With a quarter billion active users a month BitTorrent is without a doubt the most used file-sharing platform.
The vast majority of these BitTorrent users download video files, but despite these staggering statistics it can still be quite cumbersome to play downloaded files on the old-fashioned TV.
The first ever certified Android-powered BitTorrent box aims to change this. After the initial December launch was delayed, the BBK BitTorrent box officially goes up for sale today.
While we have seen devices that support BitTorrent downloads before, this is the first one that can can also stream content downloaded through uTorrent and BitTorrent clients on the local network.
This means that users can play content downloaded by uTorrent and BitTorrent directly on their TV. Below is a screenshot of the user interface, displaying the various BitTorrent clients the device can connect to wirelessly.
Since the device supports DLNA, users can also access other media libraries including the one from rival BitTorrent client Vuze and Apple’s iTunes.
In addition to playing content downloaded by other clients, the BitTorrent box itself also comes with BitTorrent support. Users are able to add torrent files through the built-in web browser or load torrent files from a USB drive.
The BitTorrent box then takes care of the downloading and the file can be played instantly when the download is finished.
Another upside of the BitTorrent box is that it’s running on Android, giving users access to thousands of applications in the Android market. This includes various VPN applications for those who value their privacy.
The BBK BitTorrent box is up for sale now at just under 90 euros and currently ships to European countries only. This may change in the near future.

One of the many problems with the “guilty until proven innocent”
approach to tackling unauthorized filesharing is that it’s not clear
exactly who should get the punishment. For example, in France, we saw
not for infringement that he had committed, but something his then-wife
had done and even admitted. And it’s not just spousal activity that is
problematic, as TorrentFreak reports in this interesting case from Germany:

ts to the city’s titular Gangnam district. “);
The South Korean capital’s tourism ministry has released a video promoting the Gangnam district – the richest and most developed area of the city. The clip already scooped around 400,000 views on YouTube, the Daily Telegraph reported.“What’s Gangnam?” the video asks. Most foreigners do not know what Gangnam means, and think the word translates to ‘crazy’ or ‘fun.’ Seoul’s Gangnam district, south of the city’s Han River, is the upmarket neighborhood featured as the backdrop in PSY’s original video. The video focuses on attractions in the prestigious area, like shopping, entertainment and culture. The district, however, has never been a popular tourist spot. Time Out described the neighborhood as “far less visited than other parts of the city.” PSY’s record-breaking video beat Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’ on YouTube as the most-watched clip ever. Since its release in August, it’s been viewed over 900 million time. ‘Gangnam Style’ also holds the Guinness World Record for the song with the most ‘likes’ ever.printscreen from youtube video by user whatisgangnamstyle …
