In Need of a New Torrent Search Service

For a couple of years now, I have been using a number of torrent sites to download stuff — they are mostly TV series or movies I haven’t seen in theaters. I started with MiniNova and then moved on to The Pirate Bay.

However, recently, I have been having problems with Pirate Bay as most of the time the site is not loading at all. I also bought a HD media player (HDX NMT 1000) a couple of months with 1TB HDD because it has a built-in bittorrent client that downloads directly into the device (I no longer need a PC for that).

kickass torrentsSo now, I have been in the look out for a new torrent search service. At the moment, I am looking at this new one call Kick Ass Torrents. It’s a fairly new torrent search portal but is looking to be a good one.

It’s got a nice, clean design with a web2.0-feel to it and best of all, no annoying ads or pop-up banners. And aside form the usual trackers, there are also direct HTTP downloads for selected files.

The volume of content isn’t very extensive yet considering the site is fairly new. However, I’d settle for this one anytime as long as the current stream of new updates are regular and well-seeded.

I liked the idea that they’ve also integrated IMDB into the system so I can browse around for new movies or TV shows and get some background information about them thru IMDB. I usually find new TV shows to follow using IMDB.

I’ve already downloaded a couple of torrents from the site and so far, they all went down perfectly. If you’re looking for some alternative torrent portal, consider checking out Kick Ass Torrents.
