While you can manually visit a bittorrent site to download the latest episode of a TV show, modern bittorrent client with built-in RSS feed reader allows you to automate the download process of your favourite TV shows as soon as the latest episode is available. In this post, you will find the step by step guide on how to automatically download the latest episodes of TV shows as soon as they are available on bittorrent network using uTorrent.
Note: Downloading TV shows can be illegal in some countries. If so, consider moving to another country, download share friendly shows only, or collect the torrents just for fun. Make sure you’ve checked before you proceed.
One of the best bittorrent sources to download TV shows is EZTV. RSS feed for TV shows available on EZTV is available at EZRSS. This guide should works with latest uTorrent. The uTorrent version that I use in this guide is uTorrent 2.0 beta.
1. First of all, you will need to find the RSS feed for the TV show that you want to download. In this guide, I will take ‘Top Gear’ as the example. To find the RSS feed for ‘Top Gear’, go to EZRSS website and look for ‘Top Gear’  in the shows list. Click on ‘Top Gear’ and you will be redirected to the ‘Top Gear’ episode list.
2. Next, we will add the RSS feed URL for ‘Top Gear’ in uTorrent.

µTP (uTP) or micro Transport Protocol is a protocol used by bittorrent client. This protocol aims to reduce latency and maximize bandwidth when the latency is not excessive. While normal bittorrent traffic uses Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) to transfer data, bittorrent client that supports uTP is able to transfer data between clients using User Datagram Protocol (UDP). uTP is supposed to improve bittorrent traffic (uTP can possibly avoid traffic shaping) and you should see improvements in your bittorrent download/upload speed when most of the peers use uTP. So far uTP is used by uTorrent and official bittorrent client.
The bt.transp_disposition value will let you control how uTorrent uses normal TCP or uTP for data transportation. The bt.transp_disposition value is interpreted as a bit field and you probably need to learn binary to understand it. As this post is written, the latest uTorrent 2.0 beta build 16666 accepts these values:
- 1 – allows uTorrent to attempt outgoing TCP connections
- 2 – allows uTorrent to attempt outgoing uTP connections
- 4 – allows uTorrent to accept incoming TCP connections
- 8 – allows uTorrent to accept incoming uTP connections
- 16 – tells uTorrent to use the new uTP header. This is an improved communication header, but is not backwards compatible with clients that do not understand it.
Basically, these values can be added together in order to enable the options.

uTorrent is one of the popular bittorrent client. The best feature of uTorrent is it is a very small bittorrent client but contains most of the features in other bittorrent client. One of the best feature is WebUI (web-based user interface). In this post, you will find out on how to set up your uTorrent installation to enable the WebUI interface and let you control your uTorrent via web browser from anywhere. This feature is very useful if you need to control your uTorrent when you’re not at home, or control your uTorrent if you don’t like to use Windows’s Remote Desktop Connection or VNC for your server.
Setting Up uTorrent WebUI
1. In this post, I will use the latest uTorrent 1.9 alpha 14659 and uTorrent WebUI v0.361. You can download the uTorrent 1.9 alpha here and WebUI here. Please take note that the alpha (and beta) version of uTorrent is not suitable for general use and may contains instability issues. You can always use the stable version of uTorrent.
2. Download and install uTorrent. Download uTorrent WebUI. Your WebUI file name will be something like webui.<numbers>.zip. Rename the WebUI file to webui.zip.

Is the latest uTorrent, 1.8 (still in alpha version) can bypass TMNet traffic shaping?
In the test, I run the same torrent simultaneously using the alpha version of uTorrent and Halite. The torrent is good seeded actually. And both get nice speed!
You can download the alpha version of uTorrent here.
