BitTorrent is looking to clean up their act (at least in the eyes of the media companies), and has such as begun to offer legal movie downloads and legal TV show downloads. In partnership with Warner Bros, Fox and MGM, they are using torrents a distribution medium to bring pay content to the desktop. To start, they'll only be offering the service to U.S. residents. Interestingly enough, they are also looking for an outlet for independent filmmakers, but seek to avoid the “YouTube” syndrome.

What is most interesting to me is the pricing pitched. Unlike other online movie services, the prices are very low for movies – at only $3.99 for new releases, $2.99 older releases. TV episodes will be dished out for about $1.99, which is more on-par with the rest of the industry.
