BitTorrent Launches a Virtual MVPD

BitTorrent is diving deeper into the world of legitimate video services with a new live multichannel TV service that is being delivered over-the-top using its peer-to-peer platform and will initially feature content from programing partners such as AWE, One World Sports, and Newsmax.
