CES 2012: BitTorrent on your TV!

1:54 /

BitTorrent revealed four companies based in Europe, Russia, and Asia that have prepared new hardware running BitTorrent. Seth Rosenblatt takes a First Look.

Hi, I'm Seth Rosenblatt for CNET, and tonight at Pepcom at CES 2012 I'm showing you BitTorrent on your hardware devices. It's kind of crazy but it's true, you can now get... or soon you can get your BitTorrent on devices like TVs, set top boxes, Blu Ray players, media players. It's really quite incredible as long as you live in Europe or Asia... These devices won't be available in America anytime soon at least as far as we've been told. It's kind of devices that you can get them on such as TVs, allow you to stream your BitTorrent content directly to the TV but you can also use some of them as torrent managers which is really incredible for a very super large... home movie files, photos, even personal documents, you can share very easily back and forth. There's also a limited range of a free exclusive content such as TEDTalks, Khan Academy... independent movies that film makers have made available for free to... to the public. Navigating BitTorrent on your devices such as TVs and Blu Rays and set top boxes and media players is actually quite easy. Use a standard remote control. Up, down, left, right. Use the okay button. There are 3 rows of channels presented. You have your personal channels. You have premium content which is all free content that has been licensed from the content owners and you've got an all content where you can easily access your most recent torrents. The first OEM hardware that will be available with BitTorrent that has been BitTorrent certified will be sometime Q1. So this is gonna happen very quickly in 2012. For CNET at CES Pepcom, I am Seth Rosenblatt.
