Some of the content will be perfectly free while some will be paid and it will also include ads in some content. But the good thing is all the content will be legal and uploaded by its creators. Also not just music and videos rather the VR content will be supported by this BitTorrent Now app.
Bundled format is being used by BitTorrent in the BitTorrent Now an app that is the users need to either go through a sign in or pay procedure before they can look at the file. Though this app is not using any peer-to-peer technology at the launch but this is temporary as the company is working now on developing a peer-to-peer component.
Creators are provided with enough opportunity to upload their content on YouTube, Facebook etc, while according to BitTorrent the biggest selling point of the creators is no restriction included and they can upload the content everywhere in all format.
