BitTorrent to come up with all new legal music streaming service
A leading software company BitTorrent is launching a new legal music streaming service in the form of a revamped and re-branded version of its Bundle legal music download platform. The company now notably showcases the work of upcoming artists.
The all new service offers on-demand streaming of music and videos via a mobile application. Like Spotify and other applications of the kind, it is also likely to create playlists and follow favorite artists for notice and updates. BitTorrent now differs from the big names of the business in terms of content, with a catalog of music and videos mostly from independent artists, relatively unknown to the general public. Users can also purchase the content at any time. The platform is currently financed by advertising.
Originally, BitTorrent Bundle was a music download site offering new content from artists either for free or for a few dollars. Madonna, Lady Gaga, De La Soul, Moby and Thom Yorke (Radiohead) notably released exclusive content via the platform.
Over the years BitTorrent has developed all kinds of new services which includes a substitute browser (Maelstrom), an instant messenger (Bleep) and a file-sharing platform (Shoot). The BitTorrent now will be the first of all as, a website and Android app, with versions for iOS and Apple TV in the pipeline.
