Bittorrent has started a movie and tv show portal where you will be able to rent movies and buy TV shows and download them using bittorrent. In the TV show space they have launched with Comedy Central, G4, Fox, Logo, MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1, etc. They also have a couple of high profile movies for rent, Jackass 2, Superman, and Saw III. This looks pretty cool and the fact that the downloads are bittorrent downloads. This will help tremendously with the price of bandwidth. This sounds to be a great idea and may end up as one of the bigger movie download services.

The service requires the BitTorrent Client, Internet Explorer 6.0, Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Media Player 10 or higher, they say that different configurations may work but what they list is all they support. So that means it will probably work under Vista but they just don’t support it yet.
