I guess you can make your own Blu-Rey now.
Those of you who just can't wait to get your hands on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-Rey (you're damn right I'm calling it that) might have something to relieve your waiting woes.
TPB AFK, a documentary chronicling the brief but tumultuous life of everyone's favorite torrent site, The Pirate Bay, debuts today
at the Berlinale Film Festival in Germany. But the film is making a more notable, if less orthodox, premiere today as well -- it's available for anyone who cares to to download it right from The Pirate Bay.
Whatever you may say about the film itself, credit where credit's due -- director Simon Klose
knows his audience. Check out the trailer after the jump.
More than one million people are expected to download the pilot episode of Pioneer One
, the new indie sci-fi series by filmmakers Josh Bernhard
and Bracey Smith
which debuted on Bittorent
-powered distribution platform VODO
last Wednesday, with P2P file-sharing giants such as uTorrent
and The Pirate Bay
also pledging their support. As of this post's publication, there are over 19,000 seeders for one torrent
of the episode.
It's an exciting vision of how entertainment content will be presented in the future: After all, why spend buckets of money trying to get your show on television when you can circulate it directly among the viewers? Who watches actual
television nowadays, anyway?
