caused by the fact that BitMeTV staff is known for their strict and efficient approach towards trading, and even towards free invites giveaways on public forums. Most BitMeTV members will think twice (and often more than that) before handing out an invite, especially to people they do not know.

    Staff:

    While it is generally a good idea not to cheat / trade / defy tracker rules in any way, BitMeTV is one of the trackers you really don't want to do that on. The staff openly states that they scan all the major invite boards in search of invite posts and trades. If they catch you defying one of their rules, you will be caught, and you will be banned!
    Based on that, some people tend to fear the BitMeTV staff, as they have a reputation of people you do not want to mess with. That being said, I have to note that from my own personal experience, in the few times I've been in their support channel on IRC, they've been more than courteous and helpful.

    Donations:

    The tracker contains 2 different donation paths. First path is a simple donation, where the donators get an Elite status for a certain amount of time and a cute star next to their names. The second path is donation in exchange to upload credit.


    Additional Available Features

    RSS feed, IRC (see site for details).

    Additional Information

    Download speeds are very high, as there seems to be an abundance of members with seedboxes / fast internet connections. To effectively upload on BitMeTV, it is advisable to catch the torrent very early after it is uploaded to the tracker, as after a few minutes on the tracker, popular torrents literally get hunders of seeders/leechers, and then it becomes an all out war. For the same reason, uploading can be somewhat difficult to people with small internet pipes.
    Every user can upload Made-for-TV torrents, other stuff must be approved by a moderator (read: you can't upload non-TV material).

    Information:

    BitMeTV is widely considered as the best tracker currently for TV shows.

    It holds an unbelievable amount of series, and is a must of every TV junkie.

    Episodes are usually uploaded to the tracker within minutes after their release, and there's also a requests section for specific torrents.

    Initial versions are usually the basic 350MB/45min episodes, followed by HDTV versions for most popular series.

    The interface of BitMeTV is very good, and makes it easy to find what you want.

    The coding of the site and tracker appears to be excellent - they are both very stable, with almost zero downtime.

    Once the ongoing TV show's season has ended, all separate episodes are deleted.

    And in a instance, the whole season will be uploaded instead for the downloader's convenience which is a plus plus for this great tracker.
