Matt and Adam recently told me about a little website that had loads of UK TV programs to download via torrents.
Their policy is that they do not show anything is commercially available on DVD, VHS etc which seems fair enough.
The only problem is they only allow a certain number or users (30,000 I think). They are constantly kicking out inactive users and leechers so you just have to wait until the signup page shows the registration form. However UKNova don’t tell you this, and just give you a blank page instead, which is annoying so I wrote a script to signup for you!
Let me know how you get on! If you want to see a tutorial on how this script was written, along with source it is on geekstuff here
