Warner Brothers To Use BitTorrent

Warner Brothers is to start selling film downloads via the internet using the same technology once blamed for helping people swap illegal copies.

The Hollywood studio has reached a deal with the web company BitTorrent, which uses peer-to-peer technology to allow the quick distribution of large files.

Warner says users will be able to buy downloads of films and TV shows on the same day they become available on DVD.

Pricing for a feature film will be about the same as the DVD release.

The cost of a television show could be as low as a dollar.
