Torrents are one of the easiest ways to download and watch the latest TV series and movies that are not available locally. Since the last 15 years, p2p networks have become one of the biggest communities in the world, sharing content across the globe and all of that is possible because of torrent software.
What is a torrent software?
A torrent software or torrent client is an application that helps your PC become a part of a swarm that shares and downloads data from the network. A torrent file is a small data file which has the address and key to access the video or audio file on the p2p network. Download the torrent file or a magnet link and open it with a torrent software to download the video/audio file. Due to the nature of p2p (peer-to-peer) network, torrent downloads are extremely fast.
