Free TVShows application for Mac OS X automatically downloads your favorite TV shows via BitTorrent

TVShows is a free Mac OS X application that automatically downloads your favorite TV shows.

With TVShows, you don’t need to manually download torrent files, TVShows does it for you. TVShows is not a Bittorrent client, it just automatically downloads the correct torrent file at the right time. TVShows will automatically use your preferred Bittorrent client to download the shows.

Manage your subscriptions and preferences from within the TVShows application, and TVShows takes care of the rest: a background process is automatically launched at a regular interval to check for new episodes.

Features include:
• Automatic process in background: no need to run the application 24/7; silent and unobstructive
• Intelligent: downloads the right episode as soon as it is available
• Quality selection: choose a quality setting (Normal, High or Very High), TVShows downloads the best available one

  1. That’s that – I for one can gladly go back to downloading content on bit torrent.

    My Conscience is clear I used to buy it but their greed knows no bounds. If you are prepared to buy it for 1.99 they will ask for 4.99 and if you ever pay that, you can count on them to bump up the price once again to say… 7.99 per episode.

    Now, I will get my stuff for 0.00 per episode – Screw you assh***s!

  2. Coincidence that this was posted right after the NBC announcement? I don’t disagree with downloading bittorrents, especially for NBC shows now, but it’s probably not smart for MDN to be promoting illegal activities.

    just my $0.02

  3. And don’t forget that torrents are an excellent source for music, movies and software as well.

    Have you seen the greediness of some software companies, the code fits well on a DVD and yet you sometimes have to pay more than $9.99.

    And what’s worse: not all software are priced the same!!!
    iLife $79, QuickTime $29.99, OS X $129 … I could go on for ever
    This is so confusing for the customer!!!
    The price should be the same within a category
    Music 0.99$, TV-show $1.99, Movie $9.99, Software $19.99.

    Why? Because all music tracks are equal. All TV-shows are equal. All movies are equal. All software are equal. There is no need for confusing differential pricing.

  4. @Coincidence,
    I agree that the timing is suspicious, but MDN can advocate or post anything they want (within reason). It is called free speech. They certainly have no legal concerns in doing it.

    My 3 cents!

  5. At this point I hope that people will just more and more download stuff via bit torrent. First it was Universal, now it’s NBC. They really just do not get it. People will pay a fair price, but they will not bend over for the soap. These companies need to be shown and reminded that we can get this stuff for free if we damn well please to.

    EMI did a good thing a few months back, but that’s about it.
