  • [TV] BroadcasThe.Net (BTN) Review


    Tracker Name: BTN
    Signup URL: Invite or Interview if you can get an interview code from a member.
    Tracker Type: BTN is a ratioless TV tracker
    Tracker Birthday: November 2nd, 2009




    Tracker Description

    BTN is a ratioless TV show only tracker. This is the only tracker I use for tv shows because they have great contents. This tracker has tons of torrents 105K (see screenshots below). But be not afraid, all these torrents are very well organized by series, individual seasons and episodes. Single episodes, except pilots, get trumped (deleted) when a season is finish airring. Some see it as a good thing, it keeps things clean and uncluttered. Others see it as negative, mainly, because of inability to download single episodes. Scene torrents are extracted from archives, and all user uploads are not allowed to be archived. All internal release are double upload, which is helpful if you are trying to progress through user classes. From time to time they have a site wide 2x upload as well. Highest class normal users can reach is Master, who have the ability to give away unlimited invites. They recently added the Overload class which is almost impossible to reach, you will know what I mean if you check out the user class chart below.

    Features

    • Notify of New Uploads - you select which tv show you want to be notified when an a new episode is uploaded.
    • TV Favorites - where you can add shows that you watch and it'll display status of the show, last aired episode, next episode, and airtime.
    • TV News - page (not in the forum) where all the news about shows are posted, obviously.
    • Reviews - where users can review shows and you can vote on these reviews up or down.
    • Stamps - you buy stamps with tv show art to display on you profile page.
    • TV schedule
    • Bookmarks
    • IRC announce channel

    Ratings & Personal Commentary

    Content: 10/10
    They're very well organized which really helps all their torrents stay alive. They have almost every single TV shows every aired. BTN have contests to help fill in gaps in categories where they are lacking in shows. They have all types of encodes and release: 480p, 720p, 1080p, 1080i, portable devices, web rips, & scene releases.

    Speed: 10/10
    The speed is very fast because a lot of users are using seedbox. Of course older torrents with low amount of seeder is slow just like any other trackers.

    Community: 9/10
    Forums and IRC channels are very active.

    Pre-times:
    They have a bot which auto-uploads the latest TV shows within seconds after the show finish airing. Keep in mind that scene torrents have to be extracted/uncompressed from rar so it takes few seconds longer then the other trackers.

    Really nice, informative, concise review. I wasn't aware they replaced single episodes with packs.

    Good job. BTW, if it was your intention to conceal the full name of the tracker, you missed it on the picture for the "TV Show Page."

        Don't give up and you'll get there. Just stick around, be active in the forums (post a lot) and I'm sure the 55% forum will offer you a lot more BTN GA threads than the 10% . Although I got mine from the 10% forum.

          Yeah, I know, and that's what I intend to do. BTN is one of the main reasons I joined this forum, a lot of people say that this tracker is the absolute best for tv fanatics like me, so the last thing that's on my mind is giving up :).

          Well, I sure wouldn't like to wait 2 years to get into BTN . I know it's not impossible, I'll keep looking.

            Nice review @p5ycho, good job mate.

            I have a question though mate. Apparently you are using the SMPTE v2 stylesheet but how did you get the file type and release type with different colors? I love it! Check the circles on the screenshot below;



            Thank in advance

              Discovered it myself a few weeks ago. If you click [Edit], under the Layout tab there is an option called "Color Code Torrents".

                I'm looking for BTN invite for ages :/

                I read few days ago that invite sistem doesn't work atm, is that true? Also, is there any BTN invites in 33% forum, didn't see any in 10%
                To my knowledge the invite system is working. There is one giveaway in 33%.

                        been a member here for less than 2 weeks, it's a "must" have for a tv tracker.
                        i think it's the best for that type. community is awesome, and irc helps a lot.

                          I also only recently got an invite to this tracker and it definitely lives up to the hype. I really appreciate the use of banners, posters, and fanart images (looks like it scrapes TheTVDB.com for its images) to brighten up the listings. If the site contained ClearArt and Logos from FanArt.TV, then I could just scrape this site for images to use in my own XBMC library, LOL

                            The invite system bugs were fixed but the Invite code and Interview system have been done away with.The staff say they might have an IRC invite application.Nothing certain though.Only master class can send invites.BTN just got harder to get.I got my invite through Reddit.
                            There are many cool things you can do with their API and also integrating it with Sickbeard to Auto Download.

                              It is the best tracker for TV shows. Ratioless, good speed, good pre, anyone can seed and leech very easy.
