Fresh, original videos will make their entrance only on the organization’s Bundle service, where they will be available for one to two months. Afterwards, BitTorrent will give access to other webcasting channels.
CEO Eric Klinker reported:
“This landmark deal with Marco (Weber, CEO of Rapid Eye Studios) is a major milestone for us and an aggressive expansion into the media space for BitTorrent, Inc. Expanding into the world of original content is a move that makes us a serious player in the media business, and takes us another step closer toward our goal: creating a sustainable digital future for creators of all kinds.”
BitTorrent advertised its first venture a year ago. ‘Children of the Machine’ is scheduled to start shooting in a couple of months and dispatch as a Bundle before the year is over.
The initial season—eight one hour episodes signed by Weber and Jeff Stockwell—will be free with an advertiser’s backed version. A premium adaptation of the arrangement will be offered for $9.95. However, BitTorrent did not give insights about what advantages that will give.

According to Content Officer Matt Mason the platform’s public is bigger than that of all the aforementioned platforms combined.
