For those who use torrent apps like uTorrent, you’re probably more than familiar with the numerous ads that are plastered throughout the application, which honestly is a bit of an eyesore. Prior to this, uTorrent was free and also ad-free, but over the past couple of years, its developer has decided to throw in ads.
Now there used to be only one way to remove those ads, and that is by subscribing to the Pro tier which would cost $19.95 a year. Granted it’s not super expensive or anything, but it does seem to be a lot to pay just to remove ads. The good news is that BitTorrent has decided to make it cheaper for its users.
They have introduced a new tier called uTorrent Ad-Free, and as the name implies, this just removes ads from the software. It will cost users $4.95 a year which is significantly less than what the Pro tier costs. For the casual user who might not need anything else besides a P2P downloader, then this might be worth checking out.
As you can see in the image above, the Pro version will come with built-in virus and malware protection, premium customer support, the ability to convert your downloads to be usable on any device, and also stream your torrents on the spot, so if those features are of interest to you, then the Pro tier might be a better, but more expensive, option.
