Super interesting concept. Wow.

Welcome aboard, @maxstoller! This could be used for several different use cases. What do you use it for, Max?
I use it to (illegally) download TV shows. The best part is, it'll serve you a file instantly if it has already been downloaded by another user -- which is generally the case for popular TV series. Gone are the days of torrenting with a desktop client on a throttled TWC connection.

Preach it, @maxstoller

How does legality shake out on this? Torrenting illegal content usually involves a VPN sproof, etc - seems in this case that risk is transferred to put.io? cc @maxstoller

Wow. Just went home to different computer and two files (homeland episodes) are ready and waiting to watch. Awesome.

I have been using Put.io for years now and it's literally the single product I pay for and could not live without.
Derek Shanahan
@stefanobernardi do you feel it's 'safe'? i'm fully willing to ditch anonymous vpn service payments for something like this if it once-removes my liability.
Stefano Bernardi
@dshan I doubt it removes your liability as there's a trace of what you download. But the internet provider doesn't know, and so unless the FBI goes and seizes their servers and tracks you down, you should be good to go.

I have no idea how they've not been shut down yet; they must be hosting so much illegal content :) basically if someone else has already downloaded the torrent before you, it "downloads" instantly. So basically it makes all torrents a super fast http download. Or you can stream it, if it's a video. I have been paying for it for about 3 years now.

Been using it for over 4 years now and I love it. Wait till you see the new design they have been working on.
David Myers
I've been using this daily for over a year now, and absolutely love it. I stream off of my iPad to Apple TV and it works like a charm.

The cloud storage service with a certain gravity

What we are not

We are not a backup or syncing service like Dropbox or Google Drive where you upload your own stuff for safekeeping. We are also not a cyber-locker where you can upload something and make it available to the whole public.

What we are

We fetch files from many public places at very high speeds, then put them into your digital stash. We are more like the remote version of your "/downloads" directory, but we do the downloading for you.
