BitTorrent Introduces Free Streaming Service

BitTorrent's new service is more artist-focused

BitTorrent Now is a new ad-supported mobile streaming service created with an open dialogue as to what artists and fans are looking for out of a such a service.

The free streaming resource is currently available on Android and the web with the iOS version coming shortly. Engagement and transparency seem to be two key attributes in the construction of the service.

There’s incentive for artists to get involved too, as BitTorrent says creators will be keeping 70% of streaming ad revenue after administrative costs – much higher margins than the competition.

Thom Yorke of Radiohead, Moby and Lady Gaga and are just a few of the artists to release exclusive content on the platform thus far.
