Automatic allows you to set up subscriptions for virtually any content linked in RSS feeds: podcasts, videocasts, torrentcasts... Rule of thumb: if it ends in '-cast', you can get it with Automatic.
Once set up, there's nothing else to do but sit back and wait. Automatic will fetch and deliver the latest content for your subscriptions right to your download folder, so all that's left for you is to find some time to enjoy it.
By far, the most popular application of broadcatching is TV subscriptions. Using preset subscriptions, Automatic now makes it brain-dead easy to catch up on your favorite TV shows. Browse or search the show listing, press 'Add' and you're done! The listing, as well as the show and episode information are all updated with the latest and greatest, doubling as a great mini-guide.
On its own, Automatic will start downloading only new episodes. However, you can set it to start at an earlier date - great for recapping and getting up-to-speed. It'll even provide shows in HD, if available.
