Bittorrent Guide

We use "BitTorrent" as a form of distributing episodes among users quickly. Torrents are not guaranteed to stay available for long, so get it while you can.

You have a great product, many customers, and are delivering your product to hordes of happy customers online. Serving large files creates problems of scaling, flash crowds, and reliability. As you grow, they become more central to your business, but your bandwidth costs go up as well. It's a vicious cycle.

There is a solution. BitTorrent is a simple software product which addresses all of these problems.

The key to cheap file distribution is to tap the unutilized upload capacity of your customers. It's free. Their contribution grows at the same rate as their demand, creating limitless scalability for a fixed cost.

Problem: more customers require more bandwidth
The BitTorrent Solution: customers help distribute content

BitTorrent is not just a concept, but has a functioning implementation, already capable of swarming downloads across unreliable networks. This is the result of over two years of intensive development.

You can find out more at www.bittorrent.com and download the original client. Some of the other clients available are Azureus, G3, ABC and BitTornado. We recommend BitTornado for downloading our releases.

If you are using a Router, you can find help regarding what ports to forward here.

If we have torrents running at the moment, you can find them on our tracker here. If it is down, this means we don't currently have torrents running. Remember to SEED for at least a ratio of 100% / 1.0 to allow others to get the file from you!
