BitTorrent Inks Deals With 20 TV Set Makers | C2M : veille Digital Media |

Consumers using Internet-connected TV sets from some 20 manufacturers will soon be able to stream video content -- including both legal and illegal material -- downloaded via embedded BitTorrent software, with the click of a remote.


BitTorrent has reached deals with 20 consumer-electronics manufacturers, according to CEO Eric Klinker. He declined to identify them.


Most of BitTorrent’s deals are for TV models that will launch -- as early as this holiday season -- in Europe and Asia, Klinker said.
