Showtime and BBC shows to air on P2P provider Vuse

Filed in archive Internet TV on April 10, 2007

Quietly, azureus launched it beta of a hi-def, Web video service called Vuze at the beginning of 2007. Like the heavily hyped upcoming TV/PC service Joost , Vuze depends on a P2P framework to deliver content to users and also requires users to download a client application.

And like Joost, Vuze is trying to sign up content deals with whomever they can. The site displays large media companies like Starz, A&E, National Geographic, and G4TV content right up with self-published content like Star Wars fan flick Reign of the Fallen. Last week, Azureus announced distribution deals with BBC Worldwide and Showtime.

This includes the U.S. premiere of BBC television series Sorted in HD as well as to distribute Showtime original programming like Weeds, Dexter and The L Word.

Vuze supposedly has already attracted two million unique monthly views.
