Hi guys,Just a general question which has more than likely been asked many times.
What do the "torrent' family generally download.
The reson I ake is that most tv shows.clips.trailers are easily avaliable without using torrents.
This being the case,apart form distros etc,that would leave only one big thing movies?


Is this the case do you think?

From my experience with Torrents.

If it can go onto a computer, you can find a torrent for it and download it.
Almost no exceptions (although older stuff is sometimes tricky to find.)
