Re: TORRENTS - English language television in Poland

Screen size is generally smaller than you'd have with your home TV, but, picture quality isn't really an issue with torrent accessed programmes. Torrent TV shouldn't be confused with the streaming TV news clips you sometimes see on Yahoo or YouTube videos. It's totally different.

Watching on a computer used to bother me, but, I've got around this by hooking up an extra monitor to my home PC. I can now surf the net on one screen and watch Eastenders or Doctor Who on the other screen. Or spin around the second monitor and watch from the comfort of the sofa.

A lot of people simply burn their downloaded torrents onto DVD and watch through their standard TV setup. Doing so only takes a few minutes.

If you want to give torrents a go, you'll need to download this free program first:

Re: TORRENTS - English language television in Poland

The only real negative with torrents, as far as I'm concerned, is the time they take to download. Anything from a couple hours to days and days depending on how fast your internet connection might be and how many people are 'seeding' the torrent.

The whole first series of Grey's Anatomy (thanks, Mark, for the suggestion) took around 48 hours to download.

My latest project is the first series of Las Vegas (having just come back, I can't get enough of the place).

Try Dexter. Seriously.

Re: TORRENTS - English language television in Poland

...and BTW - you can always burn the files to DVD if you have a player that supports the .avi format. They cost as little as 150zl now.

Re: TORRENTS - English language television in Poland

Downloaded an episode of Dexter from Piratebay. Yep, pretty good. I'll download the first series once I've completed the third series of Survivors.

Give the Last Enemy a go on theBox. The first episode is ratio free.

Re: TORRENTS - English language television in Poland

Finished Dexter series 2 last night.

:-(

Re: TORRENTS - English language television in Poland

Question for Mark,

What sort of ratio / points do you have on UKNova and theBox?

Re: TORRENTS - English language television in Poland

Couldn't tell you - I very rarely use them.
