BitTorrent brings its free Live streaming service to Android

The app requires a free login to begin watching, and the service utilizes BitTorrent’s patented peer-to-peer live streaming protocol to eliminate latency issues. As the company explains in a blog post, “BitTorrent Live allows for large audiences to view live video with sub 10-second latency and without the need for an expensive CDN or pre-provisioning. With BitTorrent Live, every viewer is also a broadcaster. This allows the video stream to remain strong and for the broadcast to be as scalable as traditional Over-the-Air TV.” – Michael Simon, PCWorld
