BitTorrent comes to Apple TV through a live news app

OnAir Live Developers has released OTT News, an app for Apple TV (Android and iOS too) that uses BitTorrent Live’s peer-to-peer streaming to cover the US election both in real-time and through pre-recorded clips. It’s not as lavishly produced as the coverage from big TV networks, but that’s part of the point — the technology lets a small outfit stream to your devices without expensive servers and bandwidth. It opens the door to live living room video from more than just the usual suspects. – Jon Fingas, Engadget
