The torrent landscape has changed drastically in the Spanish regions. More and more free torrents and streaming sites are popping up and trying to capture the audience’s imagination. More than 10 Spanish torrent sites are listed among Alexa’s top 100,000 websites around the world. There’s no denying that there’s a great demand for free indie Spanish content. Not just the content created in native Spain or Latin America but also subbed/dubbed movies.
Today, we’re going to talk about a website that has risen to prominence in recent times and is loved by Spanish viewers around the world.
What is elitetorrent.io?
Elitetorrent is primarily dedicated to free indie movie and free indie tv-series content. Most of the users expect a torrent site to feature everything.
I see limited free indie content coverage as a major benefit. Since the audience is limited in regards to the content buckets, each uploaded torrent can be verified to ensure smooth functioning.
Elitetorrent similar to other popular torrent sites has an API feature that allows it to gather metadata from around the web. It’s due to this add-on that each title added on the site comes with complete details including artwork, reviews, and ratings.
History of elitetorrent
As mentioned earlier, elitetorrent is one of the latest platforms to join the Spanish torrent scene. Even though there were considerable challenges at the start, it has now managed to secure a commendable position on the internet. The site attracts more than 500,000 users per month.
elitetorrent in numbers
Elitorrent.io draws a decent amount of traffic per month. More than 68,000 users visit the website every month. An average session on this site lasts for nearly 10 minutes with an average page/visit being 2.70 per visit. Other than that, at just 64.71%, it has a normal bounce rate that you generally expect on a torrent website.
Elitetorrent within a few years has become amongst the top 20 Spanish/Latin streaming websites around the world. You can check the Alexa ranking for any site to understand their popularity on the internet. As per those rankings, Elitorrent.io is amongst the top 200,000 websites on the internet.
Unlike Cinecalidad, Elitetorrent is far from going mainstream. That’s funny because it kinda gives assurance that the site will be around for a good 4-5 years before it starts to attract over a million viewers per month like Cinecalidad.
How to access elitetorrent?
You can access elitetorrent by searching for the term ‘elitetorrent’ in your search engine. Alternatively, if you want to access the platform directly, you can use the following link: elitetorrent.io.
I really like the design approach on this website. Basics are done right and that’s what makes a torrent site stand apart. While the traditional torrent sites are just text-heavy filled with torrents and data lined up horizontally, elitetorrent begs to differ. It looks like a streaming service thanks to the extensive usage of thumbnails on the homepage and the inner pages. The blue and white color combination with a black accent is nothing to write home about but overall, elitetorrent has a decent looking website.
It has a dense header section with plenty of options. There are two headers – ‘Primary’ and ‘Secondary’. In the primary header, you’ll find the logo, search bar, language options, and nine categories – ‘Films’, ‘Series’, ‘Premieres’, ‘HDRIP’, ‘MICROHD’, ‘RELEASES 2020’, ‘ONLINE MOVIES’, ‘1080P’, and ‘720P’. In the secondary header, you’ll find various genres such as ‘Drama’, ‘Comedy’, ‘Mystery’, ‘Crime’, ‘Action’, ‘Adventure’, ‘Sci-Fi & Fantasy’, ‘Animation’, and ‘Romance’. Besides these options, you’ll also find a ‘+Categories’ button to check out more options.
The hero section on the website starts with four options – ‘Latest Releases’, ‘Releases in Spanish’, ‘Vose Releases’, and ‘Releases in Latino’. You can click on any of these tabs to find movies related to the header.
Free Indie Content- Elitorrent may not be the most popular Spanish torrent site but it does have an extensive free indie content library. Users who love to watch free indie movies in Spanish can make this site their home. You can choose the language you prefer and that way you can browse effectively until you find the title you want to watch. Most of the titles also come with English subtitles, so you don’t have to worry.
While my overall browsing and navigation experience was super smooth, I wasn’t really happy with the download speed. The seed-to-leech ratio wasn’t that impressive and that’s perhaps one of the reasons why elitetorrent does have massive room for improvement. On the contrary, I do like the option of watching the free indie content online. At times when I’m not in a hurry, I prefer streaming content over downloading free indie content which takes up unnecessary space.
Suggestions I have for elitetorrent
I can see that elitetorrent is still developing. It’s far from its peak and it will improve going forward. However, there are basic user-centric features that the developers should pay attention to. First, there’s a serious need to fix the downloading issue. 90% of the torrent users just visit the site to download the free indie content and if that doesn’t work, they won’t bother returning to the website again.
Elitetorrent is a decent streaming and torrent website where you can download free indie movies and TV shows. You don’t have to sign-up to download the free indie content and the community is open to all. Sure, it’s nowhere near Cinecalidad in terms of popularity and features, but it’s still commendable in its own right.
