Android/Web: BitTorrent has launched a new app for streaming media, BitTorrent Now. The app works something like a Netflix and Spotify combo by streaming both video and audio, but without label backing, the selection's a bit limited. Let's get this out of the way first, BitTorrent Now is not about piracy. It doesn't work like an app like Popcorn Time, which means you're not going to find the vast selection of music available as torrents. Instead, everything on BitTorrent Now is uploaded by its creator. Some of its free, some of it requires an email address, some of it requires payment. Right now, it's a lot of deep cuts from bands and video producers that most people haven't heard of. Still, if you're really into independent media, it's worth a look to see what's on here. The web version and Android version are both up and running now, with iOS apps on the way shortly.
