UK broadband provider NTL has teamed up with BitTorrent and Cachelogic to trial ultra high-speed, legal video downloads in the UK.
The companies have said that the download service will feature a large variety of licensed video content including popular movies, music videos and television programs.
Ashwin Navin, president of BitTorrent, said, As the world’s leading P2P application, we are engaging artists and ISPs to build a consumer-friendly ecosystem around our protocol that allows all involved to benefit from P2P. We are pleased to announce our work with ntl and CacheLogic, as both entities share our vision for the future of content distribution.
The trial is expected to start in April 2006.
