Bit Torrent or something else better for

Bit Torrent or something else better for downloading movies and tv episodes? Been ages since I attempted this and using Bit Torrent site you need to basically pay for everything now - shocking! :-) Can someone please suggest best program or whatever it is called to download (have broadband) so I can 'source' free movies, tv episodes, music, etc. TIA

Bittorrent is the protocol ..... Not the actual software you use to use this protocol. Just like Internet Exploder or Mozilla Firefox uses TCP/IP to do it's stuff, the best bittorrent client µTorrent [] uses Bittorrent to do it's stuff. It's confusing because they nearly all use the word 'torrent'in naming the client [Azureus is the exception I think]. You will never have to pay for them if you use free public trackers: - - - - etc.

Thank you guys :-) I have successfully dl utorrent and now happily downloading, thanks heaps.

Is there a recommended software for viewing the movies and tv episodes, etc? TIA

VLC or if you're a big windows media fan, get the k-lite codec pack. I prefer VLC.

This is great I have crappy ADSL Broadband and still can download 4-5 movies an hour using although searching through newsgroups sucks arse and easynews costs US$10 per 10 gig
