BitTorrent on your TV? It’s on the way. BitTorrent on Tuesday announced BitTorrent Live, a streaming app coming to Apple TV this week, with videos covering topics like news, sports, music, and tech. According to a blog post, the app will expand to Android, iOS, and OS X in June, and Windows later on.
Unlike the BitTorrent protocol for peer-to-peer file sharing, or the BitTorrent Sync app that streams media from your computer to your mobile devices, BitTorrent Live doesn’t rely on files that you already have or that you sniff out on the Internet. You just open BitTorrent Live and start watching content streaming from one of the channels.
