Windows only: TVTrigger is like a TV guide for your desktop—if, in addition to keeping you up to date on your favourite shows, that guide also automatically found and downloaded the latest torrent of said show as soon as it's released.
(Click the image above for a closer look.) In concept, it's pretty simple. TVTrigger lets you choose favourite shows—and then automatically downloads the latest for you as soon as its available.
We've seen similar tools (like TED) before, but TVTrigger takes things a step further. It's got full episode lists, cast lists, plot synopses, can play trailers of episodes, and fully integrates with BitTorrent searches and downloads. Although TVTrigger has a built-in BitTorrent client, you can choose to open torrent files with your preferred BitTorrent client if you don't want TVTrigger handling your downloads.
It's a little rough around the edges, but TVTrigger would probably feel a whole lot friendlier for beginners than the normal BitTorrent procedure. TVTrigger is a free download, Windows only.
