BitTorrent to launch TV news service at Republican Convention

Just in time for the Republican Convention, BitTorrent, on July 18th, will launch a TV news network that you can watch on iOS and Android devices, on the web and — soon — Apple TV.

BitTorrent News, according to a statement, will use “superior data and tools and the Silicon Valley ethos of lean startup to build a nimble news organization that will learn quickly from user behavior.” Erik Schwartz, Vice President of Media for BitTorrent said that “Television news has been stagnating for some time. It’s having trouble appealing to a generation that grew up online. We’re building BitTorrent News to solve that problem.”
