BitTorrent Bundles are files filled with media from content creators. The service was launched in May, 2013.
The bundle uploader chooses how users can unlock the file, such as requiring an email address or a Facebook like. Bundles can also be embedded on websites for streaming.
This is BitTorrent’s attempt at legitimate file sharing, as their main peer-to-peer service faces its share of controversy.
At this moment, bundles are available from City and Color, Stones Throw, Hundred Waters, Eddie Izzard, Mad Decent, Public Enemy, and many more.
Now, 100 million bundles have been downloaded and streamed.
BitTorrent says 25 million people visit bundle sites every month, and that 25 percent of these people share a bundle on social networks. They also say that 75 percent of traffic on bundles is from returning visitors.
