Torrent Butler – cool movie finder serves up torrents with style

Mmm..not sure how long this puppy is going to stay alive, even if they do say correctly that it is just a torrent search engine, but it’s an interesting example of just how easy it would be for the movie industry to start up a really compelling service, earn money and satisfy everyone’s need for instant gratification. Are you listening RIAA? Sigh, of course not.

Torrent Butler is a fancy pants graphical menu and movie information catalogue layered on top of a torrent finder search engine. Click on a movie poster and you’re taken to a useful page with information about the film and an embedded YouTube trailer. Click on the the Torrents button and presto, there’s a handy list of .torrent files for you to use to download instantly (or at least as instantly as BitTorrent allows). The links lead to standard torrent or magnet links out on the Net from all the usual suspects.

Now, this is not a great thing for the movie business as it stands, but imagine it properly licensed and integrated with a simple monthly subscription plan, with or without monthly download limits set according to price. Doesn’t that sound like something worth paying for? Of course it does, and people, probably lots, would pay. Ah well, dreams are nice.

    Nowadays there are a lot of good torrent search sites. I used to download from http://www.torrentoff.com. Torrent off is free, fast and easy to use torrent site. It doesn't require registration.
