This is interesting: CNet News is reporting that Bittorrent signed distribution deals with four indie film studios. The films, however, will not be available on a per-download basis, but as one or multiple subscription packages. From the CNet article:

"The filmmakers that signed with BitTorrent are Hart Sharp Video, Egami Media (a subsidiary of Image Entertainment), Koch Entertainment and The Orchard. Videos offered include documentaries, feature-length and short films, live music concerts, comedy recordings and TV programming."

The article isn't too specific about the details, and I couldn't get my hands on the press release yet. Interesting about this is that Koch and the Orchard also have music operations. Kind of makes you wonder whether there might be a future for album downloads or maybe some sort of mixed-media packages for Bittorrent as well.
