The recent commercial claimed that the future is bright, and it seems now that the future is an online TV sets. 20 TV manufacturers have concluded a deal with BitTorrent in order to let their users stream both legal and illegal video files, all at the push of a remote controller button.
BitTorrent’s Chief Executive Officer, Eric Klinker, confirmed that the company closed a deal with a least 20 TV makers. As such, the new TV sets will be made compatible with BitTorrent and can be released as soon as this holiday season throughout Europe and Asia. However, users may not see them as much in the United States, because its market already has TV manufacturers signed with such streaming services as Netflix and Hulu.
BitTorrent also emphasized that there are around 2,000,000 titles of legitimate content found on its networks, including books, films, and music, but cannot estimate the amount of illegal content available there. It’s like asking Google how much pornography there is online.
Last year a blog post announced that BitTorrent Inc. has signed a deal with Vestel – a Turkish TV manufacturer. Earlier, BitTorrent’s applications accounted for 40% of the overall Internet traffic, but once the portals such as Netflix or Hulu kick-started, this figure started to decline. Experts predict that BitTorrent’s traffic share will decrease to 10% in 2 years.
Anyway, internet users are still hyped about the news, as well as the industry experts. Some of them even claim that this may be the best Christmas gift ever. Still, it is unclear whether this deal will increase piracy or open new doors towards legal revenues.

|I already stream to my TV, it's called DLNA, it's not new tech vuze has DLNA built in. All you do is if the TV can hookup to the network somehow (already has to be done for netflix or anything like it) then stream to the TV from the local network. I thought TVs in EU and Asia had wireless or wire capabilities? I know most FTA Sat boxes have it for sure.|
|DLNA in Vuze makes it easier to stream content to Connected TVs from all the major manufacturers, as well as most consoles and set-top boxes. Vuze already does a stellar job of transcoding downloads for iPhone, iPod, Apple TV, PS3, and Xbox 360, and this new version expands that even further. Like before, all you need to do is drag and drop the file to the device you want and it will start streaming.|
|you have to have the file first which is quite different to the proposed Bit torrent live screamer UDP idea which I don`t as yet advocate since like Antsp2p requires several 1000 people to be sharing the file to start with and not proven in real time as yet and even when it is security will have to be re-evaluated before I am satisfied it is secure given the screamer protocol requires numerically ordered UDP packets and at a high rate for real time streaming.|
|The impossible can be done ,miracles take a little longer !!!|
|hmmm,will said manufacturers be putting DHT , portforwarding and blocklist abilities into the bit torrent extension as without doing so you may as well just download on your PC and stream to your xbox,tv,playstation etc with Azureus DLNA and keep the security already in situ,if the security is not installed you may as well get the noose ready|
|I am a U.S. citizen and do not live in the U.S.. I pay for Zulu and Play On and whatever else.|
However, they have licensing issues which will not allow anyone outside of the U.S. to watch.
How STUPID is that..??? So I had to get fiber and a VPN Proxy setup to un-fu*k what the unjust
law decided was fair to good paying consumers. All the current digital TV deals are to regionalized
to be of any use... Now I pay for the TV I hardly get to use while I am forced to download what
I should get for free anyway... Keep the commercials America!
