Norwegian TV Deploys Their own BitTorrent Tracker.

Yesterday NRK announced that they will start up their own BitTorrent Tracker using the same beerware licensed OpenTracker that The Pirate Bay has been using for several years now. They will also supply Norwegian subtitles to all content and promise to link to your subs if you add more languages to that. Why are they doing this?

By using BitTorrent we can reach our audience with full quality media files. Experience from our early tests show that if we’re the best provider of our own content we also gain control of it.

This is simply amazing and who knows, maybe Norway will be online Hollywood?
