bittorrent nowIf the current music streaming landscape is confusing you with so many different services being offered, we guess we can’t blame you. There are so many to choose from that there’s really no difference at the end of the day, and finding one whose price point and catalogue suits you is all that really matters.

Now it looks like we have a new contender in the form of BitTorrent Now. This is a new app that BitTorrent has launched for mobile devices and the web, with the intention of bringing music and streaming services to its users. However it seems that unlike other models, BitTorrent Now will be adopting a different setup.

For starters it seems to be catered more towards users who are interested in exploring music and video from lesser known artists and filmmakers. Some of its content will be free, while some will cost money, and some will be ad-supported, which like we said is very different from the current model in which users pay a monthly subscription and have access to the entire catalogue.

Now admittedly this model does get a bit confusing, but it does sound rather interesting and unique in its approach. Users who are interested can head on over to BitTorrent’s website for the details. It is currently available for the web and Android, with an iOS version planned for release soon.
