Dutch Public TV Channels are going to use Bittorrent

The Dutch pubic TV broadcasting channels (omroep.nl) are going share TV shows using Bittorrent. The deal was announced earlier today on a workshop on P2P TV. They are going to experiment with the new “social” bittorrent client called Tribler. Johan Pauwelse, one of Triblers developers said that IPTV should move away from the old fashioned way of distributing files and embrace Bittorrent. William Valkenburg manager of omroep.nl said that the “social” aspect of tribler was essential for the deal. Tribler allows people to maintain buddy lists, and recommend files to friends. Tribler also gives recommendation based on your personal downloading history. Source: Torrent Freak Tags: , ,

  1. Just wondering if you'd be interested in bloging / podcasting about Matrixstream's cutting edge video on demand and IPTV Technology ( TV over broadband ). This is a technology that allows the consumer to receive a potential for unlimited VOD / IPTV content up to 1080P in H.264 codec over any broadband connection on a PC Player or set top box for TV ( IMX1020 1080P High definition STB - the world's first 1080P H.264 STB ) If you'd like to see pictures and video's of the this new STB you can go to www.matrixstream.com/presskit .
