BitTorrent Makes Downloading Torrents Legal

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Feb 27, 2007 10:13 pm

The BitTorrent crew have just launched a new website they call the "BitTorrent Entertainment Network" which will allow people to download stacks of content legally (such as movies, tv episodes, and music videos). Of course in order for it to be legal, one must pay to be able to download the majority of this stuff. In fact, movies are only available on a rental basis at $3.99 for new releases and $2.99 for catalog titles, whilst tv shows and music vids are for keeps at $1.99 each.

 

More info can be sourced regarding the new site at the DailyTech folks.

 


BitTorrent today announced the launch of the BitTorrent Entertainment Network, featuring a comprehensive library of downloadable digital entertainment content from 20th Century Fox, Lions Gate, MTV Networks, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros. and, the latest studio on the bandwagon, MGM. The BitTorrent community can rent movies, purchase television shows and music videos, and even publish and share their own content to be displayed alongside titles from the world's largest studios.

 

"BitTorrent has the infrastructure, technology and established user base to significantly move the needle on digital distribution with quick, easy and affordable delivery," said Thomas Lesinski, President, Paramount Pictures Digital Entertainment. "The final piece of the puzzle is a wide array of content and Paramount is very pleased to be providing a vast selection of filmed entertainment to the site."
