Half of All BitTorrent Downloads are Television Shows

Despite the apparent popularity of getting the latest Windows and Photoshop versions off of BitTorrent, a new pie chart based on download statistics from torrent tracker Mininova shows that people are downloading far more than just that. Out of all the .torrent downloads that happened in the past two year, caught by Mininova, roughly half of them were television shows. The rest of the downloads break into what users would expect: games, movies, software, and "other". For an intrepid analysis of what exactly all this means, please follow the source link. Otherwise, do enjoy the pie graph.

I hated it when SKY got the rights to some of the shows - i don't have sky nor will ever intend to pay a ridiculous amount of money to watch repeat of shows every day, i'd rather stick with my freeview. I wished sky would just eff off sometimes

Tbh m8 for what a tv liecence costs nowadays i think you should get more decent channels like sky because the bbc and freeview ones suck. I have sky and yes they charge too much and you get repeats but look at the amount of channels you get for your money theres always somthing to watch repeats or not.Its alot better than the bbc.
