BitTorrent to launch premium ”Torrent Plus BitTorrent has said today that they will release a premium version of the popular ”Torrent client, dubbed ”Torrent Plus.
The company did not say how much they will charge for the torrent client, but did say it would not supplant the free offering, which will continue to see the "same level of commitment and development" as it does currently.

Not all of the details are clear yet, but BT says Plus is built for those that need a "single solution" for finding content on the web, and playing it on any number of devices.

”Torrent, in its free variation, is now up to version 3.0, which added over 20 new features. BitTorrent and ”Torrent have 100 million monthly users.

Perhaps a VPN service built into the premium version....Whatever the case, it better be good if they want people to BUY it.

so true, charge money for a client that is used to get free content. it will be cracked if people are (un)willing to pay for the app.

The difference might be that some material will sit on a dedicated server like newsbins & all kinds of SSL encryption will be used. Otherwise I don't see this being of any other worthwhile use. It's just another P2P with little else to offer.

Another platform for me to rant my already redundant diatribe on.

They are probably trying to do the same thing that Napster tried to do...introducing music and video that you have to pay for. I'm sure it will work just as well as Napster's attempt.

This is EXACTLY what Azureus tried to do...Azureus was a good BT client but then they changed it's name to VUZE and tried offering more ''legit'' offerings. They even had a USB version which you had to pay for.

I don't know if these were successful or not. You don't hear much about the Vuze-To-Go USB dongle now do you?

i would think the paid version is going to go down the alley of getting around ISP blocks and of the like...
