Star World launches weekend property 'Torrentz'

STAR Networks’ English GEC, Star World, announced the launch of its new weekend property- ‘Torrentz’ that showcases the freshest and best shows from Hollywood. Viewers can now enjoy the experience from February 2011 with the launch of three popular shows Good Guys, Walking Dead and Detroit 187 under this property.

‘Torrentz’ is a unique initiative by the channel to curb piracy and relieve viewers from the inconvenience of downloading from the internet. Downloading from the net apart from being piracy is a time consuming process and frustrating for the viewers. By making available some of its latest shows fresh from Hollywood, the channel hopes that its viewers will enjoy the show’s advantage and not waste their time and energy in the inconvenient process of internet download.

Torrentz shows will be telecast on the weekends giving the viewers an opportunity to set a date with some of the most gripping and entertaining shows from their favorite channel, Star World, as and when they get launched globally. To begin with viewers can enjoy the channel’s offering of shows like Good Guys, Walking Dead and Detroit 187 from February 12 and 13, 2011 and experience the Torrentz advantage only available with Star World.
