Well, there’s P2L and then there’s this. The creators of Bitt.tv have shut down the site due to lack of donations in favor of a different model that charges $24 USD for a yearly subscription to their new ratio-free TV tracker at http://vizz.tv. So instead of running a top-notch torrent tracker (which they obviously failed at) where members will gladly donate, why not charge a one-time flat fee just so members can gain entrance? - without even offering a single iota of detail about what’s behind the $24 curtain. Talk about taking the ‘free’ out of BitTorrent - here’s the message staff sent out today to existing members of Bitt.tv:
Mass mail to all BitT.Tv users
This will be the last email from bitt.tv:’( (database will be destroyed so no need to delete account)
Well hi there, long time no spam
We have had a few changes (like you haven’t noticed) unfortunately we had to close bitt.tv due to lack of donations…
But the good news is we’ve started a new site ViZZ.Tv where there are big changes.. biggest being WE DON’T MONITOR RATIO!!! yes you heard right no more ratio driven site, yes theres ratio on your stats but you’ll never get a warning for bad ratio.. ratio has been kept purley for games and casino.
only thing we ask is you seed minimum 48hours for the whole week.. so seeding few hours a day won’t kill you right!!
so how to join this new and exiting site.. well, were only allowing max of 400 users on the site allready have about 30 so only 370 places left
heres the bad news only way in is yearly subscription of $24usd.. well it’s not that bad of a news
that will cover all site cost so no more worries about shutting the site down due to lack of donations
you can dl at your hearts desire, just make sure you don’t over do it
to subscribe https://vizz.tv/tos.html you will find subscription link at the bottom of the page.
once you have subscribed please email transaction details to email@example.com with the user name you want, once confirmed login details will be mailed back to you.
ps once we hit 400 users any one over will get their subscription rejected so hurry only 370 places available mass pm going to 7,000+ users subscription link will be removed once we hit target
Note: this is a mass email and has been sent to ALL members.
If anyone is silly enough to fall for this, please let us know what’s going on at this mystical pay-2-leech private tracker. Suggesting that Vizz.tv does fill up the 400 slots, that’s an eye-popping $9,600 - considerably more than it would cost to host the site for one year, even on the best server money can buy. As we’ve advocated several times here at FSF - keep your credit card in your wallet.
Negative feedback is not only condoned, but encouraged.
This is fun news.If it was legal than there some meaning to it.This is fully illegal and who knows what will happen after some days.You put your money in the box and the box vanishes due to notices.=No thanks.I am happy with my seedbox
So they only do it for the money….
/me offer Vizz Admin little mind
hahaha look at http://vizz.tv/index.html
title: New Document
will update main page when i can, still lurning html
i don’t really wanna join a tracker where the admin doesn’t even know the basics of html!
plus who the fuck pays for something they can get for free?
P.S the server is hosted in germany, WTF?
lol Oromis, ^epic fail
this site sounds great.

Initially I thought $24 wasn’t that much if we get to have Excellent Unlimited TV Content , but I never thought of the total they would gather. Clearly a Business they are setting up X(
The admins of this site are clearly tryin to cash in on the small minority of noooobs who fall for this and hand over there money.
What a JOKE.
Big Dave Says:
“ps once we hit 400 users any one over will get their subscription rejected”
Yeah right………I’m sure they will be rejected!
It’s also funny how the admin tryed to use php on a html page! We have got to wonder who the bigger noob(s) really are, the members? or the owners? Oh and why is there a link to freeforums.org on the index?
its like pedro’s
lol @ New Document
R u nuts?
not a bad idea
all lamers say : free free free
i don’t know this tracke but if it is good i think $24 is not too much
do you think is a problem donate 24$ for one year?
do you think that a tracker have no only one server but 3-4-5-6 good server?
i think there is too much lamers here
^@ IST - After you sign up, please enlighten us to what’s happening in there
It’s not a problem to donate $24 for a year, but the greater problem is being FORCED to donate $24 without having any idea about what’s inside. And I knew the old Bitt.tv - there’s no chance in hell that they were hosted on multiple servers. Good, very popular trackers are indeed hosted on multiple servers, but you’re mistaken with Bitt.tv. A simple whois check confirms that Bitt.tv is hosted on an OVH Kimsufi:
Who’s to say that this new site will be hosted on multiple servers? For now it’s hosted on a single OVH:
And even if a site runs multiple seedboxes to host content, it’s only ~£20/mo. for OVH Kimis anyways. Very few trackers shell out mad dollars for a top-of-the-line server in which it’ll only be used for torrents.
But $800 a month for server/seedbox costs? (and that only counts the monthly revenue generated from the first 400 signups under ‘beta’). A torrent tracker with only 400 members doesn’t require a server with a 1Gbps dedicated pipe running a Quad Core Xeon L5410 & 16GB RAM.
LOL. they suck
i mean all tracker have 3-4-5 server to seed torrent
not that use server for multiple host
yes they will fail when they charged like that and lots other tv tracker that more safe,free and
no shutdown bullshit.when a tracker is good people will donate and this guy probably after your hard earn money.
They will never be able to compete with actual tv trackers like BMTV
i bet all 400 slots get filled with members from different international copyright organisations with exotic acronyms thinking they’ve entered into the new bustling and illegal hub of file-sharing.
Why would users pay for something they can get for free in a better form? Even just looking at the site you can see the staff there cant even do something as simple as working a bit html.
Not to mention the fact users are paying $24 usd to share there content where there is no guarentee users will keep it seeded for them.
Also they charge on a yearly basis? I highly doubt this site will last long enough for peoples subscription to expire so what happens when this fails? do users get there money back as i cant see a use for there money as the server costs aint that much…
They failed once and they shall fail again, thanks for the LOLS
So I decided to man up and I paid for an account just to have a look at their elite contents, I have to say, it’s not that good imo. I don’t even have them bookmarked.
yes i heard that they r not special at all…but i see that they have some good pre’s they 2. on some races…:S
but design just make me puke…:S…my grandmom is better in PS work……opps this is Paint not PS…xP
ooh, OKAY Give us some screens to laugh at
Wow, the nerve of some people. What in the world makes them think that people are stupid enough to pay $24 to get access to some crappy half-assed tv-tracker when they can get those exact same releases faster (and for free i might add) from excellent sites such as SCC, SCT etc.
These are the sort of asshats that the MPAA and RIAA need to be hunting down and prosecuting, not some house-wife whos son downloaded some .mp3, what the hell has this world of ours come to.
Local Seeders: 1,390
Local Leechers: 3
