The team behind uTorrent is currently working on releasing a paid version of their BitTorrent client that enables users to convert videos and transfer files to external devices. Dubbed 'uTorrent Plus', the extended uTorrent client will be released to the public this coming fall. uTorrent's parent company BitTorrent Inc. hopes the Plus version will bring in some extra revenue, but considering the target audience, it is expected to 'suffer' from piracy too.
uTorrent has close to 100 million active users each and every month, making them the most-used BitTorrent client. The paid version of uTorrent will extend the functionality of the current program, one of the key features being the ability to convert videos and transfer files to external devices such as iPods and PSPs. Jordy Berson, Director of Product Management for uTorrent has said that no price has been set for uTorrent Plus right now.
