BitTorrent starts producing original TV shows in a quest to reform its image

Ian Paul | Feb. 12, 2015
BitTorrent is getting serious about transforming the BitTorrent protocol into a serious distribution method for legal media.

BitTorrent's 170 million users statistic is based on the number of monthly active users for the company's two BitTorrent file-sharing apps-BitTorrent and uTorrent-and is not about how many people regularly download the company's content bundles. Nevertheless, there's no doubt that BitTorrent Bundles are popular too. In June, the company announced its (mostly free) bundles of music and video content had already racked up 100 million downloads.

BitTorrent has yet to announce plans for future Originals titles but says it will have more news in the coming months.

This article was updated on 2/11/15 at 11:24 AM PST to clarify BitTorrent Inc.'s user statistics.
