BitTorrent is launching its own streaming news channel

BitTorrent News is a live-streaming TV news network that will be featured on BitTorrent Live starting July 18th. For news and sports, time is of the essence. BitTorrent News will be the destination for an informed, independent voice on the news in real-time as news breaks. BitTorrent News has a distinct advantage when scaling rapidly to large audiences in real-time without the need for expensive pre-provisioning, a near impossible feat during a rapidly developing news situation.

BitTorrent Live, the platform this news channel will run on, was only announced a month ago and is only out on the Apple TV (for the moment). I’ve not had a chance to check it out but I think I’ll give it a shot and see what it’s like, especially once the news channel comes online.
