ZbigZ is a Canadian based torrenting company that launched in 2012. Everything works online and there is no requirement to download anything. They have a mobile application that is supported by Android.
The first impression of Zbigz is rather boring. The website does not give much information right away and you have to wait for the slider for more information. It is not easily navigable and rather confusing. Where is the pricing option? Where are all its features? The website is absolutely horribly organized.
How does it work?
You can use some of Zbigz’s features without registration but to get all the features you will have to fill out a form. Just like any other cloud torrent downloader, you copy and paste the torrent link for it to be downloaded. Some of the features include online streaming as you can directly stream files without downloading.
Download speed was ok, it kept up with its competitors and downloaded a 3gb movie in about 6 minutes.
Zbigz has SSL, and HTTPS encryption integrated into their system, so this makes sure that any data sent is encrypted. There is no integrated antivirus so you have to be careful with some things you might download. All downloads are anonymous and no IP is ever shown. There is no antivirus integration, so be careful with what you download.
Plans and pricing
Zbigz offers 4 plans for its users with payments options of Bitcoin, Paypal, SMS and more through resellers.
The free plan expires after a few days and allows you to download 1gb file size.
1 Month Premium has unlimited speed, storage, file size, bandwidth and HTTPS protocol. Price is $9.9
3 Month Premium has all the same features as the one month for $24.
6 Month Premium has the same features and is for $48.
1 Year Premium is for $84 also with the same features.
Basically, each plan has the same features and options, time is the only thing that has changed.
I wanted to stop using the service after one week, so I contacted support for a refund. They took 3 days to get back to me, which is super slow. Also, they did not want to give a refund and said they had no money back guarantee. They terminated the account and I got no money back.
Zbigz is very hard to navigate at the beginning. It is hard to find the prices, features, etc. The site is badly designed and needs a major upgrade. The system itself works fine. There are many payment options. Support was slow in getting back to me, which is always worrisome. If Zbigz would fix some of these problems, it would move up in the rankings. Zbigz falls to number 6 in our rankings.
