PBS Partners With BitTorrent for Online Outreach

BitTorrent Entertainment Network has made PBS programming available for purchase and download on BitTorrent’s content distribution platform.

PBS titles now available include primetime programs such as “History Detectives,” “NOVA,” and “Scientific American Frontiers;” PBS Kids programs such as “Caillou” and “Teletubbies;” as well as programming from selected local PBS stations.

“We are thrilled to be working with BitTorrent and its unique distribution platform to expand the reach of public television’s content, including programming from some of our local PBS stations,” said Andrew Russell, senior vice president of PBS Ventures.

PBS joins other content partners, including 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate, MTV Networks, MGM, Paramount and Warner Bros, who use BitTorrent’s platform to provide films, TV shows and music videos direct to consumers.
