Submission TV Broadcasters Experimenting with BitTorrent

ernesto99 writes: Tomorrow a new version of the Tribler BitTorrent client will be released at a seminar of European TV bosses Geneva. Tribler is a Bittorrent client which aims to grow into a Youtube-like solution for Internet TV with torrent recommendations, search capabilities without webservers, and friends.
