Digital Hive (DH), a well established private torrent tracker, is celebrating its 3rd birthday this week. If you are a member of this tracker, you probably already know the good news – all torrents on the site have been made free leech for one whole week until the 13th of May. If you aren’t a member and is looking forward to get in, there’s even more good news - DH has opened registrations to the public till the 13th as well. Note that this is not a specialized tracker – DH is a general/0day tracker with movies, music, games, software, packs and other general content.
Digital Hive is one of the larger and well established general trackers out there. As of 6/5/2009 it tracks close to 8000 torrents and has an active user base of 15200+ members. DH is a pretty active place and is not a ghost town like some trackers – some of the more popular torrents have more than 150 seeders. Don’t forget to check out the Digital Hive FireFox extension which will enable you search the site right from within FireFox browser.
Speaking of the content on Digital Hive, expect a lot of scene and p2p releases to be available given that this is a general/0day tracker. There are however a lot of unique torrent collections; TV packs and movie packs. DH currently has around 70 movie packs and 175+ TV packs. The screenshot below captures some of the movie packs on Digital Hive:
As we mentioned above Digital Hive signups are now open to the public and will continue to remain open till the 13th of May. Following is quoted from the official news post on DH about free leech and open signups:
