BitTorrent: Suprnova movies

Suprnova was the most popular BitTorrent site 2003 - 2004 before it was shutdown. It provided links for downloading movies (films) and television programs via  BitTorrent. Updated February 21, 2006.



During the recent year the filesharing protocol BitTorrent has been established as one of the most popular especially with regard to tv shows and movies. We have tracked BitTorrent during several months and found a surprisingly high number of movies compressed as DivX, Xvid and SVCD. Most of these movies are ripped (copied and compressed) from commercial DVDs.

The dominating site for BitTorrent 2003 - 2004 was Suprnova.org. It was closed in the end of 2004. New sites such as Mininova, The Pirate Bay and many others replaced it and increased the Internet BitTorrent traffic. SuprNova.Org had up to 1 million uniqe visitors every day. In their section for movies there were several 1000 downloadable torrentlinks. Most of the torrentlinks were related to DVD-rips of movies compressed as DivX, Xvid and SVCD. Using a software client for BitTorrent one can download a movie with the help of its torrentlink.

Suprnova had many subsections for movies such as: Action, Adventure, Animation, Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Fantasy, Horror, Kids, Mystery, Non-English, Romance, Sci-Fi och Thriller. Major subsections were: Action, Horror and Comedy.

Exampels of new movies released via Suprnova were: "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story", "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban", "The Day After Tomorrow", "Around the World in 80 Days" och Troy. Most of the movies posted at Suprnova were linked directly to a description at the movie site(database) IMDB.com.

Today there are many alternatives/replacements to Suprnova.org for example: ThePirateBay.org, Mininova.org, MyBitTorrent.com, Torrentz.com, Torrentspy.com and Isohunt.com
