BitTorrent, a renowned software company has launched BitTorrent Now app, offering an on demand streaming of video and music—largely from independent artists rather than the popular ones, for free. However, the artist has an option to make their content free or paid.

‘One of the things that makes me mad optimistic about creativity as a whole, is that some of the most streamed and most downloaded projects are from independent collectives,’ said Straith Schreder, bittorrent's VP of creative initiatives.

 

Like any other streaming app, BitTorrent is used by browsing the content of your choice—to watch or listen to, and then clicking onto the play button. Besides streaming videos and music, the app will also support streaming of VR content.

‘Prescriptive. It must be music. It must be video. We want to keep that deliberately open so creators can experiment, to create and break what we think of art online as a whole,’ Schreder added.

For now, the app is available on for Android users on Google Play Store. But, the company has said that the app will soon be launched on iOS and Apple TV as well.
