Netflix Looking for BitTorrent Expert

Netflix Looking for BitTorrent Expert

The company seems to be seriously considering using peer-to-peer networks for video streaming. Industry observers believe that the service was inspired by Popcorn Time. Anyway, Netflix is currently inviting applications from specialists with BitTorrent experience to fill the position of Senior Software Engineer to realize the ambitious project.


At the moment, Netflix moves massive amounts of data – according to some estimations, it consumes over 30% of all Internet traffic in North America during peak hours. Of course, data use is quite costly for Netflix and sometimes causes network congestion and stream buffering. The idea is that P2P-powered streaming could solve these problems.

Netflix is going to hire a Senior Software Engineer, and the job description reveals its P2P-streaming plans. The new employee will be tasked with leading the entire project – from design and architecture phase to implementation, testing, and final evaluation.

The company also told its shareholders that it considers the Popcorn Time app a serious threat to its services. It seems that Netflix decided to take advantage of BitTorrent technology for legal distribution. Indeed, moving to P2P-assisted streaming would be a logical step – for example, it will allow to stream videos in a higher quality at a cheaper price.

In the meantime, BitTorrent inventor appreciated the Netflix idea to use P2P technology, because BitTorrent-powered solutions are superior to Netflix’s video quality. Still, it is too early to talk about the certain solutions from Netflix – even despite the job posting, it remain unclear whether a move to P2P-powered streaming will ever happen.

Beolab1700 avatarSo what happens when ISP's do their thing when speed blocking peer to peer traffic? lol

Embolism avatar@1 it seems so simple to allow porting torrents through a specific port designated to netflix torrents which known to ISP`s will not be limited for netflix torrents (but how long before we find the port they are using and all bypass the speed blocks,lol). (:^D)

Embolism avatarit must be said that if torrents became legitimised by Netflix or others it hopefully will reduce the price to an amount that makes getting a decent watchable film realistic fiscally and an end to the need for subsequent fees for VPN`s and other services required to protect our anonymity,it will not end piracy absolutely but will alleviate the need to pirate films and decriminalise p2p to a greater degree which must be a good thing in the real world,maybe.

eNdEmiOn avatarI don't see how this is supposed to work. Netflix watchers don't have the media saved locally so how are they going to share it? Are they going to drop the price of their service for people willing to sacrifice their upload capacity? Or does this commercial company really think people are ok with them using their bandwidth for free? Are they even going to let you chose? If not especially ADSL type connections potentially get slowed down for others internet traffic or in the worst case scenario get stalled all together.

It's a nice idea but lets face it p2p isn't suited for commercial services.

bubanee avatarBasically they need to design a On demand client which streams at call fro 0% to 100% in order with a pause button at least. using p2p where basically they will select 1000 users or so with Fast speed and Unlimited bandwidth and pay them next to nothing really.. Quick Sign me up! lol i got 1g speed LOL
