Since my wife and I moved to town in June, we didn’t bother getting TV here. We have a TV, but it’s just hooked up to my computer. We’ve been talking about getting a satellite reciever, so we can sit on the couch and zap through 3 zillion channels to find out nothing interesting is on, or just watch 0.001% of all the available channels, so no TV for now.
Like I said, ted.. ted is an awesome little, lightweight program that sits in your system tray, waiting for new episodes of your favorite TV-show to come out on a bittorrent network. When it finds a new episode, it opens up your favorite torrent-client and downloads that episode. It comes with a list of preset popular TV-shows, so all you have to do is browse. If there’s a show missing, you can easily add it to the list.
Right now I’m monitoring: Heroes, Bones, Flashpoint, NCIS, Numb3rs and Top Gear.
The only downside of ted is that you can’t download sports-events. I’d like to download formula 1 races as soon as they are available. Maybe in the next version?
