BitTorrent breaks into news

BitTorrent is seemingly looking to reinvent itself as an online TV news network.

The file-sharing software maker says it will officially launch BitTorrent News on July 18 at the Republican National Convention.

BitTorrent believes that its technical background will give it the advantage over traditional TV broadcasters in distributing breaking news to the masses.

"BitTorrent News has a distinct advantage when scaling rapidly to large audiences in real-time without the need for expensive pre-provisioning, a near impossible feat during a rapidly developing news situation," BitTorrent said. ®
