Users have long been dreaming of streaming the films they have downloaded directly to their TV. Now it all came true with BitTorrent’s new device called BBK Box. It allows users to watch movies, wirelessly, via the most popular BitTorrent application in the world – uTorrent.
The newly introduced device runs Android OS and combines technology from both uTorrent and the BitTorrent applications. Talking about adaptability, the device supports DLNA, which means that users are able to play content from iTunes and Vuze on their TV set. In addition, they can control the device via the EShare remote control client, which is compatible with Android, Apple mobile phones and tablets.
As for the file management, the device comes with a built-in Internet browser which allows users to add torrent files. Otherwise, they are able to use USB drive, SD card, and even an external hard drive. The new magic box supports virtually all formats. In the meantime, the benefits of being compatible with Android are the thousand apps which can be found in the Android Market (it also allows installing VPN applications).
Finally, the device comes with such pre-installed applications as Google Play Market, Google Search, Web Browser, Clock, DVB Player, E-mail, File Browser, and a Music Player, featuring an internal memory of 55MB. Its price is below 90 Euros and not dollars because it is currently only sold in Europe.
BitTorrent's official site claims that the device has a lot of useful features, including built-in Wi-Fi which allows users to enjoy their connected media wirelessly. The box also provides easy connectivity with USB 2.0 and SD card connections and supports playback of media content from external removable storage. Users can make use of DLNA PC Media Link to browse PC and home network content, while the box can play multiple video formats from external hard disk or thumbdrive.

|Woot! This just took file-sharing to another new level!|
|UTORRENT's ,"STRICTLY ABOUT THE $$$$";,shite!thery're jus a HUGHE INTERNET MARKETING SITE;man,they're jus cashing in on "us"|
,good one ,SaM...thx bro....
|@2 Wtf are you talking about...|
|looking very good|
|What is this nonsense? All you need is a HDMI cable and a mouse to click "play".|
|Don't really understand the point with all these devices you need to buy to do this and stream that on your TV. I just have a really good PC hooked up to my large LCD TV, it does everything, case closed. Why would I buy Apple TV, Google TV, Boxee, this box and that box...? It's all bullocks... I would however want to know how I can create a visually pleasing library (apple iTunes cover flow like with thumbnails) that shows ALL the movies, tv shows and music albums I have on ALL of my drives, so I can choose and watch them / listen to them with ease and a mouse's click. Please don't tell me I need to buy another fcukn box for that..surely there must be some good software for that? Something like a Picasa for Torrents? Oh crap, I just gave someone an idea.. oh well, I just wait a 4 weeks and then pay him $29.99 for it, or I can wait 5 weeks and get it for free on ET.|

|@2 is correct it is as bad as vuze anymore with all the bloatware - i now use tixati - love it.|
also i use Wild Media Server, well worth the $20. All my files stream to my sony bluray. I like jriver media center, but only streams certain video formats, like mpeg or mov, not avi or xvid etc.
only other alternative is to set up HTPC directly to TV like @6 did. costs money but is the way to go.
