Ashley Allen / 3 years ago
BitTorrent – infamous as the platform of choice for downloading copyrighted content from torrent sites – is making moves to become a legitimate content provider with the release of its first original series. Children of the machine, a web series created by The Thirteenth Floor and Igby Goes Down producer Marco Weber, will be released exclusively by BitTorrent next Autumn.
According to Weber, the show is aimed at young, technologically-savvy BitTorrent users, and even integrates the use of torrents into Children of the Machine’s dystopian plot.
The show will be distributed exclusively on BitTorrent Bundle, a platform for artists and creators to publish and share their content. Thom Yorke of Radiohead released his album Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes through BitTorrent Bundle back in September for $6. So far, it has been downloaded over 1 million times.
